    Face lathering tips for samples?

    This makes me want to get my Arko stick out my travel bag.

    Face lathering tips for samples?

    Interesting! I wouldn't have known that a gob of soap could fuse onto another soap well enough to rub on face. Thank you.

    Face lathering tips for samples?

    What about creams. If not using a bowl do you rub the cream on your face?

    Face lathering tips for samples?

    Wow! Learned a new word. Had to look ramekin up. 🙂. Thanks! I bought some Stirling samples last year which were easy as they were a thin slice off of a puck and were about 4" around. Fit nicely in the bottom of an old soap tub. I'll do the same with these blobs of soap that came in a bag, smash...

    Face lathering tips for samples?

    I'm moving towards short lofted scrubby brushes that work really well for face lathering, not so much for bowl. Works great to load a scrubby off a puck. But what about samples where there is no tub/puck? Any tips on how to face lather with sample size soaps?

    Lather problems with artisan soaps

    OP, to be clear, are you taking some of the soap out of the sample container, about the size of an almond, and pressing it into the bottom of your lathering bowl. I'm sure you are. You can't load a brush in the small sample container.

    Carbon Cx Ti ++ Vs. Haircut & Shaving Ti PO76

    Neither of these razors have been available for a while, but there are some Carbon Ti for sale today. For $150 less than the H&S and reportedly a wee bit smoother at the expense of some efficiency, I picked up the XX plated razor in Ti. Looking forward to comparing it to the Wolf WR2, although...

    Blackland just announced the Ti Blackbird and the OC Vector...

    Hmm. Some Carbon Ti just got put up. Bought the XX plate. $350USD. I guess I'll be trying both.

    SynBad vs SilkSmoke

    Sure you'll feel the difference. Can't say one is "better" than the other, but I prefer the broader size of the fan for face lathering especially with painting strokes.

    just one brush

    Having one of Bob's handles is definitely on my radar.

    Glue bumps are hard!

    Finally got this glue bump out. Ordered some router bits for my rotary tool. The bit I was using had no blade, more of a sander (foreground in pic). The glue definitely requires a bit with a sharp cutting edge. Still did some damage to my acrylic handle, but I did reknot it anyways.

    Silksmoke in a fan knot.

    Blackland just announced the Ti Blackbird and the OC Vector...

    I've never had a Blackland product nor a titanium razor. I've been waiting for this one. Timeless and bullgoose are the only places I've seen that stock Ti razors. I hope these will be stocked.

    SynBad vs SilkSmoke

    I too have a silksmoke that will try as soon as I can get the glue bump out of another handle to set it in. I agree that the Synbad is very soft, I prefer the 2BED over it.

    WOLFMAN Order Wait List - What Razor / Configuration Did Order?

    I hope it's only seven months still, not that it really matters. Really like my big gap WR2, but very curious to try the WR1. I went back on waitlist in August after receiving my WR2.
