Hello, I received the Fine American Blend Aftershave ( new shape bottle) I am not liking it. I read many threads saying it smells like Barbasol shave cream, to my nose it's not even close. So I'm getting rid of it.
Located in Ontario, CANADA, $20.
I no longer have to hear my wife say......"you bought it and you never use it", until now.
I will be conducting a microscope blade examination on, never used, on the following blades
Permasharp -on order
I remember nick shaves did something like this...
It is to be delivered on tuesday dec 4th by end of day. I searched blade gaps of de razors and was surprised to see (if this is indeed accurate):
the Muhle/EJ =89 @ 0.76 mm
gillette fat tech @0.67
gillette super speed no notch -- no info available
gillette super speed 1954--no info...
I purchased both the mentholated and non scented pre shave bar soaps. The results were absolutely impressive, applied and rinsed, then applied and face lathered right over with tabac soap, noticed a difference right away with my gillette 64 ss razor and gsb blade( 2nd use). this preshave soap...
the soap loaded up very nicely and quickly, post shave feels great, I was instantly in love with the scent, I do not have the aftershave so i used razo rorck tuscan oud.
Should i get the aftershave?
great first time shave with this soap, definitely a keeper
picked one up from ebay for 18 $ shipping +2.5 shipping,
man ,,,i got the most incredible shave,, i used a GSB that had 2 shaves on it. I used old spice shaving cream, the 1950 ss just glides ,,,this beats my r89, fat tech, 64 slim and 66 ss, by a long shot,,, gonna buy another one.
you can change the head by unscrewing them, i currently have the STF horn kosmo and have been itching to trying real badger.
anyone have experience with them?
Yesterday's shave,,,, fyi i am of italian heritage it annoys me to give up on proraso green,,, loaded it like I hate it, got a nice yogurt constiency, ( I use distilled water for all my soaps ) ,,, my cell phone rang talked for 10 min, when I when back to the den, the soap had dissipated...
i decided to shave half my face with stirling naked and smooth, and the other half ... yes haslinger schafmilch.
prep was preshave proraso green and hot towel applied preshave rubbed into my beard for 2 min then rinsed, loaded each soap onto my face.
R89 with a new GSB, this combo for me is...
Been using an R89 for 3 years, i usually do a 3 pass plus touch ups for bbs, the next morning my beard is rough, by midnight it feels like sand paper, i feel i have my technique quite respectable, and just recently stopped ATG on my chin area, i read a lot of threads on the r41 2011 and 2013...
I have the Silvertip fiber V2, but i was contemplating on getting .......I mean asking for the silvrtip badger replacement head ( it unscrews from handle), for fathers day.
Am i missing anything, i have never used a badger brush.
