    Esbjerg Grapefruit

    I've seen the occasional review of"Esbjerg"creams, but never got around to trying one until a friend sent me some. I've shaved with it a few times now, and I'm seriously impressed with just about every aspect of it. Great scent, performance, and post shave. Anyone else use and enjoy Esbjerg?

    Brushless or full lather?

    I was looking through the stash of creams and soaps today and realized that I've got a few that are brushless which have hardly ever been used. I don't know about you all but there is something about building a lather that is part of the enjoyment of a shave for me, and I experience a childlike...

    WSP Shaving Cream

    I just found out recently that WSP is coming out with shaving creams. Their Formula T line of soap has been in my top 5 since I first cracked a tin of Gaelic Tweed, and I have high hopes for the creams. I was fortunate enough to check my email a few minutes after receiving the June newsletter...

    What's your snurdle size?

    I noticed the other day that I'd begun skimping on the amount of product I load onto my brush, be it cream, soap, or that increasingly popular amalgamation, the croap. I'm not sure why this is, since I have enough creams and soaps to last me years even if I used a push broom to lather them. Once...

    You read correctly folks. Eschewing the usual us/them stereotype of soaps and creams, @cvargo, the Steward in the Soap forum is adding a week of creams to June theme month. If you've never joined in on a Theme week it's a fun way to rotate through some of the possibly enormous stockpile of...

    New Stew

    Hello all! My name is Eric, and I have the honor of being your new Steward for Shaving Creams. I began wet shaving in the traditional way a little over a year ago, and have since fallen down so many rabbit holes that I could make my own whack-a-mole(whack-a-rabbit?) machine. If you have any...

    FS: C.V Heljestrand MkNo4/Genco/Shave Revolution brush

    Hi all, I'm doing a first culling of the den and moving along some gear that hasn't seen any use in some time. The CVH just doesn't get any love since I got another of the same brand that I prefer, and it's too good of a razor to stash in a drawer when someone could be getting some use out of...

    My first attempt...

    At a Chubby style handle. I've never actually seen one outside of a picture, but have always liked the look, and I tried for the middle-of-the-road Chubby 2 with an Elite Razors 26mm Manchurian White knot set at 52mm. My BIL makes butcher block with inlays and uses a few different exotic woods...

    Question about lapping on my first Jnat

    I recently purchased this inexpensive Jnat from chef knives to go, and while I was lapping it with some 400 wet/dry on a marble tile, a spot very close to the center of the stone started flaking off. You can see it as the white area near the center and, while it is not very deep it is extremely...
