This is a very exciting purchase. I forgot to pack some AS for my weekend away. Trudged to the local CVS and bought some Skin Bracer by....Mennen. It is serviceable at best but it did do the trick.

I found these two at my local antique mall. I've never shaved with these single-edged razors before, but they looked in such pretty condition, I had to snatch them up. I passed up a nice pocket edition in a beautiful gold-colored metal case. It still had the used blade case, and looked nice, but there was some heavy wear on the head, and the seller wanted $95. He wasn't there to haggle, so I let it go. I also passed up a flare-tip SS that had an endcap missing. There was no price tag, and I didn't have the time for them to contact the seller.
From areler67 in Luxembourg (Thank you kind Sir) comes a delicious near mint Made in England (Light) HD Rocket in Aluminum. LOVE it! This is an excellent copy of the first Rocket I ever bought from Cigar Dan ( and subsequently sold on the BST). too late to shave with it today but it will be used tomorrow!
gotta post the one I found yesterday ,but it wont compete this week !
C&E BBB.(I know,took me long enough!)

Mugs and razors this week. The Old Spice on the right is a coffee cup. Most folks in shops don't know the difference between a coffee cup and a shave mug. Just stick a old brush in it and call it a shaving mug. Haven't cleaned the razors yet this is how I found them. Happy Hunting

Found these at an auction today. VERY HOT!!!!!!!
Trumper's sample pack
Arrived in the post yesterday - it's been a long time coming and I was getting anxious in case it had gone astray. It cost me £20 which I think is probably OK
It doesn't look like it's been used - but it will be!
Man...that razor is a beauty and it sounds like it was a bargain...lucky you!
