Re: Which straight razor did you use today?

6/8 DD Cade homemade synthetic/knot unknown I think I remember which knot this is because I tried to give it as much legs (loft) as I could. I find this knot to feel a bit like a very soft tennis ball and this o.k. to a point but IMO, it needs to break and open on the face. It's a little reluctant t...

Re: Which straight razor did you use today?

4/8 J. Rodgers and Sons Green Mountain homemade synthetic brush/unknown knot Without a doubt my best shaving small razor. It would probably be considered a medium grind and has ivory scales. I was fooling around with some synthetic knots when I had my head injury and remain clueless as to what type ...

Re: Which straight razor did you use today?

6/8+ Crown & Sword Green Moutain homemade brush/ Shavemac pure Nice shave this morning. I have a love hate relationship with this soap. Great shaves, great post shave but I struggle with the lather. I'm going to use it exclusively for a couple of weeks and see how things work out improving my lather...

5/8 Bismarck Razor Works MeiBner Tremonia/Rhassoul homemade brush/ Edwin Jagger pure knot This is the knot that got me interested in pure badger hair. I ordered another Shavemac pure knot earlier in the week in the bulb style. I actually enjoy this little brush. The hairs are coarser but not prickly...

Re: Which straight razor did you use today?

Filly MeiBner Tremonia homemade brush/25mm Shavemac 2 band silver tip Strong & Scottish, well it certainly is strong. You get a nice hint of whiskey then a pretty heavy scent of peat (smokey) and that's what your left with. I could see a lot of people think this one's nasty but being a fan of vetive...

5/8 Le Minet MeiBner Tremonia, Indian Flavor Homemade badger/Semogue 2 band knot This razor reminds me of a Grelot to a degree. Excellent shave this morning. The MT Indian flavor was very nice, I'd say the prominent scent is lemon grass followed with a menthol feel. It's a too little soon post shave...

Re: TGN High Mountain White Badger Hair knot

If your willing to take the risk and want to be mercenary about the whole deal buy your knots directly from China for probably less than half the cost. I like to experiment with brushes so at some point I realize I'll be wasting my time and money and I'm willing to take the risk. Here are 4 brushes ...

Re: Which straight razor did you use today?

Brothers, Thanks. 6/8 Wacker Inox Soap Commander homemade brush, knot of unknown origin (Chinese) This knot is a terrible shedder. I figure I'll keep combing until it straightens out or it runs out of hair. It has calmed down quite a bit but..... Nice shave, have a good one. Happy Marine Corp Birth...

If it isn't a hard soap it isn't Williams, IMO. But I got excited for a moment.
