    Did you ever want to list something on the BST . . .

    . . . only to be glad that you didn’t? Have to say I’ve been getting some great shaves with my ATT H1 and R2 plates. I had given up on my set because I considered these razors to give a harsh shave. But using them one last time before listing on the BST, these razors just shine. They...

    FT GC .68 and .84 Plates

    My GC .68 and .84 plates for either your GC OC plate or GC Jaws plate. The .68 was purchased in the first release and has a flat (not notched) underside. Plates were to mild for me and were used only a handful of times. Thanks for having a look!

    A Gem of an Epiphany

    Gem blades (even the coated ones) tend to be very harsh on their first few uses. A few weeks back @shave/brush suggested hand stropping 4 times on each side (seems these blades, not necessarily made for shaving, are not ground as finely as DE blades). Finally gave it a go on a brand new Gem...

    Blackbird or Dart?

    That is the question. Which is nobler in the minds of men that have used both?

    What’s Up With Maseto?

    Their inventory has dwindled on eBay and it doesn’t seem like a 30mm silvertip is available. Are they on their way out of business?

    Proraso Green

    For whatever reason, I’ve never tried any Proraso products. But spying my son’s medicine cabinet the other day after, out of nowhere, he nabbed my favorite boar brush, I noticed he bought some Vanderhaggen shave cream. Did a little checking, nope, not a loved product on B&B. So I thought...

    Gems are, well, a Gem!

    Don’t recall why I meandered into the SE sub forum a couple of weeks ago. But here I am, two Gem razors later. The search for the perfect razor in part motivates the RAD in me. This time, though, my RAD did good, providing not just a new razor, but a whole new shaving experience that so far is...

    WTS Vitos

    I would like to sell 140-150 gram samples of Vitos (Extra Super Coco) from the remainder of the 1000 ml block delivered in May 2017. Great shave soap, but after extended use I have found that I prefer Cella. Price per sample is $8.50 shipped, CONUS only.

    Soaps Suited to a Razor

    We all know that some blades are better suited for some razors (e.g., a Feather will work well in one razor but less so in another). Curious if anyone else finds the same thing with shave soaps, that some soaps work better with some razors than others.

    Fendrihan's Truly Great Under(Un)rated Soap

    Some months ago I made a purchase from Fendrihan and they included a sample of their Sandlewood Lavender Soap. Being a tallow snob, I didn't pay much attention to the vegetable based sample but to mix things up this morning I tried it with great results. Fragrance: great, masculine (even if...

    Vitos vs. Cella (Tub)

    Cella is nice, but Vitos really knocks the ball out of the park, with the bases loaded. Admittedly this is a comparison to Cella in the tub, which may not be the same as the brick. But in comparison with Cella in the tub, Vitos' latherability (as opposed to the resulting lather) is IMHO far...

    Zamak- Should I care?

    Whether I had a plated brass or a plated zamak razor, the truth be told is that I would toss it and get a new one if the plating were to deteriorate, given that replating is an expensive proposition. This of course assumes no manufacturing defect, in which case the manufacturer should stand by...

    I don't like . . .

    Feathers, or Personna Reds. And for good measure, HATE Merkur blades (which nearly sent me back to cartridge razors). Love love love Atsras and Dorco's. Flack Jacket on! Let the rain begin.
