I like my Ox Horn and sandalwood comb or just a sandalwood comb.  I need a pretty good gap to get through.  I will never use a plastic comb.  TJX and Ross always seem to have some kinds of beard stuff on clearance - at least near me - (neck ties and boxers also don’t do well near me).  Especially after the gift giving holidays.  Some brands never heard of and some name brands.  I have picked up beard shampoo, beard balm and beard oil sometimes on double clearance.  Beard shampoo is nice to use and is non drying.  I use it once or twice a week.  I use beard oil after every shower and brush it in with a boar brush.  If I ever run out of beard oil - I am going to make it myself.  There is a re-fill store that sells the oil from bulk containers near me along with essential oils.  I am saving the bottles for the project!  Beard oil is nice if you are going to have a long beard.  Ok to get a beard trim by a pro every once in a while.  If you see a guy with a nice shape beard ask him where he goes to have it trimmed.  Many are dyi; but some barbers have interest in beards. Think through if you want to commit to shave cheeks and/or neck lines.  I did not.  Enjoy it; not all can grow full beards.

I’ve tried several different beard oils over the years on my winter beard and never really been happy until last year when I tried some Captain Fawcett. Here’s their website but I think you can find it on Amazon too. Decent scent. I’ve got Barberism and Booze and Baccy

Awesome! I will have to try out some of those recommended beard oils as well!

Boar brushes, brass razors, and hard pucks ARE traditional wet shaving. Everything else is modern day fluff for the girly men.

It's like the blues, the best stuff comes from dead guys.
