    Thank Neptune Labor Day is over.

    Thread Starter: brians_myth

    The holiday seasons always bring me a smile or two. Extra days off while getting paid? I think so! But sadly I don't enjoy the days off the way I used to. Sure, the BBQs are tasty and the company is nice but I can't shave! If I so much as reach for my razor, my girlfriend is there to stop me. She...

    Question about Knot Diameter VS Loft

    Thread Starter: Foyle

    I posted a question about this in the restoration forum, but didn't get much response. I'm looking for a little more insight into the issue of setting brush loft. I got one response on that question and was advised that 48-52mm would be good. I'm about to re-knot a vintage Klenzo with a TGN 20mm...

    Shave like grandpa

    Thread Starter: AZBronco

    I've been thinking about how many of us like to think we shave like grandpa. But I think there's a big difference between us and grandpa--RAD, SAD, SCADD, etc., while grandpa likely had one razor, one soap or cream, one brush, and one aftershave. In the spirit of gentlemanly restraint, I'm...

    Barbasol smells like American Blend

    Thread Starter: Bloozepicker

    I detect no difference in these. The Barbersoul I received today is a duplicate of American Blend. Am I just remembering the smell of Barbasol incorrectly? I do not remember is smelling like this.

    First Safety Razor Purchase?

    Thread Starter: merikus

    Hello all, I'm new to wet shaving. I've spent my life using electric razors and recently decided to make the switch. I decided to start with a shavette-style blade, and have been having some trouble with it. Mostly I've been having issues with having sufficient time to dedicate to the straight...

    Edwin Jagger; My experience

    Thread Starter: OnlookeR7557

    I wanted to make this a separate thread so people would see it as opposed to a reply. I currently own 20 soaps and creams. Several of my soaps are hard tripled milled soaps including Mitchell’s Wool Fat and DR Harris which many people have problems creating a good lather. I have always had great...
