I get that as well. Another thing is the google search. Useless for finding old topics and posts on this forum.

If you want the scritchy feel you need a two banded finest. They are scritchy even in taller lofts.

Personally I would keep it for awhile and see if it doesn't settle down. I don't know how true it is but I once read in a thread on this topic that a shaving brush has something like 15,000 hairs. I know that when I had a shedding Plisson JJ at Atkinson's told me to keep and use it for three months ...

WTB - Trade? Pre Vulfix Simpson's Polo 10 Super

Looking for a lightly used pre Vulfix Simpson's PL10 in Super. One with a label preferred but not essential. I have some Rooneys to trade if that was preferable to $$. No shedders please. PM if interested.

Richard, I was feeling the same way as you when I first got mine, man is it dense and mixing up lather was a pain. But as time went on the properties of the brush changed and it works superbly now, took me three months to break it in if you will. Same here. It took awhile. Full disclosure, I am a b...

If you want to dip your foot in the water instead of diving in the most cost effective avenue would be a corncob pipe. That is what I started with and I still occasionally smoke one. It was good enough for General Macarthur so it can't be too shabby. The Peterson system pipes have been around since ...

Slant-Fan, here I found a pic of a really old Progress that was in this box: http://www.bilder-hochladen.net/files/vwt-2m.jpg http://www.bilder-hochladen.net/files/vwt-2n.jpg The Progress looks different to the current one at the head and I wonder if this box is even older than the cream coloured b...

I have had an '01 E250 for the past seven years. Before that I had a '78 Chevy Beauville for many years. I had a couple of hundred thousand miles on it and still ran great but it was so rusted out that I was embarrassed to drive it. No complaints on the Ford. It has been a very dependable vehicle. U...

I have two of that model both with cases. Like Chris's one has the loop the TTO fits into and the other does not. Neither one has the crown. So what I fail to understand is if the model 58 which is an HD Rocket with a different knurling on the handle was only made in '53 why are there cases without ...

I have 2 of each and there is not a great deal of difference. The EW is way more bang for the buck and a fine badger hair.

Hi there! Slant-Fan, one of the last pictures you posted shows a case that I've never seen before (the one with the blade-dispenser inside). It looks a littlebit like the case of the Pomco Diagonal-razor. Another question: Are the shaves with the current Merkur slant the same like the shaves with t...

Here are two more. It occurred to me after posting above that the OP requested Hoffritz cases. Since they are re-branded Merkurs I posted those to illustrate the various cases. Here are two more with Hoffritz cases. A gold plated 37C and a slant travel razor. IT is not clear in the photo but the ham...

Here are some older Merkur slants in their boxes. The gold one is marked Merkur and the silver is stamped Pomco but is made by Merkur. I have heard that Merkur used this cream colored Bakelite box in the 1920s but I can't confirm that. The Pomco and the gold Merkur both have the same box and both ha...

Great razor. The long handle gives more leverage and the heavy ring under the head puts the weight where it is the most effective. If you like the standard 37C you will probably love the long 39C. Just keep the no pressure thing in mind.

I go along with the Kaptain on this. I have Coticules, Eschers, Shaptons, Nortons and Muellers and have lapped all with the D8C 325 with no problems. Sorry about your yellow/green. It should still be usable but that would ruin my day too.
