    Found a soap I don't get along with

    I try to be helpful and responsive. Feedback is the most valuable tool a producer/supplier can obtain from these interactions. Thank you sir!

    What a bummer! Im sorry to hear you are having that issue. As far as the base goes, The Lime and the Amber are identical. The one difference being the scents (obviously). As was stated earlier, citrus can have that effect unfortunately.

    Straight Razor market dying out?

    The reasons behind the hit/miss quality control on the BQ razors stem from several factors. One of the main reasons being that they have tried to keep up with demand. Rushing to produce straights in an effort to fulfill a demand led to less than ideal razors leaving the factory. The apprentice...

    What is this brush from a 2014 posting on here? It is claimed to be a Merkur but I cannot find anywhere that Merkur makes this brush

    I dont have carry of the forks that facilitate more than just one brush and one razor. Im sure there are forks out there that will hold two of each. You might see if you can find just the fork and then swap them out with your current setup. It would save you a few bucks!

    That listing is a total mess. That is without a doubt my #190 set with the soaps swapped out. The bowl (if anyone is wondering, is a #917).

    That is a Col. Conk set #190. That is a Merkur #180/23C razor, #775 stand, #247 Brush. The stand and brush were designed by us YEARS ago. It was produced solely for us until the popularity of the stand took off. It was then copied and re-copied and sold to everyone under the sun. Not sure...
