    Grooming Department Disappointment

    If you are worried about GD soap going down the drain too quickly I would suggest you buy the pre-shave balm. This stuff turns every soap into a great soap, it will last you years and it leaves your skin feeling great. I was having a rough week of shaves and then I used the pre-shave and...

    Fatip Piccolo (or any fatip OC) vs Merkur 37C?

    These are both great and they give great shaves. I find the 37c to be an easy razor to shave with. The fatip is a bit more efficient but it’s not aggressive to me and I tend to find most OCs don’t agree with my face. Both are keepers.

    Timeless Aluminum Razor Set

    The 37c is another razor I reach for when I want an easy, close shave. For me the Timeless AL offers a very similar experience with a touch more efficiency. I use no pressure and have had nothing but great shaves with it. It’s not aggressive for me. My Asylum RX on the other hand is what I would...

    Timeless Aluminum Razor Set

    I have been shaving with the Timeless aluminum everyday since last Thursday. For me it delivers an easy, smooth 2 pass BBS shave with no worries. The fact I’m still using it tells me how good it is. I buy all kinds if razors and tend to rotate. It’s a much easier shave than the .78 bronze. I...

    Karve Stainless Steel

    I’d just like to get the PEEK razor I ordered in early April (and a C OC plate). Emails, FB post and messenger inquiries went unanswered for weeks. I won’t be ordering anything from Karve again. I’m patient but don’t ignore me once you have my money and I was by no means incessant or the like. I...

    Sudsy Soapery question

    In eagerly awaiting the rain release. I had drifted away from SS for no reason other than I have a lot of soaps I rotate them. White sage and lime is tops for me and the A/S is one of the best both in scent and post shave feel.

    Karve Stainless Steel

    I just wish he’d reply to my 2 emails, 1messenger message and FB post inquiring when the PEEK razor I paid for 9 weeks ago will be shipping. Doesn’t seem to be too much to ask.

    Maggard's Artisan Barbershop shave soap

    Maggards Oakmoss is one of my favorite scents, it’s absolutely wonderful and my favorite Fougère scent. I see they no longer offer it :(
