Re: experience with vintage badger

My 50 cents worth on this. I got an old Ever-Ready brush a few years back and bought a best badger knot from TGN. It is a very nice knot for the cost and will be fuller than your old one, should you decide to refurb.

Not only is Harris still a tallow soap, it is in its current formulation probably the best it's been since I started wetshaving in 2008. I find the current version fantastic.
Thank you, Tim.

Re: tallow --- Harris, yes. TOBS soap, I don't think so. Re: being a good soap, yes on both.

Re: Checking out some Taylor's soap and creams

I just need clarification. Are TOBS and D.R. Harris still tallow and good soaps? Have not bought any in some time.
