Re: Hot Cross Buns

I love Hot Cross Buns and yours look delicious. I’m too unskilled and perhaps lazy to bake my own so I buy them from Cobbs Bakery.

Re: More Medjool Dates

This thread reminds me of an episode from March 1979 of Fawlty Towers (a John Cleese Classic), “Waldorf Salad”. Absolutely hilarious. So, where do you get your Waldorfs from?

Corned beef and cabbage! Yummy! I've been craving this for a long time and I enjoyed it very much.
One of my favourites, especially with boiled potatoes.

Re: New Rooney Finests

Thanks, those certainly are handsome brushes. Have you had any issues with the Finest knot? I have a 2/1 Finest and the centre of the knot is starting to hollow out. When I examine the centre of the knot I see that the hairs are breaking about halfway down their shafts. I don’t think I’m a particula...

When you say “new”, do you mean Lee Sabini is producing Rooney Finest again? Or, are they new to you?

Re: Music

I like listening to the radio, at home and in the car. Whilst shaving I sometimes listen to a music station 1950s-1970s rock) and sometimes to current affairs, depending on my mood. When driving I listen to music in the main; usually it’s jazz.

Re: Semogue Caravela Mistura in Taj Resin

On my first encounter with Semogue brushes I looked askance at the metal ring. One day I decided to take a punt on their SOC boar with a cherry wood handle. When I received the brush my first impression was that the metal ring didn’t look half bad. I also figured out that it was more than a metal ri...

Re: Semogue Caravela Mistura in Taj Resin

Bryan, how does this blended brush perform in comparison to a synthetic? Sorry Gary, but I’m not a convert to synthetics. Currently I use an AP Shave Co. Synbad for a travel brush only. I like it better than the Muhle STF and STF v2, but none of these synthetics are a match for the Semogue mixed. I...

I like the looks of the Semogue resin handle.
And, it’s not just a pretty face. Every time I use mine I am amazed by how good it feels in the hand and on the face and how well it lathers. A hidden gem that will withstand the test of time.

Re: Croissants

Our local Italian bakery makes such good croissants that it seems pointless even to attempt to make them at home. I like mine with strawberry jam and a double shot of espresso; good grief, I’m making myself hungry. :D

Re: Semogue Caravela Mistura in Taj Resin

I bought one of these brushes when the first came out. From my very first shave with it I loved it. My favourite knots are the shavemac and Thater 3-band sivertips, but I find the Semogue mixed has an excellent xcellent face feel with a little bit more backbone than the silvertips without being too ...

Re: TSA question re shaving gear

For the purpose of carry-on all liquids, creams and gels have to be carried in the prescribed re-sealable clear plastic bag and each must not exceed 100 ml/ 3 oz. Disposable razors and cartridges are permissible, but DE & SE blades and cut-throat razors aren’t. You should check the TSA website.

I haven’t had steamed pudding with Golden Syrup in years. We used to get it once a week at boarding school and I loved it; highlight of my culinary week. Good doctor, you’ve re-kindled my interest.

Re: My Beloved Semogue 1305

I’ve not tried either the 1305 or 830 boars, thus I can’t say how they compare with the Premium Boar. I came across an old thread on TSN comparing several grades of Semogue boar, but it didn’t cover the Premium Boar. It could be like buying a pig in a poke...pun intended… O:)

Re: My Beloved Semogue 1305

Good to hear from you Wendell. Fendrihan carries the Semogue Owners Club Premium Boar with the Taj resin handle. It’s a gorgeous brush and the Premium Boar knot is outstanding. I don’t think you can beat it.
