    WTB: Declaration Grooming Dirtyver A/S

    Just dropped my bottle on the bathroom floor. My bathroom smells great but I’m bummed as it’s no longer listed on the DG website. If you have a bottle you’d like to get rid of let me know. Thanks!

    Chatillon Lux Lavender A/S & Cologne

    I have been on a lavender kick lately. Agua Lavanda Puig, Fine Lavender, Lisa's Lavender A/S balm and the latest CL Lavender A/S and cologne. I find the CL to last all day and has that great post shave feeling. Whatever is in the CL A/S my skin likes it. The best is to start with Lisa's...

    What next?

    I have a Blackland Sabre GEM and an Asylum RX. I am trying to hold off on the next purchase but...... what's the point? I read a lot of ATT mentions in the SE forum. Is that the next razor to try?

    The progression of my disease - there is no cure nor is one wanted!

    I think I first became aware of wet shaving from the Art of Manliness website about a year ago. A google search or two and I discovered B&B. I would look around B&B and think "that looks interesting but wet shaving seems like a pain to me, what's the point?" After a couple of weeks of lurking I...

    I thought my RAD was over and then I bought a Blackland Sabre razor!

    I have been wet shaving just about a year. For the first couple of months I held strong with my tub of TOBS sandalwood, cheap badger brush and Viking razor. Then I found B&B and SAD quickly set in. DE RAD soon followed followed by BAD. I had settled down on all with the occasional soap and AS...

    Paladin brushes are simply wonderful

    I have had the fortune to pickup 2 Paladin brushes with the CSLD4 knot and they are easily the best in my den. Soft, very dense and with enough backbone to lathe up hard soap pucks with no worry. I enjoy all my other brushes but the Paladins standout with their ability to build, create and hold...

    2 months in and I am really getting it figured out

    I don't recall how I ended up on B&B and discovering the world of wet shaving. I remember my first reaction was "there are people who post pictures of brushes with shaving cream on them? What kind of world have I wandered into?" A few weeks of lurking and I took the plunge and bought a Viking...

    Fluted razor handle?

    I saw a picture on the forum somewhere that looked like a Timeless razor with a scalloped cap and heavy flute handle. The handle matched the cap perfectly. I cannot find this picture now. Anybody have knowledge or recommendations on where to look for a fluted razor handle? Thanks!

    Great shave with TOBS Lavender today

    I have been wet shaving just over 6 weeks. My first cream/soap was TOBS sandalwood. I got bit by the SAD and in a little over a month I have about 20 soaps and a few creams in the mix. Today I thought I would try the TOBS lavender I have. Wow! Lathered up so quick and easy with my Maggards...

    How much soap is too much soap?

    20, 50, enough for the next 6 generations after you to use? If my soap acquirement disease turns into razor acquirement disease I will go bankrupt within 6 months.

    4 weeks in

    Good morning, As the title says I am about 4 weeks into my wet shaving journey. I can't quite remember how I arrived here other than I think I read that wet shaving was cheaper than cartridges. Well, that has proven not to be true. I started out with the standard Amazon best seller Viking...
