A few days ago I saw on facebook where an old friend of my older brother was shaving off his winter beard. He stated that he decided to go "old school" and is loving it so far. I couldn't identify any item from his photo except that the soap had viking revolution on it. It's probably safe to assume he just ordered some stuff off of Amazon. I immediately suggested he visit the Pasteur's website to look at Stirling, Captain's Choice, and PdP for some good options. A little while ago I dropped off some Nacets, Astra SS, and Astra SP for him to try along side the no name blades that came with the razor. It's time to sit back and see if it takes.
