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 ...

Jim, I admire your foresight. I have been wanting one of those since I first heard about it.

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...

Thanks for the details. I was confused when I thought the souvenir shop was selling those beautiful Penhaligons products. As you said, it makes a very attractive display.

Re: AOS Art of Shaving Peppermint shaving cream

Clive, I just popped over to their website. Yes, the good news is that they sell it by the tube. I have no idea whether they still offer the Peppermint.

Re: Brush of the day

The new SynBad brush has been great this week, however, tomorrow I'm going back to the SilkSmoke full time again.
