    I tried that once, couldn't handle it, then removed the battery and got a much better shave.

    I think it works very well with all soaps and most creams. It didn't work well initially with the very slick creams (Trumpers, Art of Shaving) where its lubricant and those creams resulted in not getting a close shave. After its lubricant decreased with usage, it was excellent with all creams.

    Cleaning it with the Razorpit, I got about 40 shaves out of one cartridge.

    Absolutely. I use it without the battery vibrating it. This machine is very soft. Love it
    Have I told you about the scent of jasmine? Have I spoken about the smell of the sea? The earth is scented. And I perfume myself to enhance what I am. That's why I can not wear a perfume that bothers me. Perfuming is an instinctive wisdom. And like all art, it requires some knowledge of yourself..."

    Fascinating thanks.
    If I can get up the courage, I may insert a battery and try it again.

    I count 40 brushes - would you not be the go-to source for advice on badger brushes?

    Nice!

    I'm not sure how I would ever be able to decide which razor or brush to use, you have so many nice choices!

    I'd love to be able to try a BBS-1 some day.

    Cheers!

    are you on the list to get a bbs1? they really are that good, but the secondary market prices are entirely too much.

    As far as I know the list has been closed for some time. I emailed the proprietor of the LASCO and asked if I could be informed when the list would open again, and he said he would let me know. I am skeptical though.

    I do have a Wolfman, so I can muddle through...

    I just got a Muhle R41 and oh man is this thing amazing! Just shaved my head with it this evening and I swear it was a religious experience. Followed it up with a few splashes of Fine: Snake Bite aftershave...icy!
