Re: Review - AP Shave Co Brushes

Thanks for the review, Bill.

I have several synthetic shave brushes and I'm always interested to hear what else is out there, though I buy much less new shave equipment these days than I once did.

Re: Feather DER-A Adjustable Razor

I didn't realize that Connaught wouldn't be able to ship it to the USA. I haven't looked into how else to get it. I'd check eBay or Amazon first, or other shaving forums. It seems to me that I experienced this before with other Feather products (cartridge razors) from Connaught. It would appear tha...

Re: Feather DER-A Adjustable Razor

Interesting, Paul. I wonder if this is an update/replacement of their existing TTO razor (a relatively inexpensive razor to get one started in DE shaving).

Re: Occam's Razor

That's the one, Paul, and I did get it from ebarbershop.com, some 12 years ago.

I thought they offered an adjustable one, also, but that could just be faulty memory.

Re: Occam's Razor

The Schick Type N is supposed to be milder than the L, so it's also worth a try. Yes, I think it's probably time to do just that, Paul. I also have a Type O clone that I got around the time I joined this forum. I never actually tried it out, either, though I believe I read from others, years ago, t...

Re: Occam's Razor

Paul, I'm amazed that Schick has blades (Proline) made in Japan! Are they the same format as Injector blades, without the injection dispenser? Are they especially good blades? I have a couple of Schick M Adjustable razors, and they work all right when set low. I have a very mild Gillette Injector wh...

Re: Occam's Razor

I just ordered a Supply Injector from the link that slackskin provided. (My thanks to slackskin!) I have a pretty good supply of Injector blades, but none of the Schick Injector razors worked that well for me, even though my first five years of shaving were with a Type L Injector. If I have a really...

Re: Allergic reaction from Tweex soap?

Like Gary, I'm not familiar with the Tweex shave stick, but you could be allergic to, or have a sensitivity to, any of the ingredients.
