    X-Strokes, Circles, Half Strokes???

    Do circles, but at least try to clean up with X-strokes. I understand what you mean about it being hard on the shoulder, so if you can't, then don't bother - it's not critical. You should also try the back-forward strokes (some call this Japanese strokes). It all works fine, just watch the...

    Creed Virgin Island Water

    VIW is a fresh lime with a strong, sweet coconut base and a subtle vanilla/rum throughout. Pretty awesome blend, works really well for both men and women. I'm not a huge fan of the dry down, but opening and heart are well worth it. I wouldn't be without it, although it's my wife who uses it most...

    Can't get good lather. Need Help.

    Yes sir, I have seen wonderful SOC boars and have many times debated buying 2 or 3 more, hoping that at least one will be great. Never done it though.. I am too deep into the badger hole now. Lol Sent from my CLT-L29 using Tapatalk

    Can't get good lather. Need Help.

    For what it's worth, my SOC boar was a horrible brush that would eat lather and I have never once got good enough lather from it... Decent, yes. Good? Absolutely not. I threw it away. After watching your video, I'd suggest you do the same. This is not to say they are all bad, but yours is, mine...

    Ask your father..

    Good question. I was born in '81 and didn't really get to see him shave much. Right up until '95 I didn't care about shaving at all, mostly thanks to him. I distinctly remember him always telling me to not try shaving for as long as possible, because it's such a boring activity, and a waste of...

    BBW as a one-hone?

    I've managed to get decent, serviceable edges off of the BBW in the past, but nothing that blew me away. I am not talking about playing in the mud to set the bevel, but more like mild mid-range slurry, finished on water. The stone is painfully slow.. I can only assume that some people used a lot...

    BBW as a one-hone?

    Peel for mid-range, skin-on for finishing would be my bet. Sent from my CLT-L29 using Tapatalk

    Wolfman - Brushed Basic/Matte Finish Pics

    Darwin is a great handle. Lighter than most stainless, it's slim and elegant and the curves provide a good grip. Thoroughly enjoy that one! Sent from my CLT-L29 using Tapatalk

    Box for my Hoshitombo 8000 long tail

    I'm looking to make a box for my HT8000. Does anyone here have the original box, and is willing to show me some photos please? I don't want to replicate it exactly, but would like to construct it in a similar fashion. Thanks gents. Sent from my CLT-L29 using Tapatalk

    What country makes or made the best straight razors.

    Ha! I have that same razor, just needing some restoration work. Gotta love a nice Kikuboshi. Sent from my CLT-L29 using Tapatalk

    What country makes or made the best straight razors.

    I'm personally thankful for that today. If they were celluloid, a lot of them would be in pretty bad shape, or nearing the end of life. Sent from my CLT-L29 using Tapatalk

    How to repair water staining on eel leather

    Was it just clean water? You say "stain", but if the water was clean, then this is just a color bleed, likely as a result of the leather being veg tanned. Sent from my CLT-L29 using Tapatalk

    Maggard SHD v Shavemac v TurnNShave v Paladin v Thater

    One remark - the reason I mention Oumo, although you didnt ask, is because Maggard and Oumo are likely the same knots, as stated before. Not 100% sure, but all evidence I've seen so far points to that. Also.. Many of these SHD knots are coming from Oumo, through small makers/turners nowadays. I...

    If you had to pick only one badger brush!

    "The one" would be one of these two, it doesn't really matter which, honestly. This is way above your quoted price point though, but then again, these brushes are packed with probably twice as much bristle, so we'll worth it. Sent from my CLT-L29 using Tapatalk
