I don't know exactly what the original post was about, but on the topic of Anthony Logistics, I'm not ashamed to say that I used their brushless cream this morning. Sure, I usually use a brush and one of the English creams, but variety is the spice of life. And as someone who used Edge gel and Colga...

I also use a small stainless steel mixing bowl for lather. It came as part of a set of 4 or 5 that we use in the kitchen, although this small one never seemed big enough to be of much use for food prep--maybe whisking a couple of eggs, but that's about it. It's plenty big for a 25mm brush, though, w...

Just out of curiosity, did the smell ever go away? I have been using an SR8T in super badger for about 10 days now, and couldn't be happier. The "wet badger" smell was definitely present during the first shave, less noticeable during the second, and pretty much gone completely after that (and I have...

Interesting to hear this, after reading so many posts about the virtues of 26, 28 and even 30mm brushes (although I know there is at least one enthusiastic supporter of the Kent BK4 here). I also prefer more of a medium-sized brush. I am now using a brush with a 25mm knot, and although it's great, I...

In Mr. & Mrs. Smith (the 1941 Hitchcock film, not to be confused with the soon-to-be-released "Brangelina" flick with the same title), Mrs. Smith (Carole Lombard) shaves Mr. Smith (Robert Montgomery) with a straight--not once but twice. As she scrapes away, she notes disapprovingly that his barber h...

All new brushes have that lovely wet badger smell. It should go away after a couple of uses.

FYI, I walked by Pasteur tonight and stopped to look in the window. In addition to a wide variety of high-end creams/soaps (Trumper, Taylor, L'Occitane, etc.) they had a couple of Merkur razors on display. One was a travel razor and the other looked like a long-handle Classic. I fought the temptatio...

Thanks--glad to hear I wasn't seeing things! Now I won't have to stop in tonight, and my wallet will remain safe for another day. :D

I'm pretty sure I've seen Merkur blades (the 10-packs) on the wall behind the counter. Possibly also in the window display. I could be wrong, though. I walk past the place pretty much every day, so I'll check and let you know.

Agreed, Pasteur has an impressive selection of shaving products (at least the one on Lex near 62nd...haven't been to the other), all at very competitive prices. When I was in there a week or two ago, they did have Code Blue--I noticed since I had just purchased a bottle at Barney's (just a couple of...

Hello SmartShave, I am intrigued by the very positive reviews of your products and have ordered the 7-day sampler in order to try them for myself. As someone who has been plagued by ingrown hairs and shaving irritation over the years, any new product designed to solve these problems is welcome news ...
