    Arko Man: An Arko August Biography

    As a Turk I was a bit surprised. I am so glad to see this topic here. But honestly even we, Turks, don't exactly know who is the Arko Man. We have talked and discussed about it on our Turkish Shaving Forum (Geltir) actually and we came to conclusion that it was taken from a Yeşilçam (Turkish...

    Lather building time and asking for advice about synthetic brushes from Yaqi

    I almost always do bowl lathering and as a synthetic brush I have the Yaqi Timberwolf, I got it for a very very reasonable price, just around $7-8, I also think and experienced that with this brush I make a good, creamy lather a lot faster than a boar or badger brush.

    New Yaqi Adjustable -REVIEW

    What does it feel like compared to other adjustable razors that we would describe as "giants" (Rex Ambassador, Gillette Slim Adjustable, Merkur Futur, Parker Variant, Merkur Progress, Rockwell 6C)? Can someone that have used this razor give us a little comparison between them? If there's not...

    Do you prep a brand-new shaving brush?

    This! I have also used this technique to soften my boar brush. And, I don't know if anyone does that but I have added ice into the water, results are pretty good. I have an Omega boar brush by the way.

    Proraso White Pre- Shave Issue

    If you guys feel even a little burn, don't ever use it. I was very happy to have a Proraso White pre/post cream for a good price, but from day that I have started to use it as pre shave i would feel the burn. At first I thought that it is normal, because the pain was not too much. But today...

    What Aftershave did you use today?

    Don't ever use Proraso Pre/Post Shave Cream if you feel a burn when you first apply it. I bought it 2 months ago and actually I was feeling a burn when I apply it as preshave, but i thought that it was normal but when I today first and last time in my life applied it to my face as post-shave...

    What razor/blade did you use today

    Have u ever tried Derby Usta? I felt like Usta is much better than Derby Extra in comfort and sharpness-wise.

    Which synthetic (Edwin Jagger or Simpsons)?

    I'd like you to give a chance to Yaqi Synthetic Brushes

    What razor/blade did you use today

    Parker 87R with Derby USTA, i have to say that it performed better than it did with Gillette Nacet or Rapira Swedish Super Steel. Last two ones felt super agressive for me. It's my 5th or 6th shave with this machine and I felt like I am giving up on Parker 87R.

    Bad Yaqi Brush

    Exactly. I have been thinking on this lately. I want to buy a new brush, I don't have any synthetic in hand, I torn between a Silvertip Yaqi or a Synthetic Yaqi. But I guess I'll go with synthetic one

    Are those blade gaps uneven?

    Hey, thank you for your comment. Oh, yeah, it definitely is. At least more agressiver than my EJ DE89, I'd say.

    Are those blade gaps uneven?

    Thank you for your comment! :) About head of all Parker TTO's I don't have any knowledge because it is my first Parker one. But you are probably right, because majority of people that have used Parker 87R described it as a "mild machine". To be honest this was the reason that I bought this...

    Bad Yaqi Brush

    I lather my shaving soap or cream in a bowl. I don't feel like I apply any unnecessary pressure but i don't know.. Yaqi has really surprised me also. I have a Yaqi Moka Express 26mm Two Band Badger and I have to say that I was astonished by softness of the brush when I first got it. But I also...

    Are those blade gaps uneven?

    Thank you for your message. I have to say that I feel very great to have a Parker 87R, i don't regret it, but when i do a comparison between a classic EJ DE89 and Parker 87R i feel like Parker 87R is more agressive than DE89. I think both machines require different angles. After my shave with...

    Bad Yaqi Brush

    But is it not normal? From what I have read and watch I thought like lose a hair or two during a shaving is completely normal.

    Are those blade gaps uneven?

    @rbscebu Thank you for warning me, there won't be anything like that next time. And thank you for your compliments on my new safety razor :) @Invicta yeah, exactly this was the thing that i was concerned about. Because when i was not even a member of B&B, I surfed on site a bit and read...
