    Occam's SE, First shave

    This morning, I used my new Black Hawk for the first time (with an AC Professional and Mitchell's Wool Fat). It has a more aggressive blade posture than the Oren, is about just as light, but it has a much more grippable handle. After just two passes, I had a perfectly stubble-less, immaculate...

    You cost me some money! After reading your post, I ordered a Black Hawk.

    Occam's SE, First shave

    I have been on an SE roll for the last several weeks. My Mongoose has become the go-to razor in my collection. I recently bought the Occam's SE Razor from Classic Shaving, and I used it this morning for the first time. I used the two-dot head (the one between the mildest one-dot and the most...

    West Coast Shaving: Gatsby Soap Lathering Video

    Somehow, in many years of DE wet shaving, Gatsby soap has escaped my attention. Until now. It is increasingly rare for me to use a new soap and be blown away by it, but such was my experience with the Gatsby #1. Beautiful, rich lather. A pleasant but not overpowering scent. And a BBS on the...

    Another Napa Soap Thread

    I have never found Napa soap to be a weak latherer. On the contrary, I am able to whip up an ample, thick lather in a short period of time. It is not one of my very favorite soaps, but it is definitely a high quality, good-shaving one.

    napa soap company?

    I have tried the Vintner's Blend and the Ocean Blend. Both are fantastic. Lots of smooth lather and beautiful scents. This brand is one of my favorites.

    New Rockwell 6C ..... a sublime shave experience.

    I think my experiment has come to an end. This morning I got an excellent BBS shave using a Crystal blade at the R5 setting. So, the Rockwell razor is a keeper after all! One just needs the right blade (NOT the Rockwells, which I can now throw out) and to find the baseplate that works best...

    Rockwell Blades

    I agree that it is stupid to ship these razors with such terrible blades. My first impression of the razor was chafing, weepers, and -- worst of all -- a terrible shave that left way too much stubble behind. These are not "forgiving," they are just bad blades.

    West Coast Shaving Hyperion

    Right now, I am alternating among Mühle R89, Hyperion, single-edged Mongoose, and (occasionally) the Artist's Club mock straight. I still haven't found the perfect razor for me, but I'm trying.

    New Rockwell 6C ..... a sublime shave experience.

    I used the Rockwell 6c again this morning: R5 with the Rockwell blade. I had less chafing, no weepers, but, still, an overall poor shave with too much stubble left behind. Tomorrow I will follow your advice and try R4 with one of my go-to blades (probably the Crystal IP). I would to get a...

    West Coast Shaving Hyperion

    I shaved with the Rockwell again today: R5 using the Rockwell blade again. Less chafing, no weepers, but, still, a poor shave overall. I am ready to try it at R4 using a Crystal blade tomorrow. I am surprised to hear that you like these blades in another razor. Maybe I'll try one in another...

    New Rockwell 6C ..... a sublime shave experience.

    It always amazes me how subjective our shaving preferences are. As a result of the very positive reviews, I purchased the Rockwell 6C from West Coast. This morning I tried it for the first time. I used one of the Rockwell blades enclosed in the box, and I decided to start by using the R3 setting...

    West Coast Shaving Hyperion

    I have been using my new Hyperion razor this week. It is one of the Artisan Series, designed in collaboration with Brian Twilley of Charcoal Goods. They are all of stainless steel, made by the Computer Numerical Control (CNC) process. I like this razor a lot. It has a last-a-lifetime feel to...
