There's that beautiful Plisson again! Heart
Eelco, I honesty believe your shaving kit is having as good a time as you are holidaying in Thailand!

How do you like the X100? I have the Lecia X1 (couldn't afford an M) and while it's nice, it isn't all that I had hoped for... Undecided
Lightbulb Perhaps a camera discussion thread in the Parlour might be in order...

I was not sure. I thought it might have been but it did not look exactly like your avatar picture. But then again, none of us probably look like our current avatar pictures. I know I don't.Smile

Gillette long tooth open comb "new" (Weber Wave)

Georgetown Pottery brush scuttle (cold water)
Nancy Boy Signature shave cream

A visit with my old friend, the open comb new. It has probably been about a year since it has seen whiskers, but with three days growth, I needed a razor that could get the job done right. No regrets!
