The thing about hair grades is that everyone's perception and preference is different. I've gone through over 30 brushes in order to settle on the 13 I currently have in my rotation. The best way to see what works best for you is to try it first hand and actually experience using the brush for a whi...

Thanks for asking. I've always dreamed of living in the mountains and figured I'd just have to wait until retirement. Recently an opportunity that was too good to pass up came along and so I'm now living that dream sooner than expected. I've only been here two weeks but I love it. Every morning on m...

I agree that this turned out really well. Thanks for sharing. Luckily, #66 seems to be holding up just fine so hopefully I won't need this information.

AoS Lavender is my #1 daily go to soap. It is easy to lather and the performance is top notch. This is the soap that replaced the old tallow Pen's soaps in my den after the reformulation. That statement speaks volumes about the quality of AoS soaps. The scent isn't as nice as Pen's but the performan...

I just noticed that these go for $93 at Royal Shave and $92.40 at Westcoast Shaving and those only have the Muhle head. For those who don't know the history of these razors, they used to come with a slightly more aggressive Merkur head. Then a couple years ago EJ teamed up with Muhle to develop a ne...

Simpson knots seem to vary quite a bit from brush to brush and this knot is on the large size for a PL8. It is ...

FYI, SRP doesn't allow discussion of razor values so you'll need to find another approach. I'd follow Gary's advise and look at your paypal records. Good luck with your sale!
