Holy COW is this Knize Ten strong. Good thing I had warning from Rik, or else the fire alarms at work might have gone off. Judiciously applied, though, this stuff is really nice. I think it might hibernate until winter, though.

Thanks! I was beginning to think it would never bloom! It seems to me that the Simpson's take longer to bloom than my other brushes, probably because of the density of knot.

The feather is noticably different that the Euro Gillette and Derby's I have been using for the past month or so. It also performed differently...noticably sharper, more aggressive, and more smooth. That said, I proceeded with extreme caution and received the best shave of my neck with the least irritation in my month or so history of DE shaving.:thumbup: :shaving:

Holy COW is this Knize Ten strong. Good thing I had warning from Rik, or else the fire alarms at work might have gone off. Judiciously applied, though, this stuff is really nice. I think it might hibernate until winter, though.
I stopped wearing Knize about 3 weeks ago. It's starting to get just too warm for it.

Mine originally came in a splash top, and about two months ago I decanted it into one of Charles' atomizers. It's almost toooo strong in atmoized form. I feel it really changes its character. I'm almost tempted to pour it back into the original bottle. :tongue_sm

Knize Ten is the only cologne that I can't spray directly on me but I love the stuff. Weather's been in the 50s and low 60s so I'm enjoying it while I can.

Excellent shave! Nice to bring the SMF I out of retirement, even if it did use more cream and was trickier to hydrate while lathering than the ol' trusty Vulfix #2234. I may soon be in the market for something a little less "floppy" in a similar size, though! Curse you, SBAD! :a7:

Oh, and love love love that QED "101." Charles is, quite simply, an artist.

The Tom's absolutely created the most lather I've ever seen...probably enough for a weeks worth of shaving. The lather was also amazingly slick and left a very cool sensation to the visage. That said, the scent wasn't as strong as I was hoping and expected. It reminded me of wedding mints, kind of a dry or chalky mint scent. Still, I liked it and am extremely happy that I picked this stuff up.

Dennis

Stopped by the local granola store and picked up some Tom's of Maine Refreshing Mint and some Thayer Rose witch hazel toner. The store (Foods for Living) had a pretty complete line of stuff from Kiss My Face to Welda, Dr. Bronners and all the others. I should have taken pics. Anyway...

The Tom's had a pleasant scent, but I could not get the toothpaste vision out of my head - smells like toothpaste, looks like toothpaste, comes in a toothpaste tube. Yes, I picked up the shave cream. :biggrin: The lather was so so - a lot like Proraso in the green tube. The shave was outstanding though and it cuts close. Followed with the Thayer Rose and thought about old ladies and then with the Feather ASB. Great shave today, very smooth.

Scotto, I went for Coates Lime today, too.

Merkur HD/Merkur blade (day 3)
Vulfix #2234
Coates Lime shaving cream
Ghetto Da Vinci water (Thayer's rose + lavender witch hazels)

Not the most comfortable shave--might have been the three-day-old blade, might have been unfamiliarity with the Coates, but while it's a good-looking, close shave, I'm still tender hours later.

Rich, what did you think of the Coates Lime scent? I couldn't tell if I got an older tub, or that is what it is supposed to smell like. Had a musty kind of scent to go with the lime EO

Justin - two spritzes of Knize? Oy!:crying: :07:

Scotto-

yeah tell me about it..i feel like I'm walking around in this fog today..it smells great, but holy shnit, it's like I took a bath. That crap should come with a warning label! I feel like Pigpen from Peanuts except my fog is Knize Ten :117:

The Rooney finest was TERRIBLE with this shaving soap... so bad - that I'll try it once more with DR Harris, and if it performs as teribly as it did with the trumpers, I'll relegate it strictly to shaving creams. I miss using my PJ2.

Yeah, there was a sort of "darkness" to the scent, but not as strong as some gents mention, and not unpleasant. Not a mustiness, but perhaps an earthiness, and I don't remember it being there when I first opened the tub. I'm wondering if the cream is susceptible to oxidation.

I think I'm done with my Personna experiment. . .
--the pluses: cheap, local. . .did I mention cheap?!?
--the minuses: the pain!!!

I don't know what it is about these blades--they seem to go from incredibly sharp to ragged and dangerous in about 2 seconds. If I do use them again, it will be for 1-2 days tops, then into the trash.

In preparation for a week's worth of road shaves (actually just 5), I decided that a little variety was in order.

Ok ! this last sentence you explaining it all , just safed you from me calling up the Shave Doctor. I was thinking man !!!!! shaving is nice but when travelling bringing 3% of your inventory that is a bit over the top.. right here right there you can see more diversity in shaving creams then some men will ever buy in their lives.... sometimes it is sad.... The Elite is enlighted the Mass is Fooled :lol:

Had 2 great shaves back to back, yesterday with the Taylor's Avocado and today with the C&E Almond. Both creams provide tons of moisture and a slick ride for the blade.

To celebrate, dearest wife and I took our 12 year old to the zoo and had ourselves an Ostrich Egg breakfast.

I kept my eyes peeled for the badger exhibit, but alas, there were none!

Thanks! Jerry's tutorial got the creative juices flowing. I see what you mean about the PJ2. I'm guessing yours is similar to drP's (http://badgerandblade.com/vb/showthread.php?t=2498&highlight=simpsons)? It's a shame they changed it's shape - I like the more curvaceous version better. I'll have to be on the lookout for one. :biggrin:

John,

I have no pride of authorship on anything I write. And any COLOR added to the site makes the board that much more visually pleasing!

Give the Haiku's a try as well. We have lost momentum on them. :thumbup1:
