    Cheap Caps on 400 ml Proraso Bottles (Red & Green)

The old caps are made of a hard, sturdy plastic and have a nylon insert inside that seals the bottle opening. They work really well. The new bottles have a cheap flexible cap that will seem like you...

    Vitalis users...

    How do you apply it (Vitalis) to your hair? Do you put it on your hands first then apply to your hair? Or do you put it directly on your scalp and massage it in? I ask this because when I was young, I remember my barber pouring it directly on my head while holding his hand on my forehead so...

    Been smoking a lot of Sir Walter Raleigh Aromatic lately

    Merkur blades...

    I can't believe how long I've ignored these blades because of posts here. Been using the blades in my Merkur 34c for the past month and they are without a doubt, the best blade I've ever used. And I've tried em all. Was a die-hard Astra SP fan for the past couple years. Now I'm starting to...

    Are Dunhill Elizabethan and Escudo Similar?

    Ok, I'm thinking about when Dunhill Elizabethan is no-longer available. Don't have both right now but while smoking Dunhill Elizabethan I can't help but think it's almost exactly like Escudo. (...I prefer the DE ribbon cut over the coins though.) Yes / No ?

    Pipe Engineering - Short stem pipes will smoke hot

    Short stem pipes will smoke hot because your mouth is closer to the heat source. Look at the classic designs and you'll never see short shank / stem pipes. Just saying..
