    Bay rum I guess the clove scent is not for me

    Right there with you! The only bay rum I ordered was a hard no for me. I PIF'ed it and felt bad about it.

    When is a soap no longer any good?

    I have two soaps from the same company that were granulated (not a homogeneous mixture) when I received them from the vendor. Has the soap begun to separate? Will rebatching the soap help with this?

    Rockwell 6s vs Karve CB vs Razorock GC

    This is tough. My vote was for the GC .84. I have never used a Karve, so take that with a grain of salt. I like my 6c, but find that my sweet spot would be somewhere between the R4 and R5 plates. The GC falls perfectly within the sweet spot.
