Re: Badger Cull To End

Agree with Tim. I have a synthetic from both Jagger and Simpsons. They may not eat up soap as easily as badgers but performance is excellent.

Re: Shaving Brush Recommendation

I already have a Jagger silvertip synthetic and it performs nicely. No issues, dries quickly, washes clean. I ordered the T3 because I'm an exclusive face latherer and the chubby style seemed like a good choice. I'm more of a painter than a smasher so I expect the T3 will give me a good combination....

I have a T3 on the way although it seems to be taking the scenic route through Canada, Togo, and parts of South America before getting here.

I've been using a tie-on version made from an old t-shirt, pattern from the CDC website. Yesterday I bought a few ear-loop versions, with half the cost going to a local food bank.

Re: Gillette Heated Razor

And here I was dipping and rinsing my razor in hot water. How absolutely primitive of me.

Just to be clear, I was poking fun at the product, not the article which I thought was well-written and comprehensive.
