    So I want to start exploring whisky.

    Hey there. Just starting this process myself. A friend of mine let me try some pappy van winkle 20 yr and of course it was great. I started researching and picked up a bottle of larceny and a bottle of Blantons (the first classy bourbon I ever had). Larceny is similar to Wellers and makers...

    zed117's Year of Stirling

    Stirling sandalwood is a synthetic fragrance. I think I remember reading a comment that Rod made that real Sandalwood oil is a couple hundred bucks for a small bottle and that it just wasn't economically feasible. I've really only shaved with Stirling stuff the past few months. My favorite...

    Lather Pics

    I just used the tutorial on here with the luke warm water method and stuck with it for a while. Used a bowl and added a little water as I went but focused on keeping the lather down in the bottom of the bowl.

    My new RV brush!

    it never will bloom as much as the WD knot. that 2 band is a dense strong knot. you will grow to love it though! I'm about six months into owning my RV 24/48mm 2 band brush and at first I thought it was too stiff, but it broke in nicely. Here it is on the right next to my 24 and 30mm...

    MdC and Sensitive Skin

    interesting. I had noticed a little extra burn when I used my fougére a few days after getting a sunburn. I only use it occasionally now and it doesn't cause me any more problems. But I've also settled into using a British aristocrat Jr. pretty much exclusively now and it's a smoother milder...

    If I like Astra SP, Voskhod, Personna Lab Blue, then I should also like __________

    wow, this thread interests me because i do like viskhods and Astra SP's, but it seems like just about every blade has been named by someone or another. a thought, would someone who's posted recommendations also post some "do not buy" warnings? it seems that someone who likes these blades is...

    Which knot from Rudy Vey?

    Mine came in earlier this week, the TGN two band knot started out REALLY stiff, but it's bloomed out a bit and I've had a chance to use it twice now. Really enjoying it, and you can't beat the look.

    Which knot from Rudy Vey?

    I have a 24/48 whipped dog silvertip and a 24/48 Rudy vey tgn 2 band finest. for a slightly exaggerated comparison, the WD is pillowy soft with no scritch and moderate backbone. the tgn knot is very high quality, but in comparison feels like shaving with a brick. albeit a brick with a...
