    What Shaving gear have you “Stocked up on”?

    I used to stock up on creams and stuff I liked and had a huge hoard, but I switched to a beard for like 7 years and all of it just kind of collected dust under my sink during that time. The creams and aftershaves turned and went bad for the most part. I would trim with a DE, but I only needed...

    How important is having a container top for your shave soap or grated shave stick?

    I've burned through many pucks in my old spice mug which does not have a lid. I haven't noticed anything off whatsoever in the couple years I've used it.

    Anyone use just one?

    For the past year I only used a Super Adjustable, Red Personnas, Semogue 1305, C&E Sandalwood Soap, and either Old Spice or Bay Rum. Recently changed it up and got a Slim Adjustable and restored an ever-ready brush with a nice grade A silvertip knot. Going to change it up and use AOS Lavendar...

    Most overrated shaving product.

    Scuttles are definitely overrated. As is adding your own glycerin/making uberlather. All you'll get from either are odd looks from your significant other. Not to mention, the 3+ pass shave is highly overrated. 2 is all that is needed. It's shaving your face people, newbies take this stuff...

    Goodbye Trumpers

    I always thought the TOBS scents smelled pretty cheap. I got a Trumper sampler and it didn't really drive it home for me either. I have been exclusively a soap guy for the past year. I recently have come back to creams all due to an Art of Shaving sample. That seems to be the best, easily...

    What Lavender cream should i try next?

    I was in Sephora with my wife and asked for a sample of the AOS Lavender Cream. They gave me enough for about 5 shaves and the stuff worked great. Sold me on buying a jar and bought a new grade A silvertip knot from TGN to restore a brush I have to use with the cream. I've been an exclusively...

    What do you do when you don't have time for your usual DE or Straight shave?

    after you've been using a DE for a while, you can get it done in 5-10 minutes as usual. It doesn't have to be a massive ritual.

    Brian Eno fans out there?

    HUGE Eno fan. I collect vinyl and try to grab anything with his name on it. My favorite album of his is "Before and After Science", my favorite album he produced is Talking Heads "Fear of Music". I really like the first couple Roxy Music albums also, but Bryan Ferry is such a douche. Phil...

    shaving soap vs. shaving cream

    To me, it's all the same in the end except that soap lasts longer. Either one takes me 30 seconds to face lather. It doesnt really make a difference, but soap is more bang for your buck.
