Really? With the discount, this brush seemed to be just about the same price at Atkinsons, no? Thanks for the input!

T&H Plisson Brushes

Guys, I noticed that their website sells Plisson brushes. It says they're the European White Mountain badger hair. Anybody know if that's the HMW that everybody is always raving about or the European White, which seems from the Plisson webstie to be their second from the top? -Matt http://www.truefi...

Thanks guys! I'm still not sure what a typical amount to use would be. If were talking about the nether regions, or say, upper back. Are we talking about a shake or two from the bottle or ore like a teaspoon full or so (8 - 10 shakes)?

Thanks,
Stupid Talc User

Cutting down a Feather for an Injector

I've read here taking the Feather disposable blades and cutting them down to fit into an Injector. Well, I bought some try and tried this morning, however, my cut of the blade wasn't that smooth so I could feel the side of the blade on my cheek while I shaved (ouch). I used heavy sheers (probably no...

Mr. Taylor vs. Shaving Shop

Trying to decide between these two TOBS sents. Any favorites, thoughts or suggestions. Thought I'd do the cream and the aftershave lotion. I love lavender but I also like citrus.

Recently, I too have gotten into using an old injector I bought off ebay. Was was wondering, generally, how many shaves to you guys get out of the Schick injector blades. I feel like three shaves (each 3 passes) is about all I can expect. What are your experiences?

Thanks!

I thought I was immune from the jedi mind trick as I work for Lucas, but I have bookmarked the Plisson site and have it on my list for after I get my Rooney 1/1 finest. I've got to stay on target for that one!

So this might be dumb quesiton, but where does one find a Plisson brush? My searches have just turned up forum topics on the brush, but no where to buy one.

Rooney Finest small vs. med?

I think I'm going to pull the trigger on my first Rooney finest. I have an emillion and a 3,1. I'm thinking about the 1,1 but wondering if there's a reason I should get the 1,2 instead. I generally like smaller rather than larger brushes, but neither the small or the med seem like "large" brushed, s...
