    Does anyone else like the Cobra more than the Mongoose?

    I had a Cobra a while back and enjoyed using it. In a fit of selling madness, I sold it. I then got on the list for the Mongoose and couldn't wait for it to come. I kept hearing about how the Mongoose is so much better than the Cobra. Mine landed and I loaded her up. I found the shave to be...

    SE shaving advice

    I've been DE shaving for a couple of years now. I love my NEW, R41, Ikon slant, etc. Anyway, I just picked up a 1912 and am going to shave with it tomorrow. Are there any differences that I should be aware of when shaving with an SE rather than a DE? Many thanks!

    Slant razors. anything other than merkur?

    Are there any slant bar razors being produced other than the merkurs? The Ikon has been out of stock for a while and only 150 of the Razorock were made. Anything else out there? If not, how good is the Merkur?

    I just purchased a Muhle HJM synthetic in the emporium. Am I in for a treat? This will be my first synthetic. I've heard good things about Muhle synthetics. How do the fibers in this one compare to the more expensive Muhle synthetics? Anything you could tell me would be great.
