    Status of L’Occitane Cade Cream?

    I haven´t been on wetshaving for long, but I remember using the "Rich" cream on a tub, and the performance was better that the tube. Then it disappeared from the stores. Recently I bought online a tube of cream and I recieved one of the old package stock, so I haven´t tried the ones with the new...

    Alternative to the R41

    Muhle Rocca... for me it´s the efficiency of the R41 and the smoothness of the R89... plus it´s SS Cheers

    Vintage Gold Tone blades

    Never tried them but they look great 😂😂 There's an old thread about them Gold-Tone Razor Blades - https://www.badgerandblade.com/forum/threads/gold-tone-razor-blades.499141/ but apparently no one used them. My guess is that they're carbon because if they were SS there's no need for the gold...

    The correct blades? Valet Autostrop and GEM

    Like @Ladit said, and I might add that the #8 & #9 had the handles switched... And just for the fun, you might put a spine on a FHS-10 but it doesn´t fit the GEM razors.... :biggrin1: :biggrin1: I tried :biggrin1::biggrin1: Cheers

    Where is the Tallow?!

    When I use "fad" I mean people that think they´re Vegan but they really aren't. They just consume based on the big marketing labels and don´t read the ingredients at detail... Cheers

    Where is the Tallow?!

    I confer that the last word must be spoken after the testing of the soap, but still there´s the case that even if the new formula performs well, the base of us who used the tallow formula might find it "inferior" because the lather might not has the same cushion, the same slickness, in sum, it...

    you ever feel guilty with all the gear you have? razors, blades etc etc

    Never feel guilty for anything I owned, or spent on in my life. It all came from the fruits of my labor and even if it made me happy for a split second, I think I deserve it. And the only regret I have in my life is having sold my Red 65 Ford Mustang :biggrin1::biggrin1:... Cheers

    The Double Edge Shaving Apocalypse of 1970

    Same as with DVD´s vs VHS, I think it was profit, for Gillette and others. Here in my country I remember the DE´s started to disappear in the 80s and the main seller was the local version of the "Good News" razor, called "Prestobarba". I remember that it was common on many households to buy a...
