    From badger to boar

    The green omega is better IMHO than the Zenith. It has much more backbone, even the "scrubby" Zenith.

    Zenith Manchurian 2 Band Badger

    I have this brush on a similar handle (blue java style) and it is indeed excellent. I like it better than my manchurian Simpson, which is smaller and was more than twice the cost.

    Colonial General V1

    I have the Aluminum version and for me it is the best head design I have tried. I prefer lighter Aluminum razors, so I am all set unless Colonial offers the V2 in Aluminum. I even bought a second as a backup...

    Thoughts on the RazoRock Eco

    GameChanger .84 Safety Bar vs Merkur 39c vs Fatip Piccolo

    I have thd Fatip Grande, same head as the piccolo, and I find it a bit too aggressive. I gave the Fatip Gentile to a friend who is very happy with it, for me it was ineffective. Merkur heads are ok for beginners, I sold mine ages ago. Now the RazoRock Gamechanger 0.84 is in my opinion in a...

    Thoughts on the RazoRock Eco

    I think you were the only one that cared enough to contact about it. I was very surprised, not for the good, about the eco. RazoRock razors are usually on the mild and forgiving side. I don't mind aggressive razors and used to shave with straight razors for a while. I found the eco to be...

    RazoRock ECO First Look

    I agree with you about the Lupo, if doesn't glide very smoothly, and I think part of it is due to the finish. I tried it with different blades and gave up on it, too mild to be effective like the Baby smooth.

    Hawk owners, how about that eco?

    I have the Hawk, v1 and v2. It is a pretty good design, and it is a top tier razor for me, with a Schick ProLine blade (albeit in that tier, the Colonial General is my favorite). I am curious about the eco, anyone has both by any chance?

    Boar / badger mixed brushes

    I had a Semogue SOC LE 2012 mixed a while back that for some really odd reason I sold. It was pretty good, with an excellent handle. I felt at the time the knot was too big... go figure... Semogue since then re-released it, I got one and the knot is great. Really great. Great backbone and soft...

    Should a gentleman carry a handkerchief ?

    Of course a handkerchief. Wiping off gunpowder with a Kleenex is simply barbaric.
