It is gone after 60 shaves and the homemade soap has met and exceeded my expectations.

Re: What's in the box?

Current status of the box as of 12 October 18 -

14 x boar shaving brushes
9 x badger shaving brushes
7 x synthetic shaving brushes
2 x horse shaving brushes

This is what I like about the box. I was planning to thin out the soaps and creams, but I changed my mind. I'm using them all up!

Re: New synthetic brush upgrade project

The knot was delivered yesterday. Now it's been installed in the handle, and the glue is drying. I'm looking forward to tomorrow's shave!

Re: Cyril Salter solid shaving soap (tallow)

Gene, I don't consider the scent to be lavender, all I get is a light/ pleasant/ spicy/ barbershop scent. I have never been accused of being an expert on fragrances, so if its lavender, then what do I know. 8) Yes, the 100 and 70 soaps are both tallow.

Re: Cyril Salter solid shaving soap (tallow)

In about a week or so I'm planning to go back to the Salter's soap for the rest of this year. I think it's good for somewhere between 50 and 60 more great lathers before it runs out. It's got 37 shaves on it so far.

I can see the bottom of the container in a few places now, looks like the end is near.

Re: BB 1818 replacement

A quick ebay check shows several listings for Floris Santal that come pretty close to your posted budget limitations.
