    Feather blades

    In the past, I have tried these blades in medium aggressive razors and hated them. Uncomfortable, irrition . I recently bought ATT M1 which has a very small blade gap, I suspect is close to a Feather razor. I recently added some feather blades to a soap order I had a very comfortable and close...

    Any soaps you won't buy again?

    I've hard water but had no problems with MWF. I found the only problem was the boring scent and kept saying to myself...if only they'd make a rose or lavender scent, it would be perfect!

    Using a soap block?

    I bought block of vitos as i liked the idea of an endless soap supply. It was very easy to break the hl9ck up and put some in an empty shave soap bowl. All the blocks seem to be like that. However, I didn't like the soap much, but, they are cheap enough and if you like them like others do...

    Way too much soap

    Badger brushes.......I’m now 100% a Synthetic guy

    I've got a Mùhle travel brush and was amazed at how soft and easy it was to make a lather. This after using a chubby 3.! It's a small knot, and I wonder if you can recommend a larger Mùhle or EJ.

    What do you value most with a shave?

    The feeling of luxurious lather, face lathering with a quality soft brush. One of life's great pleasure.

    help pick my next soap

    Ì think very highly of Meißner soaps and their softer pastes. They have some very exciting scents which do not vanish, but linger after the shave.
