Thank you...I sent Rudy a Shavemac 2007 LE to loosely copy and this is his interpretation.

My favorite SE, the Gem OCMM. This is my 4th one but is by far in the best shape of all of them. One of mine will be heading to another home soon which put me over the edge in deciding to purchase this one. Even the box is in great shape.

Been a busy month for me! First came a NOS Sterling 5/8 square point hollow ground. Then a 7/8 Taylor's Eye Witness "The 1000" restored by A. Jaques with carbon scales. Next up is the Cella/Omega boar from the GF for Valentines day. Then the Dandy Dan razor bank and antique clippers (both for display.) Now I am waiting on a lot of Gillettes.. 1 Blue tip SS, 1 Black handled Flair Tip SS, 1 adjustable slim, 1 fat boy, and a SS. Awesome month!

I picked up a tub of Kiehl's shaving cream for use with a brush. I understand it has been discontinued and found it on sale at an outlet store. It seems that Kiehl's is now only producing a brushless cream.

Shaving brush angels die every time someone utters those horrible words - "b....less cream!"

Attachments need to be less than 256 kb, you could always resize the image/reduce resolution etc.

Heralding from Australia, all my shaving related purchases are made online. I enjoy the convenience of shopping from home, but the wait time associated with international shipping requires the patience of a saint. And a saint I'm not especially with hellish delivery times often taking up to a month!

For those with vendors closer to home, it still can be a trying wait even when talking a week or only days.

So why not ease the burden and keep the anticipation alive by sharing with us all on The Shave Nook what you are not so patiently waiting to arrive?

I should have a new Vie-Long horse and some tubes of La Toja classic by the end of the week. I've begun studying classical guitar and wanted something to set the mood for days where I can practice in the morning. Pics to follow...

Oh yeah, almost forgot that last night Phil sold me his last pot of Cyril Salter Rose. What a great week!

Where have you sourced your test tube racks?
I have been searching for something suitable for a while now.
