I got a 64 Slim in the mail today! It's in nice shape. There's a little paint worn off of a couple of the numbers but the plating is all intact.
TOFLAC-U, AOM, LEMS/ Stay back! I have a Merkur, and I know how to use it!
Bought a Merkur progress yesterday
I am still waiting on my kilo of P.160 that I ordered at the end of last year.
Everyone's starting the year in style!
Got those rather nice brushes.
The black badger and the two boars looks like they could need new knots, but I will check first.
All brushes looks to be unused.
And I got a Mühle R101 with the 2010 head and three wooden bowls for soaps.
A nice start to 2012
After years of searching, I finally found my first OS mug. Got it for $5.35. I think it is circa 1948.

Picked up a Merkur 23c (actually bought this NYE, so technically a Dec. 2011 acquisition), Vulfix 1000p Pure Badger brush, Cella shave soap (cream?), and RazoRock Mughetto di Bologna. Haven't tried the RazoRock yet, but the Cella is amazing!

Look what I found for five bucks.
Just bought a new Bocote wood 24mm Silvertip from PCwoodcraftandPens on Etsy. Absolutely beautiful and feels nice in the hand. I can't wait to use it. The knot on the vintage brush my Dad gave me decided to seperate. I think this one should last quite a while.
I just received an order from Phil at BullGoose Shaving: a Semogue Owners Club boar brush, a bottle of D.R. Harris sandalwood aftershave, a jar of Proraso aloe and green tea pre-shave cream, and packs of the following blades: Bolzano, Astra, Rapira Swedish Steel, and Gillette 7 O'clock yellow. I can't wait to start using this stuff. The SOC is an upgrade to my Semogue 1305, which I find to be a very good brush -- so I'm hoping the SOC is even better.

All the Avon's cost me $8.
The mugs, $12-15.
I scored a vintage Coticule for a whopping $6.50.
The best score though was making some new friends in the Straight Razor Making and Restoration forum.
Aw c'mon... It's just a fancy rock...
Got this beautiful brush from Rudy Vey, a Buffalo horn handled rover. 22mm set at 46mm. WOW! Very nice! It will look very nice next to my Wade and Butcher meat cleavers when they get new handles!
