    Multiple Safetery Razor Shelf or Stand

    I also use the test holder, but I got the two level one: https://www.amazon.ca/gp/product/B00DJ73XXW/ref=ppx_yo_dt_b_asin_title_o00_s00?ie=UTF8&psc=1 I have two of these side by side and they sit on top of a shelf. I like that the second row is elevated so I can see them easier, whereas if...

    Can I reuse my Colonel Conk wooden shaving bowl?

    I had to google the bowl, thats a great looking bowl, with a lid to boot! Yes to reuse, yes to rinse it clean, dry, and plunk a new puck of conk in it. And if you fancy something else? Plunk something else in it (if it doesn't fit, grate/shave it down and squish it in) and enjoy it.

    Has anyone used a muhle Silvertip fiber brush? Would you recommend it?

    I have a paa atomic rocket and am enjoying it enough that I am looking at another synthetic (just one more.. ) and the muhle stf is always brought here and there.. kinda juggling it in my mind. Size wise I read for some reason they feel a touch smaller than they are? I was looking at the...

    Semogue SOC Mistura | Your Impressions & Mine

    If this has been covered, I apologize, but how do you break in a mistura brush? I'm guessing it's just "use it and enjoy the journey" thing... does the brush it on a towel thing work like it would for a boar?

    Length between shaves

    I'd love to be able to shave everyday, but it simply doesn't grow fast enough for me. Maybe every 2-3 days for me? If I want to shave every 2 days then I'll shorten it to 2 passes. I will say that things you learn/techniques you hone over time will improve your shave no matter what you use...

    Semogue SOC Mistura | Your Impressions & Mine

    Thanks for putting up that link @Chan Eil Whiskers Jim, and yes, do look around, diff vendors will have diff shipping deals/thresholds and yes. I just have purchased from pf before (my soc boar a few years ago, coincidently) and was comfortable with everything. Btw, pf does accept Paypal, if...

    All that face stuff?

    I also have a fairly simple routine, everybody had their own thing which works for them, being curious to find something better? Is good, but I wouldn't get too wrapped on "needing" complication? Whatever works, makes you happy, you know?

    Travel Brushes

    Thats a great idea Ron! I'm sitting here probably overestimating the amount I travel to justify my need for a dedicated travel brush.

    Simpson Brushes | Tell Me True | Is Mashing Bad?

    I swirl away, and it splays down a bit? But I don't mash it down to the handle, not that I make it a point to avoid, but it just never gets to that point during my usual shaves, Simpson brush or any other brush. I just load and have plenty of soap for shaving, without needing to mash.

    Semogue SOC Mistura | Your Impressions & Mine

    I made the move and clicked submit on a butterscotch mistura. This is probably already common knowledge, but if you're thinking of picking one up, have a glance at the Portuguese Factory website before buying from them on ebay, its cheaper. (I saved $20). I'm guessing they bake the shipping...

    Best place to buy injector and AC blades

    My ac feather proguards I've purchased one at a time from ebay (sort by low to high $) and just take the lowest, back then I only had one se ag shaver so I went through blades really slow. My latest ac blade purchase I was -going- to buy from italian barber and a bunch of other stuff, but they...
