hey there...just a dumb question from a dull mind:   does it affect the performance of the Williams Soap if it is "yellowed" when you buy it in the box? Huh

Well, OCtober has come to an end. Starting out with Lather Catcher Sunday. I have been enjoying VDH Luxury Shave Soap this week with my JR #144 Badger brush. Sunday's shave will feature my Ever-Ready Lather Catcher with a Personna SS PTFE blade. Wabbit Season will begin for me Monday.

Cold Water Rinse
Van Der Hagen Luxury Shaving Soap
Jayaruh #144 Finest Badger
Ever-Ready Lather Catcher
Personna GEM SS PTFE
Aqua Velva 5 in 1 ASB

The Van Der Hagen Luxury Shaving Soap face-lathered well with Jayaruh #144 Finest Badger Brush. Two passes and touch ups with the Ever-Ready Lather Catcher razor with a Personna GEM SS PTFE blade gave me a close, comfortable shave. After a cold water rinse I finished off with Aqua Velva 5 in 1 ASB. I am clean, smooth, and refreshed...

This is why it's called a lather catcher. This is after the first pass. Excellent shave.

  Fuzzy gotta new brush....
Posted by: Wchnu - 10-26-2020, 03:06 AM - Forum: Shave Brushes - Replies (4)

        Awhile back @9nein9 made me a couple of brush handles. I put a flat top badger in one of them and have been waiting to finish the last one. I finally got that done. The knot is a 70/30 Maggards knot on 26mm. I think this is the biggest brush I have had. It worked good on the vintage Williams. I did have to go back to the cake for my second pass. I guess I have to learn this big ole brush.

The handle on the 1912 was turned by Patrick also!

  Yaqi synthetics - not so satisfied...
Posted by: Z-2 - 10-23-2020, 10:38 AM - Forum: Shave Brushes - Replies (4)

Yesterday I've got mail call - a Yaqi Tuxedo synthetic 24mm brush. Since the brush is nice itself, today I decided to try it. I never used synthetic brushes till now and was curious, reading so many comments and reviews how great are they.

I've got good lather with hungarian barbon cream, can't complain about that, but still prefer my cheap pure badger brush. I simply can't understand the fuss about synthetics. 2 things I realized from shave :

1) the brush was too soft and sprayed lather all around when I create lather from cream (face lather)

2) the lather was good, but not that thick as from my badger (I use mostly cheap pure badger brushes like Shea moisture and VDH, lately Bevel). I much prefer also feeling of exfoliating on my skin from pure badgers.

What are your opinions about synthetics vs badgers? Thanks !

I came across this listing a while back. Saw it wasnt getting bid up. So I put in a bid and no one fought me for it. Hoping I can get a gem blade working in it.

Knock knock.

...Who's there?

It's me, Carl from MO.  I have been away a while, but I found the new TOST3 address.
For those that don't remember, I am from Missouri and I use vintage Schick injectors and an old 1912 pattern SE.  ...  (And "other thingies").  I tend to like the vintage razors.  All of the razors I own are way more than 50 years old.
I haven't posted much, but I still enjoy shaving on a regular basis.  Looking forward to reading the threads here, and posting whenever I have something to say.
I looked over the member list and saw some familiar folks here, which is good.  So, Hello everybody, good health and good shaves to all.
