Not shaving related, unless I need to shave in the dark during a power outage, but new for me is this BLF Q8 super-highpower flashlight, obtained through a group buy on a flashlight forum.  Its output is 5,000+ lumens, with a peak intensity of 50,000+ cd, and a range of 450+ meters.  It is waterproof and weighs 400g without the batteries.

For shaving in a power outage? More like for shaving in a black hole! Very nice.  Tongue

Received this yesterday.. made by Island Bladeworks with an Elite Manchurian 26mm knot. The finish on this Handle is incredible, very unique shape and this knot has good backbone with no scritch. I really like this brush.

Thank You, yes it’s blue and yellow resin stripes with 3 black bands. Island Bladeworks puts numerous different knots in his handles including Shavemacs.

Yes here is the scent notes, it smells amazing to me and performance is top notch as well. I have a strong feeling these Grooming Dept soaps are going to be in my top performers .. trying the After The Fire soon

Scent Notes: Yuzu, Citrus Accord, Basil, Clove, Haitian Vetiver

The yuzu is note is bright and refreshing. The clove is undetectable, but provides depth. The basil adds airiness and green facets. The vetiver is woody and grounds the whole scent with depth.

Well, how is the shave with your new Paradigm?

I have used in two consecutive shaves with different blades (Personna and Astra) and the results have been excellent, better with the second one. It is a very well constructed razor, with an impressive polish.
It is very smooth and in two passes with some retouching, BBS.
I have to continue testing with different blades to confirm sensations.

Backup of CRSW Glide Olfactory Hue from the second batch.  The way I'm going through the first tub, I already know I'll need to reorder again from the next batch.

shiny indeed  Thumbup  The detail on the knurling is really really nice.  I couldn't have imagined exactly how amazing it was...had to see it in person.  He's a true craftsman.
