This arrived today from BullGoose.  SdM shaving soap and bath soap.  I got the unscented shaving soap.  The SdM soap base is excellent, and I'm glad Phil added the unscented to the three scented versions he carries.  The bath soaps are also excellent.  Guys, your ladies will love this bath soap, which has 30% donkey milk and a subtle scent.  You will be serving yourself well to add this to your next BG order.

Lucked out with a $15 Fatboy! Buried 8 pictures into a $30 lot of junk. Messaged the seller asking for just the razor, and agreed to take it for $15. It's a G date code, latest fatty I've personally seen which is cool.  If not for the blade pack missing a few blades, I'd say it's brand new. Very happy happy!

When you are scrabbling around at the back of your soap drawer, and find gold!
I have been nursing my last half-barrette of Valobra Glicerlanolina, and wondering what I was going to use as a pre-shave soap once it was gone, given Valobra have ceased production.  Needless to say, the sight below brought a massive smile to my face.
And if you were wondering - Yes, it doubles as a wonderful shave soap.

Charlie, what's with the Aussie Ice?  I thought you were a Fine Snake Bite man.

Don’t worry, Ricardo. I still have 5 backups of SB. I’m just expanding my horizons. This Aussie Ice is scented with spearmint. And WOW! It’s COLD! Colder than Snake Bite and Frost Byte put together. Snake Bite has a lighter face feel. It’s good for every day, whereas the other two will just fit into my rotation (which btw is up to nine now!).

Just ordered the Karve CUBR handle, 3.5" w/ brass widebody cap and brass "C" plate. Honestly, too many plate choices and a bit confusing. I hope I made the right choice based on the info. It is supposed to be 0.85mm gap with 0.09mm blade exposure. I'm not sure if the next plate would be too much. I have my eye on a different razor also, so if I didn't make the right choice I will try and/or order a different plate.

Sterling seems to offer more scent selections than just about anyone else in the business. How did you decide on those particular scents, Max?

Very smart looking. I dig the brass/copper look. Fill us in on the shave, Mike.
