The "post a pic of your purchase" thread admires the level of cuntiness in this post.
I need a brush rec too. Ive beat my Plisson to death. Great brush but I don't even remember the model or whatever.
That Darn Rob, Leo Frilot, Grizzly Bay, Turn N Shave, Wildwest Brushworks, Rich Man Shaving and Lowborn Supply all have really good brushes between 50$ and 80$. You can also choose your knot
Think you would be better off here (https://forums.rivals.com/forums/college-football-soundoff.20/). It more reflects your maturity level.
You serious, Clark?
So after doing this for a few months,I realized I was lathering wrong. My skin always felt super dry. Wasn't putting enough water in the later. Switched from face lathering to bowl and it made all the difference.
Also got a scuttle and oh man, warm lather is just the best.
Shaving went from a chore to an enjoyable experience. Im sure Im just excited about a new thing/hobby but now I see how one can go nuts and splurge on too much stuff.
Remembered I had the Wee Scot for travel and Ive been using it the past week. Little guys packs a punch.
Looking for razor reqs.
My first razor was the adjustable Merkur clone form China. My second was a cheapo butterfly from Stirling Soap that I just threw in to my order because why not.
I actually like the Stirling one, but it's pretty mild and I need a bajillion passes to get it where I want.
The Futur clone - you need a weird angle to get it right which Im not really loving as much after using the other razor.
Any recs for a more aggressive razor? I know the muhle open comb is the most aggressive, but a bit unsure I want to get that aggressive.
Try a slant, aggressive in a good way.
Slim or Fat Boy adjustable gives you lots of options. A vintage red tip is around a 6 or 7 setting and a blue tip is closer to a 3 or 4. A super speed is somewhere in the middle but every person is different. Techs are too mild for you based on what you’re saying.
Ive been researching the past few days - Does anyone have experience w the Parker 99r?
Also - I was at Marshalls the other day and they had a Van der hagen badger brush, For 6 bucks I thought, why not?
It smells HORRIBLE. It also has been shedding like crazy. I washed/soaked it in dish soap, loaded it w tabac soap and left in in a baggie for a couple days. Smell is still there just not as strong but pretty bad.
I expected it to be crappy and lose a lot of hairs, but do all badger brushes smell strongly out of the box?
My other two brushes are a Razorock synthetic and a Stirling boar hair. I love both those brushes. The boar hair didnt smell at all, which I was surprised.
Yeah they stink, but a Tabac lather is typically enough if not two or three. That’s unfortunate.
Meh. I like I said it was cheap and had low expectations.
I’ve had a little luck with white vinegar diluted further with water. Follow with dawn a few times then lather again. After that, it’s at least a good travel brush.
You need to check out a slant.
Second this. They're also cheap to pick up if you have the patience for antiquing.
If you favor more modern adjustable, then you could look into the Ambassador from Rex Supply or the Model T from Rockwell
Does this thread have a good electric razor recommendation? I wet shave when I have time but with a toddler itsmhsrd in the mornings. So need to have the convenient option. Because of wet shaving I know I have hairs going in different directions so leaning towards rotary vs foil. Are the more expensive ones ($200 range) worth it over the $50 ones?
Id be curious as well. On days Im running late I don't shave at all assuming I don't have a client meeting. Id love to at least look half presentable.
If anyone wants a free brush -
Looks like a scam, but I placed an order this afternoon and just got the rebate. Brush might be crap, but hey - it's free.
