FS - St. Charles Lavender EDt and After Shave Milk -SOLD

I've only used these a few times and each time, SWMBO asks me what I am wearing, with a frown. Not her favorite. So, my loss, your gain. Both for $12 US only and included shipping.

SOLD

I used to be a cop years ago. Let me tell you, there is not ONE criminal who does NOT know the sound of a shell being chambered in a pump. And a shotgun is not going to penetrate multiple walls. My Glock and Beretta 9 would do it no problem and keep going. The S&W 357 would do so as well. The Sprin...

Guys, I want to offer a bit of advice I figuered out a while back... do not perform any blade buffing with the slant! only bad things can happen IMO. :twisted: Not a problem here. Did it tonight with a Treet Blue fed to it. Now to think of it, the Treet did better than the Swede Gillette that was i...

Chris,
I searched their site last night but found nothing to reference shaving. Guess I'll need to get in there this week and find out for sure.

Two of my favorites are Pirate's Cove and a local source here in Oregon from the Soap Lady. I really like both and for the price of either, you can't go wrong to try.

For me it is just a matter of what I am using. Cream or puck, then a mug. If it's a stick then right on the face.

Welcome Saint Mark! Regardless of what you read or what you are told, every face is different and you will need to find what works best for you. Of course this is probably the greatest thing about wet shaving in that there is always something new to try. :D As far as addictions go, there are a lot w...

Swede's on a slant? Mmmm, mmm good shave!

While I have been utterly impressed with the shave of my slant, it wasn't until I slapped one of my Swede's in it this evening. My shave consisted of the following: Swedish Gillete (Would like to try a Feather at some point) Merkur Slant Pirate's Cove Coconut (yup, a cheap soap) WTG ATG A little buf...

Gee thanks Gordon, post about a shop not an hours drive from me. Guess it's time for a ROAD TRIP! Interestingly, I just recently found out that a local athletic club in Portland carries T&H, Trumpers and other fine products. Hopefully the shop is open to non-members. I guessif we must have an addict...

I was very disappointed with our local Nordstrom that I visited a few weeks ago. Terrible selection and a marketing display to be rivaled by 7-Eleven. While Macy's still only has the department store selection, at least it was larger and a much better display.

Got one for Christmas this year. Used it twice now and I find myself looking at my other razors thinking of an eBay listing. I love the shave I get from it. Only thing that is a nuisance is if any lather gets on the handle I notice it is much slicker than my other razors. Not a big deal, just need t...

Personally I think it is bogus. I've been watching some of these outrageously priced auctions and the one thing they all have in common, is bidders/buyers with little to no feedback. In this case, this is the buyers first time (going under the assumption no one has ever left feedback). Whenever I am...
