While I was doing research and writing a possible future article, I discovered that @mantic named/popularized blade buffing. Excerpt from the article below: "Blade buffing was a step in the late Charles Roberts's Method Shaving, though it was taken to extremes there, involving up to 100 strokes in a single spot. @mantic has credited Charles Roberts as the inspiration for his "blade buffing" technique." I had no idea. Mantic isn't one to toot his own horn, but he should be recognized for popularizing that. That got me thinking, "is there anything that I have contributed to the wider world of wet shaving, that people probably don't know?" Yes. A long time ago (2012), there was no such thing as a hybrid knot brush. There was Bulb, Fan, and Flattop. There were also one or two discussions about knot shapes where there was a mention of a bulb/fan hybrid knot. Those comments were about knots that were intended to be either bulb or fan shaped, but had characteristics of the other shape. I decided that a "hybrid knot" was a thing (or ought to be), and posted about it. It didn't exactly revolutionize wet shaving, but most wet shavers probably accept that a hybrid knot is a legitimate, independent knot style. Even Lee Sabini (Morris & Forndran, Brad Sears, Rooney) will make hybrid knots to order nowadays. Bernd Blos at Shavemac won't. I asked. Like Mantic, I wasn't the first person to talk about it or do it, but I was the one who named or popularized it and got it into the collective conciousness of the forums. @Bama Samurai is the inventor of the "30 day rule," 1 brush, 1 soap, 1 brand of blades, 1 razor, 30 Days. I have seen this shaving technique/philosophy spread to other shaving forums, and if someone mentions that a newbie should follow 'the 30 day rule,' people know what is being discussed. Charles Roberts of Enchante "invented" Manchurian badger. When Charles Roberts first offered these brushes, that were made exclusively for Enchante ( as they were, at the time, one of the highest volume Simpson retail outlets in N. America ) they were labeled 'Extra Super'. However, Charles was trumpeting that this was extra special rare badger bristle ( which it may well have been ) that came out of the colder climate of Manchuria. On the original forum some of us started to refer to them as 'Manchurians' and CR quickly took the nudge and told David Carter he wanted subsequent specimens to be actually labeled that way; 'Manchurian badger'. I don't know who came up with "High Mountain White." Any other notable examples in this, or other shaving forums?
