I had told myself "No need for more brushes" but I just dropped an order for the natural horse hair model. I've got an Omega boar, a Simpsons CH1 best and a Panchetta silver tip in the rotation, and a muhle best badger I use for travel. To date this had been enough for me to hold of all out AD. *sig...

(a) Produces lather (b) Is ergonomic. (c) Is aesthetically pleasing. (d) Exfoliates. For me (b) has been moving up in the list. The only complaint with my Chubby 1 is that every so often the soap/water mixture gets on the handle and I have a tough time setting it down without dropping it. I may be t...

If you're serious about functionality and working reliably, the iPhone can't be beat.

Looks like we need a coffee thread as well ;)

What kind of coffee do you caffeine freaks prefer? For me it is India Monsooned Malabar the local coffee roaster imports the beans and roasts them onsite. They are best within a week or two of roasting. My roaster makes a dark roast out of them but due to the drying, monsoon soaking and re-drying of...

this may border on off-topic. Sorry if that is the case. Where I work in "corporate wonderland" ;) there is a cafeteria where they use Bunn coffee makers plumbed into the building's water supply.

For me that would be a nice bouquet of sulfur, charcoal, and potassium nitrate and maybe a slight hint of lead, antimony and barium.
