Wow, I didn't know what NSFW meant but it's pretty apparent now.

The brushes look nice, too :whistle:

I've never tried a Tulip, but I had a Chubby 3 in 3-band that I ended up selling because it was just too dense (and huge). I couldn't get lather out of the thing.

My Rooney 2XL is just about perfect, IMHO. Size, density, softness--it's a great all-rounder. Some that like a little scritch think they are actually too soft. The M&F would be a great choice as well...very similar to Rooney in many ways, which is to be expected because Lee Sabini has deep Rooney ti...

That's what I do, too, Andy. I will add that I make my lather a bit less pasty than the stuff in that video, but it doesn't require swirling. I might make the occasional circular motion, but in general, I have come to prefer the feel and performance of paint brush strokes. I don't worry much about ...

Thäter 4440 4-C *Reduced*

Thäter 4440 - $110 reduced to $100 For sale is my beautiful Thäter 4440. I love this brush but with the holidays coming up, it must find a new home. I have always found the handle to be striking and very classy. As is standard with Thäters, the tips are extremely soft, but there is good backbone--t...

Will these handles fit the older Gillettes (specifically New and New Deluxe)? The handles fit the Tech heads like a glove but the New Heads do not fit as well. The threads are a match but the New heads have a smaller flange opening on the base plate and the iKon handle will not sit flush with that....

I've been able to secure my own vintage Le Grelot TI quarter hollow razor now. Today was the first shave with it. It's just as nice to shave with as they say. I'm very appreciative of it. I picked one of these up a while ago, and I agree--it's really a great shaver. Mine has some hone wear, but I t...
