The only Mourning equipment I have is an old gold ball-end Tech. I hijacked it from my grandfather back in the 70's to use as a travel razor. The 3 piece design broke down flat whereas the Gillette adjustable I used did not. I have carried it in my Dopp bag ever since. The only other thing is an old GI shaving mirror I carry in there also.

Edit: Forgot an old Super Speed. Don't use it much anymore. Prefer 3 piece razors

I am still a bit lacking in the vintage aftershave department. So it goes.

I have consolidated a bit and I actually have a few less vintage items today than when I made the post.

Well, ALL of my razors are discontinued except for the Muhle R41. I'm not going to list them all, but going to the cabinet and counting, then realizing what I have in storage, it was over 31 razors (Yikes! I didn't know!). In storage there have to be another maybe 10 unique rezors that I didn't count, SSs, Techs, a Fatboy, 3 VAS, SE Razors. Yikes! Gee, I guess I just lost track and had no clue what I've actually acquired.

Soaps:
P160
RazoRock XXX
Barbershop Pro
Burma Shave

Blades:
Gillette Platinum-Plus

A/S:
I might have a few, but I just don't care enough about them. With a few exceptions.

A bottle of Old Spice with a few shakes remaining that I bought in the '70s.
KF 80 Below
That's it. The rest I don't care for anymore, not even to find out if they're mourning A/Ss. They're just too strongly scented.

I ought to do a few Mournful Monday shaves and use up the Old Spice.

I did not realize that Acca Kappa discontinued their shaving cream. That does not sound like a good move on their part as I had only heard good things about it. Huh

I heard it was being reformulated at least. But maybe that's not the tub version, I'll remove it.

You are probably right...no need to remove it. I no longer carry Acca Kappa so am not as attuned to the changes.
