Sunday I was out and about and found one of those new King C. Gillette DE razors.  I'm sucker for shiny new things and had to add it to the collection.  I'm sure it will be a good shaver and looks nicely finished. I was a bit disappointed in the packaging being a bit torn, but it isn't the end of the world.  I think it is great Gillette is selling fair priced DE's in a regular store and hope it leads to new wet shavers discovering the enjoyment of wet shaving.  Maybe someday we will see a new real Gillette razor, but I will not hold my breath.  This will have to do for now.  Anyways the initial impression of the quality of the razor is favorable.  I will need to break it in soon.  I do not expect any surprises, but I do expect a great shave and that is the point.

Yesterday I received a package with 2 soaps ordered from Top of the Chain.  One was a PAA exclusive - Albion of the North, and the other was The Explorer from Zingari Man.  I could not resist the unique PAA soap, and never tried a product from Zingari.  I had to see what all the buzz was about.  I did the family sniff test and all 4 liked them both, but it was split down the middle for their favorite, so it would appear that I chose a couple of winners, especially since I like the scent off the puck for both.  The PAA soap seemed to have a more complex scent that popped a bit when a little was rubbed on my wife's arm - the maple sweetness came out and was less hidden.  Anyways, I'm excited to try them soon and I'm sure they will be enjoyed.

It's here. Woo hoo!  The new Perigrino brush and Atomic Age Bay Rum soap from PAA.  This is my first artisan soap.  And first bay rum.  The aroma is wonderful.  The brush is a lathering beast.  Plus, the cool extras they include are a nice touch.

Yesterday I had to take my car to Toledo for repair - one down side to owning a Tesla in Michigan, but while I was out I received a package from WCS that took advantage of their Father's Day free shipping.  I picked up the matching aftershave balm to my Zingari Man Explorer soap.  I will break it in tomorrow and it is the first time I will have used Zingari Man products.  It was a great day in Toledo as well.  I took my wife and daughter to the art museum then Tony Packo's for their famous hot dogs as those familiar with Mash, may know.  Car was fixed for free and everyone enjoyed.  I then took my daughter to see all the taxidermy and fish in Cabela's. Just a simple yet fantastic time together.
