    too bad I couldn't take good pics of the insides of the insert and the case - they were far messier than the outside but cleaned up equally well. Would've taken me 2 hours manually for the whole lighter - did it in 3x 5minutes with that little machine - without getting my hands dirty and I could go on about my work while the cleaner was doing its thing :cool:

    Just wait until I post the pics of me cleaning my DEs - we'll have to do a group-buy afterwards :D :cool:

    @Rich: have you been taking advantage of that C&E-sale? :drool

    Arko twins?

    6 tubes Fax Sport shaving cream
    6 tubes Fax Sensitive shaving cream

    I'll keep 1 of each variety for myself, and send away the others to a few special friends of mine here. This brand seems to be a twin of Arko shaving cream, except that the tubes are smaller, but the packaging is quite similar. I took a test lathering just now with the Fax Sensitive, and it seems like it has a richer lather, and a better substance--gosh is that possible?

    I'll tell you one thing, bud - they really spoil you with the presentation....usually I'm not one to care, but these guys really do it right :happy088

    I am very impressed, however, with the quality of this terms of feel, ergonomics, and softness of the bristle. Its exactly what I hoped it will be - let's see how the lathering goes :D

    Speaking of the case - are these suitable for use as travel containers?

    Never tried....I am not sure how they would hold up to severe abuse. I just put mine to the is almost "ornamental"

    I have often wondered what the AP series is like. I never see it mentioned. Same specs....just a frosted glass handle

    The AP series looks awesome, I really like the looks of the handle.....however it doesn't seem as ergonomic/useful as the BK handles.

    As a BK8 owner I can fore tell the future TJ you will never sell that brush again.

    Michael has ruined me. :D

    I made a lather (two actually :drool) with the BK4, as a test. I already have a BK8 on the way, from a trade.......and I am now convinced I need the BK12 as well :sad027:scared011

    Floppy depending on what you are comparing it to....compared to a SR 3XXX, these are mops. However, I am growing somewhat fond of floppy brushes (thats not to say I don't like a good, dense, firm brush); its a different kind of luxury. I just like brushes :D

    The Kent is very addicting, be careful ;)

    Discount code: GBK1777 (tell them Michael sent you, so he gets his commission check :happy001)

    Back from Texas! I feel like John Wayne now. I bought a nice pair of Justin boots in Hillsboro, and got some baccy at Heroes & Legacies in Austin.

    The coolest thing, though, was being able to bring back my grandpa's rifles that my mom left me when she died in '01. My dad had been saving them for me, and I brought both home on this trip.

    Oh, and when I got back, I had some QED Wild Rose soap waiting I got from Larry Bob over at TOP. I was supposed to have a Tony Miller strop, but no show. I hope it is at the P.O., since we had our mail held while we were gone. I'm a little nervous because there was no pickup card in the bundle. :confused:

    Thanks Joe,

    I deleted my post, I forgot about the thread on the Kent brushes and just re-read it.

    I have the B&B in finest and a Shavemac 23mm Silvertip, comparing the two my B&B is quite a bit floppier than the Shavemac...not that that's a bad thing, just different as you had mentioned.

    Reading Michaels thread on the Kents, it sounds like the B&B and the BK8 seem to be quite similar, which may save me some money as that is the one I was considering.

    If I do end up getting one I will make sure to tell them Michael sent me and you too..:D

    BK12 ????

    OH No ! Big Bigger Biggest , Humongous Giganticus !!! that is what the BK12 is.

    I didnt know you lathered your Chest aswell TJ ! :rofl :rofl
    that would be the only reasons to get a BK12.
    It is seriously huge TJ , I would really like you to do a test with the BK4 and BK8
    and specially on cream consumption I find I can make easy lather with the Muhle superbadger with a certain amount of cream but the same cream just gets eaten up by the BK8 so the BK8 def. needs more cream to generate the same amount of lather would that make sense ?

    Law of lather making.

    X equals Knotsize versus Y Badger hair type * amount of lather cream density in milligram = Lather amount in volume ?

    You be my Math prof. TJ and try it out BK4 vs BK8

    Congratulations on the BK4, Joe!
    I've got one of those too and it's a GREAT brush, I simply adore it!
    Have fun! ::
