Re: For Marmite lovers only

. . . . it all goes wrong if you use too much, just like Lea & Perrins used for the same purpose.
This helps me understand what Marmite is. I've made the Lea & Perrins mistake just once, and I'll never forget it.

MWF smells like the old female perfume White Shoulders if I recall.
That rings a bell! I think my mom used something that I swear was almost identical to MWF. This is one of those scents that I like for a little while, then I quickly get pretty tired of it and have to let it go.

Re: XPEC Shaving Cream

After about 24 days using the XPEC, I'm getting quite accustomed to having no fragrance. Don't miss it at all.

Fantastic looker. How easily does it splay? Does it work well for lathering on the face with a circular motion?
Two latherings with this brush now. It splays and face-lathers quite well in my opinion. It's not floppy. Easy cleanup and fast drying.

Re: SilkSmoke synthetic brush

Now that the SilkSmoke knot has been installed in a new leadwood handle finished with deep CA, created at my request by Vladimir Ferdman, I'm a very happy camper. I used it this morning for the first time. It has a bit more backbone than the Monster I've been using for the past few days. Soft and sm...

Re: Back to a two-pass shave

Ira, that lingering residue is the key for me. Without that slickness following the lather pass and a splash of water , the soap or cream is dead to me. As you say, just water and no lingering residue is lousy. I have thrown away or stopped using a number of soaps and creams that aren't as slick as ...

Re: Back to a two-pass shave

If the soap or cream I used on the single ATG pass is fortunate be as slick as I like, the water-only pass is exquisite. Any that aren't slick in the touchup water pass are not my cup of tea, and are gathering dust "in the box", or in the dumpster - it doesn't matter which.

Re: The Science of Sharp Blog

Just this afternoon I was thinking that even though the scripted method Todd provided (with much thought and effort, which is deeply appreciated) didn't work for me even though I wanted it to, I should look at a more conventional means of sharpening the Red Imp Wedge. I like that razor and now that ...
