Asylum English Creams -Scent & Performance Descriptions

The Asylum English Shaving creams arrived about a week ago and we have been peppered with questions regarding ingredient lists, scent descriptions, performance and manufacturer. I'll do my best to answer the first three questions but due to non-disclosure agreements, cannot directly answer the last question. There are currently five different scents of Asylum English Shaving cream all with slightly different ingredient lists. They are all soft creams similar in texture to Geo Trumper creams and, they all have great performance. These creams would be a great choice for straight razor shavers due to their incredible slickness and, they would...

Paradigm 17-4 Stainless Steel Razors have landed

The long anticipated Paradigm 17-4 Stainless Steel razors have arrived at BullGoose. Paradigm Shaveware continues to be on the cutting edge of razor technology. The Paradigm 17-4 razor utilizes an extremely hard variety of stainless steel that takes a nice mirror finish and that is also resistant to scratches.

A Modern Gem Style Razor -The Rocnel SE-G

Gem safety razors were contemporaries of Gillette safety razors and they competed directly against them from the early 1900's through the 1970's.

However, enough people loved them and held onto vintage models that these same corner stores continue to carry GEM blades to this day.
