    Scent vs Performance

    I find that 99% of artisan soaps perform at pretty much the same level. I wonder if the whole performance talk is to just make this hobby seem more interesting :-) So I would have to say I appreciate the scent more.

    Solid colognes?

    I have one solid cologne and I find the scents are less 'complex' than a traditional edt. The top notes are more or less not there and the scent doesn't change much over the wear. I do find that it lasts longer on me though, probably due to the wax consistency. A hack to get liquid colognes...

    Poll: What is your favourite Proraso ASB?

    I didn't know they made a red balm. I have the red splash which I love. I'll have to look into the balm. It's one of my favorite scents.

    GSBs: Canada, eh!

    Thanks for the heads up. I just ordered 100 blades. I'm using Nacets right now but going to give these a try.

    Commadore X3 and Colonel X2L purchase question.

    I had a Colonel X2L for a couple months but had to return it because it was shedding 20+ hairs a shave. I've heard others having this issue with Simpson brushes as well. Not to discourage you, just keep that in the back of your mind.

    Gillette cool wave is underrated

    I have a bottle and it smells awesome. I don't use it often but when I do it has beast strength and longevity.

    Careful with the Futur....they tend to bite :-)

    Opinions: Best razor that is available on the market currently

    I have 8 razors and the best one for me by far is my Rockwell 6s. I never use my others now.

    Razorock German 37 Slant is very picky about its blades

    I'm gonna have to revisit this razor with some different blades. I could never get a comfortable cut free shave with this razor in the past so I have shelved it.

    Rockwell 6C Settings

    For me plate 3 with a Polsilver Iridium or Nacet is the best. There is something about plate 4 on my 6s that always seems to give me bad shaves. If I want a more aggressive shave I jump right to plate 5 which seems to be smoother that 4.

    Proraso Green

    I like all the Proraso soaps. The only issue I have is they tend to be drying. Luckily their AS balm is one of the best I have tried.

    New Blade EVERY time?

    No I usually do 3 shaves, maybe 4. I find the 2nd and 3rd shave smoother than the first.

    Anyone currently using the Merkur Futur? What do you think of it?

    This! I had a Futur which I traded away and then got the Qshave clone. They are pretty much identical. Unfortunately both where way too aggressive for my tastes.

    What are your thoughts on Aqua Velva Musk?

    I had a bottle. It's gross.

    Rockwell Razors (6S/6C): A Three Year Follow-up Review...

    My 6s is the only razor I really use now. I love the industrial look too.
