[font=Times New Roman][size=medium]A few months ago I sent my son, who lives in Los Angeles, a few of my SOTD photos to look at, and was pleasantly surprised to learn that he'd been wet shaving for about four years. I knew that he couldn't afford high-end equipment, so when I started selling my DE's for straights, I sent him my Feather AS-D2. He has a very inexpensive synthetic brush, and has never even tried a badger knot, so I decided to purchase a Zen Shave brush for him. I have two of Rob's brushes, purchased after viewing Celestino's gorgeous Zen Shave brushes, and really like his work. The handle is Thuja burla with a 26mm Silvertip knot. I also included a few of my favorite soaps, hoping that he'll become a lifetime wet shaver.

Rob does great work! Looks fantastic!

Your son should really consider wet shaving as a pleasurable way to relax before all the din of the day comes in or before the evening closes!
