I don't much care for small cobs, and pipe tobacco selection isn't usually good, especially since I don't smoke aros. I'll do all my pipe smoking at home, and since I don't want to invest in a...
I've got myself a list!
I have such a craving for a cigar right now :c2:
Nope, no flavored tobacco.
Hey gents. I was traveling recently, and to pass the time one evening I settled in to a cigar lounge to smoke a cigar. I'm a pipe smoker, and the little experience I've had with cigars tells me I...
I found the consistency exactly like some other balms I have in tubes, thicker than balms that come in bottles. It felt healing after a 3 pass shave, not greasy, smelled nice.
I think like my...
Rattray's 7 from alpster, in a Karl Erik
Don't know what happend to the imgur pics.
So...much...win. Here is B&B in a nutshell. :thumbup:
Can you guys take your snark to PM or something? This is not cool.
I'm 35. Closer to 7 years by my calculation, but it's still not nearly enough.
George Wostenholm 7/8 with horn scales, mother of pearl inlay. Henry T. Lummus collection #1053. Restored by Carter Monroe.
This razor is all original except the pins and washers. I'm pretty...
Wow, nice score. Maybe the Haberdashery is a better spot for this thread.
What's that? You want an update? Ok, here is the current stockpile.
In my Chubbys, I found Best and 3 band super to have roughly the same backbone. 2 band a little more backbone. But they are all so densely packed, you will not have any issues with floppiness any way...
For me, best is too scratchy. Three brushes I've tried. All my Simpson's are Super, 3 or 2 band. Tip softness is paramount for me, but most guys are fine with best.
You guys need to stop saying Aqua Velva in this thread. You're gonna jinx it. If it gets discontinued, the Shavepocalypse is upon us. That would truly be a loss.
pm sent. Woo hoo!
Good thing these guys are here to help you with your problem! Now you're on the road to recovery for sure
Do any of you guys know much about individualized mugs? I think I understood from the catalogs I've seen that barbers had cabinets with slots for mugs, and each customer had their own?
Jim Beam Single Barrel. It's a decent bourbon, very much worth the $17 sale price I bought it for. I might have to stock up a couple bottles.
This is exactly why I'm trying again. Every soap out there, good and bad, will have all kinds of reviews. But I know people who actually know what they're talking about say such good things about...
Alpster is about as generous a fellow as I've ever known. It was probably him.
More water just gave me bigger bubbles. So I don't know what I need.
I can do that no problem, but I'm afraid that's not the lather I want. The lather I like is more of a cream than a foam. It can't sit on top of a brush like that, because it's wait would make it fall...
I don't think my water is that hard, but I have tried it with distilled water before. Although if I had to do that every time, I would trash it anyway. As to brushes...all my brushes are dense....
I can't believe I suckered myself into trying MWF again. After days of soaking the puck, so that it swelled almost completely filling the bowl, I gave it a shot.
As always, it lathers like crazy....
Hey, Jerry, is the cost mostly associated with the size of the blade? I'm noticing that basically all 6/8 are about the same, all 7/8 the same.
You know we like our ridiculously big blades around...
The smooth briar is amazing. :thumbup1:
This was my biggest problem when I first tried. Most brushes I tried were not soft enough. But once I figured out exactly what I needed -- super soft tips, lots of backbone -- I never looked back. No...
Looks like minty condition. Is that real badger hair, or is it dyed?
I love my badgers so much, I've always been afraid to try a high quality boar. I need to be able to rationalize the many hundreds I've spent on my brushes. :thumbup:
That was awesome! I can't figure out what "shaving paper" was.
Thank you. Welcome to B&B!
