    Ivory-handled Plisson and a 250ml bottle of Creed Cuir De Russie.

    No?

    OK, I'll settle for a bottle of Taylor's #74 Victorian Lime aftershave, and maybe a bottle of the Original #74 too.

    Default Acquisitions - 6 Dec. to 12 Dec.

    Holiday is over - back to the world of dreams, as Basil Fawlty would say. Time to gear up for Christmas.

    So what did we score this week?

    I snagged a Beehive handle in faux ivory from Rudy Vey's "overstock" handle sale.
    "Well, if we took the bones out it wouldn't be crunchy, would it?

    50 Dorco ST301s, 36 Gillette Yellow SharpEdges, and a handful of free ASB samples that came with the Gillettes.

    a couple of "I-don't-know-what-they-are" brushes:

    the first is a little badger number from dbay. I can discern "pure badger" and "made in England" on the handle; I'm going to get a glass to see if I can make out more.

    the knot isn't especially dense; this might be a project (we'll see if it sheds as is - vintage hair doesn't scare me none) - this will be a great travel brush. It fits perfectly into a standard prescription bottle.


    I took a flier on a 3-brush lot on dbay - a mistake, I think (it all smelled bad, from the BIN price, to the bad pics, to the "error" in shipping charges - I complained and was thanked for pointing out the error: price dropped from $16 to $6) - but I made an offer & it was accepted. Anyway - a "mixed badger" from Victoria in Germany:

    I soaked it and shampooed it and lathered it - it shed a bunch but seems to shed no more, and has softened up nicely. The label is slipping (obviously the brush hadn't been used, given the crappiness of the decal). Maybe worthwhile.


    and this no-name bristle brush - plastic (not obvious in the seller's pics), but decent boar.


    and the third brush in the lot went into the trash. So $20 for two usable brushes. As if I needed 'em.

    I also spent $7.38 on dbay for "two old injector razors and brush." The brush is a nice old Ever-ready project brush; one of the injectors (both Gs) was rusty and went straight into the trash; the second razor was unused - the original blade blank was still in it. I'm happy with that!

    And finally, I got a 20-blade pack of injector blades, purportedly EMS (similar to Pellas) - the label was laser printer home-made number (do the EMS lots have labeled boxes, I wonder?) I've had one shave with these blades and it was pretty good.

    Just arrived from the bay, postage is a little slow around christmas time as customs are inspecting a majority of packages that come into Australia.
    Pictures are pre cleaned, literally just unwrapped the bubble wrap.

    I won a bit of gear from the bay on the same day or day after, so that means that it should all arrive any day now.
    Christmas is early for me

    Nice! How big is the blade? If you want to share, how much was it?

    Mark, how does the new formulation compare to the old tallow one?
