    Haircut & Shave Co. SS N075

    Just ordered it. Been waiting for a few months. I had culled my razors down to only 1 which was the RR GC with two baseplates (.84 and .68). After reading a number of reviews and thoughts, especially from @MTG Jr ,hopefully it will fit the bill between the GC .84 and .68, and be a smooth daily...

    Your current TOP 5 DE's?

    I’m curious about where you rank the H&S N75. Wasn’t that just recently your top razor or one one of them based on your rave review?

    FS Shavemac 2-Band Silvertip - Fan / 26mm / 52mm Loft / Brown/Black & Haslinger Soaps

    Shavemac 2-Band Silvertip - Fan / 26mm / 52mm Loft / Brown & Black - $150.00 including shipping. Essentially brand new. Maybe 7-8 shaves to break it in and to confirm whether I wanted to keep it or not. Great brush but I think i'm just so used to synthetics that it's not my cup of tea. Been...

    Saponificio Varesino soaps

    Thanks. Interesting. Now I’m going to have to order more. Haha. I had read elsewhere that some believed 4.3 to be slicker, etc. and thus, considered them “better” overall. I’ll have to do my own comparison. I have Felce and Opuntia en route to add to Colonia. Might have to pause a bit though...

    Saponificio Varesino soaps

    Anyone know why SV hasn’t yet converted all of its scents to the 4.3 base? Thanks.

    Astra SP quality issues?

    The Mods will likely take care of it for you eventually.

    Astra SP quality issues?

    This should be moved to the blade forum.

    Saponificio Varesino soaps

    Must admit that SV might be my “go-to” moving forward, for the most part. My Colonia 4.3 lathers like a champ, is slick as snot, and best of all, it’s a triple milled soap that will last for ages. It’s hard to overload and eat through a puck like it is with many of the artisan soap makers out...

    Shavemac 2-Band Silvertip Question

    Thanks everyone for the replies. I guess, when compared to other "badger" brushes, many may construe it as being "soft", especially when compared to other "badger" brushes, and for those that are primarily used to using badgers. However, I personally wouldn't call it "soft" from an objective...

    Shavemac 2-Band Silvertip Question

    Yessir. Soaked it for quite some time. I'm sure it will break in...hopefully;)

    Shavemac 2-Band Silvertip Question

    Thanks! The Shavemac website badger hair descriptions page was what I utilized to decide upon my brush choice. The 2 band was touted as being the softest (rated 9) next the the standard Silvertip (10). I've been reading reviews for months, where everyone touts the "softness" of the knots tips...

    Shavemac 2-Band Silvertip Question

    Hopefully one of the brush gurus will respond! Ha. I have 2 Big Bruce’s. Amazing brush. I may be headed back to synthetics if the supposed “Silvertip” is actually supposed to feel this scritchy ;) We shall see.
