    I am officially an Arkonaut

    Thread Starter: Trent in WA

    After reading so much lavish praise on this forum for Arko stick soap, I ordered one several weeks ago. It was love at first shave: it lathered like a dream, regardless of the brush I used and the quantity of water I threw at it, gave me a close-yet-cushy shave, and was cheap as chips. It quickly...

    Have you settled on what works and doesn't work for you?

    Thread Starter: danbuter

    Just curious how many people have found their go-to shaving stuff. It seems many people here are on a constant improvement quest. :biggrin1: For myself: I love face lathering. I get a much better result than from a bowl. Related to that, the right brush really helps. I just got a Maggard...

    Henri et Victoria

    Thread Starter: Snookledon

    I got a couple of Henri et Victoria soaps and used the French Pear for the first time today. I put a dab in my shaving scuttle and it lathered up like crazy. I could've used half the amount and still had enough for three good passes. The lather was incredibly rich and slick, and the resulting...
