I like the smell. If you roll the stick on a counter to make it more round, you can slide it right into a QED Shave Stick Holder.

I have a puck in my apothecary now. Mine is unscented though. As far as lather is concerned it works very well. It is easily melted though and you can scent it yourself all you want. For the cost though, I will not be buying any more. Gonna give Soaptopia a try.

Well, if you look closely at that guy...His face is less than ideal to rake a blade across. Love him as an actor.

Today I decided I had to give the Eucris another chance. I super hydrated my 30mm Savile Row and went swirling away. I loaded lather into my scuttle and on my face..I then dipped the tip back into water and went swirling away again. I added more water to the scuttle and found I had to keep adding a ...

To dye or not to dye.

I am a total newbie to straight razors and I also happen to be a leathercrafter. I want to make my own strop as I have sides of leather in my possession. Should I dye the leather or not? Also what should I treat it with?

I have sampled all the soaps now......

All but 2 of them performed well enough for me to keep them in stock.
I have already made my comments on the Eucris and the other that didn't do well was the Rose. The lather literally disappeared in my scuttle between passes. :(

Someone else mentioned this to me so I gather that you store your creams vertically, rather than horizontally??
Well, right-side up. lol

I really have to say that I am blessed as well. My wife is great about it. She likes her potions and beauty aids and gives me no grief about my shave den. After all....I can walk up to her and give her a hug and ask her to sniff me..lol She appreciates the effort I go through to be a clean shaven, n...

Since my last post I have tried Violet and Limes. I am happy to say that I was well pleased. I think Eucris IS the culprit. Too Bad.

Don't let all those decimal places fool you; I have no idea!
So 5 eh? :D

Amazingly enough..That is what I have them set on.

Laney, Regarding the Trumper shops, the word I get is that the senior barbers there do not have nearly the clout that they once did...say back 20 years ago when Bill was still going regularly. If Monty Park spoke up, Ms. Berche listened. Today, it seems, the managing director, Ian Matthews has the ...

I have been nursing my Sandlewood for about 4 years. I know it is the older formulation. I guess I will try it wetter and hope for better results. With the sandlewood it only took a few swirls and I could work up a great lather in your...err the Moss Scuttle. :D I will keep at it. Maybe it is a Eucr...

I just used the Eucris. I find myself wondering why it is that all good things must end. I know that Trumpers has a Barber shop in England. This makes me wonder if Management listens to the barber's input, because I would have to think that after they reviewed the new soaps, they would have to have ...
