    And all this time, I thought they were Personnas.

    Voskhod & Rapira are made in Moscow. Gillette (P&G) is part owner of the St. Petersburg plant which makes Astra, most 7 O'Clock, Nacet, GSB, etc. So probably KCG as well.

    Opinions on Arko Scent?

    Red coloring: mine I'd point out that urinal cakes are there to cover up the smell of the urinal. So Arko smells a lot better than the urinal. OTOH, it's too much fun to bust on the Arko-holics to ever give up on that.

    What's the most overrated shaving cream?

    IMNSHO, most over-rated is Cella. It's the only cream that's ever gone bad on me. Most over-priced is AoS at their own stores. At Marshall's prices, it's not half bad.

    Don't forget your technique!

    Probably. And it's also widely used as a preservative, so it should help you last longer, too!

    Which is why you're not as bad as AA, presumably. Mind you, @FarmerTan's current avatar looks like his War Department is reaching out to smack him, so maybe he's concussed.

    what constitutes an expert

    Any regular here would qualify as an expert to the cartridge crowds. I'm in awe of the in-depth knowledge shown by some of our more knowledgable and experienced members.

    what constitutes an expert

    "An expert is a man who knows just that much more about his subject than his associates. Most of us are nearer the top than we think. We fail to realize how easy it is, how necessary it is to learn that fraction more." William N. Hutchins

    Vanderhagen soap. Good, bad, meh?

    Williams is slicker, but VDH lathers a bit quicker. VDH is very good at their price point. WMS is good regardless of price.

    What order?..alum and witch hazel

    I use alum whenever I audition a new razor/blade combo, and whenever my shave feels a bit rough. I always follow up with WH and Nivea PSB, almost never a splash.
