    Shavette suggestions

    100% regarding the feather blades. The performance, or more specifically, the level of comfort, is pretty much night and day after a couple of shaves.

    Shavette suggestions

    You'll find your way in due time. I, for one, haven't found the DE option to be effective. Mainly because of the thin/short blades. Compared to the artist club blades, they feel a bit more 'bitey', less forgiving. Unlike a straight razor,, I'm starting to realize that price/quality doesn't...

    Shavette suggestions

    As an exclusive Shavette user, for almost a year now, this is a great thread. A quick 2 cents for the OP. If your previous method was DE shaving, rather than Shavettes, I'd say go for the Feather SS 'style'. e.g....the kind with the 'lip'. The reason being is that it forces (or has) a minimum...

    What's your soap for today?

    I really like the classy look of that wood tub. It would be nice to see some of the current artisans release one with a wood bowl. How's the soap though? I'm yet to try this line.

    Improving the neck shave. Blade chatter, angles and atg.

    .......as an alternative, you could try to get your hands on a vintage GEM-style razor. You can find them at a very reasonable cost. Usually around the $10 mark. The single edge blades they use are thicker and much more rigid than DE blades. If you do end up going that route, see if the seller...

    Improving the neck shave. Blade chatter, angles and atg.

    Haha. I love #4, as I often wonder the same thing. I wonder if the issue with the neck area is down to DE's themselves. Would they be missed if you went back to straights?..or even shavettes? I'm not sure if what I'm about to say will be useful or even considered, but In my experience, the...

    Frag Acquisitions

    Fully agree with the summer frags. I absolutely love Pacific Rock Moss, but for the performance, which is lacking....at best, the price tag is way too high. Instead I'll be grabbing a low cost dupe alternative. I just need to find one that's available in Canada. All of that said, regarding...

    Hey @SixCats! You've put in some serious work with the recent replies. I can feel the enthusiasm you have towards fragrances. I tried Encre Noir, but unfortunately, it wasn't for me.....AT ALL! I ended up PIF'ing it to someone who loves Vetiver, and ended up loving EN; So, that's a win for me...

    Sheeesh! :facep: clearly I missed this reply at the time of posting. Thanks for the great info. At first, I really didn't like the 'try before you buy' approach, because even though it's only been less than a year for me, samples add up......QUICKLY! However, I've received a few samples that...
