    Daughter Got Into My Blades!

    So today was a new one and a potential close call. My two year old very busy daughter loves to watch me shave. She likes to sniff the shaving soap, hold my brush, help me make the lather, etc. I got shaving away and did what every good parent does- generally ignored the activity and noise she...

    Barbershop Fragrances

    I love love love the smell of Stirling Barbershop. I had the EDT on the other day and my dad said “wow you smell good”. However, Stirling EDTs really don’t have much longevity on me. Anyone know of colognes that have that Barbershop type scent?

    Executive Man vs Royal Forest

    I just got an order from West Coast Shaving which includes Stirling Executive Man and TOBS Royal Forest. I am finding them to be pretty similar. If it wasn’t for the cost of shipping I’d maybe send the TOBS back to get something a little different. I guess I was surprised about their similarity...

    Surprised by Old Navy Ember

    I've only recently started "caring" about cologne. For the longest time the cologne I used was from American Eagle, and a bottle lasted me...years. Recently, when I realized I needed more, I found they had stopped making it. So, my wife was headed on a shopping trip and I said, "Hey, find a...

    Planning a Rockwell 6c and Razorock Gamechanger Shootout...

    I'm somewhat new to the DE game (few months), but I'm not a person that wants a pile of razors sitting around, mixing and matching blades for different shaves. I want 2-3 solid razors that I'm happy with. My first DE, and one I still enjoy, is the Merkur 34c, is an easy going, mindless shave and...

    Do All Proraso Shave Creams Have Menthol!

    I like the performance, scent, and ease of Proraso Green Shave Cream, but I’m finding I’m sensitive to menthol. I do not enjoy the scent of the red. Does the White and Blue have menthol too? Same amount? What would be an alternative given my menthol issue?

    Should AS Splashes Burn?

    I read somewhere on here that I’d you use an alcohol based aftershave splash and it burns your shaving technique is bad. I’m a couple months into DE shaving and my technique has come a long way, but I usually use a balm. Today I used Clubman Pinaud for the first time and great googly moogly that...

    What Happened to Shaveology?

    Does anyone know where the Shaveology brand has dissipated to? I just started another thread about trying to make my own version of their pre-shave oil. I really like it. I jumped on Amazon to search for it again to check ingredients....and its gone. There are only a couple products left with...

    DIY Pre-Shave Oil?

    I'm thinking about making my own pre-shave oil. I'm guessing plenty of you here have DIY'd it. My favorite pre-shave is Shaveology pre-shave oil, something I never see mentioned around here. I like the performance, and I also like that it isn't a super thick oil.....sometimes Stirling pre-shave...

    What One Soap Brand Should I Try?

    Hi all. The only three shave soaps/creams I've experienced are Taylor of Old Bond Street, Stirling, and Proraso. In my 2 month DE journey, I've already bought quite a handful of soaps and razors, so I owe it to myself to slow down. What one other soap company would you encourage me to try in...

    First Shave With Rockwell 6c

    Finally got my Rockwell 6c and had my first shave. Used the 3 plate. Really nice shave, really enjoyed it. Best shave in awhile. I see why they are so popular. My only problem has been that on part of my neck near the midline my hair grows straight horizontally. When I shave ATG in those areas...

    1st Plate On Rockwell 6c?

    Wondering folks’ advice on which plate to start with on a Rockwell 6c, which comes in this week. Currently I predominantly use a 34c and ‘69 Gillette Tech. I have a fairly sensitive neck, and am about 15 shaves into DE shaving. Was thinking I’d start on the #3. Thoughts?

    Razorock BBS First Impressions

    Had my first shave with the RR BBS today. I procured it from the BTS from a fine member and had a positive purchase experience. I loaded it with a fresh Nacet blade and lathered with Stirling Hipster after my usual shower and pre-shave oil. I was really hoping this would be a “magic bullet”...
