Re: PIF: Little Vie Long Horse Hair

Terry...I don't have a whole lot of stuff...over the years I've kindly narrowed my stash down to the "what works" and "what doesn't work" ....but I find lately I'm starting the "disorder" in a small way. I do enjoy the horsehair brush and find the "it may work, let's just see" catagory is making som...

Re: PIF: Little Vie Long Horse Hair

I used the Vie Long little horsehair this morning and was well pleased with the results. I did a bit of background on the horsehair and it seems that it likes the harder soaps as the brush may be a little stiffer than the badger and softer than the boar. The "Van der Williams" mix was a great test f...

Re: PIF: Little Vie Long Horse Hair

I received Ed's most generous Vie Long horse hair today. It is a beautiful piece of work. I shall tame the whiskers at 0500 on the morrow :wink: and a "sit-rep" will follow. Thank you kindly, Ed. Semper-fi....Mike

Re: Dry Shaving

Now that requires some pretty large quihones...no doubt!!! I've never tried dry shaving because I just enjoy the "preparation" to much!!! Grew a beard in my younger days...but the military-man in me got the better of the whiskers and off it came. Nope...no dry shaving for this homey!!! Semper-fi Mike

Got wild an crazy....

Well...after being referred to as an "ole-stik-in-the-mud"....I decided to get crazy an buy a shave cream yesterday. Was at our local grocery (Ingles) in Murphy and picked up some Kiss My Face Key Lime. I must say...for a first shave with it, I am impressed. 18 hours later, I've barely got a trace o...

Re: Question for new members ???

Gary, good question and I believe it most definately encourages one to see that others are taking an interest and also taking the time to respond to a new post from a newbie..(myself in that catagory). Even a new DE or SR shaver can have some good intel to pass on. But mostly, I like to read where t...

Re: Knew better, did it anyways...

Thanks for the intel, gentleman. The product I was using (Brian) was the Razorock Fresco...a favorite for a long time before the "fat" bumped it down into second spot!! Joe's croap has served me well, I just didn't realize the difference in the "slickereryness" that I failed to produce. Thanks for b...

Knew better, did it anyways...

Set the "Fat" aside, for one of my name-brand croaps a couple of days ago.....and really hurt myself. Good blade, Muhle 89 and lathered up good. I have always shaved before showering, but after the shower, I splashed witch hazel and it hurt a bit. Then a bit later, put on the AV Ice Blue and 'bout n...
