  1. If only[emoji2957]. Save a lot of sewing [emoji23][emoji23] Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  2. A small Sami style coffee bag from oak tanned roe deer leather. All hand tanned and stitched. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  3. There is so much more in good soap. In general hand made soap has glycerin as an internal byproduct. In commercial stuff it’s removed for other things and padded out with, well, crap. A lot of artisan soaps have tallow in them and or lanolin ie Mitchell’s wool fat. Shower first (I used to always shave then shower to was away the blood!) to soften beard. Soap up with brush raises and SF often beard. Gentle glide with razor. I discovered I can’t use scented soaps or do a 3 pass shave daily. Shave all downwards first. Soap again then across and if your face allows third soap and upwards. A nice preshave helps like Myrsol emulsion which also has glycerin in it. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  4. I’m loving the Honduras[emoji41][emoji41][emoji41][emoji41] Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  5. I think the Digress is particular to this shop. Others maybe available. https://www.thegentlemansgroomroom.com/products/digress-hd-b-adjustable-safety-razor-brass-retrofit Otherwise the immodest razor shaves just as nice. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  6. I think if you take it slowly!! Every time I got a new razor I thought it was the one!! Same with blades. Got rid of feathers but now like them in the Aristocrat!!! Try the shaving forum. Bound to be plenty folks near you who will lend you stuff!!!!! Bll OK ades, there’s oodles offered in bundles. Quite often they are PIF’d so you could shave for months foc[emoji56] Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  7. The tallow and lanolin (nipple cream) are similar to my own shave soap recipe. Should be nice[emoji56][emoji56] Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  8. Aye. It’s cheaper in the long run[emoji16][emoji16][emoji16][emoji16][emoji16]. I don’t really use my Digress, Weber stainless, Slant, FatBoy, Slim much if ever!!!!!!!!! Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  9. @MWJB cheers. I think I’m getting there. I haven’t got the same hour long puckered mouth this time!!! If that stays constant I could get to enjoy the wee soor taste at the start. Appreciate the help. Hope it helps OP too Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

  11. Right! I screwed it down to 1.9[emoji3]. The sour kinda hit bc at the start of the tasting, not the end but was much less than before. The after taste of sour much hugely reduced. Beginning to wonder if Rhino produced lots of fines in amongst the boulders! So basically I wasn’t on a rough grind before! It was a false reading.

  12. I started off with a Gillette slim adjustable in my birth year!!! The year after James Bond is featured with identical razor in Golf Finger!! I think. Defo get to the shave room forum. Loads of info there but be careful!!! There, the rabbit holes have merged into caverns??????????? Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  13. Razor[emoji177]. Mine £2 antique shop real value £70? Modern reasonable one £20/50. Blades. Not bought for while but £20 a 100. Most just use one blade for 3 shaves. So almost a whole year for £20. Roughly. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  14. I had always gone courser in the past thinking I was chancing away the bitter!! Someone posted it’s highly unlikely to over extract in French press so I’m hoping it’s sour I’m getting. Dropped from 2.4 to 2.1 and it wasn’t worse. Venturing into the 1.? tomorrow [emoji41] Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
