Yesterday I received a package from the Bay.  It was a vintage D. Miller & Son Eldon Workbroom Cut Throat Razor.  I could not resist picking this up since it had my eldest sons name Eldon on the blade.  It isn't a common name today and I always get a kick out of finding things that remind me of my family.  It isn't sharp and will need a new edge, but the blade is not in bad shape.  I am not sure of the age, but I would guess it is from the 1890's.  It is always cool to shave with history.  If anyone knows anything about this razor, let me know.  The scales look old and a bit small for the blade.  My guess they are not the original.  I though they were going to be made from wood like a broom handle, but they appear to be some kind of plastic or horn.  Nevertheless, I can't wait to get this guy shave ready.  I am waiting for a 1000 grit stone on back order, and will try honing this once I receive it.  My lowest is 4000 and I think I need to go lower.  I'm inexperienced in honing so this will be a nice project to learn with and improve my skills.  The razor was only $15 so I am not worried about trying to restore it.  I don't want to ruin it, but I think it will turn out fine.

Nice haul, Primo.  I was able to get one of Phil's last Valobra soaps in the Cologne scent.  I wish I could have added a Patchouly.

Thanks, Ricardo. The Patchouly was particularly difficult to find. Smells and performs outstanding, BTW. But you knew that already.

This is the amazing part. I just scored a Fougère and these other three were on my "wish list". I believe there was also a sandalwood available as well. The search continues.

Received a couple of items this past week.  I never used Murphy & McNeil before, but I can say everything has been top notch so far.  I ordered these on Friday and they were delivered Tuesday!  Shipping was included in price and everything was packaged nicely.


The scent of the puck is great and the artwork looks amazing.  Even the classy frosted finish of the AS bottle and leather like wrap on the cap are all nice touches.  I can't wait to try this set.

 I have used Murphy & McNeill several times. Bill is awesome and the service is first rate. I usually get my shipment in just a couple days. It's only from Texas to Jersey but he gets items out faster than some bigger operations.

Two Muhle  25mm STF synthetic knots.  I understand that Muhle has discontinued these.  This is the knot which revolutionized synthetic brushes and led to them becoming widely accepted.  It remains one of the better synthetic fibers available.  It's unfortunate Muhle has discontinued it.
