    Anyone try Brickell?

    I recently got their sampler pack. The brushless shave cream is pretty good, and I don't say that lightly--I've never liked brushless creams before. It's got a great evergreen smell to it. I agree with you about the aftershave. It's almost a pine kind of scent with some sort of incense-type...

    Captain's Choice ?

    Thanks for the tip!

    Your most sophisticated smelling aftershave?

    Ditto, except without the geezer part. I get a lot of compliments when I splash on Tabac, even from my students (15-16 year-olds addicted to Axe body spray. Hm. Worded that way, doesn't sound like the most ringing endorsement.). I also managed to get my hands on some Crown Imperial AS and...

    Captain's Choice ?

    Same question here. I'm contemplating buying the co9t and the lime. Any suggestions for EDTs or colognes that would go well with them? Thanks!

    L'occitaine vetyver

    Vetyver lasts all day on me as well. Like the OP, I first encountered this scent while shopping with SWMBO. I tested it, then went about shopping for another few hours. At the end of our mall trip, it still smelled great and SWMBO declared it one of her favorite man-scents. I'm about ready...

    Al Raz's The Bomb shaving cream

    I got a sampler back when I first started wet shaving about 9 months ago. They were all fantastic, and Al actually took the time both to ask for and respond to my feedback. I'm just now finishing up the entire range of products I bought to kick-start my software collection, and I'll definitely...

    Deal & Done!

    Thanks very much! You did save me a couple of trips with that tip.

    Deal & Done!

    I feel you. I'm still hunting for my elusive "favorite splash". Pinaud Clubman is a strong favorite, but I haven't tried their Bay Rum yet. I may have to hunt down a Walgreens to see if I can pick some up at this ridiculously low price! Each brand of Bay Rum splash is a little different. At...

    Free Honing (if you can’t do it yourself)

    First use of Vie-Long Sardinero 13800 Horse Hair Brush

    Was the 13800 a limited run? I just searched for it a couple of places and came up empty. I've been kicking around the idea of trying a horsehair brush for a while now, and this thread made me willing to try that model.

    knife sharpening

    Honed: Thanks for posting that link. It made me think I might actually be able to sharpen my own kitchen knives if I get some stones and then get some stones. I've been kicking around the idea for a couple of months now because I feel a case of SRAD coming on and would want to hone my own...

    First attempt at Kimchi

    Shawn, I live not far from a large Korean grocery store called Lotte. I'd be happy to send you some if you can't find it out your way. PM me if interested. Someone also mentioned rice powder--definitely recommend. Dried shrimp--definitely recommend. One recipe I have also calls for grated...

    Some Favorite Steak Marinades?

    One of our all-time household favorites for very lean cuts is made up of equal parts bourbon and soy sauce with a little drizzle of olive oil whisked in. Perforate the steak with a fork on both sides, then give it about 1 hour per side in the soak for an avg thickness flank steak, a little...

    Gunter Wilhelm

    Would any of you be able to opine on Gunter Wilhelm brand kitchen knives? They're camped out at my Costco this week, and the prices are pretty darn low for the knives they're selling. The knives are hefty, look good, and fit my hands well. They claim to be designed in the USA, forged in...

    knife sharpening

    Can't help you with the DIY of it. My local butcher will sharpen knives for $4 each. (Not a grocery store--he's running an old fashioned, stand-alone, cut-to-order operation.) He put razor edges on a six year old set of inexpensive Analon knives for me and six months of heavy use later they are...

    Shaving Dream Analysis

    I could've sworn I read somewhere that teeth falling out had to do with feeling powerless or having anxiety about getting older. Primeval brain memory stuff (an animal with no teeth can't defend itself or loses its place in the pack). Other types of tooth dreams have other meanings, ranging...

    Shaving Dream Analysis

    I once dreamed that I ran out of the house late for work and ended up in front of my 1st period class with a face-full of lather, a freshly stropped straight razor, and no clothing. I think that's more one of those "naked at work in a bad way" dreams rather than a shaving dream, though. If you...
