I prefer the scuttle, that way you get a creamy WARM lather that just feels great. However, I have to be honest and say that most (say 85%) of the time I lather in the palm of my hand. Maybe on the weekend, when I'm less lazy, I'll use the scuttle. Now I have nothing to prove that one way is better ...

For those of you that use and love or hate CF, how do you load your brush? I have mine done professionally. Seriously though, it depends on how lazy I am. My 'preferred' method would be to heat up my Moss scuttle, place a dollop of CF cream in the bowl and start creating lather that way. In my lazy...

Cliff, You've long extolled the virtues of the Castle Forbes creams. I remember buying my first pot of Limes because of your endorsement. It's good to see you back on the forum. Dammit I've missed you! :lol: Ren Thanks Ren, I've missed this place too, although I have checked in from time to time. I...

Castle Forbes, Castle Forbes and Castle Forbes. I alternate between the Lime and the Lavendar - couple days lime, couple days lavendar. A piece of heaven.

Witch Hazel does almost everything. I use it as an aftershave. It is also great for mosquito bites, cuts, and scrapes. It even works good on hemorrhoids. I splash it on my face when I do not feel like washing. I also keep some in a spray bottle. I hope you splash it on your face first. #-o Cliff

I think this razor would have had hearts aflutter a year or two ago, but the cut down featherjector trick has waned in use and the Cobra doesn't seem to be getting the fuss it deserves. It was sold out when I last looked on Classic, so it must be selling okay. It's a great razor, nicely designed an...

Ever dance with a COBRA ?

In reading over past posts I came across some info on the Cobra Classic injector. An injector shaped razor sold by Classic Shaving that uses a full disposable Feather straight razor blade. Long story short, I decided to get one and give it a try. Figured I’d blame you genius’s that wrote about it if...

To help keep within your budget. don't be so quick to throw away the disposable razors. Do some reading, there are many shave forums and most have good info. Get a decent badger brush; for inexpensive starters I can recommend Sue at St. Charles Shave, she has an inexpensive starter brush. http://www...

Witch Hazel is a part of my shaving routine, I like it's antiseptic astringent properties. A liberal spray after cleaning up )I let it sit on my face 30-40 seconds) - followed by a cool rinse and then my skin conditioner. I "brew" my own by taking the unscented Thayers with Aloe and adding a few dro...

The feathers (from Pauldog also) have been my "go to" blade for years now and I don't see that stopping. Every time I try something new - I end up back with the feathers.

Regarding the possible "shearing" of badgers. Do you think you'd like to try to shear this??
