    Merkur Slant!

    Slant FTW. A buddy of mine let me borrow his. Tonight I warmed up a towel, got the whiskers ready, and popped a Feather into the slant. BBS in most spots with a couple of barely rough patches. My sensitive neck is only mildly irritated, but the AS Balm is helping that. It's going to be hard...

    Outstanding gift

    I've been working with a committee at school, one of whom is a member here, for a big project I've been responsible for. Tonight was the culmination of all our efforts and they awarded me with an outstanding gift: http://www.truefittandhill.com/detail_00278__19.html I was floored. I can't...

    Watch Suggestions?

    I am looking for a watch. My birthday is coming up and I'm also graduating from law school 8 days later. My wife has told me that she and our families would like to all go in together for a big gift for me. I wanted to get something I won't replace with something new and better in 5 years...

    Butterscotch Brushes?

    Does anyone make these anymore? I don't see them sold, but there was that one time I made a mistake and missed something. Could have happened again.

    Creed Green Irish Tweed Smells Like Lucky Number 6

    Really I mean vice versa, as Creed has obviously been around longer. I got my sample of Irish Tweed today. It's quite potent. A little dab really goes a long, long way. However, as the title says, it smells like Lucky 6. My wife and I are almost positive. Her little brother has Lucky 6 and...

    AOS AS Balm > T&H?!

    I have to say it, AOS AS Balm is way better than T&H. I got my T&H sample pack in the mail yesterday and I tried out Trafalgar this morning. Cream lathered up well and there was more than ample AS balm. I slapped it on and performed well enough. Still smells great 3 hours later. However, my skin...

    Excellent Truefitt and Hill Customer Service

    I placed an order for their shaving cream sampler pack. I recieved some confirmation emails and noticed this morning that I had completely botched the shipping address. I emailed them and recieved a very timely reply offering to fix the mistake I had made. I'm so pleased. I thought my things...

    Just got a Weishi on loan from my buddy. I normally use a Shavette. Is there a learning curve for the DE like there is for the Shavette?

    Stretched face?

    What causes the stretched feeling of my face after I shave sometimes? I have only noticed since I started using Merkur blades ony my shavette. (worst product I have ever used-out of all products ever.) How do I stop it?! It feels awful!

    VDH Boar Brush FTW!

    I've been using the small badger brush from the AOS starter kit with mediocre results. I decided to bust out the VDH brush I got with my VDH soap. I had written it off because it was boar and "cheap". Wrong. It was great. I got better lather than I ever have. Outstanding result. :thumbup:

    Merkur is horrible.

    I switched to a Merkur blade on my shavette today because my Dovos that came with it wore out. My face was swiss cheese. I don't understand how my shave experience could change so drastically, but it did.

    TOBS Sampler

    Is it true they stopped making these? I heard accordingly and promptly ordered one from shaving essentials. I can't wait for them to get here. Will post my favorites when they arrive and I work them in.

    Old School Beards? Moustaches?

    I'm talking things like handlebars, Scottish moustaches, and chops. Anyone keep a well-groomed beard or moutache of the old school variety? I am unable to grow a full beard. What I have is splotchy and not full. I await the day I am actually able to grow something. I'm planning on Scottish...
