    Nothing more, ..... than simply, I am a lucky man !

    Good Evening Gents ..... It was a nice quiet Sunday for my wife and me (and our dog Yogi) today, and I've had some time to reflect on the simple blessings in my life. I have so much to be thankful for, and my involvement with our Badger & Blade community of fine gentlemen is definitely one of...

    Back to the Beginning

    Good for you ! I'm glad you found your final razor happiness. Enjoy ! My first razor was also the Merkur 34C, but that is now stored away in my dopp bag for travel. For me, now at home, it's a six razor rotation, which gives me great pleasure. Timeless Bronze, Rockwell 6C, RazoRock Lupo .72...

    What Aftershave did you use today?

    Clubman Pinaud, followed about 15 minutes later with Proraso Blue balm and a few drops of Hyaluronic Acid. Pretty darn perfect !

    Progreso Red Pre-shave consistency

    I completely agree. The Red pre-shave is definitely thinner, while the Green is thicker and more luxurious.

    The Bristle Count

    Thirteen brushes (6 synthetics, one Mistura, and 6 badgers) .... and none of them shed any bristles. Both face lathering and bowl/scuttle lathering. I guess I'm lucky not to have any shedding issues.

    Do any of you keep an off line shave journal?

    I keep a simple journal on my iMac computer .... an easy "Pages" document which I update with every shave. Here's my current page, and for me, keeping this journal is a very enjoyable part of our wonderful hobby.

    Thoughts on the Alexander Simpson Trafalgar T3

    Congratulations. I’m sure that you’re going to enjoy your new T3 as much as I’m enjoying my T2. I have several other “bigger brushes,” so the size of the T2 allows it to fit in perfectly as a member of my regular brush rotation.

    SOC Mistura Cherrywood, whipping up a wonderful lush scuttle lather with Cella BioCream, smoothly shaved to a three pass BBS result with my RazoRock Lupo .72 and a Gillette Nacet (3), and finished off with Proraso Red splash, Proraso Blue balm, and a few drops of Hyaluronic Acid. Only my second...

    SOCTOBER 2021

    There's a lot of love among our B & B community members for the Semogue SOC Mistura brush. After reading loads of positive and uplifting comments on several different threads, I decided it was time to add another brush to my collection. Do I "need" another brush ? ..... of course not. Do I...

    Add me to the list of SOC Mistura owners !

    Okay, so I know that with a new brush, you're supposed to soak it, condition it, baby it, and break it in ..... ..... all before the first shave. But, feeling like a little kid again with a new toy, I just couldn't wait. So, about a dozen swirls in my tub of Mike's Lavender, and then a...
