    Wondering about adding an ink to my inventory. Suggestions?

    Big fan of Toffee Brown here. One of my Parker 51s is loaded with it presently. Even bigger fan of Diamine Ancient Copper, though it may not be as truly brown as some of the others. Get some in a wet broad nib and see the beautiful silver sheen. Good luck!

    Recommend Me a Myrsol Menthol Aftershave

    I have Don Miguel 1919. The amount of menthol is similar to Fine, or cooling without being a slap in the face. The scent is a pretty bang-on jasmine green tea. I love jasmine green tea, but it feels just a little bit cloying in summer. Should be more enjoyable in the other seasons. I have used...

    palmolive shave sticks

    Performance is excellent, scent reminds me of something that keeps Mosquitoes away. Loads of rich lather with minimal effort. Surprised it's not talked about more.

    How to ship aftershaves from US to Australia?

    Also SpeedyPC how much were the fines? Would be good to know so I can decide if it's worth the risk in future.

    How to ship aftershaves from US to Australia?

    I recently got a bottle of Myrsol from Portugal to Australia. The box was simply marked 'Shaving gear' or similar, without going into detail. Arrived unmolested with no fine from customs or anything of the sort. Good luck!

    Glycerin soaps as preshaves? Does it help?

    I like the black La Toja glycerine soap. I don't know if it's explicitly designed as a preshave but it works for me.

    Opinions on Taylor of Old Bond Street Shaving Cream - Eton College

    I didnt like the scent of my Eton College sample, but I appear to be in the minority. Performance was TOBS standard.

    First Pen

    Jinhao makes good first pens. They are heavier than most though so if you plan to write for long stretches you may find your hand or wrist getting fatigued. You may consider dropping a few $ on ebay for a Pelikan or Schmidt converter as an upgrade to the Jinhao ones. Most of the basic or...

    Semogue believers? Boar brush opinions.

    I have two shaves on my new 1250 and so far the lather it produces is abysmal. I'm hoping it's some combination of breaking in and adjusting from badger and synthetic techniques. Judgement reserved for a future date.
