    Now that it's May, I suppose I need to get around to posting some of the things I collected in March and April.
    I've had a busy schedule and so while I've had time to buy a few things, I just haven't had time to clean them all up and take pictures.

    A lot of Lady Schicks. A friend of the wife's wanted one and so did the wife so I had to replenish my stock. Two pink K2's and one ivory K2, one ivory K1, an ivory Eversharp Hydro-magic 500, and an ivory Eversharp Schick Golden 500. The ES Golden is darker than the Hydro but I'm not sure if that's by intent or just aging.
    I've had my eye out for an ivory 500 for a long time and didn't realize there was more than one version so I was pretty pleased to stumble onto these.


    A few more injectors. A B2 that needs a good cleaning, a user-grade StickSchick, a chrome and black L, and a user-grade golden 500.


    A couple of user-grade Kronas, a pink Lady Gillette, a SuperSpeed, and a GEM Junior. The Kronas and the SS will be for giveaways along with a couple of the Lady Schicks and the black Golden 500.


    The GEM Junior is very shiny on the bottom side but there's some serious gunk on the top side that will take some careful work to not remove the finish with it.

    And then a few more things.

    A couple of travel razors. A never used Gillette and a cute little kit that looks like a book. It also looks like a Gillette but it's a knockoff from Germany. You'll also notice that what initially appears to be a full pack of blades is actually only one blade with some foam behind it. Very tricky.

    And then a Woodbury shave stick holder and a Gillette blade case.


    And for some reason, I can't stop buying these things... another travel kit in a brush. This one has very supple leather and everything is in great shape plus it came in it's original box.

    And finally, an empty Currier & Ives A/S bottle, a full Cavalier A/S bottle, and a half full Old Spice Burley telescope.

    My first birth year and quarter razor, a C4 Flair Tip. Pretty good shape, nickle plating still intact and no brassing, and still haven't cleaned or polished it. Just a good wipe with a microfiber cloth. Hopefully I will have it re-finished by my birthday.

    I have been using a Parker Variant loaned to me by @Str8on2 since last week. I was offered this one by @DesertTime and I took it. It arrived today and goes into service tomorrow. The top plate was marked wrong and he was able to get a new one to replace it without giving up the old, so, he very graciously offered it to me. Thanks again to both @Str8on2 and @DesertTime for their generosity.

    I shaved with it for the first time this morning! I liked it, its my first non can goo shave with a DE. I felt like I had to use a fair amount of water but Im learning technique so prob not as much as I thought. No nicks no burn, may have to stockpile a bit next time its on sale again.

    Is that from AP Shave? If you have the tuxedo I'm curious of the comparison

    My "Birthday Blitz" has arrived! Happy to have the Stirling items(Sandpiper A.S. w/menthol), and the synthetic "lil brudder" brush. I have to get used to the scent of the soap from Local Gent Co..(Fields&Streams). It's kind of like sour cream in there. But then I thought the Stirling Barbershop was akin to tunafish, and THAT has turned out to be great. The Fields&Streams is nice and cool which is nice. Must be "tallow" aspect(to explain the odd smells at first). Oh, I forgot, Doc Ezlovan tossed in a small Naked&Smooth bath soap.

    To be quite honest; I thought the tuxedo was soft, but I think the synthetic horse hair tad softer.
