Mesquite burl custom brush handle made by Bob Quinn of Elite Razors. I received it yesterday and already installed the new knot. The empty socket was sufficiently wide to permit me to add a dark brown ring at the base of the knot, and I think it came out looking quite handsome, if I may say so.

Backup Floris No. 89 splash aftershave and Santa Maria Novella Emulsione Analcolica for those rough days.

Today I got two new DE razor handles from Toby at Triad Razor and some vintage Penhaligon's English Fern aftershave and matching tallow English Fern shaving soaps.

A beautiful new razor handle from Triad arrived today, a purple highlighted Aristocrat.

I just got this combination of iKon DLC pieces, a top cap, an open comb base plate, and an OSS base plate. I plan to use the cap and OC plate in my rotation for comparison to the Feather heads I've been using, since I don't believe I have tried my vintage Light Brigade blades with an open comb razor. I'll probably just put the OSS plate up for sale.

Today I got some cheap plastic pipettes. I tried one for transferring aftershave from one bottle to another, with a tiny opening, that I wanted to fill, and it worked well. It was kind of slow, since I could move only 1.5ml at a time, but it did work.

And I got a bottle of Pierre Cardin splash aftershave, which I have never used before. In the bottle it smells a little more perfumey than I like, but I'll have to see how it is on my skin.

A suribachi (Japanese mortar & pestle) arrived today, and the size, shape, and texturing of the bowl appear to make it perfect for hot-weather shaving soap lathering. But time will tell....

Hello guys. There are new Myrsol shaving creams. I'm using them these days.
Formula C is already in distribution. Formula K will be soon, and Agua Balsamica will take a little more time.
