My first New Years resolution is to resist any head-banging ADs.  However, after I give in, my attention is navigating towards:

1] Rockwell adjustable Model T;
2] Thater 2-band bulb
3] Waiting for a new Saponificio Varesina;
4] Search for a quality aftershave balm that does not cost $50 per 100 ml and does not have "Food" in its name;

What about your prospective purchases in 2017?

Maybe a razor or brush or two. Probably little to nothing in blades or soaps as I'm pretty well set. But yeah, I do like my razors and brushes Biggrin.

I will probably order samples of course. No way am i going to buy all these 1:1. I have others waiting in line.

2016 have been a exploring year for me.

2017 I will be more focusing on those artisans I love, a high end brush (oh god, just one please), Timeless Razor and trying out a SE razor.

-My first batch of CRSW
-Maybe a brush or two

2016 was a good year for razors, so probably no razors in 2017.

I only have one goal: a M&F finest. Have one on order from last year.
After that, nothing really. Have found great soaps, a/s, balms, and know my blade & razor preferences.
Will probably stock up on some more SdP balms, just in case.

A M&F L7 Blonde Badger I ordered in 2016. A Paladin if I get the chance. Jabonman soaps. And if I make some progress work-wise (or When I do, I should say), a Timeless or Oristo.

Going to get a few new silvertip knots for some custom brushes some friends are wanting.  Any proceeds from that will buy some new handle materials, knots, and maybe some more Tabac and a CRSW soap or two, but that's it.

I've got 4 excellent brushes which I rotate each time I change blades, about 20 soaps, 2 new blocks of alum, plenty of balms, and probably 15 years of blades in my stash so I'm set for some time.

My goal is not to buy a single item this year. I have more products than I ever imagined. Do I need/ want more? No. I am going to enjoy what I already have.

I have that goal for my soaps and aftershaves, of which I have plenty. I've gotten into the habit of using a single soap for a week at a time, which has become a very satisfying way to get to know products.

Since I am saving for a couple pieces of woodworking equipment and a welding unit this will be a slow year for shaving gear.

The only items I may get are a couple vintage straight razors.

I did a no-buy in 2016.  I've still got plenty of soap, cream, and blades, so I probably won't be picking any of that up.  Hardware though...

This year I've already picked up
-1918 Old Type
-Blade Samples from Tryablade.
-I won the 2016 Christmas Giveaway from Rico's Corner.  That will be an AWESOME score when it arrives.

Plans
-SE Blades
-Delta Echo treatment for one or both of my Gillette Adjustables
-New Brush(es)?  I really like the Big Bruce, I'm interested in trying the Hulk, and I've been considering getting my first custom, as well as doing a couple of knot transplants.
-New DE handle(s).  I have a couple of heads that will need handles if I decide to keep them around.
-PAL Adjustable.  I was able to try one in a passaround and it's the only Injector I enjoy.
-Aftershaves? - I'm experimenting with using aftershaves instead of the TendSkin now that my skin seems to be in better shape.

For shaving, 2017 has already been pretty busy for me. I should have an ATT Calypso delivered today, plus I scored a Paladin PK-47 yesterday and am awaiting a M&F L7 in the next few months, that I ordered when Brad reopened orders. I also just got a Timeless razor at the end of December, so I'm good on hardware until at least mid year. I would still like to get a Blackbird, some vinatage razors, possibly a 2XL, and another Declaration Brushworks and Paladin. I'll also get more soaps from CRSW (have ordered Lavish) and B&M, plus start exploring Eufros, Tallow and Steel, L&L Grooming. Maybe some creams from AdP and SMN

On the fragrance front I'm looking at Frederick Malle's Geranium pour Monsieur and French Lover, Heeley's Sel Marin and Menthe Fraiche and Rania J's Ambre Loup.
