    Homelike Colibri

    Anyone see this new razor from Homelike Shaving? Looks like they too the CAPT (aka START) razor and improved upon it. Plate gaps are a little more agressive for each “level,” knurling was added to the handle which appears to be a little longer than the START and the head design actually looks a...

    Coldest menthol aftershave?

    Ok so i’m a bit of a menthol junkie in the summer (and sometimes in the winter.) I’ve amassed a decent sampling of mentholated aftershaves but i’m wondering what my fellow B&B’ers consider to be the coldest, most over the top menthol aftershave currently on the market. My list of mentholated...

    What is the oldest (purchased new) brush you own?

    Curious how long some of you have had your brushes. I’m not talking date of manufacture but rather what’s the longest you’ve had a brush you purchased new. Looking forward to the replies!

    When did aftershave splashes fall out of fashion? And why?

    So I was reading another thread and it suddenly struck me as odd that aftershave splashes, once so common and varied, now have all but dried up (pardon the pun.) Sure you still have pinaud and aquavelva hanging around on the bottom shelves of most stores but they’re no longer advertised and...

    Macduff’s Monthly Blade Review: Feather Hi-Stainless

    So i'm back with another monthly review! As before, each blade will be reviewed based on a 2 pass (plus touch up) shave using a Van Der Hagen long handled razor, Long Rifle 1776 soap and a 3 brush rotation consisting of a Fento badger, Yaqui synthetic and an Omega boar. I use a different brush...

    Barbasol Skin Sensitive Cream?

    So i did a search before posting and couldn’t find a thread on this stuff so i decided to start one! I did see some old threads about the barbasol brushless cream from back in 2008-2015 but nothing on the newer “skin sensitive” stuff. Is it the same formula just repackaged? Is it still...

    A math problem for all you spreadsheet fans!

    Ok so i admit it...i love tracking my shaving products. I’m not full blown spreadsheet (yet) but i track the price and start/end dates of everything i buy. Recently i had an interesting thought and was wondering if my math actually holds up. For that, i relying on the math wizards here at B&B...

    “Your Choice” Tuck of blades PIF!

    So for reasons a bit too lengthy to explain here (check out the leap year sabbatical thread if you’re curious) i’m going to PIF the lucky winner a tuck of blades of their choice! Only caveats are it it has to be available on razorbladesclub.com and is limited to US members only. I’ll handle the...

    Favorite discontinued shaving items?

    So what shave product did you shed a tear for when you found out it was gone? English Leather? Old spice shaving soap? Polsilvers? (just kidding! Or am i...) Whatever it is i want to know! Couple caveats though: 1) No reformulation laments. Yeah maybe old spice smelled better back in the day and...

    Macduff’s Monthly Blade Review: Gillette Platinum

    A very happy new year to all and i’m glad to be back with a review after a couple months of holiday hiatus. As before, each blade will be reviewed based on a 2 pass (plus touch up) shave using a Van Der Hagen long handled razor, Long Rifle 1776 soap and a generic Fento badger brush. I’ve...

    Christmas PIF!

    So in the spirit of the season i’d like to offer up this 1928 Gillette Tuckaway. It’s not much of a specimen but none of the combs are bent, the usual cracking is not too bad and the razor shaves just fine. I’ll take care of the shipping (ConUS only.) To make things interesting i figured i’d...

    Shave stick AND preshave?

    So this question just popped into my head. I use a shave stick for travel but never bring along preshave. I use the GD preshave for my regular shaves but always use soap and a brush at home. So, given that the normal shave stick routine involves rubbing the stick over the beard first, how would...

    In thinking what would be the best (and easiest) shaving cream to get for my fiancé, i’m heavily considering cremo because its brushless, comes in a non-rustable tube and i’ve heard it doesn’t wash off easily with water (i.e. it’ll be good for shower shaving.) My question is whether the...

    Blades on Alibaba

    Who wants in on 1,000,000 cartons of PANDA’s?! Some Haywards? Pearlmax? Anyone? I’m seriously having a blast looking at all these random blades for bulk sale on alibaba. Price for entry is steep but man could you make a killing selling Panda’s out of the back of your car!

    Need help id’ing some blades.

    So i just bought a HUGE sample pack from razorbladesclub and i assumed that there would be some screw ups just due to the nature of my order. Because the blades aren’t labeled, i can’t tell if they sent me the wrong blades or the blades are just utilizing the same packaging for different blades...

    Charles Roberts Method Shaving: Pioneer or Over-thinker?

    So I stumbled upon this guy in one of the posts here and started doing a little research. His method shaving approach is....interesting. I’ve heard that he’s responsible for the 3+ passes that are pretty much standard in DE shaving now so obviously he has had a lot of influence. That and he was...

    Worlds oldest (still in production) aftershave?

    Like the title says, what’s the worlds oldest, continually produced aftershave? I’m not talking reformations or re-releases, just the oldest continually produced scent? Think Old Spice classic (and yes i know the debate rages but it’s still ‘the same.’) Anyone who can enlighten me gets my...

    What’s your take on Non Age Statement Scotch?

    So like many here, i enjoy scotch quite a bit. Once i started really getting into it, i realized one of the most contentious topics in scotch has to be over age statements. Many brands are now releasing NAS single malts and it seems people are generally not pleased with it. Personally, though...

    Homelikeshaving CTAPT razor.

    After two years daily driving my Van Der Hagen i think i’m finally going to buy my “forever”’razor. I really love this this CTAPT razor set and the price is right in my book. Anyone have any experience with it? I’ve found scant little online about it. Looks beautifully made though and with that...
