    I picked this up at an antique mall yesterday. It's my first adjustable razor. The mechanism is really smooth and it's fairly clean. They also had a really nice blue Lady Gillette, in a case, that I left behind. I'm regretting that now. If it's there in two weeks when I get back there, it's mine.

    I received today:

    TSD Acqua Di Gio Type
    TSD Iced Coconut Lime Verbena
    RazoRock Nervous Wreck
    RazoRock Moroccan Secret
    RazoRock Mudder Focker
    RazoRock Thermal Mud soap
    RazoRock Baby Blue A/S

    I going to be honest. With first smell of the the Baby Blue, I'm not excited. To me, it smells like sweet almost cotton candy/baby powder. I will have to try it on to see if the profile changes with my body.

    My co-worker came back from Italy with this :


    I'm very happy cause it was cheap and fast, no shipping costs :) . He looked for the red version, didn't found it in the supermarket but he bought himself an Proraso aftershave.

    Fantastic idea. Is the Durham handle an exact fit ? I have read some people having to monkey around with handles to get the Fatip head properly fitted.

    It's a perfect fit. No issues. Durham does have a deep socket which my help. It's probably used to oversized heads sense it's ment to hold the Durham broad sword.:D

    You can even check to see if your local store has stock online great feature, I placed my order threw a computer in store and the packed it up and was in my hands in less than 5 min
    The man who packed my order said something along the lines of wow you must be doing some serious sharpening
    I said its for straight razors and he looked at me like I was crazy I guess I was that guys first razor nut lol

    The postman was good to me yesterday and I used the product for the first time this morning. I was very impressed with the cream and I love the way the after shave balm feels and smells. Kind of a citrus/woodsy smell.
