Even when I got the metal top off the holder, the blades were so stuck to each other that I used a worn blade to separate them.
That doesn't sound good. I still have some 65 blades in dispensers.

Re: SOLD: Vintage NOS Wilkinson 'Light Brigade' DE Razor Blades

I had a lot of fun separating some other English Wilkinsons stuck together with very old oil in a metal "push" dispenser. Ah, yes. I had that joy a couple times, too, with Personna 74s. I ended up tossing some into the recycling. I have a number of Personna 74 blades in dispensers. I had to pry the...

Re: Minor brush repair - worn shellac

Paul, I have used clear nail polish and it worked very well (it looked fine and it stopped further chipping of the existing finish).

Re: New Wilkinson Sword TTO (not the classic plastic version) available in Germany

I prefer a shorter handle, but I'm always encouraged to see something like this on offer. Thanks for the heads-up!

How aggressive is the shave from this razor? Can you compare it to any other well known razor?

Re: Bay Rum Shaving Soap Release with 20% Off

Omar, thanks for the reply. I wasn't very clear in my statement. My problem with FO (fragrance oil) is that almost all forms of it burn my olfactory. My skin isn't sensitive to it, as far as I know (because I avoid it). Some soap producers state in their product descriptions that EO, FO, or a combin...

Re: Bay Rum Shaving Soap Release with 20% Off

I like the packaging, too! My challenge when buying any kind of shaving soap is the issue of scent. I have become very sensitive to fragrances, as result of which I look for products scented with EO (especially citrus - I'm not very fond of lavender). I see that your Lavender and Everest soaps say t...

Re: SEMOGUE OWNER'S CLUB BOAR BRUSH

Great review. Thanks!

I really like the Semogue 1305 boar already. I don't buy much in the way of shaving supplies anymore, but you have me tempted with this brush.
