It's hard to believe that it's been over a year since I joined the Nook. I think back at my first razor (Micro-touch One) and my entry level soaps and brushes.  Rolleyes

For better or worse, the den has settled down and I am feeling really good about cruising along, not feeling the urge to purchase every new soap that hits the market.

So here it is. (I say it, but it's really "they", because products spilled over my first shelf along time ago.  Blush

Impressive but it looks like RAD hasn't hit you hard enough.

You are correct. I haven't been bitten by that bug. I like my four razors. They run the gamut from mild and forgiving to extra aggressive. Straight razors still interest me and I predict that some day I'll branch out in that direction.

I know this probably isn't the place but since you have both the Chubby brushes I'm looking at purchasing, could you tell me the difference between the "Silvertip Badger" and the "Manchurian" Chubbies? Also, which do you prefer?

Start with this article: http://wetshavingproducts.com/badger-brush-hair-grades/
I think it may answer most of your questions. The "Chubby" moniker of course refers to the handle-style, knot shape/size only; 1-3 smallest to largest.
As far as my preference? Difficult, but if I had to choose only one, it'd be the CH2 2 Band Silvertip.  Badger

 Thank you for the info, I think the CH2 2band Silvertip would be my preference also.
