Bump. Just a reminder that I'm still looking for Somersets, and I'm likely to pay your asking price. Thanks.

Just as an addendum: I performed a rather stupid experiment, which is how I ended up with a handle to reknot. I had bought a two-band brush whose outer band really was not white at all, instead a sort of muddy beige. Since I hadn't paid much for it, and because I'd read of people's questions about b...

Removing bristles

Brush reknotting experts, please see my post in the SMF university section. I want to remove old bristles to replace them, but don't have power tools. Suggestions? Thanks. Sorry if my dual posting isn't good etiquette.

Removing old bristles

I have a brush handle from which I want to remove the old bristles, so that I can replace them with a new silvertip or super knot. However, I'm not really a handyman and don't have a dremel or even a power drill. I had read that one shaver here had used channel lock pliers to yank out old bristles, ...

Some of us have made a LOT of impulse buys. I collected Super Speeds, in all the various major models, in all the different colored cases, many mint, a few NOS. But it finally struck me one day that I was never going to actually use any of them - I've found that they don't feel that good to me for s...

Welcome! I did some training at the medical center in Houston, and I learned that with the humid air there, you never need a pre-shave oil....Hope you enjoy your visits here.

Discounts

I would like to give business to the vendors who list on this site, but I'm not always able to pay full retail price. Is there a list somewhere here of SMF coupon codes for getting discounts from vendors? Thanks.

I just shaved with my new (used) Pils for the first time this morning, and while I really liked the closeness of the shave (even with a couple nicks) with a Personna blade, I could feel the slipperiness of the wet handle, which made me uneasy. I too wish they knurled the handles like the Ikon. Maybe...
