Ok Nookers, who received shaving gear for Christmas... ?

Not including things I purchased for myself leading up to the festive season, I received nothing shaving related. So, I'm relying on some vicarious excitement of others' Christmas hauls.

I'd like to see a "FROM WHO" and "WHAT ITEMS" type format.

Please indulge me!

My beloved wife delivered the ceramic dish of MWF and 100 Shark SC blades to me ! My brother got me a shaving kit for travel. I got him a straight with a strop. My son got a Razorock Slab, and the son in law a R 89 razor from me. We're sending our nephew to California, and he's leaving with a Fatboy and Astra blades.

I sent a link on both the MWF and the C&S No.88 to the family, I wonder why the MWF is the one that made the cut. Laughing1

Lots of nice shave gear.

I received a Rod Neep brush. I purchased it new from Mixershave. Michael was great to deal with. Unbeknownst to me my son in law to be turned a soap dish from the same type of burl. He even put in a puck of C&E Nomad, probably my fav soap.

I also got a Muhle Rytmo set. This was purchased new from alabamalawyer and Chris was also great. I do love the Nook B/S/T forum. My wife added a small puck of Muhle aloe vera soap. This setup is for our camp where it's small footprint will be appreciated.

From my son John, the CADE Shaving Cream in the tube and the L'Occitane tube key.

From my wife Donna the CADE Balm and the CADE Extra Rich Shave Cream in the jar. I used the cream in the jar for my Christmas shave and it was divine.

Thanks Ben Blush I missed the Mudder when it was initially released, but Pasteur Pharmacy in NYC (where I work) had some stock left. I stopped over there the other day and cleaned out Leon's supply at both of his stores Biggrin

This Christmas was more about soaping than shaving for me, but I did receive a Wet Shaving Products boar brush from my daughter:

I also got some Christmas money that I am thinking of putting toward an iKon Slant.
