Generally I think Simpson brushes are dull looking, and it is not many of their handle designs I like, but they are quite hyped, so I fell in and have just received a Persian Jar in super badger, now I'll have to see if the hype is right ;o)
I also lacked to try the last of the three T's - Trumper, so an Eurics soap went in as well.
An Eclipse Red Ring, cased with instructions. It needs a clean and polish but overall seems to be in excellent condition.
Very nice James. Was that an ebay buy or did you manage to find it locally?

QED soaps (in bowl) - Lime & American Gent. Both pass the sniff test!!!
Just got this little beauty in the mail:
A 5/8 Torrey with a barber's notch tip, scales in mottled browns. Photos are the original seller's.
It'll get a good stropping and workout tomorrow morning -- because my strop from Whipped Dog Straights arrived at the same time! A twofer at the mailbox, w00t!
My father was at a knife convention way up in the great north, and picked up a few goodies for me!
An eye for quality and bargains seems to run in the family.
The strop is a Faultless No.50 Belt Strop. Patented in 1882, don't know when this one was made. American-made.
On the left:
#1: Bengall, I think the scales are bone. Says A.-Bol. Borlänge Maskinaffär (A.-Bol. Borlänge Machine store) on one side and Bengall on the other.
#2: Machenbach & Benz, has a small inlay of pearl(?) on the other side. Solingen-made.
#3: Horseshoe No.26, this one almost took my arm off then I tried it on my arm hair, made in Eskilstuna, Sweden
#4: J.A Hellberg, says Sweden42 on the tang, made in Eskilstuna, Sweden
On the right:
#1: Paul Waldmin, Weger-Solingen
#2: J.A Hellberg, scales made from bone I think, made in Eskilstuna, Sweden
#3: Horseshoe #102, made in Eskilstuna, Sweden
#4: J.A Hellberg, bone scales, made in Eskilstuna, Sweden
#1: Horseshoe No45, made in Eskilstuna, Sweden
#2: Erik Anton Berg, made in Eskilstuna, Sweden.
Quite the haul, eh gents?
Edit: I'm also waiting to pick up my shipment from Ogallala at the post during the week!
