    If you had to choose only one.

    As much as I love my fancy creams and soaps, I'd choose Arko! Always get a great lather. I can even shave with just rubbing it on my wet face w/o lathering it up with a brush. Cheap, lasta a long itme, and it smells clean. Mikes and Stirling would come in a close second.

    Soaps vs Creams

    Funny, I do the opposite. I keep my soap in a small container with a tight fitting screw-on lid and it worked great for travel. Just rinse it off when done and throw it in the dop kit.

    Letting Your Brush Dry Between Uses

    I do this too. Never had an issue. Climate here is dryish and we keep the heat turned up in the winter.

    First Open Comb suggestions?

    My first open comb is the Ikon Deluxe Open Comb. It does cost more than some of the other options, but it's a great razor. What's your price range? Are you looking for something more aggressive or just open-comb? Do you care about it being stainless steel?

    Small Crack inside Pipe Bowl

    I recently bought a used briar pipe off of the 'bay. It smelled horrible, so I cleaned it out using the salt-treatment twice and ran about 20 pipe cleaners soaked in alcohol through the shank. Unfortunately now that it is clean, I noticed that there is a small split/crack going from the...

    Boar vs. Badger

    Stench?! I love the smell of a new badger brush :001_wub: I love my badger brushes; but I, too, find myself using boar more for the hard soaps. I save my fancy badgers for my fancy creams :biggrin1:

    First shave, blade problems

    You might shake the razor more vigorously in the water when you're rinsing it. I've notice that happens to me now and then when I'm shaving more than a couple day's growth with the EJ 89...

    Travel brush recommendations

    I bought an Omega #50014 Boar Travel Brush. It's a good brush in a black plastic handle/cover. It works really well with the soaps I have. I haven't tried it with a cream, but I'm sure it would be fine. There are a few threads on it if you search on google. It's fairly cheap at 9.99 from a few...

    Feb 20th 2014 - International Pipe Smoking Day

    As a long time dark cigar smoker, any recommendations for a pipe tobacco blend? I was thinking of something English-y w/ a bit of cavendish and as little perique as possible (read too many negative reviews about it). I'd rather not go for an aromatic... this looks enticing...
