    Cal's "I don't do journals" Journal

    Amazing, Cal. Reminds me a lot of your Shavemac handles. Wonder if you will be getting a 30 mm brush? Now we're talking really big. I like the 30 mm brushes I have but mostly wouldn't mind if they were 28 mm or 26 mm. Happy shaves, Jim

    The Journal of a Backwards Professor

    The posts I've read tonight have been extraordinary including yours. Very interesting stuff, which would probably be better if I had a Flare Tip. I know very little about them. I had not thought at all about how the Mk1 fits into the mix, but I should have. Like you, I like it better than the...

    Damn Comfortable Shave

    Very cool story, Doug. An adventure and a mystery.

    Semogue SOC Mistura | Your Impressions & Mine

    Thanks. Super helpful and encouraging. My 70/30 has - counting actual shaves and out of rotation break in "shaves" - way more than fifty. Perhaps seventy five. I will persist, albeit with skepticism, but encouraged by your experience, as well as by my impression that the knot has a most...

    Semogue SOC Mistura | Your Impressions & Mine

    style="width: 100%" |- | style="width: 50.0000%" | | style="width: 50.0000%" | I'd say the Mistura is a lot better than the SOC boar, but that's just my opinion. My Mistura knot looks larger now than it does in the photo. Not sure why. No problem to not have a mixed brush of course...

    Big Nurse said to remind you not to talk about this.

    Damn Comfortable Shave

    Me, too, Doug. Damn Comfortable Shave or nothing. However, the Polsilver/Wizamet SI blades, for me, remain comfortable for beyond 20 shaves. Plus, the beyond 20 shaves are still good. However, recently I'm testing an idea: Perhaps the shaves earlier in the life of the blade are actually better...

    Cal's "I don't do journals" Journal

    We're not using the same soaps but are having the same thoughts.

    Damn Comfortable Shave

    I use them for more than 20 shaves. Both Polsilver SI and Wizamet SI. Mostly I change one out knowing it could absolutely go longer. However, that might be too long a time. Or, asking Cal, way too short.

    Damn Comfortable Shave

    Absolutely, Mike. I could just use an iKon Tech!

    Damn Comfortable Shave

    Actually, the sandalwood's a very nice scent. Not all that strong smelling, but fairly persistent, and quite pleasant. I'm not badmouthing it at all, but, for me, Atomic Age Bay Rum is the bee's knees. I've long been a bay rum fan and have tried a number of them, liking all of 'em, but I like...
