I am adding up to $500 plus the brush below in trade for the right used Rooney Finest. My preference is for unusual handles (Emillion, Urn/Polo, etc.) or Styles 1 & 3 (sizes 2 & 3)...

Re: A brush conundrum

Full refund received, though not the tracked return shipping (~$25)! No communication from manufacturer. Just "dispute closed" message from PayPal––had to go back see if the refund was actually processed, which it was. So in the end did the manufacturer handle this well enough for me not to be super...

Re: A brush conundrum

Hello, I wanted to provide an update. The brush made it safely to the fellow who graciously offered to try it. His analysis: the brush did not correspond with the description of this grade or the numerous examples in this grade he had tried. He described it as very scritchy, more scritchy than the g...

Rooney - Broad Arrow Boar, ca. 1940

Hello, I wanted to share a picture of a vintage Rooney. It has a wood handle with a metal collar, probably of lead, and boar bristles. It is bears the broad arrow mark, designating it as property of the British Armed Forces (along with "Warranted all bristle" and "Sterilised"). The code 1940 is in a...

Thanks, Ron. I hadn't thought about it in those terms and didn't know more handle and knot options were on the way from Paladin.

Re: Wilkinson Premium Chromium: Same as Light Brigades?

I loaded a fresh LB into the Feather AS-D2 this morning. I am still learning this razor (and discovered that it cuts well with more of the cap touching the face compared with the Slim), but I got the impression that the LB is not as smooth as the Feather blade in this razor. It did give a very good ...

Paladin and M&F

Hello, I am posting on a topic I I have been considering for a while. I have hesitated to post (and am sharing these thoughts here only, since SMF is the most level-headed forum) because I might be accused of trolling. That is not my intention. I am perhaps one of the lucky ones: my very first messa...

Re: Wilkinson Premium Chromium: Same as Light Brigades?

Yes, that is the true test, sir. I bought the Feather AS-D2 early this week and had used it exclusively with Feather blades up until today's shave. The Feather blade in the AS-D2 has given me cleanest shaves ever. I expected the Wilkinson Premium Chromium to be like my prior experience with LBs (mos...

Wilkinson Premium Chromium: Same as Light Brigades?

Hello, I picked about a number of packs of Wilkinson "Premium Chromium Double Edge" blades. These are Made in England and supposedly contemporary to the "Light Brigades." I am curious if these are thought to be equivalent to LBs. Thank you. http://i.imgur.com/rGWYAuw.jpg http://i.imgur.com/NriIV4z.j...
