I just got this scuttle, made by a potter over at Etsy named Doug Smith. Unfortunately, just after I took the picture, I dropped the scuttle a few inches into the sink, probably because of its rather awkward low handle, and chipped the spout. Aaaarrrgh.

Quite a coincidence that John should post here at this time.

I got this group of soaps from John.

It looks like 2x what I actually bought becasue everything has been put into containers except for the stick.

I'll probably leave the stick open for a quite some time before using it. The scent is quite potent right now. Too much so.

Tomorrow I use the Valobra. Aaaaa

I received this vintage Somerset Simpson butterscotch brush. I have no idea what model it is. Its handle shape is a little different than that of the W2. Perhaps Gary can chime in with information.

Beautiful brush. I really like the knot shape on that brush. What is the diameter of the knot ?

Here's what was waiting on me when I arrived home a short time agoAaaaa. I have often said that given enough time many things will come full circle. I started out with a boar brush many years ago and I find that I have a growing fondness for boar brushes.

I received some heirlooms yesterday - straight razors that belonged to two of my maternal great-great-grandfathers, and a barber hone that belonged to my paternal great-grandfather.

Today I got a package from Mama Bear's Soaps, including sandalwood/vanilla for me, and lilac/lavender for part of one of my daughter's sweet sixteen presents.

What's the one on the left? Is that one of the 2010 customs?

Hey Jeff,

Those creams look interesting. Where did you purchase them from? Someone you know in Greece?

Thanks!

Beautiful brush. I really like the knot shape on that brush. What is the diameter of the knot ?

I don't have calipers, but just looking with a ruler, the knot appears to be 22mm.

I just got these two Schick razors, an I2 Hydro-Magic and a J3 Golden 500 Hydro-Magic, and some injector blades. My first foray into injector razor use.

I received two refill pucks of AOS Lavender Shave Soap this afternoon. I plopped one cake into a wooden bowl and it is set to go for tomorrow's shave. I love the scent and know that I am really going to like this soap. Biggrin

I got some pictures of those heirloom razors. You can check them out this gallery.

I also picked up some samples and a new puck of L'Occitane Cade this week.

Got started on the 1st or 2nd with a brand new Weber DLC Bulldog. I have really fallen in love with this razor. I have about 5 shaves on this thing so far, three with Supermax plat and 2 with Astra SP blade. Five No Nick / No Weeper shaves, Five BBS shaves, zero tugging or pulling. It is simply comfortable and sooth as silk. I do believe this razor might be my Nirvana
