    Morris & Forndran Blonde Badger

    I know patience is hard, it is the same for me when I order things from the US so I do sympathise. All I will add is that it really is worth the wait.

    Morris & Forndran Blonde Badger

    The Duke 3 in 2B was a custom made one purchased direct from Simpsons. I heard of someone asking for one after I had bought mine and they said no. I am not sure if it is something they will only do when/if their production facility is not in full tilt doing orders, or if they have closed the...

    Morris & Forndran Blonde Badger

    In this one the Simpsons Duke 3 2b is well used and has bloomed as much as I think it ever will. The M&F brush is new and unused. Always good to see a brush next to another for comparison. Added overhead shots, again Duke on the left and M&F on right When tied the Duke is slightly...

    Morris & Forndran Blonde Badger

    I seen this seller, using the same description of "Blonde hair" and wording, I don't know if this is allowed, it is not a link to an auction, just the seller account who is selling brushes using the same description as Lee but I don't think Lee has copyright on it, just it can be confusing if...

    ASB/Splash for spring and summer

    In the summer it is Proraso or Aqua Velva every time, I think the Proraso's skin care slightly edges it for me but I love the AV smell.

    Morris & Forndran Blonde Badger

    I have been using a M&F for the last few weeks now. It was easier for me to get one living in the UK; Lee was able to get it to me real quick and I got a soap from him as well. With each use it keeps getting better, it seemed to break in very quickly compared to my Simpsons Duke 3 in 2B...

    British Gillette experts, is this #58?

    There were two #58; I have one of each. One is a Aluminum version that is quite light (weight on Mr Razors site) and the other was a heavier one. You will know which one it is straight away as soon as you pick it up. It looks like the heavier version because try as I may I cannot get the...

    Muhle R41 Old Version (2008)

    The new R41 gives a lovely smooth shave, it is something you can use every day and enjoy. It is tolerant of most blades and I have heard no complaints about it's shave, some feel it a tad too light but overall it is a 9/10. The older one is heavier, the solid lined handle gives far superior...

    Display Case Picture Update

    Stunning case Lucky, that is quite a collection you have assembled. I like the little details like the Gillette trucks and that you have the right blades for each case. The way you have grouped them makes sense and there is some time line going across the shelves. All of this took a lot of...

    Rooney 3/1 Question

    I totally empathise with you, more money doe not always mean better. I think they are all great brushes. My Finest did soften at the tips after some use, they do take some time to fully break in.

    Rooney 3/1 Question

    Sorry I thought it went Pure Best Silvertip Super Heritage 2B then 3B Finest It is quite mystical with Rooneys in terms of hair grades and I still don't filly understand it. The Best I have is the only one made without the Rooney brand, I have the rest in Rooney handles and of them...

    Rooney 3/1 Question

    I have a Rooney 1/2 of in every grade, including the three band heritage and ones made for other vendors with different grades. . The Super is good the pure is better and the finest, although a lot more money the Finest range is really really good. This seems to have the density and backbone I...

    Feather All-Stainless DE

    You are correct, they do not match but none the less I don't think they look odd together either,
