    Simpsons Eagle G3

    Hey there lads, I’ve been using 2 identical Semogue OC mixed in the past two years. Love them to bits! Bought a couple of synthetics lately which I’m not very fond of. Probably because some lack of diversity (read excitement) I’ve ordered some Simpsons in the past weeks. I already had 2...

    Blackbird Titanium

    Got it today. 1st shave in the evening. Perfect balance between efficiency, aggressiveness, weight, smoothness. It's a great wee looker as well! Steep angle, it worked like a charm. Zero feedback from the alum stone. I know it's just the first shave, but I'm really impressed! :)

    You need a spring to be inserted on the T section. The adjustment will then work. That’s a great suggestion, ordered a pack myself Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk Pro

    After months of hesitation, I finally ordered a Wee Scot and a Case C1 from Simpsons, both in best. Still doubtful about their performance, never used tiny brushes. They should be here in a week or so. [emoji4] Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk Pro

    No brush, I only use my hands to lather. Only joking... The brushes are taken out of the bathroom overnight to dry out, then put back on the shelf. The cabinet is mostly for the candies to my eye.. Not big enough though.. :( I've a NOS Adjustable Aristocrat, a mint #66 Aristocrat set and a...

    Probably Boxing Day is the most relaxing and enjoyable day of the year as far as I’m concerned. Lots of sausages in the house, jammies, grandpa slippers, football and Guinness. So a bit of reading fits in quite well. It’s been a while now I’ve been following topics about the Blackbird razors...

    It’s a good soap. I’m using it once in a while. Their sandalwood balm is great. Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk Pro

    How do you take care of shaving razors?

    TTO - dishwashing liquid and a soft toothbrush for cleaning; Wipe it with a microfibre cloth; Out of the bathroom -> leave it open to dry overnight; Back in the cabinet. Disassembling razors - well... I disassemble every piece, then I repeat the same routine for each piece. Sent from my...

    23 different British Gillette Aristocrat sets - a partial historic overview and my collector’s journey (pics galore)

    It’s a #66 set. The razor is beautiful, in mint condition, unfortunately the case isn’t. I looked on the regular bays, unfortunately I couldn’t find a replacement. I hope one day I’ll be able to pair it with a case as beautiful as the razor. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk Pro

    Talking about handles, anyone can recommend someone making replacements (with metal inserts)? Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk Pro

    The downside of these specific models is that the plastic handles don’t have brass inserts. Extremely fragile. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk Pro

    Very informative, thanks! There are some models with diamond carving on the adjustment and the clamping ring vs the (most common) vertical carving. I’m wondering what’s the story behind... Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk Pro
