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.
Looks like the one I have up in the on-deck circle.
I can't get to my camera ATM but my italian barber order just showed up
1 mudder focker
1 bees knees
1 boosters iced lime
Ahhh, the excellent long-handled adjustable, great razor, one of my favorites! Nice find !
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.
I received this in the mail today all the way from the UK. This should make Aaron happy.
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.
Today I received:
Speick A/S sample
Floid Amber A/S sample
Alt-Innsbruck A/S sample
I just fell in love with Alt-Innsbruck! Next pay check I will be getting a full bottle.
My SOTQ came today in the mail! It smells great!
UGH! Mine should be in then too, I can't wait to get home!
Just got home from Lee valley
I picked up
1 King 1000/4000 combo stone
1 king 8000 gold stone
1 DMT 220 Diamond plate
2 hone holders
When I get home from work tonight I will give them there maiden voyage.
Dumb question...but is this the same as Lee Valley Tools? The store that sells a WIDE variety of stuff?
Got this frm BullGoose.
To make this.
It's a Durham solid brass handle (hubba hubba)
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.
Yes luke there are one and the same, turns out they have a retail store in Burlington .. about a 15 min drive from my house!
Nice! Theres one here in Edmonton too! Looks like I know where I can get a hone now! Thanks!
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.
