    Wee Scot vs Savile row 3118

    So, got my package from QED today......As always the best of the best from them. Hooked me up with a few free samples to go with my SR3118, GeoT Lime, and TOBS. As you may or may not know the Wee is one of my favs for a long time now. Ive always wondered about the 3118 though, and without a good...

    Lathering palmolive

    So I broke my Palmolive out this morning, after reading how great it was. Sooo, my question is, how long does one have to swirl the bowl of soap before he can get enough lather for 2 passes? My god, I swirled, and swirled and swirled, with my omega pro boar, which absolutely destroys any other...

    Feather AS-D1 2 weeks so far.not impressed yet.

    What a disappointment so far. I got this very expensive razor almost 2 weeks ago now. I have been trying everything to get a decent shave with this puppy. I switched back to my R41 (2010) this morning and, I must say it was miles ahead of the Feather, and this R41 is considered one of, if not...
