Well I don't know if it was the mailman or Phil jumping on his private delivery jet as I talked with Phil about this on Monday afternoon and I have it this morning. Phil must have a big S tattooed on his chest.Smile

Very nice score John. I was wondering was BP the owner of Wilkinson Sword when the blades were manufactured?

I really don't know. I think it's likely that they just made some as a promotion for BP in these little 2-blade dispensers.

And probably sold them at their stores.

Two more marvis tubes from that supermarket

[Image: 11372533uj.jpg]

A packet from a local portuguese shop...
- big Preshave Proraso (500g)
- Two TFS soaps (orange blossom & jasmine, and cinnamon & bitter orange)
- vintage Merkur Progress with box and instructions
- some blades and a... whatever the name is, to use with the straight razor

[Image: 11372536yg.jpg]

Some details from the Progress
[Image: 11372534gt.jpg]

[Image: 11372535zc.jpg]

And an old razor from the german ebay: Wade&Butcher Special 5/8''.
Not new, but can't complain about the price...
[Image: 11372569vz.jpg]

The seller told me that it was shave ready, and I think that is true: it passed the hanging hair test with ease...

A refill lavender soap from AOS, a badger brush with a metallic barrel-shaped handle and a big bottle of Acqua Classica Borsari di Parma

It is a real stunner, even more so in hand. This is a big bowl! Julie, your handiwork is just beautiful. Clap

Now, do I use it tomorrow or wait and pair it up with my TSN 2012 LE Semogue badger/boar brush? Decisions, decisions. Hmm
