    Do I overload the brush?

    This is how I always go about making lather, but do y'all think I may overload the brush? This is about a 50 second load of MWF: Been doing it that way for years now, always get what I consider to be a good shave.

    Brush Soaking

    Just curious, how many of you soak your brushes? I just leave it in the sink full of hot water while I shower. Then when I get out, I give it a squeeze and it's on to the puck for a lather load, and then face lathering. Been doing it this way for about four years, never had a shedding...

    Italian Flloid Blue, and why I love B&B

    So I picked up some of the discontinued Floid Blue aftershave a couple of weeks ago and used it for the first time yesterday. Wow, what a nice finish. This stuff has a generous amount of glycerin, and it the only alcohol splash type aftershave that I can use and not follow with a balm. It's...

    Simpson Commodore X3

    So I ended up pulling the trigger on one of these this week. Was considering the Keyhole, but read somewhere that these knots are not as dense as the typical Simpson's brush. Anyone have any experience with this one? Not too much chatter regarding it out there.

    Depth of the Obsession

    Just for fun, I thought we could compile a list of questions to assist in the measurement of members obsession with the hobby. Sort of like what I assume they ask at NA or some such other support group, or 12 step program. Here are a couple to start out with: Do you ever hide shaving...

    Bakelite Handles

    Those of you that saw that C-Mon restore I did, here. As I was buffing the handle, I noticed a very distinct chemical odor, one that I have not gotten from other brushes I have restored. This handle also "felt" different as I was taking the knot out. It had more give than typical handles such...

    Badger is better than boar

    There seems to be much hype about boar brushes being better than badger as of late around here. I say, it's called "Badger and Blade" for a reason. I have a two fold purpose for this thread. First, I think new DE shavers are done a dis-service when this trend occurs. Money spent on boars is...

    No case 120 dollars.

    Truth in advertising

    This has to be one of the most accurate BIN listings I have seen on the bay: "Condition: used, the blade have chippy damages - jagged." http://www.ebay.com/itm/WWII-WW2-GERMAN-NAVY-MARINE-CARL-RADER-STRAIGHT-RAZOR-/360229003358?pt=LH_DefaultDomain_0&hash=item53df52605e Ummm, really, ya don't...

    Pinaud Lime Sec

    Okay, so I know some people think this is a little sweet and cloying, but in the summer, I kinda dig it! Anybody else have a thing for the Pinaud Lime sec? To me it has a definite lime scent on top of a clean, almost soaplike base, so not really all that sweet, but fresh on a hot Texas day.

    Merkur Bakelite razors

    I was over at a clipper and barber store in Fort Worth about two weeks ago, and they had several of the Merkur Bakelite razors for $25.00. Good price? Anyone interested in me grabbing what they have left and shipping them around? I think they had about 6 in stock.
