    Slick, dense, lather inprovement

    Thread Starter: deoxy4

    After trying many soaps and creams, I have been using Haslinger Schafmilch soap and Biotique Bio Palmyra cream pretty exclusively for a month or so.

    Riff Raff

    Brown Leaf Generosity

    Thread Starter: Riff Raff

    Late last year, a fellow Brown Leafer Pete (PGrevie) found 6 pipes and an almost full tin of Heine's Blend that was dated 1954. These belonged to his grandfather and needed some advice. I, and others offered advice and the whole thing can be found here. Once Pete got his smoking technique dialed...

    Ahoy hoy from England!

    Thread Starter: Samon

    Yo, newb to the forum here! Been traditionally shaving with Cut Throat razors for some time now with great pleasure and showing up to say hi and learn about double edge safety razors and the odd bit about cut throats I'm sure there is left to absorb. :) Samon

    Proraso Green

    Thread Starter: mmaggi

    A family member got back from Italy this past Saturday and they had some shave supplies for me. I requested and was given a tub of Proraso Green soap. Also part of the request was Proraso White cream, Proraso AS Lotion and the boar brush (Omega 10048). The total was less than $20. Proraso Green...

    My Guess... 3017

    Thread Starter: johnniegold

    Over the course of the last year I have been concentrating on using and finishing product. I have been going through aftershaves, colognes and shaving creams and sold off most of the excess. But the soaps... well, I just like them all and don't want to unload them. Over the last several months I...

    I can understand how quickly this hobb can become addictive. I am three weeks in and adapting as I learn. I purchased a EJ DE89L and then after discussing it with my brother, received my father's Gilette Super Speed Red Tip. I have gone from Proraso green to Body Shop Macca root soap and...

    Personna Plant in Verona. Virginia to remain open

    Thread Starter: OldZephyr

    I use the US made Personna "blue" blades, and a while ago there was a thread about the parent company's intent to spin off the razor blade line and maybe close the plant. According to this news article, an outfit called AccuTec Blades has bought the plant and the business, so it looks like the...
