    My first purchase of razors showed up today so I can finally take my antique shop find for a ride, now how to decide on which ones to try first?

    Bluebirds are supposed to be amazing blades from what I've read time and time again!

    Sharp but not very smooth in the long run. I can use them 2 times in my Slim then it needs to go. Concord Blades are from the same factory (Derby) as Bluebirds and are somewhat smoother but harder to find.


    This one lasts one additional shave.

    blanka I will not eat my shaving products. Promise.

    Dark picture, but 3 more R160 ASBs (couldn't resist), a tube of Euro Gillette Regular and one Extra Sensitive, two tubes of Italian Palmolive Classic and a tube of the famed 444 Balm. That's it, I'm now on a purchasing sabbatical! (maybe)

    My TSD order came in and couldn't be happier with the Wheat cream scent.The last wheat I had was cedarwood and I PIF'd it away as it was not a scent that I could enjoy . IMG_0165 (Small).JPG

    My final order which was placed before I decided to slow down for a while has been delivered: A Merkur Vision (2000), which also completes my trio of Adjustables I have recently acquired. Now, I'll enjoy playing with what I have and discovering the various settings on those 3 adjustables in addition to the rest.

    Yesterday brought two packages.

    The first from Gem Star Customs is a W.H. Morley & Sons Straight razor. My first, guess I'll see how bloody I can get with this. It is a fine looking razor, I'm looking forward to learning how to use it.

    Next came a Muhle R89 DE with a few blades to sample.

    Another beautiful restore from Glen. You're going to have an awesome shave with it - just take the time to go over some youtube videos, particularly Geofatboy who does a decent job with straight razor suggestions for shaving and you'll do fine. There's of course always advice for no pressure with DE's....with straights it's the law. ;)

    I had gotten a couple of these vintage 1960s Schick Krona blades and since they were still sealed in their wrapper, I decided to try one out. I was very pleased with the result. So here's 4 sealed packs I scored and received. Really a damn fine blade. Made in Sweden, which could have something to do with how awesome they are.

    It's also the brother to your Double Duck. :D
    I rescued it from the antique store at the same time.

    Well then. You keep finding sweet hidden gems! They're both beautiful razors now that they've had Glen's TLC package.

    Actually, the Morley looked in pretty darn good condition when I got it.
    The Duck definitely got some treatment.

    I like rescuing shaving stuffs from the antique shops. I don't collect or buy much for myself, but I like passing them along to others I know will love them or find them good homes.

    I think it's awesome they both ended up with TSD members. :2thumbs:

    I hope you'll enjoy the razor and let us know how it treats you.
