    Timeless VS Wolfman

    Hello gentlemen, I currently have the Timeless OC and scalloped baseplates with the 95 gap. I love the shaves I get from both, but enjoy the OC more. I am thinking of getting the 1.25 when my name comes up on the Wolfman list, but I am unsure about OC or SB. For those who have tried both, how...

    Wolfman Help

    Hello, I have never ordered a Wolfman before. I know it’s a long wait, but I wanted advice from current Wolfman owners. I hav have been using a Timeless 95OC for about a month. It’s my first premium razor and I absolutely love the shave I get. I only shave 2-3 times a week, so the 95 works...

    Following The RAD Rabbit...

    I just got a Timeless Ti95 OC for Father’s Day; which is the smoothest, best shave I have ever had. The razor is a beauty too. Now, the RAD rabbit is calling to me again, saying, “follow me, I know the way. Past the Simpson Brushes and the Wholly Kaw soap shop.” The RAD rabbit now has me staring...

    What Got You Started?

    I think it would be fun to hear about all of the many different reasons we all got started in this hobby. What got you started? For me, I loathed using cartridge razors, they felt like sandpaper, and I got horrible irritation...just thinking about it makes me cringe. What was your first shave...

    Buying Timeless Razor Help

    Hello fellow RADists! So I have convinced my wife to buy me a Timeless razor for Father’s Day, super excited! I need some help from the community as I have never had a titanium razor (currently my only razor is the Edwin Jagger DE89). If I purchase the titanium, I will have to purchase from the...

    Soap Scent

    I love that so many soap makers provide a variety of scents for us to choose, but are there others in this community that feel as I do? Let me explain, there are certain scents that I find tolerable in soap from, but once the scent intensifies upon lathering, I find the scent very disgusting...

    Artisan Soaps & Storage

    Hey y’all! I’ve been having lots of questions lately so sorry for another question. I know many of you have vast soap collections. My skin can only tolerate twice-weekly shaves, so the 6 soaps I have should last me a while. Can you guys recommend some containers or give me tips on keeping...

    Soap Behavior

    Hello, I have been wet shaving for about 2 years. Until recently I would face lather exclusively. Since starting to bowl lather, I have found there are certain soaps that I had trouble building a quality lather when face lathering, that work quite well bowl lathering. Has anyone else found they...

    Difficult Soaps To Lather

    Hi everyone, Mitchell’s Wool Fat has the reputation of being a soap that’s difficult to get a good lather for a lot of people. What other soaps tend to be more difficult? I have learned so much from you all. Thank you!

    BBS & Lather

    Hello B&B!! I had a question about lather that might be a little silly to the more experienced wet shavers. First, I never expected to enjoy my shaves so much! Most of the time I don’t want to have to fiddle with lather, I just want a soap that produces rich, cushiony lather from the...

    What’s the scuttlebutt??

    Hello wonderful forum! You all were super helpful with my last inquiry for a Simpson super badger brush, that I have come here again to learn from this fine community. Up until now, I have been 100% a face latherer, but from time to time I have read the virtues of bowl lathering, so I’m...

    Hello fellow wet shavers!! The journey upon the road of wet shaving has been a delight! Along the way, I have acquired some great brushes--particularly the Duke 3. However, I have an idea that I would like to try the luxurious, pillowy-softness of the Simpson super badger hair. I'm strictly a...

    Hello friends. I have been a long time lurker and have enjoyed reading many threads. Thanks to the helpful information on this forum I dove into the world of wet shaving a little over a year ago. Quite unexpectedly I have enjoyed every minute of the experience--from buying my first blade sampler...
