Re: A Blast From The Past

My plan is to run out of all existing soaps and creams on hand, including my own homemade, on or before my 80th birthday, which I shall celebrate by getting a new electric razor as a gift and using it exclusively every day from then on.

Re: Shaving soap or cream of the day

Shave # 16 on the tube so far. Not much left of the tube. Best I've been able to get from a tube of Coates has been 18. Before that, it was 16. On this tube I might go as far as 19 or 20. We'll soon find out.

Superior 70 - the menthol I added makes for a super-frosty post shave sensation.

Re: Taylor Old Bond Street Avocado Cream gone hard.

Welcome to SMF! You should be able to rehydrate it if you add several teaspoons of water on top of the dry cream and replace the lid and set it aside for a few days. If that doesn't work to your satisfaction, the advice given above by Bruno almost always works. Use it as a soap by loading the brush ...

Re: News about Straight Razor Place forum

I can't respect someone who would use deceit to take possession of someone else's property. This obviously isn't the first get-rich-quick scheme based on the use of deceitful practices. Buying a company outright is not wrong, but stealing SRP is repulsive. I hope he fails miserably without leaving a...

Re: Home Page and Gallery

I'm sticking with the notion that it's probably obsolete and there are a number of practical reasons for abandoning it altogether. Most of us use external photo storage and posting options. In the early days I used the Gallery as a tool for posting my photos to the forum. I didn't use it just as a t...

Re: Shaving soap or cream of the day

Tabula Rasa I'm not sure how much longer I'm going to use this soft soap. I bought the Tea scent (coriander and bergamot) and the scent is becoming unpleasant. It hasn't changed but I'm really not enjoying it any more even though the performance is quite good. Sounds like it's time for the old "hea...
