As this year comes to an end, I thought it would be a nice idea to make a thread like this.

I am about to receive a couple products, so I will post mine in a few days.

So, what were your best purchases? Which products you enjoyed the most?

In reality the best purchase I made in 2016 was a litttle 8 pound bundle I picked up at the hospital on June 14th. I'll be paying for her for the rest of my life, but Cecilia Clementina was by far my best "purchase" of 2016.

Untill now, it was something that I was not expecting to find. As a matter of fact, It was something that I was not even looking for.
A vintage Personna Precision Micromatic adjustable safety razor.

This was sent to Simpson this year for a re-knot, and between the hair grade and the knot it came back just right.

Best thing I bought was a Shave Revolution HMW 24mm knot. It has become by favorite and best performing badger knot I have ever used. It has been shaved with a lot as of late.

I also have enjoy the variety of HMW and Manchurian brushes I have bought and let go this year.

That's such a beautiful brush, Jeff.  What kind of knot is it?  Manchurian?

Not many purchases for me this year but so far I have to say my two best are: 

Paladin Chief 28mm in Jade

Savon Des Volcans Menthe Stick (thanks Tony!)

I am awaiting a tub of Bison Tallow Trismestigus soap and a Declaration re-knot from Scott at L&L.  Hoping that these two will also be great.
