Re: Atlantic City Casino Barbershop Shaves

John et al: I have probably had about a half-dozen barbershop shaves in my life ... all but one with straights ... and none of them was as good as the shaves I get when I shave myself. A couple of those shaves were at Trumper's in London years before the various regulations about razors, etc. went i...

Re: Problem with some shaving creams getting hard . . .

According to the people at Trumper their shaving creams have a shelf life of about 3 years. I have my doubts about that when it comes to tubs but I suspect an unopened metal tube of almost any cream would be good for at least three years and probably longer. I have used tubes of Trumper's Almond tha...

Re: You only get two razors; which & why

The two I have and use: Futur and Power Fusion.

My guess is that over the past 60 plus years I have owned and used
25 or more razors. These are the two best ... so far!

Squire, you are getting into dangerous territory here. I bet you have told her there is nothing better in the world for a woman's
shaving needs that disposables!

Re: Hello all, so tired of electric, need to change!

You might want to try a combination ... use the electric to get the heavy stuff off and then finish with any of the razors and blades recommended (except Feathers which I think are too sharp for someone not experienced in wet shaving ... and even for a lot of people who are from what I read here) un...

Squire, I would like to think you're right but I would have to have Gordon's vote, too. My wife, who uses disposables, is ineligible. Fortunately!

Re: Trumpers creams

Craig, Gordon, others, you can be sure that Trumper and the rest of the high-end Brit companies read these forums with care (the Trumper people confirmed that they do in an e-mail to me) and are aware of what is being said. However, they do not respond because they say that anything they say one way...

Re: Trumpers creams

Gordon, it will continue as long as people buy the soaps. If the soaps are as bad as reported (I have not used soaps for decades) then they will deservedly die in the marketplace as all inferior products do or else the companies marketing them will improve the soaps and they will survive, perhaps ev...

Squire, I'm not so sure about the young part because I am old and dumb and still have a lot of fun. Maybe it is the dumb part that needs to be consistent.

Re: Trac II success

Gary, that may be a Canadian version of the TRAC11 because when the razor was introduced in Canada 1 million sample razors were distributed to various households across Canada and many ... if not all ... had squared shapes. In time various companies made knock-off razors for the cartridges and this ...

Re: Trumpers creams

I am one of those members Gordon referred to as not getting any bad pots of Trumper creams. I have been a devoted user of Trumper creams for more than 40 years and have never had a bad shaving soap or cream. I have had scents that I didn't like but the products were always fine. Now, my experience l...
