I seem to have gone a little brush crazy this month, here's what I have on the way:

Vie-Long Beehive LE in mixed badger/horse
Bestshave.net's Turkish No. 6 AND No. 7 in blue (they are so cheap and get good reviews. If they really are good, I'll get more experience with horse hair, if not, I'll likely make more kits for friends to try out wetshaving, I'd say it's a win-win!)
Semogue Owner's Club boar brush in Cherry wood. Found a deal too good to pass up on shaving.ie so I had to go ahead and get it

4 new brushes this month, and if I can find a vintage handle, I have a 24mm TNG Silvertip knot waiting to be fitted as well.

Also expecting some soaps (Pre de Provence, Razorock XXX & Nepoleon's Violet) and an Omega razor/brush with the Vie-Long Beehive stand from Phil and some Arko with the Turkish brushes.

The month just started and I've already nearly bought myself out!

A Gillette Big Fellow. I've wanted one of these for a long time. Now I just need to find an Open Comb Aristocrat, a 1973 T4 Adjustable, and a Rottbart OC, and I'm set. I've missed out on two Rottbarts and two T4's in the last few weeks.

This was unanticipated!!. A big bottle of Osage Rub, two sample bottles of Floid Blue (courtesy of SharpSpine and Daccpa) and an AdP starter set from churchilllafemme (thanks!!). I also got a T4 Tech (I think it's english given the handle) from eBay. That just leaves a 73 Adjustable and I should have my birth year razors from Gillette

Thanks fellas. I appreciate it!!!

Wow, that Osage sure did make a quick trip. Did Duane overnight it? I think you and Phil both live in the post office, just on different coasts!

Enjoy it all and look great for that first day at the new job. Which is when btw?

My anticipated score is a couple of Semogue brushes that I requested as b'day presents. I'm pretty sure that at least one of them will show up, but I'm hoping that since they are so affordable that I'll get both.

Semogue Owners Club -- Boar -- Cherry
Semogue 830

If I get both, then that will bring my Semogue collection up to 5. Johnny and Emanuel still won't have any competition from me, but I'm quite pleased with my little Semogue family. If they both show up I'll have to do a family picture a la Emanuel and Johnny!

Got this off the Bay tonight (birth year and quarter adjustable, it was the last one I needed to complete my set) and missed on a TTO Aristocrat by $1. Oh well, it was user grade and uncased and I'll find another one of those!!
