A weird thing happened this week. I got pretty content with what I have. Not that I won't be making more orders this month or trolling the BST's everyday- but I feel pretty good about my small set up. That got me thinking- what am I gonna treat myself to for Xmas?
Here is what I came up with:
iKon OC and SB ( I gotta try both)
Some frags. Terre d'Hermes is a definite.
A chubby/stubby style brush - still unsure if I want to go big name or with a RV or Bob Farvour
Replate Gillette NEW OC.

That's about it. I think I have RAD under control. SBAD is still an issue for me, but I am kinda over my Simpson kick.

So how about you?

I asked Santa for a Duke 3, he said he will get back to me but doesn't know much about shaving. Judging by Santa's appearance, that is probably true. Maybe he needs a str8.

Up until this morning I would have said "nothing." But then I read that post about the iKon slant.

"bugice" nice, Phil.

For me, a Simpsons Chubby 1 or 2 in any style.
Windsor cream and aftershave.
Merkur Futur

That's about it really for wet shaving stuff

I think maybe a new handle of some sort. Also would like one of those new Cadet open combs with the shorter handle if/when they ever come out.

I really don't lack for much. The things I want I pretty much buy throughout the year, but the wife will want to buy me something. I've already told her that I want an extendable/retractable mirror. Everything else that I would like to have is far too expensive for her to gift to me. Frankly, I really don't need them. BTW, they all go bang.

If she really wants to get me something more, a Simpson Manchurian Classic.

I could certainly get along with the shaving tools I have, but like many of you I have some mild ADs.

edit: forget everything below. I know what I want. Thanks for the inspiration Jfro!

I want some Creed! That's what I want.

I want that special hair the pelt dealer promised me.... Angry I'd also like some more super silvertip hair since I'm on that track.

I'd say I want a Rooney Finest or Plisson HMW or Simpson Manchurian but.... kind of seems like I've managed to acquire them all.

Oh, I know! I want a mycarver razor. And a Jacques razor. A TZ Damascus would be great too. Also, I'd like to finally put in my order for a pattern welded SS blade from Brian.

I live to serve. I also have no self control. Scratch the Hermes off my list. Got it.

I don't want anything honestly. I want my wife and son to have the best Christmas ever. I'd like an iPad Mini, but I'm going to have to wait a bit for that.
