My beloved wife - who is the one who suggested I look into traditional wetshaving to begin with - got me a wonderful present for the holiday; a tiny, cutesy Proraso travel kit. It has the most adorable little boar bristle brush, a rebadged Omega 50068 (unless I'm mistaken - definitely an Omega though).

For comparisons sake, the last photo shows the diminutive brush next to my other Proraso branded Omega brush, my 10048. It's sooooo tiny, and sooooo adorable!

I'm very, very, very lucky to have a wife who not only understand the 'need' for several razors, brushes, soaps and aftershaves... but who actively encourages me to try more hardware and software Biggrin

I haven't tried it yet, but if my experience with other aftershave balms from Proraso is any indications, it should be great Smile

Thanks for the explanation, Celestino!

Oh c'mon Claus, TSA is legendary in the shave forums for how much they mess with us for what we try to bring on planes!
