Re: SOTD July 6 - July 12

Sadly, no shave for me today (up at 4am and not home till 7pm), but I'll have a shave that's twice as good tomorrow!

This morning I shaved with my ancient Greaves & Sons Sheaf-Works near-wedge. It's a stubtail from the 19th century in the original scales and pins, and overall in very good condition.

Very nice, and I bet it's a good shaver. Very early 19th century too.

Re: Taylor’s shaving shop cologne

Seems to have disappeared from https://www.tayloroldbondst.co.uk/colle ... aftershave so it has likely gone. Trumper Curzon is quite similar to my nose.

Re: Face masks

And I guess it's time to leave the topic alone.

And to add to that, I was inspired to gather all the PJ-style brushes so they could line up for a group photo:

Re: A Hairy Situation!

Moving along, I brought up and used a Rooney beehive in super, and the Rooney 2007 SMF brush. The former was really quite good, but the latter is too soft for the long loft. It did inspire me, though, to try another long-handled brush, one of the Shavemacs I had Bernd make for me as bigger versions ...

Re: A Problematic Razor

Eventually I heard from the maker. He reckons it will hone just fine with a couple of layers of tape. As I said, caveat emptor.
