I just wanted to advise folks that I do not sell products nor am I compensated via cash or product in exchange for reviews.  I do receive products from time to time for the purposes of evaluations and pass arounds, but I do not keep these products for myself.   I have been approached by a number of companies (mostly Chinese) who manufacture razors etc. who wanted to send me products to sell, but I either decline or do not answer at all.    This is just a hobby for me and I do this for enjoyment and promotion of the hobby.  If this ever changes you will hear it from me directlySmile  

The only exception to this is BST sales.  I do move products that I either don't use anymore or don't like on BST forums but that's itSmile

As someone who enjoys your videos (and all the wet tubers for that matter) and values your opinions of products in the wet shaving videos I have a request. Spend less time feeding the trolls. They'll always be there and they'll always be looking to stir up trouble. I believe the success they have stirring up trouble by having you and other wetshavers address their accusations (especially in your videos) only fuels them. If the accusations they posted in the forums and facebook groups were ignored I think we'd find there would be less of it. It wont go away but I do think giving them that "hey he mentioned my drama on camera" only makes it worse. Just my 2c, keep up the good work. It is appreciated.

I totally understand your perspective but I wanted to ensure the record was straight.  There are a lot of inaccurate statements and assumptions that are spread at times and it's frustrating.   I have no plans to get in 'the biz' but if I ever do I'll come right out and say so.  I won't be a silent partnerSmile

Ive been approached a few time as well to review products but always warn then that I will be open and honest about the product I am using. So they send stuff knowing what could happen. Our integrity isnt worth a 20 dollar soap. Maybe if someone would send me a 200 dollar razor we could work something out. Tongue Big Grin
I don't care for BBS shaves. I'm just in love with the process.

Are you going to do an impressions video on PAA Otra and Sk-8 Shop?

In a way the trolls are actually good as they provide content & views. Most trolls don't realize that their minimum amount of annoyance is actually beneficial in other ways to those they are trying to hurt. At least as long as the victim of the troll doesn't give in & make a mistake.

Keep doing what your doing. Keeping the record straight, I appreciate the honesty and straight forward attitude. No BS! Haters will be haters.

On another note. I TOTALLY agree with doing the paa otra. I bought the smaller tin and am regretting it. I wish I had bought the 8oz cuz this scent is like blow your mind amazing. I really want to just order another one in 8oz but that seems unreasonable. definately will get that aftershave but am at a standstill because I am trying to save for Hawaii. What to do haha.

I have not purchased these two.  I might get Otra at some point but I don't have a lot of interest in Sk-8 shop.  I'm about the furthest thing in existence from the Skateboarding lifestyleSmile
