    Great blade - just be prepared to concentrate! Only reason I don't shave with them every day is the price.

    Review by '' on item 'Kent/Mitchell's Wool Fat (MWF)'

    I have the MWF version. Really like the soap but the smells not great (not too bad though either). Lathering is hard at first until you get the hang of it. The bowl is expensive (but is very nice) and the puck was resonably priced. Would recommend.

    Review by '' on item 'Palmolive soap stick'

    Poor scent - smells cheap but doesn't linger. Quite hard to get the hang of it but I found that with all shave sticks. Price fantastic!!

    Review by '' on item 'Body Shop Maca Root Shave Cream'

    Good all round product. I like the smell and the fact that it is not overpowering. Works well and like the packaging. My only problem with it is the price. I paid £5 for one of the 125ml tubes which I though was a bit on the steep side.

    Review by '' on item 'Merkur HD'

    Simple no frills razor that does what it is designed to do. Would recommend to anyone especially someone who got into wetshaving for the money saving factor. Could not really rate more highly!

    1st strop - Filly

    Really like the filly - has been a great first strop! One quick question about it (sorry for butting into the thread) is that the Crox side is quite rough - can't this damage the edge when stroping? I've just sanded out all of the nicks on the main untreated side, and it sems a bit strange to be...

    Bare minimal set up - Spydercos?

    Thanks a lot for all the information. Not too keep on gettting a barbers hone as I would not now where to start. Still think the Spyderco UF would be a easy way of getting into honing even on a minimal set up. SliceofLife mentioned a coticule and while I'm tempted I've heard they are quite hard...

    First Pass with Straight closer than DE?

    Have been shaving with a straight for about 3 weeks now and am really getting the hang of this. I shaved with a DE first for about a year and think I have noticed that a single FIRST WTG pass with a straight will take off more hair and is therefore closer than the corressponding FIRST pass of a...
