Nvm Gerry; just nitpicking....:P Love for you to do a DE shaving review; always wondered if Trumper was worth it; the skin food is all I've tried and that's great but wondering about other stuff too.

No matter what Filson bag any member here gets, it doesn't beat thebrownman's leather bag IMO. It's got all the aesthetics of a work bag in terms of shape and size plus it's super functional it seems. Not too big but not too 'laptop' small in terms of width. I was going to ask him where he got it but not too long ago I saw on his tumblr that it was already answered. Damn shame that it's made by a no-name indian artisan guy.

The Trumper shaving cream is a cut above the stuff I was using which is the tube stuff you get in the supermarket. The skin food seems to rejuvenate the skin after the shave. I don't use aftershave but tend to just splash on cold water followed by no-fragrance moisturiser.

 

I expect I will get some cuts as I shave tomorrow, probably before I even realise it, but as I get better at it, I will end up with a closer shave than I used to get with safety razors. We'll see ...

 

If you want some in-depth reviews of shavers, blades, brushes, creams, etc., this is the place to go.

Tomorrow it begins smile.gif

I could never see the point of spending big on a brush but I got a ridiculously good deal on a silver tip and haven't looked back.

Generating lather is actually a bit like polishing shoes: play around a bit to get the cream/water mix right, then it's all down to lots of light, quick motion.

A random aside: my shaving 'bowl' is a little chrome dish designed for serving Indian good that I bought from Wheel and Barrow.

One final tip, which wasn't obvious (to me at least) from the various shave sites: wet your brush a good ten mins before you plan to use it. The hairs absorb water and swell up a bit, making the whole thing work better...

Also, while I'm at it, shaving101.com is a great resource.

Anyway, good luck! smile.gif

No but I once bought a pair of shoelaces that were made in Rhodesia.

Thanks for the tips!

Don't shave Gerry, let your beard shine! But, if you do insist on removing the manliness from your face, then ... good luck! smile.gif

The tip about the brush from False Prophet is a good one. Grow a beard! Who here has a beard?

I have one and it's going soon. Someone overestimated my age by 20 years today... maybe if I lose the beard I'll start getting carded at pubs again.

Me - bearded for 16 years and counting. I started growing one whilst bumming around SE Asia and never shaved it off!
