FT: My Harris Lav w/bowl for your tallow stick! ****TRADED!

TRADED Like the title says, I have a lightly used (<10 times) DR Harris Lavender soap in a bowl. I'd like to trade for at least one tallow based soap in stick form. Perhaps a stick along with a puck refill? What I can't get enough of: Tabac and MWF. Interested to try: Irisch Moos or any tallow based...

Thinking of Razor & Brush, and going back now and then to browse the product lineup makes me feel a bit sad. Not because all of the products are unavailable, because that's not the case, not counting Giovanni's house branded products. It's sad because he had put his heart and soul into creating an ...

WTB: 8/8 or larger straight razor!

It's been about 30 consecutive days of straight shaving for me now and I'm looking to take a step up from my Gold Dollar.

Looking for a chopper, preferably a W&B or Wostenholm but I'm open to anything. Please send pics and asking price!

What sharpening equipment do I need?

I am a relative newcomer to straight razor shaving and I am grateful to the members of this forum that have offered their honing services to ensure my edge is the sharpest possible. This is a suitable solution now, but in the future I would like to be self sufficient with my straight. I know there a...

How does Castle Forbes compare with T&H cream? Only curious because CF lavender is my fave and I'd consider some of the soaps recommended here if the T&H and CF are similar!

Chris, Your technical analysis is spot on! The blade coating absolutely acts like the lubricating strip on cartridge razors. When you think about it, it's pretty ingenious. I also prefer soaps when using a straight. I think it enables greater control over the moisture content of the lather because, ...
