Hi Guys - I have been away from the forum for sometime. Life has kept me busy - it is nice to see the 'ball has kept rolling here'!

Hoping to post more as time allows.

All the best!
Jason

Thanks guys - always enjoyed this place and glad to see things are chiming along.

Its nice to see that 'everything and nothing' is new in the shaving world. Looks like I will need to hoard my older Trumpers soaps though!

Hi Jason, certainly there are a great many new products that have sprung up from the ashes of the old. PannaCrema (if you can get it), Mike's, Haslinger's Schifmilck w/Lanolin, L'Ancienne, Martin de Candre Fougere, multiple new Musgo Real soap and creams, Proraso's all new, SMN is new. Bitter Almond from ABC in Italy.

Razors are raining down like never before, ATT Titan/Atlas, IKON slant is coming, Tradere, Fattip, R41 1913, Weber, UFO handles, Hart's got a 7/8 and a wide variety of interchangeable handles.

Brushes are proliferating at reasonable prices. WSP and New Forest, to name a couple.

What else? I'm still thinking about it. Edit, now I remember, Harris has Rose, Windsor, and Eucalyptus, and Taylor's has Coconut and Grapefruit.

My whole point is that there are too many really good current products to waste any time bemoaning what used to be.

Some of the old ones are missed, but the new stuff is every bit as good, if not better, speaking objectively, of course.

Jason, I saw "jtpca" on the thread and I thought, "Gee, he hasn't been around for awhile!"

Glad to have you back and to know that you're okay.

Thanks again guys - appreciate it all including Gary's updates!

Additionally- it appears that Fitjars has now has reasonable shipping rates and my new foray into straights was relatively short lived (perhaps to be taken up again at a later date!)
