    Tip.. when you're done; re-lather and do it again ( if you want to be anal about it ). Which we all are on occasion.

    Now that is an awesome setup! I have not tried Tabac yet? What are your thoughts on it? Also, I like your STOTD. I have done that many a time for sure! Also, your Clubman collection is spot on! Thank you for sharing this. :)

    Tabac… shave soap, aftershave, and cologne . All are a 'must have' in my opinion.
    Also I must mention Speick… the aftershave … once you try it, you'll always want some on hand.

    To add... that Clubman Whiskey Woods is being used up rapidly... I'll be ordering up more in short order!

    Thanks to you Sir, I see three new items in my next order. I wanted to try that Whiskey Woods but they were out of it. I had ordered the Special Reserve and it is pretty good. Thanks for the input! :)

    Had a shave with Gillette Blue Silvers today. Where have you been all my life?! Talk about an effortless shave in a slant razor.

    When I was in High School, aside from dodging dinosaurs, I used to spend time at my friend's house. His mother was a beautician with a shop in their basement. She had the disposable blade straight razor, although, I am unsure of the brand name.

    I attempted to shave with it once. It was muy sharp, as could be attested by the blood trail from the shop's bathroom to the kitchen.

    I don't recall anything about the quality of the shave, just the blood... lots and lots of blood! [​IMG]

    Butt*, I healed up and you can barely see the scar! :bwah:

    Good luck in your quest.

    I've never tried that but looks pretty cool. Based on the Japanese Kamisori razors which I'm dying to get my hands on one of these days.

    I found the Mecca of shaving soaps/creams in NYC. Endless shelves of products and frankly quite daunting. Here's a few items I scored. I couldn't get the image sizing right butt... you get the idea. :ronl::ronl::ronl:

    Looks like the CJB GR-100B is pretty inexpensive on Maggard Razors. Good choice to see if you like using a Kamisori or not.

    I use a nice double edge by merkur. I have a Japanese feather straight style razor with disposable blades that is dangerous. Don't use that so much.
