    Timeless First Responder gift / discount?

    Does anyone know what the gift or % discount is? I am trying to figure out if I should compile something from the S&D vs. just buying new. The benefit from buying new: I can return for $10 if I am not happy w/ the shave for me. Vs. S&D: I can only sell on BST at some loss and wait...

    Hello, I sold one razor recently and can't post these free razors in the BST so here they are. Before anyone gets too excited, I have to say that these are projects I never completed and I see them as practice blades for honing or other work (grinding, polishing, etc.) I will send them for...

    Roger & Gallet Extra-Vielle

    I am trying this out and while the description is primarily citrus, to my nose, on my skin this seems much more green and fresh and soapy, and actually quite wearable by a youthful guy like me. One added advantage is that I don't think anyone else around me wears stuff like this I was...

    Not a single review of Rooney Finest???

    Hi guys I find it quite weird that there isn't a single instance of a Rooney Finest brush evaluation in the Brush Review section. There are several reviews for the high end Simpsons and a couple for Plisson. Since Rooney's Finest bristle is the highest grade hair from one of the top 3...

    Plisson HMW= soap / cream hogs?

    Since we are talking Plisson (and reading about the 2-band brushes I consider myself lucky to have a 3-band) I was wondering: Does your HMW (mine is a 12) seem to use much more cream / soap? Mine makes a fabulous lather, but I find it's a bit much and I lately reach much more often for a...
