Re: Mitchell's Wool Fat and Hard Water

John, you may choose to buy another MWF puck, or maybe trade for one. My experience with MWF in the beginning was that I could not force it to lather no matter how hard I tried. I was a failure at it. I gave it to my son and swore I'd never waste any more time trying. After a while I asked him to gi...

Re: Tabac inspired

Last year I got a good deal on some refill sticks of Tabac. This week I put one in an old Irisch Moos tube (same manufacturer) and will be using it up from start to finish now through the end of the year.

Re: Nascar 2018

I'm still following the Nascar races. They're currently in the playoffs. There are 8 remaining drivers who are eligible to win the championship. All they've got to do is ---- WIN! Some guys get pretty desperate and find themselves in the midst of a big crash. Next race is tomorrow.

Re: Safety Razor of the Day

21 shaves on this Kai Mild blade. This is the point I usually start wondering if my blade should be discarded. Today's result was just as expected - excellent as usual.

Re: Joke of the Day

I'm one of those passengers who arrives at the airport five or six hours early so I can throw back a few drinks and muster up the courage to board the plane. Apparently I'm not alone because I've never been in an empty airport bar. I don't care what time you get there. Even at 8:00 a.m. you have to ...

Have you used the most recent formulation of D.R.Harris shaving soap for a direct comparison?
My comparison is based on my last encounter with a DRH soap several years ago.

What made you smile today?

Today I was sitting here thinking my usual random thoughts, when I realized I was smiling. Why? There is an unwritten law that requires humans to be pretty much the same size. I'm not talking about a couple of inches or feet or pounds, I'm talking about the fact that nobody walks around 30 feet tall...

Re: New synthetic brush upgrade project

Bill, I lack the knowledge and tools that it takes to create a turned handle. Fortunately there are some guys out there that can do it, if anyone can.

Dr. Moss, thanks!

Re: Cyril Salter solid shaving soap (tallow)

If they're the same I respectfully suggest to DRH that they might be well-served if they can develop a soap fragrance as pleasant as Salter's, and lower their prices significantly to match Salter's. For the record, I prefer Salter's lather and performance over DRH. Harris (100g) costs 225% (two hund...

Re: Vintage Hammam - first impression

Olie, it's not mine, but if it was, I'd say damn the fabric bow and I'd have my rubber gloves on and I'd hold that little bottle very precisely under scalding hot tap water so the water was running only on the bottle neck and not the little stopper. I would let it get good and hot and I'd twist/ pul...
