Re: Current state of hard soaps

I can say that the Harris hard soap are still top notch. Ditto for tabac and mwf. I think this thread is a good idea because I've been wondering about trumpers soaps myself. I haven't bought any in quite some time because I got burned on a cake of the coconut oil, and a cake of the sandalwood. Neith...

Re: Looking for cream/soap combination shaving brush

Hey guys, first post in a long time. Chris, a Kent bk4 can often be gotten more inexpensively from a U.K. vendor. The U.S. distributor Jacks up the prices here. You could always ask one of the U.K. Vendors for a discount to save on shipping too. Just shoot them an email before you order.

Re: FS: Simpson polo 8 super *withdrawn*

For me, it was the combination us such a large handle with a comparatively small knot. It just "felt" out of balance to me. I actually wish the loft was taller. I'm sure it's something I could get used to though, it is a very nice brush.

FS: Simpson polo 8 super *withdrawn*

Hello gents. Here we have a Simpson polo 8 in super badger. I bought this brush at the end of November. I used it for a week and decided that It wasn't for me and I stopped using it. The brush has only seen a week's worth of use. It's a great brush, but I just don't care for the handle. The brush ha...

Re: Buying a new brush

I ended up ordering the polo 8 super. I figured that I really like my duke 3, and I like the super hair, and I could give the handle a shot because I don't own anything else quite like it. As for the chubby 2, I actually own one of those too, but like my t3, its a two band. I actually was talking ab...

Buying a new brush

Hey guys, I got some money in my pocket, and I'm buying a new brush today. I'm trying to decide between a simpson tulip 3 and a polo 8 super. Now, I already own a t3 two band, a chubby 1 super, and a duke 3 (among others) for reference. I can't decide what I want. Would the polo knot be more like th...

Re: Chubby vs Polo

Thanks for the insight George. I haven't considered the polo 8 because I'm looking for a large brush to add to my collection, and I already own a very nice example of a duke 3 best, which could pass for a super.

Chubby vs Polo

Hey guys, I was thinking about treating myself to either a chubby 2 super or a polo 10 super. I already own a chubby 2, but it's a two band. I also own a chubby 1 in regular super. Any preferences from you fine gents? Are they basically the same knot? Thanks for the help :)

Storing a razor in a closed medicine cabinet

Hey guys, I have kind of en elementary question, but here goes; Do you guys keep your main razor in the bathroom medicine cabinet? I haven't done it really. I keep all my stuff in my bedroom closet and take what I'm using that day into the bathroom with me to shave, but lately I've decided that I do...

Re: My September 2014 Brushes

Very impressive collection. To this day, I still kick myself for not picking up a Rooney 3/1 finest in faux ivory when they were still on the market instead of that 3 banded heritage stubby 2 I had gotten that I hated and eventually gifted to my father in law. Oh well.

Re: Are You More Likely to Use Creams in a Scuttle?

I always use my moss scuttle as well. I pretty much use it as per the original instructions for the scuttle. With hard soaps, I have the added step of loading my brush first, but otherwise it is used in the same manner. I use whatever soap or cream I'm in the mood for that I have.

Re: Personna Hospital Use blade

After only a few shaves with these blades, I'll have to agree that these blades are excellent. They are very smooth, but man are they sharp. After today's shave, I had that exfoliating tingle on my face that I'm not sure is a good thing or not. In all fairness, I have been using ip blades of late, w...
