Boo!

Just thought I would p in and say hi. Been years since I was here. I still have a ton of creams, soaps, SMF brushes and blades from my acquisition days so no need to turn to the Fusion side ever for me! I added a son to the family and am now a stay at home dad and loving it. Good to see a lot of fam...

I know the feeling! In 2008 I sold one of my brushes to help pay for my ticket to the BCS Championship Game when it was here in Miami.

Stop, don't use the buffing compound or any power tools. Go to an auto parts store and look for PlastiX. It is made for plastic. Specifically it is to polish the plastic headlight covers so they aren't dull. Use it just like a car wax with a rag. Don't press too hard, support the plastic from undern...

Shave Shop is my #1 hands down. If you got some of the old stuff then you are in for a treat. I had to speak to Barry Klein to get some tubes of the old version a while back. The new stuff is great but I am partial to the older version. :wink:

"Why rotation?"

Because I damn well can! I can rotate razor, blades, cream, soap and aftershave and not use the same combination for a couple years into the future. What that means is what ever combination I want to use at any time is available to me.

So the short answer is I rotate because I can.

Is this May 17, 2010? We have Gatorade-Charlie posting and are talking about Taylor reformulations.... This is very 2006. Maybe it is just a glitch in the system and when the subject of Taylor's reformulation came up my post went up on it's own? Was that 2006? It couldn't have been that long ago......

I always love it when the collection and the ads are together. I have an Aristocrat that came in a leather case with a tube of K-34 and two packs of blades. I don't think I found an ad for that set. I would be interested in how much it sold for back in the day.

I saw that ad as well. At first it had some of the old DE images as well. I thought it was a commercial for a TV show about shaving through the years. It caught my interest untill I figured it was just giving a release date for the new Fusion. If they give out freebie coupons in the paper I will cas...

About a year or so ago I had the same experience with the Shave Shop line. Except the old formula was in the tubes and the new in the pots. After exchanging emails with Barry Klein he told me to order direct from Taylors and in the notes ask for the old formula. They sometimes have the old stuff on-...

Mantic's Money Magazine Article

Funny thing happened the other day. My wife was looking through a copy on Money magazine that my mother in-law left at the house. My wife says "Look there is an article about shaving with those old razorrs". I glance over and see the Merkur picture. Cool! So while I am waiting for her to finish read...
