400 Aluminium Plissoft Brush.
Anyone who sees my regular SOTD Posts will Know that I own many High End Artisan made Brushes.
However my favourite Synthetic Knot has always been the RazoRock "Plissoft". Set in this Rubberset type Aluminium Handle it is an absolute Joy to use in every way.
It is a serious Contender for being my Favourite Brush,,,!!! I Have Bowl Lathered, Face Lathered, and Lathered straight from the Pot, and I wish the same Knot was available in the Butterscothch Handle.
Unbeatable for a menthol hit
Snake Bite was a staple of my shaves last summer when we experienced prolonged and very warm weather for a change. I've tried numerous menthol shaving creams and soaps but Snake Bite is a staircase above them. Not only does the fact it contains no other fragrance components help but it must contain more menthol than the other products I've tried. If you pair shaving with this soap with cold water you get a really refreshing experience when shaving. I really looked forward to shaving with this during the heatwave. I get a great cooling effect on my face and neck for up to 20 minutes after the shave.
It is very easy to lather and delivers a generous cushion. I actually started trying more soaps after using this due to my successes with it.
A high quality soap at a very affordable price. The artwork on the tub is fantastic and the fragrance of the soap also stands out: it's very masculine and will appeal to those who love luxury brand 'leather' fragrances especially those who are familiar with one that shares part of its name with an Italian region! I think describing the fragrance as 'smoky' is a good call but it does have woody and sweet aspects too.
I found Inferno lathers very well with a boar brush and offers solid protection during the shave as well as leaving your face feeling nice. A great product overall and I'd buy it again.
One of the best performing soaps I have ever used. Slicker than you can imagine with an incredible face feel. My face feels smooth until the next day like I have been using a high end face mask. The scent is not for me, remaniscent of 90's Lynx in my mind. But that may be just me and you will love it! I cannot fault the product for that personal taste. All in all, well worth picking up a tub in this range.Report abuse
My Goldilocks brush!!
I really think I have found "The One" Like many of us, I've got multiple boar, badger and synthetics, but the Beehive really has taken my No. 1 spot.
Bigger, and with more backbone, than the 24mm barber handle, yet far more weildy than the 34mm F-400, with just enough scritch to be invigorating, yet super soft at the same time.
Sorry for gushing so much, but I think you'll have worked out I'm delighted with this brush!
Efficient and great value
This is an excellent razor, which I find shaves closely and smoothly. The balance is ideal, the stainless finish is as good as, or even better than some razors costing much more. The .84 gap makes this a very efficient razor, without it being too "aggressive". Thanks to Shaving Station for bringing this razor to the UK wet-shaving world.Report abuse
Superb tobacco AS
Whilst tobacco-scented products necessarily smell of "The Weed", many of them are just "weedy" in the underpowered sense, and lack that special aroma. Puros, on the other hand, has exactly the right amount of tobacco scent; not too little, but not overpowering. In fact, it's the perfect balance of distinctive scent and longevity that I've been searching for.Report abuse
Mild But High Performance
The performance is great, leaving my skin feeling moisturised and smooth all day. The scent is like barbershop, but lighter and maybe a little more floural. I would say 6/10 but it doesn’t last long so after a few minutes I’m ready for my EDT.Report abuse
A Thoroughly Excellent Shaving Experience
The Razorine is a great performer - it’s very efficient as well as being really good looking and a lot of fun to use.
The Kamisori style grip allows for variation and experimentation with technique and because it uses DE blades there’s a lot of scope for blade choice too.
I use my Razorine for head and face shaving and it gives an excellent result.
Every day I look forward to shaving with this razor!
Not bad at all
In short, a solid shavin soap. It’s a good soap that travels well with the tin and has solid performance. What let’s it down is the scent. Like almost all citrus soaps, the scent is a little too synthetic for me. Compared to Edwin Jagger’s citrus soap, this is very real and enjoyable, but it’s not as fresh and deep as I would like. Having said that it is still in my wash bag and will go where I go until it is empty!Report abuse
In short, I love it! I used it for two weeks travelling in China, and it performed great. It dries fast, fits in my wash bag easily and performs great. Returning home I tried my Muhle badger, and have now abandoned it for this! The stiffness takes a little adjusting to for a first time synth user (I was when I bought this) but that is an easy learning curve. The tips are so effortlessly smooth that it is impossible to go back to badger. Sure, the high end badgers are great, but you will pay £100 more! This brush is perfect and has not dropped a single hair yet! I wish I could say the same for my badgers!Report abuse
Rockwell 6S Stainless Steel
Well made, superior performance. This razor will last a lifetime.Report abuse
Never been a fan of boar brushes always thinking them badgers inferior cousins, well this SOC has completely changed my mind.
I love Fine American Blend aftershave and used it for a while. Bought some EDT from here which tops up your fragrance.Used this first after a good shave then used the aftershave later.Feels great to apply,non greasy and absorbs well.Will buying from you guys again.Just need to try the shaving soap now.Report abuse
First purchase from Shaving Station.Have used this before and it works simple as.Easy to use none greasy smells and feels great.You get a fantastic shave.Will be using you again.Report abuse
I was looking for something exactly like this - something to remind me of my grandfather. It's great - a lovely sweet tobacco scent with a hint of smokiness. Even my 4 year old daughter really likes it and keeps commenting on how nice it smells!Report abuse
Been meaning to try this for ages and it is excellent!
Loads very easily onto my, relatively soft, Fine synth, lathers up quickly and well. Although this seems quite a soft soap I've been using it a couple of weeks without making any obvious inroads. Performance is very very good, probably the slickest smoothest soap I've used, and I've used a few, giving a supremely smooth and comfortable shave. Personally, I am not a huge fan of citrus notes, but it is very subtle so would not put me off.
Perfect lather for 15-20sec (even whit my horse 26mm brush),easy glide for blade.the only minus for me is the scent:not bad just little powdery.anyway top product for me 4,5starReport abuse
This brush is just huge. Even the box it arrives in is huge. The brush fills it completely. Massive knot , supersoft but with just the right amount of splay and backbone. Great iconic item which stands out on your shelf and performs like a Ferrari. Delighted to own this brush and thanks to Shaving Station for the prompt and well-packaged delivery.Report abuse
A wonderful surpise
I love extremely aggressive razors, i have mixed and matched lots of different heads over the years to create some ridiculously aggressive open comb setups. I knew this was going to be a mild razor and i was intrigued by the design, having now used the razor the design is simple yet genius. The double open comb combination somehow traps the lather in the combs and means you can keep going over the same spot many times as the razor is sloc = self lubricating open comb.
I did my standard one pass shave with this razor with a brand new feather blade ( you do not need to worry about getting cut or nicked with this razor it is absolutely amazing the way the head works) so you can use your sharpest blades right off the bat i would say this razor is so good you would probably find it impossible to cut yourself if you tried. I am glad to see the razors of the 1930s and 1940s being made again- the company who made this razor originally was put out of business by having their factories bombed by the nazis in the 40s!
I have used hundreds of safety razors. this is one of the most surprising and pleasant experiences i have ever had its a razor that any shaving fan should add to their collection.
Great value for money, in fact great razor irrespective of price. Well made, good weight and very nice looking as well. The razor shaves very smooth leaving more lather on the face than a standard straight bar razor. I got a BBS shave with no irritation on my head and face. I found it very comfortable as a head shaver with the handle providing good grip.Report abuse
Another wonderful Wickham soap
I really like Wickham soaps, I have noticed that the 3 I have are the "C" one's. Club cola, Cashmere and this. Ialso have the matching balm. This my new favorite as Its a gorgeous scent as well as a great slick soap.Report abuse
Pinaud Classic Vanilla Aftershave
The Mrs got me this, i originally wanted the Original Clubman, all i can say is i'm so glad she did, it is fantastic, smells really sweet, and smells very expensive, i can't rate it high enough, i urge anybody to try it, especially if they like sweet fragrances, makes the skin feel great too.Report abuse
This is an amazing product made by Clubman. I have Fine Snake Bite and I thought that was amazing but this beats that many times over! Lots of menthol and eucalyptus, it really wakes you up and gives your face a real freeze feeling! Great for those hit summer days! 5*Report abuse
I'm very happy with this wax.Report abuse
