    September 14 Still using the Razorock soap. It started to develop a hole in the middle late last month. I pressed the soap down to fill it and noticed it had softened up a bit. I felt little beads in it and it almost has the consistency of floam. I've been letting it air dry for 30 minutes...

    Single Edge SEptember 2021

    SEptember 4 shave. A bummer of a situation happened yesterday. I was trying to load a Schick blade into my Supply razor and it started going in above the old blade. So I removed the new blade, tightened the screw a bit and tried again with the same result. Then I removed the plate to put the...

    Single Edge SEptember 2021

    Count me in as well. I've been using an injector for a month trying out a few blades to find a favorite.

    Can SE blades make you lazy?

    I found that the Schick injector blades can last for a month or longer. The best DE can last up to 2 weeks. Add to that the SE blade remains in the razor in between uses and it does keep me from reaching for other razors.

    June 5. I've been using the Razorock soap for about a month. The scent and performance have remained the same. Loading however became more difficult when I switched brushes. The first week of shaves were with a Simpsons Berkeley best badger which was able to get enough soap for 3 passes. The...

    May 7 I've been using the Razorock soap for a few days and have had some successful shaves. According to the website the scent is Tabacco Toscano Colonia; think Toscano cigar with hints of vanilla, amber and a backdrop of eucalyptus and menthol. What I noticed is an earthy scent (which is...

    May 5. Started a jar of Santa Maria del Fiore Sapone Da Barba by Razorock. The packaging has a very high end feel with 8.5 oz of soap in a glass jar with a kraft style label. I got this soap for free from the PIF table at Maggard's meetup 3 years ago and it was used. The jar is pretty full, but...

    May 4. The Van der Hagen soap is finished. I used my Rudy Vey brush this morning to load from the little sliver left in the tub, added a little water and loaded a bit more. The lather was decent and protected well giving a good shave. I checked the tub after work and there was barely any left...

    April 2 The Van der Hagen soap is going strong. The puck still hasn't developed a hole though it is a little lopsided. Today's shave I used a Simpsons Berkeley brush (which really gets a good load quickly), Noxzema pre shave, Merkur Progress set at 5 and and Drakar Noir ASB. This was the first...

    March 13. Still using the Van der Hagen soap. Over the past week I've noticed it's softened up a bit and doesn't need as wet of a brush or as much loading time. The scent has gotten a little weaker though performance remains the same. Today's shave included a little Noxzema as a pre shave which...
