    ATT Calypso Se

    I have ATT r1 de razor and get an extremely comfortable and close shave with it. I am looking at the rest of ATT range and one which gives just as comfortable shave but a different experience. Ì have been looking at the aluminium SE razor . Any experiences or comparison to their de razors ? I...

    I'm liking my bigger badger brushes

    I love the SV brush and chubby 3. Both similar size but CH3 I a bit denser. Both are soft and I love the face lather they give. I find it strange that some find large brushes too big and difficult to hold. I'm an average face and hands, and absolutely not a problem.

    Face just doesn’t stay hydrated

    Sounds like not loading enough soap, and not enoughv water. I keep face lathering until i feel the lather turning into a nice silky cream. What soap ?

    I bought Arko stick but didn't care for the scent. I pressed it into a container, and the two pucks of hasslinger. There got a bit mixed in the process. The Arko scent vanished and the result is excellent!

    ATT owners please!

    I guess I don't need another razor head as suggested in my initial post, as the r1 gives me such good shaves since i started using it regularly, getting the angle right. I onlydid this after taking it on hoilday for 2 weeks and using nothing else! It gives really close and superbly comfortable...

    ATT owners please!

    Yes, a little learning, at first, I considered it gave a hit or miss shave in terms of efficiency, but learned you need to get the angle right. Now my ears tell me if it is not cutting my stubble. !

    ATT owners please!

    I'd like to hear from those who own more than one ATT razor head. I have the r1 plate and get really comfortable, close shaves , 2 to 3 passes. Although I don't need them! I hanker after another head, m1, h1, or even their se range. To those who have them, do the other heads give the same...

    Hawkins and Brimble cream

    I saw this cream in my local Superdrug for £7, £11 on some sites ,, so took a chance on 2 tubs. The tins are metal with 100g of very soft cream. Best to scoop a bit in the lid to load the brush as I suspect any water from a damp brush would shorten the life . I've done 2 shaves. The cream has a...

    I need a container for Haslinger pucks

    I found that after a few shaves, the pucks were pliable enough to mould into a decent size container. 2 are ideal as the pucks are small..........but long lasting.

    Arko - Stinks!!!

    If ,like me, you've been seduced into a stick of Arko, but hate the scent, do this. Grate or press it into the bottom of an empty container. Then add another layer or two of a soap you like, perhaps a puck that's nearly finished. I used two pucks of Hasl8nger. The Arko scent almost vanishes...

    Excess Lather

    Those who have loads of lather left, probably have soft water. Just load for less time. I've hard water and even with chubby 3, have enough for 2 or 3 passes. I then squeeze the brush and use this on my face, using fingers to feel what stubble is left. No lather left.

    Do handles make a difference?

    I've 2 razors, ATT r1 with bamhoo handle, Rocca with black handle. Don't know why, but decided to swap handles. Today, I used the wonderful ATT . Usual smooth comfortable shave, however, it seemed to be abetter shave. There was more audible feedback which certainly helped to highlight any bits...

    Face Lather, or Bowl?

    I've tried bowl from time to time using a Fine Accoutrements bowl. However, I find it takes ages compared with face lathering. I love the feel of lathering on my face, and know that when it feels silky smooth and velvety, it is ready and will give me a really good shave. The bowl is used to...

    OMG! Strong and Scottish!

    The puck of my hard soap hardly seems to go down, and this using a chubby 3. Has anyone used the soap continuously. I'd say it's as long lived as the legendary MdC. The pastes,,like most creams and soft soaps seemed to last quite a bit less.

    OMG! Strong and Scottish!

    Meant to say, the scents are described as 'flavours in some cases. They do taste nice if you ever get any in your mouth when lathering!

    OMG! Strong and Scottish!

    English shaving company ships to USA for a modest fee. I love these soaps and have used Strong and Scottish this week. Yes, more like a peat fire than whiskey. These pucks last for ever! I face lather and this method of lathering never fails to make a lovely, creamy lather. Badger brush...

    All the chubbies! Couldnt decided so I got all three

    I've the chubby3 but find it makes the right amount of lather. Try loading for less time.. So you bought some expensive brushes but can't afford the soap for them! HA!!!

    Soap from accompanying tin to Shave Bowl?

    I think taking a small piece of hard soap and try to lather would be difficult. SV suggest blooming the soap. Here's what works fantastic for me with any hard soap, badger brush. Soak the brush for a few minutes and cover the soap with a thin layer of water. Squeeze the brush quite hard then...
