    Would P&G sell TAOS?

    My bet is they'll be sold within a year. If eShave buys 'em it would be a case of shaving Schadenfreude :001_cool:

    Who got a "Goose?

    Got my 'goose a couple days ago and used it for the first time this morning, with a Feather Pro blade. A very good shave, though not BBS yet: the wider blade and a different blade angle compared to what I'm used to (Merkur Progress w/Polsilver blade) will take some adjustment. But a gorgeous...

    How do you film yourself shaving? or doing an instructional video?

    As a matter of fact I'm working on a post and Youtube video about 'how to make a shaving video' :001_smile Preview: A "professional" setup isn't necessary (just look at some of my earlier vids! And I've seen several people successfully pull off a vid with a smartphone or tablet) but there are a...

    lucky tiger liquid shave?

    I like LT's shaving cream (indeed, most of the LT line) quite a bit--I use it when I'm in a hurry. It's brushless but will work with a brush. Unlike Tony's experience I find the cushion fine and the lubrication better than a lot of other brushless creams. I find the scent one of those...

    Thanks, I'll wander over there... :001_smile

    So you're supposed to hold the brush by the bristles?

    Or you could just ask me about it. :001_smile You certainly don't have to do it that way but there are several reasons to give it a try. As alex2363 says it can keep the bristles a little stiffer for better control if you have a high-loft or floppy brush. But the main reason I do it is for...
