    Blackland Razors Ti Blackbird

    Love the look, weight and cool factor of the razor, however I will be sending mine back to Blackland. I don't think of myself as a picky consumer (first time returning a shave product), but I just can't get past how sticky the razor feels on my face. I have tried 7 or 8 top shelf soaps and the...

    How much soap do you have?

    I don't have a list, but would guess in the 125 range, not including samples or cheap tubes or sticks. Way too many as I only use 10-15 on a regular basis. I bet 30-40 have never been opened. Half the fun is supporting small business whether I use the product or not. Some of my favorites...

    Whats the best Shaving bowl

    Not sure the best, but I have the ceramic and copper bowls from Captain’s Choice and they seem to work well. I prefer the copper for durability in case it gets dropped, but don’t leave soap sitting inside. I’ve noticed when a puck is left to dry, green oxidization forms. I do like the hand...

    Saponificio Varesino

    I have only tried one, but would recommend 70th Anniversary. Safe scent, not extreme and should appeal to a wide group of shavers. I assume all varieties provide a great shave. I have in excess of 125 soaps and I would place it in my top 5 even though I'm only in about 5 shaves.

    Arko August 2020

    Shave 10 in the books. Arko puck, 6C razor, Wilkinson Sword Saloon pack blade (3rd use), witch hazel and Aqua Velva. It's been a good experience using Arko every couple days and having no choice but to improve my shaving technique to get the best the soap has to offer. It will never be one of...

    Arko August 2020

    Shave 7 this morning. I mixed it up from the original puck and went with Cool Creme soap and ASB. Much prefer the smell!

    Arko August 2020

    I'm actually a Arko regular...once a month as a reminder to appreciate all the good soaps in the world:biggrin1: Kind of like my yearly trip to Walmart for a boost to my self esteem.

    Arko August 2020

    Shave four of the month with Arko this morning. Same boar brush with 6C razor and Nacet blade. Why is Arko August one of the longest months of the year🤭 I'm gonna stick it out, but won't miss it when the calendar flips to September. I only packed Arko for my 2 week business trip, but its...

    Arko August 2020

    Please add me to the Gung-ho list. I will be traveling for work the next 3 weeks, so that will make it easier not having 100 shave soaps giving me the evil eye. I might pack a few Arko varieties and after shave balms to go all in!
