One came towards the end of last month and one came today. Two of the finest products I've ever used. I have done reviews on both in their designated section.

Arrived yesterday:

The Semogues LE 2012 from our comrade tgutc, who was vey kind to send me some blades and a sample of the Jack Black cream, too. Thanks Travis!

A couple of blades from Gillette, that, in theory, are discontinued, but a friend in Manaus managed to grab some for me, alongside a extremely rare national cream, Ravor for men. Well, 4 of those. A Schick hydro-magic with original box, already cleaned up, and a artisan soap based on olive oil. Very stronglyb eucaliptus-scented. Lets see how it works...

I am happy to hear that you did buy the Baume.be products and are enjoying the quality. They are terrific!
~Richard

After three years of seeing these in a display case at an antique shop, not selling, the time came and I made a deal with the owner.

Both are now shaving two days since purchase. Some cracks in the scales and a chip and some minor corrosion on the blades were fixed or ignoredLightbulb. I cannot readily buy really nice old razors so I use the time otherwise spent with TV and renew the less than perfect for my use.
Have fun!

Finally got all my stones in one place. Ready for honing.
Glad I got the DMT8c now, none of the Naniwa stones were flat!
