    Review by 'JoWolf' on item 'Zenith Chubby Scrubby Boar B27 - 28mm x 55mm'

    Zenith Chubby Scrubby Boar B27 - 28mm x 55mm This brush is fully broken in. The knot is very full and dense. Of my four boar hair brushes this hair is the finest or thinnest. Damp and drying knot measured at handle lip 30mm. The brush does not have a prominent bloom and for its size the...

    Mike when you do try Haslinger this rubber maid storage lid fits the soap perfect and very comfortable in the hand.

    I have always had that smooth as oiled glass glide with the Voskhod. I’m started to think I have stayed with the blade as long as have more for smoothness as opposed to sharpness. I like the blade and will always have them around. Especially since I just picked up another hundred. Mike do you...

    Mike I guess I’m feeling that my technique may be approaching a level where I can make any blade work well. The reason I think that.The Voskhod just seems to need more buffing to get the shave I want. I’m going to use that same Voskhod again flipped. It it feels the same on the second shave. The...

    New poll: What is your favorite kind of shave brush?

    A Two Band, a Silvertip, three boars and a horse. That is my present rotation. I have a white tipped two band coming and it will replace one of the boars in the rotation. I do favour badger hair a little more than boar. The horse is very different than boar and badger also an excellent brush.

    Is it ok to keep the blade inside your DE after shaving?

    I remove the blade after every shave thoroughly rinse and let dry. I wash and polish the razor with a clean dry towel. The dry blade is flipped and put back into the razor, aligned properly and tightened down ready for use. Every filth or six time the threads get lubricated with Molykote 111...

    I have a tuck of Derby Premium. Mike I can only try two blades a month on my present schedule. I will slowly and methodically go through the blades I have on hand which will take me into the new year. You definitely zeroed me in on a few. Although I tried most of them, but none in the Grande. I...

    I’m going to try the Feather first and if I can’t get a smooth shave with them. I’ll put my Feather obsession to rest. I am trying new brushes and soaps for three shaves in a rotation. If everything is copacetic after two shaves and totally dialed in. I will try a new blade in on the third...

    Thanks Mike. I got these on hand. I’ll see if I can find something as smooth as the Voskhod but a little more efficient. What did you think of the Nacet? I had the same experience with the Nacet as the Feather, harsh. I haven’t tried any blades in a few months. Voskhod is the only blade I’ve...

    This last shave I had there was a considerable difference in blade feel. Although both soap and pre shave were first time use. I thought it was the glycerin pre shave more than the Haslinger soap. I got a lot more blade feel than I’ve been used to. In a real nice way. My last purchase I got a...
