    Someone with turning skills?

    I have two knots left over from all the restorations I've done and when I realized I was going to have leftovers I saved my two favorite knots (a 2-band and a mixed, both are 20mm). I was thinking it would be cool to use some of the downed limbs from the camp I work at to have some handles made...

    Women/Wives Soap Poll

    My wife just recently switched over to using the Leaf razor. She asked me to find out on the forum what other women tend to use for lubrication for their legs and armpits when using safety razors. So here's a poll. Thanks for the input.

    Near tragedy

    I've been keeping an eye out for a Seto Marujyu scuttle for around 2 years. The few times I saw one for sale they were just too much to justify ($45-$75). Grabbed on the other day for $22 and it arrived yesterday. I cleaned it up a bit last night and took it for a spin today. And wouldn't...

    Fezziwig from Black Ship Grooming

    Only review I could find for this was one response on their website. Maggard's had it listed in recent products but out of stock but the Black Ship website still had some so I decided to buy it. They describe it as: "Twirl away my friends with our new Fezziwig Shaving Soap! It's our first...

    Brush ID

    I bought this brush on the auction I don't actually think the brush is a Rubberset - which is fine. I mostly wanted the box and thought the brush was interesting and may or may not refurbish well. The box says B-300B and 1) I haven't been able to find any examples of this elsewhere being a...

    Any curling fans here?

    Hey all - My wife and I always enjoy watching curling in the Winter Olympics and discovered last year that through ESPN3/ESPN+ we could access the Scotties and Brier here in the US. We watched both last year and right before the pandemic hit we actually found a curling club about an hour...

    Great scent, not so great performance

    I grabbed Sir Hare Barbershop off Amazon early in my wet shaving journey and IMMEDIATELY fell in love with the scent. The lather on the other hand... It's not AWFUL, but it's not good either. It's just meh. So much so that I often start by loading my brush with some Stirling unscented, wipe...

    My vintage blade journal

    I've never tried vintage blades - save for one experience with a NOS GEM blade that was interesting but meh at best. However, I've spent a lot of time over the past few days reading up on various DE blades and I am really intrigued by them. Remembered I had a NOS (sealed until this weekend)...

    This one deserves its own thread - best brush ever

    I'm biased I know but I think my daughter knocked this out of the park! We started with an old Solid Set with a bad paint job - sanded to bare wood . My 15 year old daughter came up with the design and painted it herself. I put on the poly and installed a Shave Forge 20mm Silvertip badger...

    So I pre-ordered a Rockwell 6S in the blue coating on August 7th and the website said it would ship by August 21st. I went back to the website on the 21st to confirm it has shipped and the date had been postponed to the following week. I went back today to see if it had shipped (had been on...

    Which Knot Should I Get?

    So I have 32 knots sitting in my Shave Forge cart (in addition to the knot I just ordered from TGN). Some are for me, some are for some refurbs I'm doing. A blend of synthetics, mixed badger/boar, 2-band, silvertip, and HMW. However, I have one more knot to order as I have a Rubberset 200...
