    Berceuse Perfum (Barrister & Mann)

    I was just listening to the Lather Talk podcast, which if you haven't listened to it yet is pretty decent. They had Will Carius on of Barrister & Mann and he was talking about a new company he started, Berceuse Parfum. It was interesting to hear him describe his philosophy behind the company...

    Ravaged by a Schone (Fatip)

    Well, I've been using a Merkur 34c, Game Changer .64, GEM Jr and Phoenix Bakelite Slant now for the last year. The Merkur and Game Changer do a pretty darn good job, but I struggle to really get BBS with them. I recently pulled out a $6 Baili, which felt way more aggressive than either razor...

    Opinions on Parfum de Marly

    This brand has been on my list to try for the last few months. I'm a big fan of Creed and Tom Ford and have heard great things about many of the fragrances from Parfum de Marly. I have three 10oz samples consisting of Layton, Pegasus and Percival. I'd love to hear your thoughts if you have...

    My first real grinder

    Well, I just wanted to share the fact that I took delivery yesterday of my first real grinder. Thanks to the insight from the many coffee fans here, I decided to step into the world of Baratza with an Encore. Here's a picture of the new grinder after it had been washed and dried, and ready to...

    New brush by Rick Montalvo

    Just received my first artisan made brush. While biding my time on the wait list for a Wolf Whiskers custom brush, I noticed on his store this beautiful blue brush made by his father-in-law Rick Montalvo. Peter supplies the handle material and sets the knots, but Rick does everything else...

    Repurposed Case

    Converted this case, which originated as one of those gift sets you receive during the holidays, but know you'll never use. I decided it would be the perfect razor storage case. I through out the original contents and ordered some foam and cut everything to shape. I think it turned out pretty...

    Simpson's Chubby 2

    Compared to today's many artisan / custom brush makers, for the price is the Chubby 2 still a rock solid performer? I'm looking at purchasing my first high-end brush/knot and would love your opinions.

    Inspired to Kamisori!

    Folks, I know this might be a stretch but here goes... Yes, I know the word kamisori isn't a verb, but I'm inspired. I'd love to try my hand at making a kamisori, but really don't want to spend the money to buy one just to get some measurements. I googled, but couldn't find any specific...

    My Christmas gift for my Wife this year was a trip to NYC to hit up some amazing restaurants as well as a few immersive theater shows she's looking forward to. Since my new infatuation with wet shaving has developed, I was wondering what shops you recommend checking out for wet shaving gear in...

    4th DE Shave...Thanks!

    Quick back story, I've been using a cartridge razor for 20 of my 35 years. Most recently I've been using Harry's products, but came across the following razor The Plow as part of a package deal. Needless to say, since it was deeply discounted I went for it. The first few shaves were rough on...
