Re: Make the world go away - get it off my shoulders!

I have simply taken the approach that once I have used it up, I don't replace it except for MWF and DR Harris Lavender. I still have 8 or 9 soaps and creams. And yes, I am back -- ish. Don't anyone fall off their chair reading this. :D Wendell, have you found an opportunity to use the most recently...

Re: Shaving Brush Recommendation

Badger: Kent BK8 Boar: Semogue 1305 or 620 While I have a few others, these tend to be my go-to brushes. The 620 replaced my beloved 1305 which had a core knot breakdown and fell apart one day while using it..... took me a couple of years to finally replace it. Good to see you back Wendell. Ditto! :D

Yes sir! I couldn't agree more. Easy to use for shaving and good for the skin.

Re: Noxzema - it's been too long, my friend

Did it again this morning with very satisfying results. Noxzema Face Cream and shave number 3 on the Schick Slim II cartridge. Close and smooth.

Re: English Fern tallow soap by Penhaligon's

Clive, they ruined both the English Fern and the Blenheim Bouquet shaving soaps when they reformulated them a few years ago maybe 10. After that, nobody was buying it because it was just lousy so the company brilliantly canceled it, had a couple of other brand soaps still unable to make lather, and ...

Re: English Fern tallow soap by Penhaligon's

A year later, thankfully the EF is still in my rotation. This morning's lather was perfect. After 66 shaves on the puck, it looks about half used. This is as good as it gets. Maybe someone at Pen's will have enough sense to recognize that several soap manufacturers have adopted the same new formulat...

Re: Make the world go away - get it off my shoulders!

It appears that I'm just going to ignore the stuff in the box and pretend they don't exist. Meanwhile, I finished off one of the soaps I was keeping, so I reached for the box and found a half-used puck of English Fern tallow soap as a replacement in the top 20. Needless to say I think I was crazy to...

Re: A new adjustable injector razor - from Parker

Tim, I just checked Amazon and the Schick injector blades on the website are made in China. They are decent blades to be sure, relatively sharp and smooth, and I can normally get about five shaves out of them. They are better than the German made ones, which are rubbish, a bit better than the ASR/P...

Re: Vídeo : How to clean a shaving brush

Yes, another good one. You make it look easy to create a good video.

Question, is there a reason to think one would not use this method to clean a synthetic knot, or is it an unintentional omission?

Schick Slim Twin revisited - Great result

Yesterday's razor and blade was an impulse choice. Schick Slim Twin - STII . We've discussed these and their related brands several times over the past few years. I was - still am - amazed at how well it turned out. The resulting shave (2 day's whisker growth) was fast, smooth, and very close with n...

Re: Bad news - suddenly a shedder

If it wasn't for the fact that the shedding had stopped, what I would have done especially because I I did admire the shape and feel of the handle of the 2000, I would have taken a big pair of scissors and cut off the shedding brush head and replaced it with something different. Maybe something alon...

Re: A new adjustable injector razor - from Parker

I'm looking forward for Murray's experiences with this razor. In the past I couldn't figure out how to get a really smooth shave with anyone's injector and blades.
