He best thing about our hobby is our community - hands down. Getting a great shave at a good price (editorial: bwahahahahaha! Good price...) is secondary to the relationships we have with one another.

No BlackBlade? Fooey. You need to have a talk with this 'friend'.

But seriously, that is an AMAZING gift.

Wow!  I've got to tell you guys, whenever I start to slide on my opinion of mankind and what our basic instincts are, I come here. If only the world was run by wet shavers.There are more admirable souls in here than than the Vatican. Skoal brothers.

I have to say this just reaffirms my opinion that the shaving community in general and the 'Nook in particular have rather outstanding members Smile

how many kind replies, dear gentlefolks - i'll make a short update of my findings of the not so daring journey tomorrow: at least the shaving tackle will be stellar!

- 1 week's worth of stubble (!)
- lutz slant razor head
- ufo mokume unicum razor handle
- london bridge razor blade
- simpson chubby 1 best badger somerset shaving brush
- figaro p.160 shaving soap
- frostbite after-the-shave (mind you, here being -4 F)

Remember to rehydrate p160 and do two test lather to wipe off first layerSmile

I want picture of mokume to see how it change over last year.


Ohh and use it all in deep health my friend, you deserved it!
