    Help with Cella

    OK, is there some magical secret to using Cella? I can't seem to find the right ratio of water/soap. I've tried both bowl and face lather and I keep ending up thin and it dissipates almost instantly. I've heard a lot of people extoll the performance of Cella, but I'm finding it frustrating...

    PAA Double Open Comb Razor

    I just ordered this razor. This will be my first open comb razor. Aside from it just being a sexy piece of art I can admire, I'm excited to see there will be a difference between it and my Merkur 38c. If anyone has any experience with it, please chime in. I'd love to know your experience with it.
