    Default My very first SE razor!!

    Just received in the post yesterday, straight from far far away Seattle a beautiful SE razor and assorted blades:

    1 GEM 1912 with short handle (I wonder if this could well be the first and only Gem in my dear home country..?)
    1 pack of 10 GEM stainless steel blades
    1 pack of 10 Treet blades

    Also in the mail, but not from Seattle, were:
    3 packs of 200 each of Ted Pella SE blades, PFTE coated
    This should keep me going for a few years.. I still don't know what possessed me when I placed that particular order..anyhow, I was told they are pretty good and I don't feel like ordering every couple of months anyway

    Hope my couple of straights won't feel too much neglected while i am playing around with this new family member..

    This month I restocked my shaving creams.

    Got a 4.4 oz jar of Tabac soap and tub of TOBS Avocado. That should last me a good long while.

    I liked it. The scent was a citrusy soap and the lather was great. Overall great shave. The price to quality ratio is excellent and I'll be keeping it on the shelf within easy reach.

    I was fortunate enough to come across this beauty Saturday after my son's college swim meet. I really love road trips. A nice little No. 00G set.

    Very nice! So after reading that notice on the box, how did they know that you were using a different blade? What would they do, sue you? Kinda funny...

    Received this in the post today from a friend in England, a nice sampling of some Spanish shaving products, along with some Palmolive sticks and a Valobra stick. Sorry for the crappy cell photo.

    Cheers,
    David

    Finally I found a local (Singapore) friendly store that stock Feather products. Yay!

    Bought the artist club RG and grabbed a 100 piece pack of Feather DE blades.

    Had a bad rash of RAD recently. Bought the cheaper Fuji shavette last week too.
