Reposting from the other thread since they did arrive in February:

I got my order from Mike's Natural today. I got a tin of Barbershop, a stick of Orange, Cedarwood & Black Pepper, and two bath soaps as a Valentine's gift for my wife. It also came with a sample of Peppermint and Rosemary shave soap.

I also recently received a sample of Captain's Choice Original Bay Rum and a new bottle of Speick AS Lotion.

A new razor rack. Not too great, but it was very cheap. I'm not sure whether or not I'll use it. I may just PIF it.

I still have some left over from an eBay sale and think they are the best blades in the world. Congratulations and use them well.

I agree. For me nothing else compares. Fortunately I have 240 of them now.

That's awesome! I bought 4 of them a while back and I thought they were a great blade. There are no current production blades that can stack up to them.

Got a nice aftershave haul from Phil!

I went to the supermarket and bought a Proraso brush.

[Image: 13348082dm.jpg]

It was Teiste's fault. He and is #*&@ reviews... Facepalm
Laughing124Laughing124Laughing124

It is a really big brush, only a tad smaller than the #48. Measuring with a calliper, this brush has a 26mm knot and a 59mm loft.
It has also a big amount of backbone, that will easily appeal to facelatherers.
