Hey All,

Hope everyone is having a great day. I wanted to take a few moments to post about gifts that I handed out to my groomsmen recently. As an avid wetshaver, I wanted to gift to the groomsmen in my wedding party a kit that contained my favorite products. For the soap and aftershave, I chose CRSW ( Le Chypre Sombre) and Fine respectively. These are readily available products so that was easy enough. Acquiring the hardware was going to be a bit more difficult as my favorite brush and razor maker are in high demand. Well, both parties agreed to undertake this project and I couldn't be more thankful! My photography skills aren't very good but here we go:

The acquisitions:

Please note the Guerrilla razor and extra stand/handle were not part of the groomsmen kits, these items just arrived on the same day. Also, a few of the razor photos were provided by James (he takes way better pictures).

Ken, Cody, and James made my special day even more special. I had so much fun speaking to both parties and the finished items are spectacular. Ken, Cody, James... thanks again for everything, the brushes and razors that belong to me will be my most cherished den items! Oh, and the groomsmen were extremely happy with the kits!

This is absolutely amazing, congratulations on putting all of that together. I'm sure this was no easy feat. 

The paladin knots are quite beautiful and appear unique to their normal stock. What does the breseño select represent?

Briseño is George's last name. Briseño Select was just a special engraving request. It wasn't intended to signify anything with regard to the knots. But you have a good eye; these brushes were the first we've made with knots from a new batch that arrived in April. I'll post about them in more appropriate places soon.
