    Your best performing soap

    Cella, followed by MWF for me. I do wish I had an Arko stick - with a few days' growth, that thing would crush. Plus, it's my sentimental favorite, since it was my first wet shaving purchase.

    The Simpson 46 Berkeley Thread

    It arrived on Tuesday and fortunately I had not yet shaved that day and rushed home to try it out. Perhaps it was overly adventurous to try it out on my newly purchased, first-ever puck of Mitchell's Wool Fat, but I was pretty happy with it. It definitely has more of a backbone than the Edwin...

    The Simpson 46 Berkeley Thread

    After almost seven years of the C&E/Edwin Jagger BBB, and a few extra dollars in my bank account, I decided to splurge and get a second brush. Berkeley 46B here I come! Some Musgo Real and my first puck of Mitchell's Wool Fat may have fallen into my WCS basket, too...

    Shaving Attire?

    I have only ever shaved while wearing my towel, post-shower. I couldn't do nude, it'd just feel... wrong?

    Cast Iron Pan

    I just got my first Lodge cast iron pan in the mail last week and made fantastic homemade crutons in it. Even though it's already pre-seasoned, should I season it again? Any suggestions?

    Tie help

    I can't claim to be an expert, but I've read somewhere that a very simple, conservative option is to just get a striped tie that matches the shirt. With a white shirt, probably most things would work. And I think too, with white and light blue shirts, you can get a little more creative with...

    Neck irritation: How did you cure it?

    I still get a fair amount of neck irritation, although it's nowhere near the levels when I shaved with a Mach3. I've sort of learned to live with it, and try to shave lightly on the adam's apple area. I think that shaving everyday, rather than every other day, helps.

    Arko shave stick

    I bought a bunch of Arko shave sticks when I lived in Istanbul, for almost nothing. I can see why the scent might not work for some people (my dad hates the stuff), but it gives a great shave and I don't mind the clean scent.

    Loving Crabtree & Evelyn!

    I'm a big fan of the C&E sandalwood soap. It smells great and although there may be better soaps out there, it does a fine job and I'm always left with a great shave.

    The Never-Ending Soap

    I have had a puck of C&E Sandalwood for the longest time now, and despite my using it exclusively for the past few months, it just refuses to disappear. I love using it, but I have a puck of CADE soap that I've been dying to use and want to use the C&E bowl. Anyone else have any soaps that just...

    Which Cream to try next?

    I would recommend trying the Proraso Shave Cream; it smells great and with the menthol, feels amazing: http://badgerandblade.com/vb/showthread.php?ltr=P&t=2306
