I cleaned a brush once (badger, with borax) and didn't see much difference between after and before. I'm not even sure it needed ...

Re: FYSA Dominica and Grand Bay

@El Alamein Thanks. I've thought the same, that there must be multiple manufacturers of this general type of Bay Rum. I do wonder now that you mention it, just how proprietary it can be (what could be secret?) given the ingredients of both Dominica and Grand Bay are simply Bay tree oil and alcohol. ...

Re: Lather hog

With two synthetic brushes I have I do have to drizzle water on the brush for the second pass because the lath...

Re: FYSA Dominica and Grand Bay

More FYSA... Anyone else ordered from California-Antilles Trading? This was first for me. I never received a shipping notice and I was beginning to get worried. But then order was delivered, and the bottles were packed very well. I was pleased. (And by the by, putting the bottles away in the cabinet...

Re: A Self Review

Interesting first post Ira and I couldn’t agree more with the advice you give. Learning to shave with a DE (and a straight too, I’m sure) IS quite a zen-like process. It takes patience and experience for sure. I particularly agree with your ‘short strokes’ advice, and that’s something I don’t think...
