I have a full size keyboard and the typos I make are pretty frequent. Sometimes they're hilarious, and I wish I could leave them as is, but then everybody would know what a poor typist I really am, plus the result would be unintelligible. :lol:

[quote="brothers"]Murray, I'm quite impressed by your ability to identify and then build a strong reserve of those few products that sit atop the mountain in your shave den.

I wasn't able to begin the process of narrowing my focus until about two years ago. Since then I've continued to thin down the best of what works for me, and just have begun to try to acquire some reserves.

Gary, my ability is not developed enough to narrow the array of soaps and creams to several. I do seem to reach for the MWF and MCD when a mindless but quality shave lather is needed. AOS sandalwoo, T&H grafton, and Castle Forbes seem to be favorites to enjoy as well. Gifts from the family were Edwin Jager soaps but I have not tried them yet. Doug

I don't want to inventory what's all in those boxes, I'd rather keep some things a surprise.

One thing I can confidently say about my stash -- I always have plenty of MWF on hand.
