    Thanks, guys. It was @twhite that sent me down the path to wedge razors. They are great to shave with.

    Yeah, I know they say it's kind of a bipolar scent, in that you either love it or hate it - but I absolutely love it and my wife always comments positively so that's a double win for me because that's not 100% of the time for all soaps. I agree that it does last forever (in a good way). I picked up a barely used one as well from someone else in the forum who wasn't a fan but that one will have to wait a long while . I use their shave stick too - larger than most competitors but I think it lathers slightly better than Arko (scent blows Arko out of the water of course, but I don't dislike the soap smell of Arko). Palmolive is decent, La Toja works well and has a subtle appealing scent, but their travel case leaves much to be desired. I'll probably add it to a travel stick container like the Palmolive. <sorry that was a side discussion lol>.

    Yes it is indeed a razorock handle - "super knurl." (
    It's usually sold out but apparently is back in stock. Great heft and phenomenal knurling. You can't go wrong with it. I seem to be reaching for it more often. Pick one up

    I saw Williams Beer's Safari brush the other day and I then kept thinking about my Safari shave set until I caved today and went with Safari instead of Old Spice this Sunday.
