3D Printed Shaving Bowls & Followup

I've been focused on 3D printing projects for Wet The Face. We had another surge in sales with our stands that Chuck created. The 7-slot version seems to be the biggest seller right now. I can design elementary things but when it comes to complicated objects well, I turn to Chuck.

I was searching for a shaving bowl and came across one that looked like one piece of rope shaped into a small bowl. I thought this just might work let me print it and see. It did a good job of making lather but the soap that did not dissolve was found in the rope texture of the design. Then I came across one that I've seen on many maker sites. This design seemed to be the favorite with a ton of downloads counts. So I tried that one and you can see it in action because I used it in today's YouTube video. I have to say it worked very well.

The SE Noch Razor Review

Finally, a new razor was released by Occam's Razor Team called SE Noch. I had no idea this was going on until my friend Dan pointed it out to me via email. I just had to order one since it was in my price range. The list price is $195.00 but on sale now for $59.98. I would have NEVER purchased it at the higher price.

The packaging has not changed over the years from the Occams Razor line and I had no problems with it. This is a single-edge razor and takes the same blades as the other two razors I have from the Occam's team the original Occams and the N.A.N.O. I happened to use the Feather Pro Guard in all of them.

Past Razor Reviews & Nivea Deep

Today, we will look past the shaving creams and soaps and concentrate on hardware. I've done over 480 videos so far with most of our new subscribers having no idea of the past razor reviews I've done. So here is a look back at just some of the ones that I've reviewed.

Listed below are searchable videos on my YouTube channel which I've shown in this video. If you want me to use any of them let me know in the comments section and the one that is asked for the most will be the one I use in the future.

eShave White Tea

Today I use one of the better scented shaving creams called White Tea from eShave. If you have never tried an eShave product maybe now would be a good time. eShave was created in 1996 by Danielle Malka 28 years ago. I would consider this a high-end product with a high-end price but in this guy's opinion, it is well worth it.

You don't need a lot on the brush to create a great lather, nor do you need to use a brush this shaving cream is good with both methods. I prefer a brush and it handles it with perfection. The leather was amazing, it got right into the beard and provided great coverage. The slickness and glide reach the top of the scales providing an irrational free shave. The post-shave feel was another chart-topper.

Gillette Heritage DE & Aveeno Gel

Today we flip everything around. We ditch the shaving soap for shaving cream gel in a can. Aveeno is the shaving gel of choice. We then decided to shave with a DE razor which came out a few years ago called the Gillette Heritage. This was offered on Amazon by Gillette which received lots of attention from the wet shaving community. It came in the classic brown clamshell case with a rich brown interior lining but it was not real leather. This was a closed-comb three-piece DE Razor with a premium, chrome-plated handle, the kind from years ago.

FairHope Soap Company / Him - Key West

We change it up in this week's video. Today I'm returning to the Rockwell Razor T1 which took about 2 years to finally start shipping. Once it was released a few months later they found an issue with the internal rod which I think was responsible for keeping things together. It would break for no reason so they fixed that and sent me another one. ( I never had an issue with the original one )

We are also using a soap from FairHope Shaving Soap Company called Him the scent is Key West. It's one of the best I've had the pleasure of using. Unfortunately, I looked at the website and they don't offer that scent anymore. Next, the brush I'm using today is the Frank Shave brush a short handle with a great backbone synthetic just an all-around great brush.

Shaving With Sapone Di Paolo

Today's shaving soap is one that I've seen in my den many times but neglected to use for a long while. I can't give you a reason why it just worked out that way. The soap I'm talking about is Sapone Di Paolo. So many companies start out under one name and then as the company grows things change and so does Sapone Di Paolo. Its new name is called Eleven. I'm sure the formula for the soaps has changed but this soap seems to still be in the public eye as a collector's item and for good reason it's amazing.

Just watch the video and you'll see how thick rich and creamy this lather is and how it gets right into the beard with perfect coverage. The slickness and glide are above average providing protection from irritation allowing you to go over trouble spots without fear. The post-shave feel was also above average.

Shaving with The Flying Mango

Flying Mango shaving soap is back! Today's shaving soap was introduced in 2015 and was supposed to be a limited edition made in Italy by Saponificio Varesino exclusively for BullGoose Shaving. It utilizes Saponificio Varesino's latest Beta 4.3 formula with added mango butter for superior skin conditioning.

The scent is complex. At first whiff, you get hints of tobacco leaves. The top note is citrusy and slightly balsamic, the body aromatic with a hint of floral and lavender while the base is woody and musky.

As you can see by the video this soap lathers pretty well gets right into the beard and provides wonderful coverage. The slickness and glide are above average and provide protection from irritation.

Shaving & Turner Classic Movies

For my first shave of 2024, I selected one of the soaps I use off-camera and on. It has been around for over 460 years, but not much has changed in the way of formula. I'm talking about De Vergulde Hand Shaving Soap. I found out they have a line of additional products like the aftershave balm I'd like to try. So already 2024 is starting out on a wonderful note.

If you never heard of this soap my advice would be to give it a try. One word before you purchase, if you looking for a scent that knocks you over the head then this one is not for you. What it does have is a rich creamy lather with plenty of slickness and glide allowing you to have a carefree shave void of irritation. The post-shave feel is also impressive.
