For the 3rd year straight, I went to the Maggard Razor meet yesterday with my son and had a great time meeting folks and talking with vendors.  Scored some nice samples and won a Fatip Piccolo in the raffle.  I also bought my first straight razor - Ralf Aust and strop.  It was a great time and highly recommend.

I've always wanted to go to Maggard's meet up. Nice Aust and strop. Aust is a quality razor from a great artisan, and I hope you enjoy straight razor shaving.

Yesterday I received a couple of bottles of Declaration Grooming Mayflower Aftershave Splash.  I loved the sample I received a couple of years ago and then they sold out before I could order so I picked up a extra bottle to match the soap I bought from Maggard!

A La Maison du Barbier synthetic brush in Ferarri red.
Looks and feels fantastic, as I understand it, this is the same knot as in the "old" Plisson L'Occitane.

Thank you Richard.  It is a first class meet and there are many fine folks there.  Last week I tried the Aust before going up north to Mackinac Island for the Lilac Festival.  I had a bit of razor burn and a small cut but survived.  I want to watch a few more videos to improve my technique and will probably give a try again next weekend.  It is something I have been wanting to try and build my skills but have a way to go.

Today I received a Smart Helix Apollo Razor.  It looks fantastic and the presentation in the wood packaging is a nice touch.  I can't wait to use it for the first time tomorrow.
