I received a new package Friday of some shaving goodies.  I needed to order a new Cube, and decided to try the Ice flavor with the new V2 formula just for something different.  We also bought a new Christmas tree this year and I decided to get some shaving related ornaments because I guess I'm a shaving nut lol, before they go away for the season.  I've also been wanting to try the PAA Green Ray Brush with the Hybrid Tribble Synth Knot, but noticed the starter kit to be the best value to fill up the cart.  For the price, it is quite the nice package, gives me the chance to try CaD, and tosses in the Symmetry razor with some blades at a low price, especially with the loyalty discount used.  I really didn't need another razor, but I must say it looks really well made, especially for the price.  The plating is flawless, and the handle has some really nice knurling.  I was impressed.  The head looks fairly standard and I think it will shave as good if not better than the Gillette Heritage I received for Christmas.  The kit comes in a nice package and would be a great gift for someone interested in trying wet shaving.  I also like the smaller soap because I already have too many and it is a nice size to try a scent I don't have, especially in CK6.  I wish they would allow more customization - ie pick the brush, soap, razor, but for the price it is hard to beat.  The only thing I would have changed would have probably been the razor.  I would have liked to have tried the Prismatic from the PAA line up, but the Symmetry is probably a more mainstream design for a beginner and a good choice as a standard offering.


I was not happy with the 2019 ornament because it was printed way off center and let PAA know about it earlier today.  They have always corrected any issues promptly and have always provided outstanding customer service so I'm not worried about it.  I expect they will replace the defective item.

Ginger's Garden Colonia aftershave.  The test will be its fragrance and feel on my skin, but in the bottle it smells great.

I'm glad that you finally got your Suehiro. I probably use that stone more than any other. A few strokes on it will touch up a razor beginning to tug like no tomorrow. Congratulations.

Thank you, Richard.  I'm grateful to the member who led me to a USA vendor carrying it.  As you suggest, this will be superb for touch ups.
