Asylum Colonia Soap & Matching Aftershave by Saponificio Varesino Are Here

Shortly before our holiday hiatus, we received our shipment of Asylum Colonia Shaving Soap and Matching aftershave from Italy. The Shaving Soap is made by Saponificio Varesino utilizing their latest Beta 4.3 formula and, it is excellent. The scent is a standard Colonia scent similar in profile to Aqua di Parma and is suitable for year round use. It is subtle, sophisticated and not at all cloying.  Because the shaving soap is a triple milled soap, it will last a very long time making the cost per shave extremely economical. Unlike many triple milled soaps, Asylum Colonia easily builds lather...

The Shave Soap Bowl To Survive The Apocalypse

Most shave soap tins will dent if you look at them funny or give them the hairy eyeball. Heaven help you if you bang your razor on it or gasp...drop it. The consequences can be even worse if you have a ceramic bowl rather than a tin...sharp shards of ceramic are not a pleasant thing to have in the bathroom. You can always go with a wooden bowl but, wood and water do not make for a great long-term relationship. Plastic? Fugly! And don't forget the whales and sea turtles. The BullGoose Bowl is different! It is machined out of...

Paradigm Secondary Market is Booming!

Paradigm Secondary Market is Booming!

Paradigm Shave Ware burst upon the wet shaving scene a little over a year ago. They specialize in expertly machined and engineered safety razors that are decidedly different from other razors on the market.

That is when things get really crazy. In the past few weeks, customers have told me how they sold a previous release on Ebay for a huge profit -One customer sold his Titanium I razor...

Shaving Forums and Why You Should Join

A secondary benefit to shaving forums is that they have a section where you can buy and sell used (usually barely used) products. This takes the risk out of buying a new razor, shaving brush or soap. If it does not work well for you, you can list it on the B/S/T and recoup most of your investment. This then makes it possible to experiment with a wide range of products before you zero in on what works best for you.
