It hasn't arrived yet, but will probably be here in the next few days. I'm looking forward to trying it out.

Since I was running out of stock containers for my shaving soaps, I picked up 3 of the Ikea Grundtal stainless steel ones.

I've seen a couple like that on eBay. I haven't searched elsewhere.

It's too bad that my only experience with a 404 was with a used one I bought for just a few dollars on eBay - and I got what I paid for, a terrible brush that shed all over and was canned.

Yes it is.Biggrin The nice photo was provided to me by Emanuel. So actually, the one in the picture is not mine, but mine looks just like it.

I gave it a good shampoo this morning. It is no Duke 2 or a Semogue SOC, but first impressions are it will make a good brush for my rotation. Only time will tell.

Johnny, I have had one for a couple of years now and it stays in my rotation. It is a great workhorse of a brush that didn't break the bank when I purchased it. Enjoy. Thumbsup

Here's a couple of extra pics of the Tech I picked up.

[Image: 7494120834_1af298e433_z.jpg]

I do have a small favor to ask. On the box it says it comes with a Stainless Steel Blade. Does anyone know which blade it might have come with and where it would have been positioned in the box? I think this one will be the first "collector" I have ever bought and I want a blade to go in with it.

A few things that have come in either very late June or just in the last day.

Some P.160 from a great friend and a tub of Proraso green (old) as well as a good sized sample chunk of Klar Kabinett from syngent.
