    Anyone Still Wearing Blue Stratos?

    I was born in the early eighties and I remember all of my older siblings getting aftershaves for Christmas. It was usually the Aqua Velva, Old Spice, English Leather and other usual players; however, the other day I stumbled upon a reference to Blue Stratos and when I saw the bottle it brought...

    Which Denim Aftershave to Try?

    Hello fellow wet shavers, I am a bit of a vintage aftershave kind of guy. I like using products that are inexpensive and take me back to when I was a kid and in some cases before. I want to try Denim but not sure which scent to go for. My daily wear splashes are Brut and Aqua Velva Musk. My...

    Kent BK8 Shedding and No Longer Holding Lather

    Hello gents (and ladies), My lovely girlfriend bought me a Kent BK8 for our anniversary. What a nice brush, a little floppy but was a lather machine and was a great experience. One issue with it was it shed 10 hairs per shave for the first few, then less and less but it still loses 2-3 hairs...

    Shaveworks the Cool Fix

    Done anyone here have any experience with this stuff? I recently shaved with a razor that I shelved forever ago because how much I hated it. For some reason I thought my technique had improved so I gave this old girl another go. I learned that my technique hasn't changed and this razor and I...

    Anyone try PAA Sun Down?

    Just wondering if any of you fine gentlemen (and ladies) have tried this shave soap from PAA. I am intrigued by it as I wasn't born until 12 years after it was already discontinued. I find the classic scents the best. I am torn between this and Sacre Bleu. I'd like to buy both, but I am...

    New Razorock Soaps

    Looks like the boys at Razorock have come out with some new soaps. The descriptions look good, especially the blue floid inspired one. I have been using their soaps for awhile now and love the performance of their tallow soaps. My only complaint is the mild scent. Anyone try these yet?

    Razorrock Dead Sea - Cannot Get Good Lather

    Good day folks, I am a self taught latherer and my technique is probably different than most but it works for me on all of my soaps with the exception of the Dead Sea. With all of my other soaps I start with a damp brush, work the soap in the container until my brush gets dry, they wet the...

    R41 or Fatip??

    Happy Easter ladies and gents, I have progressed from mild safety bar razors to vintage Gillette open combs and I still have issues with some hairs on my neck that lay flat. I cannot go against the grain unless I want severe razor burn. Different tricks have left me with razor burn so my new...
