Traditional Shaving Company’s 100 series badger brush is a solid, middle-of-the-road brush that is another “no drama” product for me: a solid performer that uses good quality parts. I admit that I can be kind of rough on brushes but this brush has been holding up quite nicely. It’s dropped maybe one or two hairs, pleasantly stiff without being too “scritchy,” and I haven’t had to deal with a funky smell.

I’ve been meaning to mention Green Mountain shaving soaps for a while. Green Mountain is one of several artisinal shaving soap makers that have appeared on the scene recently (no one can convince me that “old school” shaving is a shrinking niche!). Green Mountain soap’s funky-shaped pucks are triple-milled and a generous 4oz. so you know they’re going to last a long time and are a great value. They use essential (vs. fragrance) oils and I think they’ve struck a good balance between strength and longevity for scent.

Sharpologist is proud to announce “Scent Off 2013.” The challenge: create a (“hot process”) shaving soap with a seasonal scent that also performs well and even looks good! You have until October 7 to come up with a scent, blend the ingredients, and produce at least 10 pucks for our judges.
