    Default Acquistitions 23 Feb - 1 Mar 2009

    I just received these beauties in the mail.
    They were almost black with tarnish but cleaned up nicely.
    New Standard (Bostonian?) and a Tuckaway.
    I shave my face and head with the Tuckaway and it shaves as good as it looks.

    Nice, nice, nice. I'm starting question my preference for TTO razors.

    My only concern is how slippery the silver plating stays.
    I've noticed on the brass NEW heads when they get tarnished they get less slick.

    Which countries did you visit on your trip? I would love to take a trip to Europe one day. I would especially like to go to Turkey since it was where my mother was born and raised.

    Default New brush and hones

    Today the postie dropped off:

    1 Kent BLK4
    1 Belgian blue 200x70 whetstone,
    1 Belgian yellow coticule which turned out to be a natural combi with a bbw back! Whoo hoo!
    1 natural combi slurry stone to match. Thanks to Rob at Ardennes.

    Just lapped them flat ready to go, now I need an old straight to practice with.

    That is a damn fine-looking brush. I only have one Badger brush (I never got SBAD) and it's a lower-end Omega.

    I just wish they would come with a decent stand. But I guess it's the brushes we really want eh?

    Cheers.

    An Iwasaki and a Belgian "White" Coticule. Thank you Kevin & Joel!


    This Iwasaki is sharp. It can easily fillet a single hair multiple times. Yowza!
