I hadn't used the NB in quite a while and I sure was disappointed this time... it just didn't seem very slick at all. This was the first time that I had used it in conjunction with the Proraso pre so maybe that had some negative effect on it.

Hi ,

Use more water to make the NB lather, I had the same problem till one time by accident there got in alot of water into my shavebowl.. too late to get it out I had to swirl my brush..out came great usable lather ! I used the NB with proraso PRE 2 days ago ! very nice..its not the proraso pre's fault..its your water ! we underestimate the water quality to make lather !

A most excellent shave. I have to use the Vulfix brush more often as it is just a pleasure to use....this thing is big enough to mop the floor.

The Eucris is fabulous.

I will be skipping a day on Friday as I have a wedding to attend on Saturday.

Have a great day.
