    DR Harris Sandalwood

    I had some shocking experiences in the past ordering aftershaves blindly. Ended up with bottles smelling like a drunk granny’s denture box. The more I read about DR Harris Sandalwood the more it intrigues me. Would love to hear your thoughts if you are or have been using this aftershave...

    How many days of growth for the most comfortable shave?

    Hello gentlemen! *sensitive skin No matter what I do, I can’t manage to get a comfortable shave after one or two days of growth. Everything goes wrong... razor burns, microscopic nicks, redness, bla bla, the full menu... On the contrary, the 3rd day is the total opposite; I always get an...

    Is Wolfman still a one-man-job razor?

    I noticed that it became quite an easy process to subscribe for a Wolfman razor, the orders seem to be confirmed a couple of months later. Knowing myself how difficult it used to be to buy a Wolfman and taking into account the huge demand out there, I’m wondering if it’s still only James who is...

    Adjustable razor - is it worth it?

    Hello gents! I’m in a bit of a dilemma here, hopefully your advice will bring some light. [emoji4] It’s been a while I’m following different topics about adjustable razors. Especially the Rex Ambassador... which I find intriguing, beautiful and dangerously tempting.. I’ve always loved the...

    Your favourite Bay Rum Aftershave

    Hello gents, I am using the Barberry Coast Bay Rum splash which I thought it has the smell of LOVE! I liked it so much more than any other Bay Rum aftershave I tried (that was only LPL.. lol) Half of the bottle is now gone and the smell is not at all the same. The beautiful fragrance it...

    Disappointing evening

    Hello gents, As per usual, a pint of Guinness has been poured while I lined up the setup for the night. I love this moment. Tonight we had: - MWF rebranded; - Chubby 2 best; - L&W sandalwood balm; - Barberry Coast Bay Rum splash; - Feather Artist Club SS; - ProGuard blade. Fantastic soap...

    Looking for a boar brush..

    Hello gents, I own an Omega Pro 10049 which performs brilliantly, however I believe it's a wee bit big for face lathering. And the handle looks a bit cheap as well... I'd like to upgrade to a tad bit smaller boar brush, with a nice backbone, not too stiff though (or scratchy). I've been...

    Barberry Coast Bay Rum aftershave splash

    Some would say it smells exotic. Others fresh, manly, Caribbean, fruity, sun, beach, rainbow, cigars, rum, etc. The first thing that came to my mind was « it smells like Christmas! » This is the kind of smell I always believed to be too sweet for my taste. I thought I hate it, then I thought...

    Suribachi scuttle

    Happy Days! I’ve ordered a Suribachi scuttle from Steve Woodhead’s pottery shop. I know it’s not a fundamental shaving item but hey, we only have one life! :001_smile I’ve been reading that the Suribachi texture may damage the brush as it seems to be a bit abrasive. Have you experienced any...

    What am I doing wrong?

    Hey guys, I’ve started wet shaving about 8 months ago. Bought myself quality gear, great shaving products, took my time to gather knowledge, carefully practiced my skills... to cut a long story short, the transition went great. As great as after a couple of months, the shaving necessity became...
