I have a couple hauls to show off that I am excited about. I will only post one pic of each here, but click on either one and it will take you to a gallery of the razor. The ebay images are also included in the gallery.
#58, MTGrayling hooked me up with a case for it too! Thanks Chris
TV Rocket This is the Rhodium plated TV Rocket I have been looking for. I was looking at every flare tip rocket on ebay.
Got my Executive, NOS Slant, and the rare V3 prototype SS.
I just got a 1924 Richwood in the mail today. Great razor! Sorry I don't have the ability to post pics right now.
Nice looking bunch of scores this week fellows.
Rodd, Have you started to build that addition on your house yet?...

A Sweet acquisition....
I was down to my last tube of Speick so I just had to order a couple of tubes from WCS. Also picked up a puck of TOBS Lavender, Musgo Real ASB and some packs of Sharp, 7 OC and BIC blades.
Tried the Sharps out this morning and they were better than expected.

I got this in todays mail:
A replica WWII German Luftwaffe shaving set. I re-enact a few time-periods, but WWII is currently not one of them. I bought the set hoping that the razor was a Merkur 1904. Sadly it wasn't.
The razor is branded Yuma it is cast in a lightweight material and the finish is wery poor. The blade gap is quite big and I suspect this razor to be quite agressive. I am still not quite sure whether I really want to try it out or not.
The brush is actually not bad, I believe it is boar. Though it does seem to loose quite a few hairs when you fumble agound with it.
A few pics of the razor:
All in all I may have paid a little too much for this lot. But I may be suprised when I try it out.

Wow!! Great piece of history you have there Jakob!! Nice find!!
Kingsley tortoise/silver brush
Great score Jakob, How does it shave?
Just got these today! I know the fountain pens won't interest everyone but they are a 1939 Sheaffer Balance, and a Parker 45! The Old Spice Mug is going on the desk to hold my fountain pens! Best part, I got it $1.04!

In the mailbox this afternoon in Balmy Tampa.
Mappin & Webb 5/8 "Nulli Secundus" Genuine Ivory Scales.
A most elegant addition to my shave journey.
It is the "Saturday" razor from a Mappin & Webb 7 day set. My unscientific theory is that it MAY be one of the least used razors from a 7 day set. I wondered if "Saturday" would have been a day to skip a shave for a gentleman, having shaved certainly on Friday and also on Sunday prior to Church, leaving Saturday as a rarely used selection.
Many thanks to my friend Don Addleman (TAZ)
