Jarmo,

I also like it here very much. I like other forums too, but this place has a whole different environment that I enjoy a lot.

By the way I just noticed your PM from Oct 7th today. Shows how observant I am. I didn't want you to think I was rude, but instead just very
inattentive! :oops:

I think buying more stuff is the best approach. A bar or plastic jar of soap or cream is probably the most innocuous-appearing article we can possibly have. Around these parts, I suspect the risk of loss is probably more weather-related, than anything else. If or when the tornado does go through, t...

Are you worried that burglars are going to break in and steal some of your shaving cream?

If I ever lose any of my shaving gear, my plan is to buy some more. :lol:

There would be about 15000 bristles in an average knot so it seems... I started to count them once but lost count after bristle 3,167.

That is the coolest razor ever, it's a shame your wife doesn't appreciate it!

I had a rattlesnake head (encased in resin) paperweight. The note that came with it said not to break it open and eat the contents. Strangely enough, even though I had never considered it, that made me want to do it.

The issue I encounter is ordering the drink. 60% of the time I stump the waitress, 25% of the time I receive a Gibson's rye, and 15% I actually receive a Gibson. I feel your "pain". I too have had this experience when ordering a Gibson, a Perfect Mahattan and a plain old dry Martini. With respect t...

I've got a puck in the levitating ceramic bowl on its way to me right now. I have to admit, the bowl was the primary draw, :oops: the soap will just be a bonus if I end up loving it.

I received the Menthol version and reviewed it at another forum. I was very pleased with the performance although I too felt that the menthol was missing from the formula. The price is under $3.00 I believe, and it is an exceptionally good product in that range. This will be my travel cream for sure.

It would be so cool if somebody actually did make a shaving soap powder, or flakes. I'd buy it in a heartbeat just to try it.

I agree on the Merkur blades. Other products that come to mind: Musgo AS splash. This is cyanoacrylate disguised as an aftershave. The first time I used it, I slapped it on - only to find my hands permanently welded to my face by this vile glue-like concoction. The only thing worse than its stickine...

Ron, *sigh* you're probably right :( . Sales numbers may not be down, because the demand for Tulips is probably much smaller than the demand for Chubbies. It's just disappointing that they chose the ugliest possible shape for PJs and Tulips. How much trouble would it have been, back when they were s...

In regards to the less curvy handles, I recall Richard mentioning in the "Gauging Interest" thread that Vulfix can't supply the older Tulip shape because they would have to pay to have it re-drawn. It sounds like it may be a diagram used in a CAD CAM progam? If that's the case, why not have it re-dr...

I can tell you that Richard, K, and I got a T2 specially made and mine looks just like the one on the right of the above picture. The hair is not dense and this gives it perfect lathering ability with creams and soaps. It has become my favourite brush for this reason. As you can see on the left one...

The bad machining on the razor pictured above - is this rare for a Progress to be that poorly made or is this common construction for these guys??

I've never broken anything, but my youngest daughter broke her nose at the age of 7 or 8, and then she broke her toe at age 11. She's rougher and tougher than anybody else in the family!
