I thought I'd share what I've accumulated in about 9 months of some serious ADs. Blades and extras not pictured.
Left side is the Badger/Horse/Boar shelf, a few razors and Edt&A/S.

I know I know, I really need a Chubby 2 and a Horn handled Joris.

Absolutely stunning.

I see you have been quite ill with the disease we all share. It is highly contagious and I believe you have been infected worse than others.Smile

I had a Parker set and kept thinking I might do better. I was looking around online for a new brush in August and found B&B. PozzSka sold me a D01 Shavemac.
Went downhill quickly from there.

Well I traded a giant shopping bag of software and some hardware to a nice guy from the B&B in person. I bought him lunch in Seattle actuallyWink. He had it but never really used it and I gave him considerably more stuff in $$$ that he could actually enjoy, yet I wasn't using. It's a beautiful razor.

Favorites?
The Bullgoose Horse for one...
Keyhole 3 from Jarrod, one of my first brushes. I really got my research out of that one. The horn M&F's , that tiny Omega badger/boar, the Beaufort 4, the Emperor 1 etc. If I don't like them, they go..
TFS Bergamotto Neroli, MWF, Mdc, Speick stick
I Coloniali, GFT Spanish Leather, CS Vetiver, Veleiro
Splash wise, you can't beat the La Toja Manantiales and the Speick. Alt Innsbruck is awesome. Nothing like a firehose blast of GIT.

I showed the pictures to my wife and she's been looking at me funny ever since. I think I just heard the soft, gentle sound of purse strings tightening. Biggrin

I REALLY want your toggle - lovely looking piece of engineering. No blue tip?? Or did I miss it?

Wow very impressive. In particular I love the Gillette toggle. But the other razors are not too shabby.

I'm sure I have a blue tip around somewhere. Way too mild for me.

Ben- That mirror deal was very inexpensive. They are all over ebay. I think I paid 20 bucks shipped. You'd have to pay some extra postage.

The toggle is a great shaver, I've just been using the Brits and OCs lately. My rum dip keeps them clean.

Yeah I love the Hoffritz, I've been on the hunt for a handle for a while. It's too bad they crack.

Thanks for the tip Ray. Wink

Should I type anything in particular into the search bar or simply just "mirrored tray"?
