Ok, you know there are great works of literature you think everyone must surely have read, but you haven't read yourself. 'War and Peace'? Never read it!

I was thinking the same must apply when it comes to shaving gear: razors, creams, whatever.

As a bit of light hearted fun, I'll state my 'missing greats': the idea is is you name a great work of literature you have never read, then the shaving item you haven't tried. Ok, here we go:

Moby Dick
Castle and Forbes Shaving Cream

I actually read War and Peace in 2011 for an online book club, so I can knock that off the list. So for now I'll say:

Dante's Divine Comedy

I managed to get a master's in English without reading Ulysses, Paradise Lost, or Don Quixote.

Never tried a Personna 74 tungsten blade.

I read Moby Dick but never shaved with a harpoon.

Yes. And the Leatherstocking series. He was a fairly prolific writer so there are many different works to check out

The Illiad - I have opened it so many times, but I just can't focus enough to put a dent in it.

Martin de Candre original - I am intrigued by the performance and polarizing scent, but can't justify $70 at this time with so many soaps and creams already on hand. I should have jumped in on the sample group buy through Garry, but of course I didn't.

I saw the movie, but I've never read Gone with the Wind.
And I've never shaved with any of the great (or not so great) straight razors.

To be fair, one of those was not originally written in English. Smile

As for me, I've never read The Great Gatsby. Nor have I ever tried a Geo F. Trumper soap (though, from the sound of it, they're rather poor after the reformulation, which is a tragedy).

Never read For Whom the Bell Tolls.

I've also never tried MWF. I have the puck, but haven't used it.
