Hi folks,

Hope you're all doing great and enjoy the weather (it's very hot, not used to that here).

Just found out that my wife bought me a another razor online, she wasn't planning on telling me until it arrived but I had to go through my history in search of something when I found out.

A Merkur Digress XL with a SS knob. No it's not a Mergress but a Digress, same principle, the knob get replaced and realigned it seems. Can't wait for it to arrive!

What a sweetheart, she loves my hobby, knows quite a bit about razors (especially straights) and likes the smelly stuff that I use. Oh yes forgot to mention, she did use my card to buy it, well you can't have it all I suppose, it's still a woman ;-)

Snuff, this is a handsome razor and your wife must be commended for her good taste. That the razor is a gift from your wife makes it special.
By the way, who makes the Digress? In the past I have had the Mergress, but I know nothing about the Digress.
Good show on a fine gift.
Stay well.

Thanks everyone, My wife has good taste, that's why she married me ;-)

I don't know who exactly makes the Digress but you can find it at http://www.thegentlemansgroomroom.com

I praise myself lucky that my wife shares my interest in wet shaving, downside is that every time I sell of trade a razors you can be sure questions will be asked, she knows exactly what razor is gone in the blink of a eye.

She even made razor rolls for the Belgian Traditional Whet Shavers Club just out of interest and a good job she did. Have a nice shave guys!

IMHO I like this one a bit more then the Mergress, dare I say more elegant? Got here in 3 days once it was made, packaging was excellent, even if they would have dropped it out of a airplane I'm sure it would still have been ok. (in a box with lots of bubble wrap around it, in a very thick padded envelope and a sturdy box to finish), also very friendly and constant up to date information from the shop owner (there was a waiting list).

don't want to promote anything but I believe when you're happy with someone's service it's ok to mention it.

That's very nice. Now here's the question. What nice thing are you going to do for your wife? She deserves something special after that, even if it was purchased with your credit card.

I was actually thinking about writing in my post: and now the wait is for what she will ask for in return ;-)

I know what she likes and I'm always on the lookout for her as she is for me. And I shave her legs, but that probably doesn't count as that often leads to a nice thing for me ;-)

Seriously, if I can get here something nice I will. I actually have shaved a second time with the new razor today, I like it.
