Re: In Praise of the Ordinary Razor

Regarding the DE razors, right before the General happened to come along, I was pretty much satisfied that my best shaves ever were coming from a late-to-mid 1970s short handle Gillette black beauty adjustable. If the General had not come onto the scene, I was going to be happy using the Gillette ev...

Re: Shaving soap or cream of the day

My first shave using the Cyril Salter's French Vetiver shaving cream. All of the positive things that have been posted about Salter's is accurate. It's a very fine shaving cream.

Cannibidiol CBD - what's up with this stuff?

Not hallucinogenic, and it seems to be all over the place. Made from hemp. Not illegal in most jurisdictions. I'd like to read some educated opinions of this fad. Some folks (internet marketers) claim the results are miraculous. Yeah, right.

Re: Average number of Shaves on Artist Club Blades?

Tim yesterday's Feather Pro was at shave # 25. Someone sent me a couple of the Kai Original Captain blades and today's first shave was smooth and sharp. No irritation. As a result I may buy myself some. Up to now I've been using Kai Captain Mild, and they were just a teeny-tiny bit more mild than th...

Re: Shaving soap or cream of the day

Following the passage of the XPEC yesterday, I moved on to the predecessor to XPEC --- Domenico Caraceni 1013 shaving cream, Italian made, of course. Great stuff.

Today the XPEC finally ran out. It lasted through 101 excellent lathers. Before today, the record was 100 for the MdC Fougere soap.
