I have acquired more than a few of these blades, and haven’t even gotten around to trying them yet.  These other vintage blades last so long!

Guess I will have them when I get to them!

I received The Holy Black Trading Co. Ruby Red Creeper Tallow Shave Soap & Barrel Aged Aftershave Splash set this past Monday and tried it out this morning for the first time.  I have been using the Tangerine Creeper Secret Stash this past week and definitely prefer the Ruby.  It was very cool and refreshing.  I can't wait to put Ruby through its paces this coming week, but I am sure it will be a delight.  It is a bit over priced, but the package is fun and as a hobby I can't complain.  The splash is outstanding, but the soap base itself could use an upgrade.  I find it a bit on the foamy side and prefer the CK6 formulation of the PAA soaps.  Nevertheless it is slick and works well.

Thanks Matt. I like how the printing looks to be floating. The silver part is actually within the clear. Here is another pic with some other M&F's.[Image: rJ6EZWp.jpg]

The musgo's were from last year. If I remember correctly, I got them for $12 each. I currently have the classic scent in my rotation and really like it. It has become my go to when I am in a rush. Makes a really nice lather quickly with my synthetic brush.

Based upon someone's recommendation I picked up a bottle of Gillette Cool Wave Aftershave Splash.  I haven't tried it yet but it smells nice in the bottle.  Can't wait to use it later after I finish my ride.

Today I received a package from Italian Barber.  I picked up the unique Switch and Lupo razors.  These are machined extremely well and look great.  I can't wait to try them.  Unfortunately the Lupo had a defect with the mounting screw bent so the head is at a slant.  The fine folks at Italian Barber apologized and promptly responded, promising to send  a new replacement cap.  I trust their service will be impeccable and the razor will be an outstanding shaver.  I can't say enough how precise the rest of the machining looks and what a great value these razors appear to offer.  I guess I will be using the switch tomorrow!
