Re: Brush of the day

Razorock F-400 Synthetic. Another very large brush, 34MM knot, 65MM loft, 151MM total height. Loaded on puck for about 60 seconds and straight to lather bowl. This brush made enough lather for my 3 face and 3 head passes. Lathered 3 face passes without returning to bowl- next head shave I returned t...

Re: Shaving soap or cream of the day

Razorock "What The Puck Orange Sunrise", this is a triple milled soap that created an amazing lather with a very pleasing orange scent that is not overpowering. Soap has great glide and cushion. Post shave feel is excellent.

I lathered on the puck for years. That is the way my father and grandfather lathered. I believe this is the reason I have no trouble creating a good lather with Williams. In the past few years, I have gotten away lathering on the puck-except for Williams, as I bowl lather now. Will revisit this in t...

Noxzema Shave Cream

While browsing the Italian Barber site I noticed Noxzema Shave Cream in stock. The lone review was very positive, anybody here tried it? I may have to give it a whirl. I was fortunate in only adding one item to my cart- a 34MM F-400 synthetic brush.

Re: Some thoughts about razors and blades

I agree with Basil. That is why I am not interested in the hype about new SE razors. I have borrowed from friends and tried six of them. I found all six to be excellent razors, but shaved no better than my vintage SE collection. I experiment with soaps, a few creams, and brushes. This is plenty vari...
