For Sale: Got a short Merkur Progress that I purchased as a back-up to my Gold Progress. I now realize that I don't really need it. Price is $50 which includes a 10/pack of Merkur & 5/pack of Astra SP blades. Free shipping alongwith an USPS tracking number for CONUS only. Please note, this razor does not have a retainer ring. I found it is so mucheasier to assemble without it. Much like a Merkur HD model. Also the removal of the retainer ring does not effect the quality of the shave. I used this razor for about a month or two. It is in excellent condition. Pay-Pal please. Thanks for looking.

since im curious now. i got a 22mm set to 46mm and i have always bought higher loft brushes, this one is very different though and in a way i kind of like it. just takes a lot of soap to get it to lather great, and def a face lather brush so now i want to go back to my choice of 24mm (the 22mm was really to see the difference) and im curious what your choice of loft is on a 24mm and why? also my other 24mm is a 50mm loft.
One of my first shave soaps was Tabac. Enjoying the hunt and variety of soaps available I later purchased Proraso red and then later Dr. Harris Marlborough. I now have three soaps with a very similar scent. My question is what other soaps/ creams smell like Tabac? I would like to try other scents on my next purchase.
I'm in the process of making up my mind about which shaving brush I should buy, so if you can suggest any good horse hair brushes(I've decided on these on moral grounds), then please do so. I'm currently split between vie-long 13061M, 12705 and Vie-Long J.L. Petree Edition Premium Horse Hair Brush and I can't make up my mind based on the limited number of reviews that I've seen. Here is my rationale for picking these 3. The 12705 has nice reviews both here and on various sites online. The only complaint that I've read is that the handle is bad. The 13061M supposedly has the same or very similar knot as the 12705, but a better handle according to reviews. However, the 12705 is $18, while 13061M is $32. Is the handle really worth the extra $? The Petree Edition is currently on sale for $30 a
I have been using a cartridge razor for 16 years and I want to upgrade to a straight razor (cut throat razor). I was told I should start out with a Double Edge Safety Razor. I can see why but now I was wondering which way was the best way of securing the blade? 2 piece, 3 piece or a twist to open safety razor? What angle do I need to hold the blade at with a safety razor? I have watched a lot of videos at shave nation and you tube. Although I find these topics to be interesting I would like to know more. Also are these questions legitimate or am I being overly cautious? Comments are greatly appreciated, positive or negative, throw them my way!
My apologies for anyone who has responded to me in the past on this one, but I would like to buy a Tradere Solid Bar razor, new or gently used. Please let me know what you have. Thank you and have a great day! Scott

I've got a bit of travel out of the way and back on new product additions. Most of these have been sitting on the shelves for months. You'd know that already if you stopped in the store. :wink2: Now that we have two new writers, the rest of the 200 or so new products will finally make it to the site.

With my Christmas money I bought a beautiful UFO razor handle. It was custom-made just for me. I've been using it with a Stahly live blade razor head. That makes a great razor but I need more aggression. I have also use it with a Fa tip head but that is slightly too aggressive for daily use. So I need your help. I'm looking for a razor head that is more aggressive than the Stahly but milder than the FaTip. Any ideas? Ikon, Tradere, Weber? Others? Any and all thoughts are appreciated.

I just received my new brush from Rudy yesterday and all I can say is wow! This brush looks better then the picture can do justice. The color changes and swirl pattern are excellent. Like many others have have said, Rudy was nothing but wonderful to work with. He did a great job at answering all of my questions and helping guide me in the right direction. I was looking for a good all around performer as I do both mug and face lathering, and I think we nailed it. The knot is a TGN 24mm set at 52 mm. I can wait to to try it out and break it in as I think this may be the only brush I could ever need. Although it won't be the only brush I get. I'm already thinking of my next brush to have Rudy create. Attached Images image.jpg (21.5 KB) image.jpg (22.0 KB) image.jpg (21.4 KB)
I would like to sell my slant. German made Sonnal in case with some blades left. A brush, don't really know if the brush came with that case but it's a "new" brush, never used. The razor I tried once, don't think it was used before me. Some minor scratches on the case bottom but as you know, mobilepictures don't make our razors justice. I think $50 plus $10 for shipping. PM me if interested and if you think my price's completely off the wall, let me know what you concider a good price. I also have a UFO handle I would like to trade, I prefer cased British Gillettes, but anything cased can be of interest as long as it's a DE razor. 162190981_4eb7bc78-5ccc-4f31-a6c7-ae7d55 0a0ba2.jpg 162190981_5d650acc-d1f3-4f26-ae84-4ada4a 6a7172.jpg 162190981_d7915bf6-c1c1-43e6-858a-21e9ce b2d47d.jpg 16219098
I had an idea last week and it worked. I love the scent of Clubman and dislike the smell of my Zippo lighter I decided to mix it up. I found that 1 part Clubman to 3 parts Zippo fluid works great perfect burn and no more nasty Zippo fluid smell just a light Clubman scent when I use the lighter.
