Re: Tribute Shaving Cream

Gordon, this is a good product. I've tried some bad ones. If they scent this stuff, it would be an incredible product. For me, at least.

Re: Tribute Shaving Cream

I’ve been using Tribute Shaving Cream for a week now. It’s available from the Tribute Supply Company. They market it as a “Manly Shaving Cream”. It comes packaged in a 4 oz. glass jar, metal lid, clean packaging. Nicer than the normal “plastic” tubs of my old standby Taylor of Old Bond Street or Tru...

Re: Tribute Shaving Cream

One shave does not a review make, but we are off to a good start! I'll know more in a week!

Re: Tribute Shaving Cream

There are reviews on Amazon. Tribute followed me on Twitter, which piqued my curiosity. A shaving cream that woks well with or without a brush? Once in a great while I'm rushed and don't have time to go through the brush routine, so this really got me interested. So, not having purchased anything bu...

I've been through a lot of brushes. This still remains an elusive one for me. Someday. Someday.

Re: new CCW pistol

My first daily carry was a S&W .38 special snubnose airweight with shrouded hammer. Love the gun, but with +P ammo, accuracy is not what I wanted. Now I carry a Firestorm 9mm. Absolutely love this fun. Two 9 round mags keep it operational. Easy to shoot and the most accurate of all of my pistols. It...

The BK4 will be my next brush. Not sure when, but it will be next. Unless someone wants to gift me a HMW!

I used Derby exclusively for almost a year. Ran out and tried the Astra blades. I've got to get more Derby's.

The only car I owned which had no warranty problems was a 1982 Oldsmobile Custom Cruiser wagon. I bought it in 1995 for a grand including the safety check, drove it for 2 years, and sold it for $500 as-is. Rear side window leaked in the rain, especially when I took a right turn -- I can only imagin...

I've sold Honda and I've sold Hyundai. I'm impressed with the progress that Hyundai has made, and especially with their tech features. Having said that, after my first test drive selling the Hyundai line, the only thing I could say was "That isn't a Honda". If you like Hyundai, that is great. But wi...

First shave with Cella. I'd give it a 7 out of 10. It will get a workout, I don't have many options!

Astra SP

Seems like no matter how many packages you open, soaps, creams, razors, aftershaves, pre-shave, post-shave, straights, brushes, stands, whatever, you get a new product and sometimes you just say, WOW! Happened tonight. 3 new products, one shave. Astra SP, Palmolive Shave Stick, Pinaud Clubman. Used ...

Merkur 38C HD Quality

I'm a big fan of Merkur. I bought their HD Classic and loved it. When the 38C was introduced, I got right in line. Great shaves and I love the heft. If you bought a 38C when they were first introduced, how has the finish held up? Mine is showing a lot of wear on the top.
