I received this soap today and tried it. The label indicates that it is made by Claus Porto. Basically this is just a Claus Porto lime oil face soap. I would describe the scent as honey/lime and I find it to be a pleasant mild scent. My shave routine includes a face wash since I tend to shower in th...

Hello again, Sorry for the lack of replies, broke my leg, anyone any advice on shaving with a broken leg?? It's a lot harder than i thought, ends of feeling like a 15 minute 1 legged squat.

I went to give these blades away today and realized that only 56 blades out of my stash are made in Germany. It just happens that the three packs I examined closely were German. The rest (outside of the 56) are made in China. So I'm giving the German blades away and will keep and try the Chinese bla...

I have. I use a good, heavy kitchen chef's knife and run the blade under hot tap water (I have very hot water as I keep the water heater turned up pretty high) until the blade is very hot. I then cut the soap immediately, while the blade is hot. I use a pot holder and push down on the blade and the...

Re: The Blade Count or How I lost my Mind and became a Hoard

Sure, but I really didn't want to deal with eBay. Thanks, Mike A direct link to a BIN auction is a problem? I thought you would be delighted. Perhaps I've misunderstood. Those Merkurs... a pack of them came with my Vision razor and I remember tearing up my face pretty good with them and wondering i...

One of my best, comfortable shaves is one of these in my '59 Fatboy. For some reason this blade/razor combo rocks for me. Ed B...

Hello Scott, So how can I convince you to sell me 10 SPPs and 10 P74s? Thanks, Mike ...But then I picked up a few vintage blades, well, vintage-ish. They just made me more curious about the Real Deal, The Real Thing™, The Real McCoy. The Gillette Platinum Plus (GPP), the Schick Plus Platinum (SPP),...

Scott, can you comment on the shave results you get from the Personna 74? Is it all that, and more? Or is it merely a good blade? Mike I haven't tried one yet. I'm exploring several new razors and am just using the Red IPs while I get it all worked out. That lets me discern some differences between...

Musgo Real Glyce Lime

Phil's use of this stuff in his SOTD (and others) finally broke me down and I've ordered some. All the reviews I've read suggest that this pre-shave face soap actually makes a noticeable difference in shave results.
