Re: Synthetic Brushes and Optimal Size

Murray, following up --- the Tuxedo is a 24mm synthetic knot with backbone. These things keep getting better and better. Here's another thing I have learned about synthetics: they don't hog lather as much as badger. That's a good thing, because what benefit do we get from a brush that's jammed full...

Re: General by Colonial - one year already and not looking b

Gary, do you find that Feather and Kai DE and SE blades are equivalent across types (DE to SE)? One reason I would hesitate to even try the General razor is that I can't use Feather DE blades (because of the famous skin-thinning) and I experience Kai DE blades as harsh. - Murray Murray, the Cobra C...

Re: The Pet Showcase

I have some friends who have two Jack Russell terriers. One of them jumps up onto a lap when he wants something. They then go through the list of things he usually wants. When they get to the item on the list that the dog wants, he gets excited, wiggles, and wags, thus indicating what he had in mind...

Re: The Pet Showcase

I'm a cat man, myself, and I like animals with attitude. As such, I tend to favor terriers among dogs, as they have a little edge to them.

Re: General by Colonial - one year already and not looking b

I'm slowly adjusting to the status of being overloaded with non-General razors and non-Kai and Feather blades and little or no interest in ever using any of them again. Gary, I, too, have a LOT of shaving equipment that I don't use anymore and the market for used shaving equipment has largely dried...

Re: For Marmite lovers only

Years ago when I heard or learned about Marmite I looked for it locally (here in Florida, USA) and couldn't find it. I had since forgotten about it until seeing this thread. But now, in the Internet age, I just checked and found it can be ordered on Amazon. Hmmmmm. I will have to give it a try next...
