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!

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.
