Re: RazorRock - S.Maria

How did the S. Maria do for its first shave? Quite interesting about the texture. I too, was under the impression that it would be a more firm cream ; perhaps along the lines of my tub of Acca Kappa 1869, and unlike all their previous soft soaps . Oh well, it's just another reason, albeit an unantic...

Monday's shave involved a guest appearance from my Georgetown G5 scuttle.* Semogue 2000 Top Secret Shave Cream Gillette Black Tip w/ 7 O'Clock Yellows Speick Aftershave Splash I don't want to call this a perfect shave.

Well, I've been a soap guy from forever, but lately I've had the itch to buy some old favorite creams, particularly T&H lavender and rose. May have to see if I can squeeze Harris lavender and rose into the mix, too. Ah, a few minutes back here and the debit card prepares to go into hiding. I've mis...

Gary, I bought a Progress and a Futur at the same time a while back. I never used the Futur (I never could get past a minor blade misalignment problem that apparently all Futurs have) and then sold it. Mostly becasue the Progress locked tight up every time and I liked that. So already I favored the ...

Marc, you should get one and compare. I would think about getting whichever one you preferred. Oh yea, and then do the same with the new Ikons.

That way, you can buy three and then I only have to buy one. I joke of course, but if you do decide to get one I will eagerly await your review.

Gil, that all sounds good to me. With Vulfix density I wonder if they have Vulfix like backbone.

Gil, I hear you. I think it was you who a few years back convinced me to buy my first one, which I miss greatly. I was going to replace it recently but had heard that they may have switched hairs for their silvertip to something not quite as soft. This pause led to to me buying a Kent BLK8 and an Ed...
