Yes, they are a very good Russian blade that usually sell from $15.00 to $20.00 plus shipping. I've seen them even higher on some European vendor web sites. I see they are available through you at a significant discount of only $10.00 instead of what they usually sell for. Can you explain how this ...

It is a 22mm set at a loft of 45mm which is a short loft by any measure but I likes my brushes firm and this one is just to my liking.

The handle I bought and then filled with epoxy - the next day then set the knot. I’m loving it.

As luck would have it I JUST bought a tube of Sandlewood. I had the Coconut in my hand but had never tried the Sandlewood scent in anything so put the Coconut back.
Sigh... so many creams, so few faces to shave.

A great story and an inspiration - thanks! As someone who is self-employed I can assure you the past few years have not been easy. It will give me context to keep this story in mind.
