    Need AS and/or soap ideas for Christmas.

    So far seeing a lot of love for b&m seville and fine accouterments L’orange. Few votes for chop shop, stirling, and speick as well. All good things to look into! Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Need AS and/or soap ideas for Christmas.

    My family is looking for stocking/ small gift ideas for me. I would like to expand my collection of aftershaves (and soap as well if there are some must haves). I have and use the following regularly: Cold River Soap Works: - Jardin D'Orange. I like this scent. Woodsy/ earthy with a hint of...

    New to the NIB, new to fountains, and need help!

    Are there generally some inks that work better than others in general? As in are there some that are just notorious for not flowing well, stopping up pens etc?

    New to the NIB, new to fountains, and need help!

    Hey all. This is my first time posting in the NIB. Found this forum getting started with wet shaving. For whatever reason or another, I decided to get myself a fountain pen. I did a little reading and found myself a Pelikan m215 off ebay. Should be here in a week or two. I bought the Pelikan...

    WTT CRSW Bergamot & Bay v2

    I've got a tin of this soap that I've used maybe a dozen times. 90% or more left (retail $17 + shipping). I LOVE the smell of this soap, I just can't seem to get the lather dialed in. Everyone here seems to swear by this stuff, so maybe I'll try it out again someday. For now, I would like to try...

    No matter how many soaps I try.

    This is how I am with Haslinger.. For me, Tabac doesn't work quite as well. Scent is fine, just not the cushion I'm looking for.

    B&M Seville: I'm worried

    Any special way I can tell if my soap is the glissant base? Any ingredient I am supposed to look for? I'm at work so excuse my ignorance if its stupidly visible on the package. I bought some of their bay rum a month or two ago and like it a lot, just wish it had a tad more cushion to it.

    Second razor recommendation . Merkur 37/39C or Muhle R41?

    The ruler of the sink spaces already looks at my razor stuff as encroaching on her 4/5ths of the counter. I don't think my part of a section can hold two more razors. :blink:

    Second razor recommendation . Merkur 37/39C or Muhle R41?

    I currently shave with the Merkur barber pole 38C.. Looking to get a second razor that might be a little more aggressive/ efficient. I only do a 2 pass shave, and was wondering if these might make it just a little smoother at the end. What would you all recommend? It will be my second razor, and...

    Bolt Action .223

    Would actually suggest looking at a Weatherby Vanguard. I have one in .243 and I love it. Howa also makes a very affordable rifle (their 1500 I think it is) that has a two stage trigger and good accuracy out of the box.

    Best Quality versus Cost 1911?

    The TLE has everything you need in a defense 1911 and nothing you don't. Front strap checkering on the frame for a good grip, night sights, and steel frame. Probably the best value Kimber out there.

    Best Quality versus Cost 1911?

    I would look at Dan Wesson, Colt, or a decent Kimber. Depends on what you are looking to use it for primarily. If you are looking to carry it, I would highly recommend the DW CCO model, or a Kimber TLE or Eclipse. Several Kimbers in my family, and all of them go bang nicely. 1911's can get a bad...

    Kai vs Feather blades. What is better?

    I ended up picking up 50 for $20 plus shipping. My face has been quite happy with me the past week. Think I may have found my blade and don't need to experiment anymore.
