Re: 2019-100yrs since my family started the business

Gary, the idea of custom one-off brushes is a great one. I think owning a custom made brush from Mr. Gary Young would be outstanding.

Re: Straight razors meet The General by Colonial

I will be eager to read early reviews sometime in the fall. Here's hoping the DE by Colonial will be just as outstanding and popular among shavers as the General has been. I like the General too much to even contemplate the possibility of buying one of these. I'll leave that to devotees of double ed...

Re: Musgo Real soap

Musgo Real soap. I bought one from Fendrihan after reading the posts from Tim and Clive who've recently used it. I agree with comments that have been posted here. Today was the first lather with my new puck. I like the scent. Triple-milled and it ought to last a while given how hard it is. Lather fo...

Re: Amazing NBA finals game

Although it is sad that at least two players were injured during the games, it is refreshing to know that the Canadian Toronto Raptors are now the NBA champions.

Re: Barbershop professional shaving bar

Today's impulsive use of the Barbershop soap was, to say the least, very rewarding. Instead of the soap I normally used, I picked up the Barbershop, ran warm water over it and loaded the brush. I was expecting the opposite of what I got. There were no weak suds, instead, it was thick white cream. I ...

Re: Small rotation of favorite brushes

Long live YMMV! :D It fuels the fires of discussion.

I believe it is true that quality boar brushes have also rendered budget badger brushes superfluous. It is undisputed, as you pointed out, that boars offer something a little different. It's the differences that keep the pot boiling.

Barbershop professional shaving bar

This soap was located at a flea market or estate sale sometime in the last 10 or 11 years, and has been tucked away in the plastic bins and forgotten. The photo doesn't show just how yellow it is (In a pretty way). It's got a mild not unpleasant scent. I've never thought of lathering it just for the...
