Yes, I have a large (200mL) bottle of it. It's a high-alcohol splash with an aquatic scent -- reminds me of Floris JF.

I think she uses clay in the cream soap. Sometimes, you have to allow the brush and some water sit and soak on the dollop. This helps the clay absorb some water, and improve mixing the lather.

My uncle once told me he used mop and glow floor wax on his dress shoes when he was in the USAF. Has anyone ever heard of doing that??? It does in a pinch, but the finish had a tendency to crack and flake off, especially if layered on over tme (had a buddy that did it, and it looked awful!). Bottom...

I really enjoy the Will G. products that I have. I would certainly have more if not for his passing. Unfortunately, many will relegate Will G. products to a lower tier because of being a "cottage" business, or without royal warrants, or without decades of lineage, or aren't manufactured by a certain...

A lot of people mention the Anchor Hocking glass bowls with lids. Apparently, they are sized perfectly to fit many of the soap puck sizes on the market today.

Urgggh! I have a single bottle of the old formula with the cork label and box. I've never looked into getting another bottle with the re-formulation, especially with previous comments on its performance/difference to the original. Honestly, after the last two posts by Richard & Chris, I'm even less ...

Sue,

Make sure you're still logged in. Every once in a while I am logged out without my explicit action to do so (I believe it is from the site cookie being deleted in IE7).

You can rub dish soap (e.g., Dawn) on the area that you don't want to get covered in steam. Just rub it on with a paper towel until it is clear and dry.

I usually leave the stick open (uncapped) until I'm done shaving. It is dry dry enough by then, so I cap it and put it back in the dopp for the next shave.

I've got some waiting in a closet for when the weather cools off.

Please download and review Dr. Moss' straight razor shaving guide (on the SMF homepage). Also look around the various video portals (e.g., YouTube, Google Video, etc.) to view some folks honing, stropping, and shaving with straights. There's plenty of information about hones on the various forums. S...

Every time I have thought similarly, and used a blade one more time, I've paid for it with a lousy shave. Just another data point for ya.

I've shaved her legs with a straight myself, but she is not interested in using one herself. Over at SRP, there are severa...
