Re: Coates Rose cream

And it was an exciting cream. I just received a new pot of Taylors Rose and it's perfect. These firms are still making great creams. Enjoy Sunday gents.

Really enjoying the Cobra (and this is from someone who shaves with the Feather) with the Kai mild blades. I find them smoother and less harsh than the Feathers. Great razor.

Re: Cobra Revisited

I heard that Classic is aware their suppliers molds are aging for the Cobra so down the road we will see another one. A stainless model would be wonderful and expensive! The Cobra is so very efficient and the wide thin head, although intimidating at first sight, shaves wonderfully. Ah, NS...I rememb...

Re: Cobra Revisited

Apparently they may be working on another model. Might be a year. Great razor indeed but it is a little awkward in presentation. Btw...great review from PEI.

Re: Can anybody offer a prognosis on this...

As much as I love the other aspects (DE's, soaps and creams) the Simpson shaving brush is still a thrill. Chubby 2 Manchurian this morn from the Irish Sea shined. Somerset is proud.

Re: Merkur - HD Impressions?

A walk down memory lane Paul. A lot of us have a bit more white on top for sure. How time flies. Still have one in the travel bag. A little aggressive for me but an efficient and appealing little 2 piece.

Re: Taylors Rose shave cream....Today

Bryan, I don't see it listed either but like the Grapefruit it's one of their newer creams so hopefully it will surface. The Trumper tubes spoil many of us and I find the Taylor tubes can be a little runny. This is good news indeed. I had a pot of the Rose a year ago and it was fantastic with that l...
