Looking Back at Shaving Soap Tins


I remember when I was just starting off in wet shaving we had so many artisans using tins back then they had this nostalgic feel and they looked pretty cool too. I had a den full of them but since then most artisans have switched to plastic tubs and like most wet shavers I’ve thinned my collection of tins and shaving soaps over the years considerably. Last week I was waiting for some new products to come in the mail for review and I was thinking I should go back again and take another look at my tin collection. I still have a few which I keep around and use from time to time andI to my surprise I still had one that I've never used. Once I found it I knew I had to do a review. For this review one would need to know the following:

• Who’s shaving soap was it?
• Has this dried out over time?
• Would it still lather,
How would the performance be after all this time dormant?

Well, let’s find out.

Artillery Sidewinder X1 V4.0 Experience



After my Creality reality from a few years ago, I was disappointed, to say the least in how things turned out using the CR10S Pro. I was pretty impressed when I first got it. it's a stunning design and way better than the previous offering in the product line. The Pro indicated that for the higher price you get a more finished product that could handle just about anything you throw at and it did up until I discovered it had a flaw which was why I could not print TPU anymore and was the main reason for writing this article and why I must move off this platform.

Caliber 5 Edge Razor and Blades

Company: Personna
Product: Caliber 5 Edge Razor and Blades

If you ever have seen my YouTube reviews you’ll know the one thing that's been consistent are the razor blades I use in all my double-edge razors which happen to be Personna Blue. I found them to perform the best for me and since I’m always testing hardware or software this keeps one aspect consistent and lets me know what I should expect.

Well, it turns out Personna was watching as well and reached out to let me know they had something they wanted me to review. I explained to them I would be truthful in my review and if they still felt they wanted to send me something I would be happy to do it. In about 4 to 5 days a package arrived from them containing a few things.
