Beautiful razor, Mike.  Are you going to let it patina or keep it polished?

Thank you, Ricardo. It is beautiful. I generally like my razors polished, but since this is bead blasted I may let it patina and see how I like it. I have some polished and raw brass items and I don't mind the raw brass. Time will tell!!! I also have my eye on their aluminum razor if I like this one. I just kind of made an educated guess on the plate. I think all in with shipping from Canada this ran around $117 U.S.

Best "Barbershop" shave cream, imo. How do you dispense it?

I estimate about one year.  My two primary splashes are Proraso and Epsilon Blue.  However, I don't use them every day.   Some days I use witch hazel (with alcohol.) or another splash.

Primo, I have two empty 100ml bottles of the Proraso after shave.  I remove the plastic reducer, refill the bottle, and replace the reducer.  I then just pour the aftershave in my hand.  I've thought about an atomizer, but I prefer to splash the aftershave on rather than spray it on.

I looked at the photo and thought it was the shaving cream...duh!

Father's Day score.  Wifey and I took a trip to a town about an hour from us to hit up some antique shops.  Saw some nice items in the other shops, but nothing worth pulling the trigger on.  Till I saw this.  A 1958 Blue Tip.  I've been wanting to add a Bluey to the lineup.  It was in great shape.  Doors opened & closed without a hitch.  Nothing bent.  $15.  Yes!  Took it home and gave it a proper wash and sanitization.  Ready for tomorrow nights shave.

This is my Summer of Menthol, so I figured it was time to give Proraso Green another go around. Last time I bought a bottle was a few years ago, and I eventually gave it to my friend who loves all things Proraso. I’ll use the P-Green for my next shave. Which may not happen until the day after tomorrow because today’s Red Tip shave was so excellent. I’m thinking it may pair quite nicely with Shannon’s Aussie Ice. Will report back on that. Then there’s the backups on the Wool Fat and Sir Arthur Love Last but not least, I’ve been wanting to try the MWF bath soap for some time and finally pressed add to cart. Contentment.

As soon a s I saw the green, I was going to say MENTHOL!!! Last time you had it did you not like it? You are a much braver menthol warrior than me. One time I used the green pre-shave with the shaving cream and my face damn near froze off. I was literally freaking out, it was just overwhelming for me.

I have been curious about the MWF bath soap too.  Do please let us know what you think of it after you have cracked that package!

Charlie, I've used the MWF bath soap and it's excellent.

Guys, women like the MWF bath soap. Adding some bars to your next BullGoose order will serve you well.

It wasn’t the menthol that put me off. It was the eucalyptus. The scent of the splash is not identical to the cream. Rather, it’s complementary. Kind of weirded me out at the time. But since I’ve expanded my scent horizons it makes sense to try the product again.

But… the color… Rolleyes

Your endorsement is good for me, Ricardo. I often find we share similar tastes in many things shave related.
