Wet Shaving

Recommended Posts

What is TOBS?  That link is broken.  My Mitchell Wool Fat is getting low and I might try something else.  I've really enjoyed it.  It gets a thick lather with little to no work up, but I am always curious to try other stuff to see what else is out there.

 

 

Taylor of Old Bond Street:  http://www.tayloroldbondst.co.uk/  

 

 

You can find it on Amazon easily.    The Sandalwood is this best thing human beings have ever made in the history of mankind.

he's correct.  the forum software added the parenthesis in the link (auto hyperlink fail).

I have added so much wet shave stuff to my wish list it not funny. Right now I need to get some new blades and soap and figure some new after shave. Right now I am using Aqua Velva Ice Blue. I am thinking of some Orange Menthol http://www.maggardrazors.com/product/maggard-razors-artisan-shave-soap-orange-menthol-5oz-jar/

I am considering $145.00 order from the same place with that orange menthol. Would get me soap, aftershave, a new better brush, 3 new razors, 2 sample packs of blades, a refill for my current bowl, and a new bowl for the new soap. This way I can have a "travel kit" ready for when my bum finally gets a job.

Three of the same razor or a variety?  Are they name brand, or house/off brand?  I'd rather have a variety, or at least one good one over 3 of the same.  Variety packs are nice for figuring out what you like.  I grab a blade from one i bought in the past no and again.  I noticed they sell samples of their soaps... may be something to consider.

Different razors to try out. EJ89, Parker 24c open comb, and one made by the shop. The blade samplers have 5-10 of each blade so I can use the 30 day test over and over again.

Sounds good to me. A lot dough to spend at one time, but I'm one to talk. Make sure you send us a pic to drool over.

Ok I got the price of my cart down a bit but I had to drop all the razors from it. Big thing I am looking at is the fact I am thinking of the MR6 with open comb head and closed comb head. If this doesn't give me the shave I am looking for then I will be moving to a different razor such as the Parker 24c or 26c or EJ DE89 with knerled handle or maybe even both of them. lol.

So I droped $139 and change on my order for new shave supplies. I got a Parker 24c, a 5 packs sampler of blades, a premium lather bowl, orange pre shave oil, orange menthol shave soap, orange menthol after shave, and a pure badger hair 50mm brush. I know it sound expensive but when you look at the fact I picked up EVERYTHING needed to replace when I have and "dislike" its reasonable.I will post up pics when everything gets here.
