    The Official Secret Santa Thread 2019 edition is up and running, so if you've signed up for it, how about dropping some hints here to make it a little easier on your Secret Santa.

    A thought from one of the participants: you might consider to list allergies and belief preferences like "vegan", "no tallow", or "no boar". :)

    This thread isn't just for the Secret Santa participants, it's open to all the TSD members to post their Holiday Wish List!

    pretty please christmas_wish_list.gif.gif

    For our members that observe Hanukkah, feel free to list a gift for all 8 days. :D

    You can place the received gifts on the 2019 Holiday Gifts Page

    Mike, don't forget to leave a treat for the reindeer or you might be getting something other than gifts in your shoes.

    I’m not in secret Santa but my shaving holiday wish list

    A new straight. Dovo 88 or 91

    A not so beat up kamisori

    Learn to hone the beat up kamisori I have

    A jnat

    Since my Birthday is in December also. I recently bought myself feather SS kami, it came with a bunch of feather pro blades. Part b. Learn this razor so the blades stop biting me.

    merkur progress

    feather AS- D2 ... wish I could try before I buy

    Maybe some feather blades.

    Another cologne. Maybe something with some oud.

    I wish for continued spectacular shaving experiences for everyone here.

    I’m very thankful for the shaving bounty I have amassed, I am very happy and very much enjoy what I already have. I’m blessed to want everything I have.

    Short suggestion. I have Feather AC DX handle, very similar to the SS in overall metrics. Compared to any straight razor, it’s an incredibly small blade angle required. It’s almost like ‘riding the cap’ with a DE. I’d nearly call it ‘riding the blade holder’. Add in the Feather Pro sharpness, even more so. Pressure should be close to nonexistent. HTH.
