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.

Welcome to “round 2″ of the first Sharpologist “Scent Off!” We’re taking the next few weeks to challenge artisan shaving soap makers to come up with a Fall/Winter “seasonal” scent, judged by our panel of illustrious wet shaving experts. Last week we started the competition off with a soap from Mystic Water. This week we continue the judging with an entry from Barrister and Mann, “Hallows.”

Welcome to the first post for the 2013 “scent off!” A few weeks ago Sharpologist invited shaving soap artisans to crate a “seasonal” (fall/winter) shaving soap scent. Six artisans made the deadline and our judges have been busy shaving with the entries! We will be showcasing one entry per week for the next six weeks. This week: Mystic Water.

Shaving, for many men today, is a chore. It’s something like brushing your teeth. It’s a thing that you do every day and are happy just to get it over with. Except for the discomfort, the bad results, and the ever growing expense of buying razors and throwing them away. Then there’s there promise of a return to a better, golden past where men were men and shaving was done with razor sharp, naked steel. Shave like your great-granddad! I don’t know about your great-grandpa, but mine wore a long beard. Probably because shaving was a pain even back then.
