    leaving the soap on

    Then again, most guys didn't spend $$$ on brushes back then, either. I suspect the minority with something like a Simpson's Chubby would probably have been fussier than the guys with a cheapo boar they could just replace at the drug store if it wore out.

    Opinions about Pilot Vanishing Point?

    That's the real "love it or hate it" thing about the VP...some people just can't get past the position of the clip. Be careful about slipping into FPAD, though, or you might end up like me with multiple VPs, plus a Decimo and a Fermo for good measure. :lol:

    Lathering with a Chubby 1 Super

    I remember having a similar experience with my special edition Eagle G3 in Best back in the day (which was rumored to use Chubby 1 knots, and was indeed extremely dense). Had a hell of a time getting the thing to lather, but once I figured it out, holy bleep did it lather. That kind of density...

    Stockouts, panic buying, and how you cook...

    That seems to be a common theme of a lot of famines, especially in 19th Century Europe...it's not that there was no food, just no cheap food. Having plenty of, say, meat around doesn't do you much good if you can only afford potatoes.

    Stockouts, panic buying, and how you cook...

    Passover shopping has been a real doozy this year. Passover is a PITA even under normal circumstances, since you basically have to completely replace everything you want to eat for a week with Passover-certified versions (that are usually lower quality and often sold in sizes way bigger than one...

    Have you tried any new soaps lately?

    Tried my first Stirling soap last night -- Unscented with Beeswax -- and I was duly impressed. I can see why people have been raving about Stirling for so long. Pity Stirling doesn't offer the beeswax formulation with scents...I can't really do lanolin anymore, despite my previous love for MWF...

    Is a BBS shave every day okay?

    People should do what's good for their face. Some people might be able to tolerate a BBS shave every day. Some people aren't able to tolerate daily shaving at all. A lot of people are in the middle, able to get a daily comfortable DFS and step up to BBS for special occasions. Wetshaving is all...

    Opinions about Pilot Vanishing Point?

    Capless is just the Japanese name for the VP. So if it's packaged for American market, it'll say Vanishing Point, but if it's for the Japanese market, it'll say Capless. Pilots tend to be less expensive in Japan (sometimes by a lot), so importing Japanese models isn't an uncommon way for people...

    Sterling Soap Woes (perhaps it's me)—Suggest Alternatives

    If OP is curious enough whether lanolin's the culprit, you can buy pure lanolin cream. It's usually used by nursing mothers, and you can get it at most drug stores (and sites like Amazon, Target, CVS, &c if going to B&M stores isn't your thing at the moment). It would probably be about $10-15...

    Custom Irish Shave Brush

    Want to dive in to higher end badger

    Depends on what you're looking for. If you're used to boars, you probably don't mind a bit of scrub and backbone, so my suggestion would be a Simpson Colonel X2L in Best. It's not crazy expensive ($65, which is about as reasonable as high-end badgers get), it's fairly dense without being...

    GIANT Brushes?

    I got my girlfriend a big 30mm Whipped Dog synthetic, but the biggest of my own brushes is probably a Chubby 2, so about 27mm, and that's kind of huge for me. Normally, I find even 24mm brushes a bit too big and unwieldy, so my preferred size is 22mm, at least for badgers. (24mm boars seem less...
