Here are two of my brushes this month. The lighter handle is Masur Birch wood and the dark handle is Dark Elm Burl wood. The first use for each will be this weekend.

Rod is a Craftsman! Aside from the excellent craftsmanship, my brushes were made as a custom order, shipped from the UK and received here in GA in two weeks. Awesome customer serviceBiggrin!

That's a lot of MdC. If you need to clear some shelf room I'd be glad to store 1 for you indefinitely! Wink

Here's what the postman dropped at my door:Blush

- Mühle R101 OC old model (for the mourning shaves)
- The Body Shop w/ sesame oil cream (another one for the mourning shaves)
- Sienna shaving cream
- Dovo menta

I tried the Body Shop cream, and it performed wonderfully - the scent is awesome, it smells like cinnamon cookies Thumbup

I received my Pre De Provence and Muhle Synthetic Silvertip from "The Enabler" today. I like it so much, I'm going to order the 23mm knot once I get some cash.

I got the Tradere.com handle!

hehe, no need for a photo, just follow the Vendor Tradere posts, or the website to see photos.

It feels great in the hand, and I like the flared bottom. I also like the knurling- won't get caught in the towel when drying it off!

Now all I need is for someone to have a EJ DE8911 for sale at $30.00 with priority shipping Cool
