traditionnal wet shaving - Razor Karve Shaving Company

Good day, New razor from Karve Shaving Company, The Christopher Bradley. Canadian razor, machined out of brass, you can customize the lenght of the handle and the efficiency buy buying different base plates. For today's shave, I used the plate C. to compare it to the Rockwell 6s, it would be between plate 4 and plate 5. the CB is an extremely smooth razor that gives a very close shave. It is quite surprising. Karve Shaving Co: https://karveshaving.com/

L&L Grooming/Chatillon Lux Bon Vivant

​This soap review features the 2016 artisan rookie of the year, L&L Grooming (https://www.landlgrooming.com/) and killer post shave master, Chatillon Lux (https://chatillonlux.com/). Even with the honors of being the best new artisan on the scene in 2016, Scott, from L&L Grooming continued his assault on wet shaver’s wallets by opening Declaration Brushworks (https://www.declarationbrushworks.com/), the premiere U.S. based artisan brush maker who hand ties every knot. L&L Grooming soaps are also available at Maggard Razors. Chatillon Lux is one of, if not the top aftershave artisan in the wet shaving world. Their collaborations are always successful and highly sought after. Bon Vivant is a warm and spicy blend with a crack of sharp citrus. The scent notes feature caramel, birch tar, black pepper, maple syrup, vanilla, patchouli, neroli, petitgrain, yuzu citrus, ginger, anise, juniper berry, white grapefruit, wormwood and coriander. What does all this boil down to? For me it opens with herbaceous citrus and some black pepper before the sweetness of the maple syrup and caramel enter the fold. At its base, it fades back to earthy where the patchouli, juniper berry and petitgrain present themselves. Scent is mid-strong both off the container and through the shave. Similar scents on the market include; ​Mickey Lee Soapworks Unforgiven or Phoenix & Beau Sanskrit. L&L Grooming’s Bison tallow soap base is among the very best performing soap bases on the market. Some have trouble dialing in the lather because it simply loves to be drowned with water. The results when dialed in though stand in the rare air of greatness though. Above average in all metrics. "Yogurty" dense cushion, hella slickness and residual slickness and spa like moisturizing post shave is what you can expect. With an ingredients like this (Stearic Acid, Water, Potassium Hydroxide, Avocado Oil, Vegetable Glycerin, Bison Tallow, Mango Seed Butter, Castor Oil, Fragrance, Sodium Hydroxide, Lanolin, Bentonite Clay, Hippophae Rhamnoides (Sea Buckthorn) Fruit Extract, Salix Alba L. (White Willow) Bark Extract, Vitis Vinifera (Grape) Seed Extract, Phenoxyethanol, Caprylyl Glycol, Sorbic Acid,) its no wonder. Similar soap bases in terms of performance are: Mickey Lee Soapworks and Tallow + Steel.

Karve Shaving : The Christopher Bradley Razor

At long last I finally have a CB razor in my Den! And I must say I'm impressed. Price, finish, weight are all major pluses for me. Have a look for yourself though!!!! https://karveshaving.com Contact me at froogle_jimmy@hotmail.com

Hello again! Today we cover this unique razor a G.E Jones Shake Sharp razor! Produced in 1945-1950s it had a good production run, releasing 2 versions of the razor, the first version was gold plated with a bakelite handle, and the top cap came off completely to change the blade. The 2nd version has a slide locking mechanism that is demonstrated in the video. Two versions are available in 22k gold and Chrome plating.

The G.E Jones is a single edge razor that takes standard double edge blades! It is also self honing! Beautiful design and great construction.

L&L grooming and Chatillon Lux come together to create a beautiful, sweet tobacco scent. Unconditional surrender has notes of: Amber, Tonka Bean, Amyris, Cedarwood, Agarwood, Vetiver, Cigar Tobacco, Black Tea, Jasmine, and geranium.

The soap is a very soft soap. For those of you that haven't tried L&L Grooming, the bison tallow formula is great. It is a thirsty lather, but once dialed in. It provides amazing protection, and glide. The post shave feel is the best I've ever felt. It is up there in price, this particular tub was about $25, but you do get what you paid for.

The Salve from Chatillon Lux is really great, my only complaint is it comes off oily, or greasy but it goes into the skin very well.

I hope you enjoy!
