Re: Ask and ye shall receive - RAZORS. And BLADES

Paul, Thanks for your quick response. I don't have the Schick "Platinum" DE model to offer in trade. My daily DE razor is a Krona, and I continue to sing its praises, and believe every DE shaver should own one. To be honest, I have not checked out the prices for Injectors on eBay, as my vintage razo...

Re: Ask and ye shall receive - RAZORS. And BLADES

Paul,

Might you have a Type L1 or any of the Type N Schick Injector razors?

Gary,

Could I put dibs on the Krampert's Finest Bay Rum Acadian Spice shaving soap?

Kind regards,

Re: Review: TOBS Lime Luxury Shaving Soap

Ron,

The Taylor Luxury Lime does contain some shea butter, so you may want to take that into consideration.

Re: New Product: Lesismor Soap

Gents, I, too, was one of Tim's beta testers, and was so impressed with his product that I purchased several different flavors. These newest soaps are, if anything, even better than his earlier efforts. I concur with the assessments set forth above from Murray, Chris and Ron. I have not found a shav...

Re: Rolling My Own

Basil, Good to hear from you. Yes, I could certainly get by with Dr. Moss' soap ( and based on comments here I assume with Tim's as well ) if I had to forgo the top shelf English creams. I still prefer the creams due to the scents and I find them somewhat easier, less messy, to use but the lather a...

Re: Rolling My Own

Gents, I'm a little late to this party, but I, too, was one of Tim's testers, and found that even my least favorite of his experimental formulations are very good, and the best of the lot are simply superb, as good or better than anything else I've ever tried. Tim's soaps are the first to make me th...

Re: T&H North America Changes

Gary, The website says that T&H North America is under new ownership/distribution. The "Contact Us" tab takes you to a list of stores. The U.S. store listed is located at the Mirage Hotel in Las Vegas. This may or may not be the new distributor, but at least it appears that there is one. Regards, Ba...

You should also check out Eau de The Vert by the venerable French outfit Roger & Gallet, as well as Bulgari's Cologne Au Thé Vert, both very good, and both of which can be found online at prices that are not too dear.

JBC, You don't say whether you are looking for something soothing, or if your focus is more on scent. I don't need much in the way of the former, so my emphasis tends to be on scents I appreciate. For the budget-minded, it is hard to go wrong with any of the classic American barbershop staples such ...
