Re: Tabac and Prorasso soaps - $28 Shipped CONUS for both

I really like both of these soaps. And the Proraso in the plastic bowl is good for travel. :D

I'm not finding any Z's yet, but there's another one in a blue case (darker than the blue-tip's case) that I've somehow misplaced in the last couple of days. It has a black plastic tip, and it's not an aluminum handle.
Thanks for looking, Paul. I'll check elsewhere for the Z4.

Re: Williams Redux

Williams...

I recently dug out a puck from my stockpile but have no idea about the age. I'd guess 8-10 years. Been using as is with a Semogue 1250 boar and it lathers well enough for me. I have tallow soaps which I like better, but Williams does work.

Regards, gents.

You know, I was thinking maybe one-third used, but could be half used. Unless I pry it out with a knife and post a pic, I really don't know. Maybe should lower the price to $25 to just be sure
Sam, I understand. I'll take them for $25.00. P.M. coming.

I think I have a Z, but I'll have to peek at several to see if there's also a 4. Quite a specific request!
I know, but I was born in Dec. of '54. :D if you don't have a Z-4, let me know what you have. Thanks.

Re: In Praise of the Ordinary Razor

Roger, if the 34C is a Merkur with a fixed head, I believe the Edwin Jagger is a tiny bit milder. I'm intrigued by the General, but I'm wary of the blades. I require a mild razor (Mergress on lowest setting; Rockwell on 2) and a sharp blade (but not Feather-sharp). I see people here saying that the...
