    If tallow is so great .

    Thread Starter: Cksnffr

    Almost all of my favorite artisan soaps use tallow. I find most non-tallow artisan soaps disappointing, at least in terms of actual shave performance. So why are almost all the elite-tier factory soaps made without tallow? To wit: ABC XPEC Saponifico Varesino SMN I Coloniali PC Nuavia

    Regent or Aristocrat?

    Thread Starter: Mitaccio

    At an antique store just outside Zion's National Park today I found this razor. Case is a Regent. The razor appears to be a mismatched '41 Aristocrat, but I'd like some help being sure. The razor does not have end caps and the bar doesn't have the notch, so I know it's pre-WWII. But inside of...

    The Best Way To Use Williams!

    Thread Starter: riverstyxxx

So here's what I did: Grind it up with a cheese grater, smoosh it into a bowl best as possible, then add...

    Maggard OC v2 Arrived

    Thread Starter: tommet

    And I'm very happy with it. Just finished shaving with the Leather and Tobacco soap and aftershave. Only did a two pass, but it shaved very well. The open comb is definitely a different feeling than closed. I'm not thinking it shaves any better for me and my beard, but it is different. Fit...

    Rank the True Reasons Why You are into Wet Shaving (Be Honest)

    Thread Starter: Chango

    I know that the “it’s cheaper than cartridge shaving” issue is always thrown out there as a reason to switch to wet shaving. But honestly, so far I spend more on DE shaving than on cartridge shaving BY FAR—brushes, razors, blades, soaps, aftershaves… I already have enough shaving soaps in my...

    Organic/All Natural Creams

    Thread Starter: legit

    I have been using Proraso green and more recently Proraso Blue ever since I started shaving with a brush.
