    No, in all these things we are more than conquerors through him who loved us. For I am sure that neither death, nor life, nor angels, nor principalities, nor things present, nor things to come, not powers, nor height, nor depth, nor anything else in creation, will be able to separate us from the love of God in Christ Jesus our Lord - Romans 8:37-39

    Default What a day!

    Today, I came home from work expecting to have the cologne I had ordered from Scentiments waiting for me. It was. Not only that though, I had been promised some shaving cream samples from Caswell-Massey. It had been a few weeks since then and I had pretty much forgotten about it. They were here too.

    Best of all though, last Thursday evening, I ordered my new BK8 directly from Kent. In England. I'm in Connecticut. This awesome brush was waiting at my door too!! Three business days! Normal carriage charges. WOW!

    The only brush I owned was the EJ Medium Silvertip which I REALLY like. The only thing I don't like about it is, well, it's kinda small. I, umm, guess I fixed that! The BK8 is awesome, as is the presentation case! This brush is HUGE!! Can't imagine what a BK12 is like! Probably bigger than my car!!

    And soft?! OMG!! Had to try it out (as you can tell from the bloom). I'm gonna need a bigger tub of cream! Tried using the same amount I've been using with the EJ - Mr. Kent just laughed at me and said, "You're going to have to do better than THAT, son!" So, of course, I added more! I'm gonna need a bigger bowl too!!!!!!!!

    Next, I'm expecting the B&B Finest. Can hardly wait to see how that one stands up to the competition! I may have to start shaving three times a day...or maybe more body parts!

    Enjoy that 40's Tech. That's one of my favorites. Mine looks nowhere near as nice as yours though

    Interesting mix!

    Actually I asked because your name in Greek is a nickname for Aristotle (Aristotelis).

    Yes, I know. I've heard it's a nickname for Theodore and Theophilus as well. I have Greek friend who calls me Telly-opolus as a result.

    George, when we left Israel to come to Canada, we were living in Thessaloniki for a while---what a wonderful city. I go back there almost every year.

    Norton 4k/8k... $69 including tax
    Nagura stone
    Radio shack Microscope

    finally I was able to hone my W&B 5/8. It even passed the HHT with the conservative pyramid and 50 laps on the smooth side of my strop. Nice!!! I may not be anywhere near honemeister standards but they shave smooth.

    My parents are from Thessaloniki! I haven't gone there for a couple of years now though, and I really miss it. (Go PAOK!)
