I need to specify that I am referring to the Karve Overlander (above).
That is also my definition of a Frankenrazor.As I mentioned earlier, my Frankens are not simply a non-matching handle attached to a standard head. For me, that's not a Franken. That's simply a handle swap. A real Franken is a head made up of a cap and base that do not come from the same razor maker. A lot of experimenting is necessary to figure out not only which caps and bases are compatible, but which combinations produce results that are superior to the razor heads from a single company.
How much of each item do you add to a soap or what ratio do you use to make the mixture (if you make a batch at a time)?I note that a lot of folks are constantly in search of a slick lathering soap. I use a mixture of Coconut Oil, Shea Butter and Aloe Vera. A little dab added to any soap instantly creates the slickest lather you could imagine. You can save a lot of money doing this instead of buying one soap after another in search of something that's so easy to make at home.
I used a cup of Coconut Oil, a cup of Shea Butter and a tablespoon of Aloe Vera whisked together in a bowl to create Mr. Slick. This turned out to be way more than I actually needed. I add a finger nail's worth of Mr. Slick to my shaving soap -- about 1 part of soap to one half part of Mr. Slick. I use a bowl for preparing the mixture. Then I face lather. This beats any commercial product I have ever used.How much of each item do you add to a soap or what ratio do you use to make the mixture (if you make a batch at a time)?
