These are my shaving gifts ALL from my wife.
I am looking forward to trying the Traders SB and the Ikon OC as well as the vArious soaps, cream and aftershaves.
The Acadia Spice flask looks great. Much better in person than in the photo. The glare makes.it hard to see.

Scented soaps, after shaves, shave cream, balms. Fortunately.my.wife gave me a lumberjack book to counteract all of thatWink

Dave,
The Brut is bath soap. My wife recently.gave me Brut AS balm and likes the scent. The soap came as a 6 pack.

And yes my bride is a keeper.

I love the Brut Bath Soap. Both the original and in the blue box are great soaps. If you haven't seen it, check at your local dollar tree where it's a $1 a bar.

Nice gift! She sure is a keeper Smile

Are you a lumberjack by profession, or just by hobby? In your avatar, it seems you have a couple of stihl chainsaws?

Striky,
I am not a professional. We run two woodstoves to heat our house. We have oil hot water heat but we prefer the charm and heat of the woodstoves.

Good eye. Both of those chainsaws are Stihls.
I run the MS311 with a 20 inch bar. My wife's is a 250 with a 16 inch bar.

We are not opposed to paying for firewood but try to cut and split as much as we can.
This pic is of my wife ready to saw.
   

This pic shows her cutting the logs to firewood lenght.
   

She even drives the tractor to move the firewood around.
   


As I mentioned - she's a keeper.

Since you noticed the saws - are you a logger?

Hi Phil

Sorry for the late reply.

No, I'm not a logger. And neither is my better half Cool But as you, we also run woodstoves (beside electrical heating) to heat our house. I really like the warmth coming from woodstoves, and prefer it to electrical heat.

I use a Stihl 241 C-M, which I don't think is available in the US. However, use Google translate, and read about it here, directly from the German website. It's a very good chainsaw!

PS. Love your tractor! I have to get me a little tractor for my backyard.

Pics of the 241 C-M:

If you are careful you can use the saw for heavy beard growth...gives a close shave I am told.Tongue

Striky,
Nice saw. I followed your link and read about it. I like the airfilter design and love the "stay put" bar nuts.

Yes, I like the saw very much. I love the M-tronic and the ElastoStart. Very easy to start, and all adjustments are done automatically regarding temperature (winter, summer), humidity etc to ensure optimal engine performance. They "stay put" bar nuts is a nice touch also Smile

The MS311 seems to be a very good saw. It's not available in Norway, so I have not tried it. Big and powerful Thumbsup
