Gents,

This is an extremely rare Le Hyalin 7/8 F.F. Paris frameback straight razor...Model 300.  I do not definitively know the age...no later than the early 1900s I suspect!


The scales are not original...they are buffalo horn, and the bark was left on...the pins and part of the spacer are made of sterling silver.


When I came across it on eBay it sort of really caught my eye, and after a short negotiation I was able to purchase it.  The seller bought it from a chap in Germany...funny how these things make their way around through the decades!


This blade arrived today, and after inspecting it...this thing is hitting on all cylinders!  Extremely handsome, and I can’t wait to use it later this week!


Vr


Matt

Not shaving-related but appreciated anyway, a microfiber blanket from JC Penney, at 2/3 off the retail price.  Light but warm, so my feet stay toasty without being squashed.

I just got back from Chicago to find 2 packages of goodness delivered for some awesome shave enjoyment.  I received my Occam's Razor full open comb base with ridged head and to avoid shipping cost, a small puck of their Mountain Menthol shave soap.  The razor is a great looking piece of hardware, nice value, and has some substantial weight.  I tried it this morning with a slightly used Feather blade and it performed excellent.  I highly recommend this razor based the quality, price, look, but unfortunately only one shave to date.  Nice packaging as well, especially at this price point.

The other package was from PAA, probably my favorite overall artisan.  CK-6 Space Nog and Future Fiction bundles.  Both smell great but I probably favor Future Fiction, especially since the wife really likes it.  It is funny, but my son pointed out that off the puck, Space Nog has a Big League Chew gum smell.  Lathering up this morning, the bay rum and sweetness is more distinct and less bubble gum like. You definitely notice the difference once loaded on the brush.

Today I received my Cyber Monday order of some PAA fall scents I have been eyeing.  I picked up two bundles and three shampoo pucks.  The soaps smell great off the puck but Malbolge appears to be the winner.  It was funny because Malbogle was the least appealing to my wife from the scent descriptions, yet in person it was her favorite.  My last two orders from PAA had flimsy shave soap containers, but fear not they told me this is only temporary and that they will return to the more robust containers once this stock is depleted.  I'm glad this change is not permanent because I really dislike this packaging.  I can't wait to break these guys in.

Lovely.

Thank you, Pierpaolo.  It's very well crafted, and one of the nicest looking synthetic brushes I've seen.
