Thankyou for all of the kind words, both for myself and my setup. I really do think it's remarkable the quality of setup you could go out and pick up off a shelf today if you you should lose everything. For as much as things are disappearing or else being reformulated beyond recognition you can stil...

I must say that I wound up with the All Stainless via an unfortunate incident with the best razor I've ever used; a Gillette Model #58. I was happily using that until I decided to take it on a trip abroad and due to me not packing it correctly or an overenthusiastic baggage attendant or I don't know...

Re: Checking In

DR Harris Pink A/S This is the key thing I'm concerned about as I'm just running out. It's the only A/S that I've ever liked and I use it year round so I'm hoping it's still the same. The scent has changed! It is no longer "rose", but more of a Lilac; however, the consensus seems to be that the cha...

I keep vacillating back and forth on a BK4 -- and at the moment have gone into a holding pattern because I am concerned it doesn't have enough backbone. Welcome back Chris. I remember reading similar things about the BK4 before I went and bought one - that it's floppiness makes it only good for cre...

Hi Christopher, That's a great product lineup you are using. And thanks for checking in. :) I have both the Windsor cream and soap and think they are both superb in all aspects. This is my first Harris cream so I can't speak to years past. So you bought five extra BK4s? Well done! No no, I was aski...

Just had a look around this very subforum, seems like I'm not the only one making a return.

Did someone hit the metaphorical bat signal?

Checking In

Hello there, It's been a while, I think I was last posting regularly here around 2009/10 and I just wanted to say hello again and make sure I've not missed anything major before I place my Christmas 'order'. I haven't really bought anything new since 09/10 except for my Feather AS leaving my day to ...

If i stay here and not elsewhere I can see it will cause issues. You know, you wouldn't be the first to do that and it's never really resulted in a problem. For the most part people avoid letting things get too heated here, in that way at least. I say if you enjoy the company here, and you do seem ...

Is there anything in the current line of Bic or other brand disposables that would compare to that sort of shave, or are they not worth bothering with these days?

An interesting twist. The LE interest thread on B&B was just locked. And I am no longer allowed to post or answer questions regarding anything to do with Simpson..... Looks like your front page interview was removed too, doesn't even seem to be in the archive here . Interesting turn of events indee...

Another thing I forgot to mention; even if they did have totally different handle designs with entirely new names, it still wouldn't sit right that they just ended one of the biggest and most long lasting business relationships in the wetshaving community today in what seems to have been such an unp...

i'm a late comer to this discussion. i am also unfamiliar with gft's previous brush line.. so i'll ask: did gft previously sell a brush they called 'chubby"? did they previously sell brushes that had handles very similar to simpson's? i mean,,,are the concerned parties upset cause gft is selling th...

No shave for me either. Three days out in the sun watching the horses at Aintree hasn't done my fair English skin much good :(

Well yeah, but I'm saying if M&F has almost no recognition even on a shaving forum (and here's a different case anyway where we know the manufacturer so the branding is negated somewhat) then I don't know where else the brand name would carry that weight such that it would be worth purchasing ahead ...

These are £0.49 (~$0.80) in the supermarket around the corner from me, jus' sayin'. Occasionally they have them half price too...

I'm completely clearing them out the next time it's half price. :D

I wonder why he'd purchase the M&F brand anyway. Even on this forum there seems little recognition of the name, would it really matter one jot if we were buying these new brushes from the 'Lee Sabini Brush Co.' and not M&F? I suppose he could trade on the 'Founded 19xx' with it like this, but I don'...

Did anyone order the wooden bowl version? Looks quite pleasing, and plenty wide enough to satisfy the query I had recently with the gents who were using a larger container to accommodate bigger brushes.

I wonder how expensive the shipping would be if its only going here and not as far as the US...
