Chris, First of all I would like to thank you for selling me a bowl of the Trumpers Almond soap(with a piece that had broken off of bowl and successfully reattached) as it is an amazing soap. As is my limes and rose. However I got a bowl of violet which is identical to what you experienced with the...

To be honest , the new Geo F Trumper coconut and sandalwood reformulations (with s...

I really don't how much the formula has changed, or if it has at all. One would think that the only difference in their soaps would be the fragrance added to them. In other words, I assumed that the "soap recipe" for each would be the same and only toward the end of the ingredients would there be va...

The Maddening Inconsistency of Trumper Soaps

Over the last couple of years, I have been primarily using Italian soft soaps such as Valobra, Cella, P.160 and Razorock. If I wanted a variation, I would turn to some of the artisan makers, particularly Mike's Naturals, QCS and Mystic Waters, or D. R Harris, for a hard soap option. However, as fall...

I restored several brushes last year and the TGN knots were excellent. I prefer the Finest 2-band knots offered there. I do believe the knots from Larry at the WhippedDog have gotten solid reviews as well, however, I have not personally tried one of them.

I just wanted to update, that I did a few lathering sessions with the brush. It has finally opened up and started making some nice lather. I do have to say, it is rather prickly, but ill keep working with it :) This seems to be the opinion of many who have one of the new Manchurian Badger brushes, ...

FT: Shavemac D01, Proraso, plus more

The following items are for trade. I'm open to most any offer so feel free to send them to me. I will note that I do prefer modern DE's over vintage, and I don't need any Cella soap, as I have a 1kg block ready to be opened. I will gladly put multiple items together for trades. 1) Shavemac D01 brush...

FT: Plisson 12 EW Plexi

I recently acquired this brush, and while it is beautiful, it will not be getting much action in my rotation. I have used this brush about 3 or 4 times since acquiring off the B/S/T. The brush does not come with its original box but is in excellent condition. I would like to trade this for, well, wh...

Glad to be of assistance, Gordon. BTW, it doesn't need saying, but I'll verify it anyway . . . Gordon's end of the transaction was equally as problem-free. Thanks again.

FS/FT: Gillette #66

I tried this nice Gillette recently, but realize I still prefer the shave of a modern DE razor. As such, I'm letting this one go to someone who prefers the vintage Gillettes. The razor is in very good condition. This is English made and rhodium plated (if wrong on this, please let me know). I don't ...

As my den reduction continues, I'm now to my aftershave stash. As these contain alcohol and will be shipped via UPS, I've arranged them in 3 groups. At this time, I will not split the groups. Each listed price includes shipping in CONUS. As these contain alcohol, these sales are limited to CONUS. Wi...
