Re: Lentils

Chris, I would be interested in your chickpea curry recipe. I sometimes buy it ready-made in a packet. I mentioned lentils because they are pretty easy (you don't have to pre-soak them!). I sometimes make a dahl from a recipe from "How to Cook Everything". 1 Cup of Lentils, 3 cups liquid (I usually ...

Re: 9 years ago today I joined SMF

Richard (rustyblade) and I have a very slight connection as I once bought his massive shedding Tulip 4 back in 2007? Loved that brush and never should have sold it but it went out in a massive den clearing when I decided to give up DE shaving and embark on straight razors. I sold it and a huge lot ...

Holy crap I joined over 10 years ago!

I was a 28 year old baby with a bad shave when I joined. Now I'm an old man approaching 40 with slightly less hair but much more handsome if I do say so!

Lentils

With the prices of food in Canada reaching historic proportions...and meat going even higher... The frugal old curmudgeon in me wants to cook more lentils. Problem is most dishes just seem to end up tasting...bleh or overly similar to every other lentil dish I've cooked. I've made lentil curries whi...

Re: AOS question

I stocked up on old AOS years ago after one of the first rumours of a reformulation hit the airwaves. I felt silly...but several years later it was reformulated. Vindicated!

Re: Mitchell's Wool Fat

I've taken to rubbing the wet cake of MWF directly on my wet face, as I do with my sticks of soap. It works well for me and virtually eliminates the frustrations I had when loading my brush directly from the cake. When all else fails, the "shaving stick" method works, a.k.a "super concentrated soap...

WTT for Rose Shave Cream

Anybody have NIB Rose shave creams? Taylor, T&H, Harris, Trumper? I have for trade NIB AOS Lavender and/or Sandalwood shave soaps (old formula). Also have Institute Karite Shave Soap NIB. Depending on trade value I can combine two soaps (ie Harris is valued higher than Taylor).

Re: Are Simpsons brushes still shedding?

I should have returned them at the time, but I was too lazy. It's too late now. The Colonel is unusable it sheds so much, it sheds about 15 bristles per shave at this point. The Duke isn't as bad, maybe 5 bristles per shave.

Re: Are Simpsons brushes still shedding?

I have a Duke 3 and Colonel X2L from 2-3 years ago that both shed and shed. Damn shame because that Duke 3 is such a nice brush/size.

Trade: Want MWF

Turns out I have no Wool Fat....

I propose a trade for a new puck of MWF.

I have available: a brand new puck of Institute Karite, or a new puck of Trumpers Oxford Blue (this is the good old stuff, tallowate, scuttle size). Shipping from Ontario.

After all these years (rose shave soap)...

Nobody other than Trumpers makes a rose shave soap yet? Last I remembered the Trumper soap caused my skin some bother. I haven't paid much attention to the shave scene in a while and thought I would look up an order myself a nice Harris Rose Shave Soap. Not happening.
