island Question / 4 only

Post by fallingwickets » Wed May 10, 2017 4:39 am

If you were being sent to an island and were only allowed to take 4 shaving products with you, what would they be?

Here are mine:
Simpson tulip 3
trumpers rose
personna hospital blades
muhle r89

Semogue 1305 boar brush
Valobra hard soap (Valobra Shave Stick, Valobra unscented in a cake, old AoS)
Mergress razor
Personna Hospital Use/Med Prep blades

I might note that there are many other blades that I really like, as well: Tiz (Iranian brand), PermaSharp Super, Super Iridium, Treet Dura Sharp, and others.

Since I simplified my lathering technique from lathering in a bowl to lathering on top of the cake of soap, I have found that the lowly Semogue 1305 boar brush works better for me than any badger, synthetic, or other boar brush (with the possible exception of the Semogue 830, made with the same grade of boar bristle).

That's a good reminder. I have a beard that I trim/shape constantly, so I would need to remember the scissors, as well.
