I wrote a post a few days ago about being shocked by how much I have spent on shaving equipment since I started wet shaving.
Well, the reason I started to tally it up was because of this last round of items I ordered. They all arrived yesterday and stuffed my mailbox.
- New Rooney 1/1 Silvertip in Faux Horn (VintageBlades is a class act operation... very impressed with quality of packaging, contact info, and the brush is odorless.
- First tub of Tabac
- 25 Kai Razor blades
- Lady Star Gillette for my wife (she will be a wet shaver, she just doesn't know it yet) in blue
- A lot of 4 vintage Gillettes
- 1 possible Frankenrazor
- A fat boy that I overpaid for that is gonna take a miracle to salvage. This is the clincher for me that I am done. AD is over.
And, I picked up my first bottle of Thayer's.
Can someone tell me what I got in my lot?
From left to right it looks like a Fat Handle Tech with a comb (there is plate loss on this one), a 40's SS, New/Old?, A Tech with the baseplate upside down. They are dirty but in decent shaving order.
Any input on these would be great.
Also, there is this one... The top plate lost all its plating and is all bronze in color. Thoughts?
