Re: Anyone tried Holy Black shavette?

I tried the shavettes, gosh, 30 years ago, but it was just to satisfy my curiosity. Flimsy and unsubstantial are my dim recollections.

Re: Burt's Bees Shaving Cream

There's a reason it doesn't sell well. Due to the novelty factor it sells once but those who try it don't buy again.

Re: Longevity of ARKO Shave Stick

Pete it has been some years since I last bought Arko (still have 10-12 sticks left) but the last time I looked it was widely available. Check with Phil at bullgooseshaving.com. If he doesn't have it he may be able to help you locate it.

Re: Razor Blade Sharpness Testing

Sounds ambitious, best of luck. One caveat though, you may find the same blade shaves differently in other razors.
