    Kent BK4 shorter loft equivalent?

    Hello gents, What would be the equivalent of a Kent BK4, but with a shorter loft? I mean something not so densely packed, somewhat floppy you might say, but very soft and with great flow-through. Regards, Cosmin.

    Does anybody know the measurements for the Simpson Tulip 1 brush? I guess it doesn't matter if it's pre or post Vulfix. I have asked a couple of vendors, but no-one answered until now. Thank you to all who might help.

    Razor-blade combo

    Hi gents, Up until now, I thought once I find my "holy blade", I would be able to use it in any of my razors. The Red Personnas worked best both in my HD and my Mergress. However, in my new acquired Slant they don't seem to work; they don't cut it (no pun intended). After going through one...

    Brush that likes to "give away" the lather

    Hello, I am looking for a brush that likes to "give away" the lather. I have a Muehle silvertip, and while it is a wonderful brush in many aspects, it tends to hold on to the lather, especially on the 2nd or 3rd passes. I mean the lather gathers in the area around the tip of the handle (or...

    First soap experience

    I just wanted to share my first shaving soap experience. For the last 6-7 months (when I began wet shaving) I have used only creams, as I had a (irrational) fear of soaps. I thought they were too hard to lather, too drying for the face, etc. However, I took the plunge one day and order one...

    My first HD shave

    Well, I have been wet-shaving for nearly 3 weeks now (previously electric) with a Wilkinson plastic DE, a Wilkinson blade, some cheap brush (synthetic I think) and some cheaper local shaving cream. The shaves were enjoyable, however very different one from another, although I maintained the...
