    Quality Boar Brush

    Hey All, I was wondering who makes quality boar brushes. Is it mainly Omega, or are there others? I have a couple nice Silvertips, but I'm actually interested in a nice boar brush. Thoughts? Recommendations?

    How many passes? Like one WTG, one XTG, and one ATG?

    Taylor Eton College is Dead to Me

    I just sent a question to Taylor's customer service... let's see if I get a reply by Monday.

    Taylor Eton College is Dead to Me

    Sounds like it! Also interesting that Roobaix said he'd received St. James in the blue jar a few years ago, as well. I totally prefer the blue jar to the cream one. It looks so much nicer and more professional to me, whereas the cream one looks kinda cheap compared to T&H jars.

    Taylor Eton College is Dead to Me

    To clarify, I did have more than just the sample... I bought a full tub (I wanna say I got it from ClassicShaving.com), and that tub smelled exactly like my sample. On a side note, I do also like St. James and Mr. Taylor. St. James has a nice, less-musky, modern scent, while still being...

    Taylor Eton College is Dead to Me

    I've seen others ask this same question, but I've never seen the question answered definitively. So, I'll go ahead and state it: Taylor's Eton College has changed - DEFINITELY CHANGED. The first tub of cream I ever purchased was Taylor Eton College. I purchased it after smelling Eton College...

    buying a new brush?

    Because this community is full of addicts. At least we're not on crack. Well... most of us.

    I got a Wade & Butcher for $10 at an Antique Store

    To clarify about the tightness/looseness of the pin, it's not free-spinning the whole rotation. It actually tightens up pretty nicely past 180 degrees, which is where I'd want it tight. It's just that currently, it flops open pretty easily from the "closed" position, and I see it as an...

    Most Relaxing Video - Mama Bear Shaving Soap

    Ok, I went to Mama Bear's site, and I watched the video they have embedded in the page showing soap lathering. I just about fell asleep from watching it, it's so relaxing. Here it is. Enjoy. mDsptQLRA00

    I got a Wade & Butcher for $10 at an Antique Store

    There's a ridiculous amount of antique shops in Franklin. It's like the antiquing capital of the country. There's at least 30 shops, mostly around historic downtown Franklin. I went to about 15-20 shops back in 2008 when I was looking for gifts for my groomsmen. I later bailed on the idea of...

    WHATUP SMYRNA!!! Nice, Bill! I work in Smyrna all the time! Hahaha small world, right? Ya, I live in Franklin. Hendersonville is a bit of a drive from where I live (Practically Spring Hill), but local would be cool. You're not by any chance Bill the filmmaker are you? If you say...

    BTW - are bone handles particularly valuable? I'm thinking they wouldn't be, but I really don't know.

    The under $10 restoration challenge.

    Okay, I'm in. This looks like fun. And thanks for the invite, Legion. Here's some pics I took before I even wiped down the blade on my $10 beauty. I got this in 2008 for $10, and it's just been sitting in my closet ever since. This will be my very first straight razor of any kind...

    I got a Wade & Butcher for $10 at an Antique Store

    First off, thanks to all of you for taking a look and even more for commenting. Second, they're definitely bone scales. I had to look it up. The lady in the antique shop said 'they may be ivory'. Hmmm... I really didn't know the difference, but I'm thinking now that she must have. If she...
