    thevez2 uses Gillette's new Tarantula Razor - 8 blades!!

    Lime is one of my favorite scents.... so I doubt that will happen, lol.

    That Cooper, is it a 3 piece? If so I'd put that up against any adjustable on 9. Super good shaver, just challenges your technique.

    Yep, the 3 piece. I like aggressive but it's more beastly than I want. I look forward to someone's review on it. I kept the handle, it's what I was after anyway.

    I am confused.. less then 2 hours with the box and he has made up his mind... the thing has not even had time to cool down :)
    Let me know how I*V 15 (the peacock) works out for you.

    Is that the colorful brush?

    And I always make up my mind pretty quick on The Box.

    Very soft, I have to try it now that my trusty old Omega it's starting to shed a little. What's the story on it? Did you make it?

    I was about to ask "How much longer is it going to take you to figure out what you want out of the box?"...

    Nice choices and nice additions

    I need one of those Barbicide shot glasses.

    The full size ones are fairly common but I've only ever seen this dinky one.

    Box has a tiny bit more room but I had to save some goodies for the next one.

    I go by smell on the soaps, and two of them my daughter (who now shaves her legs but don't tell her I told you) loved the avocado and the spicy one. The wee Rubberset is hers too.

    Great choices, and interesting additions! I'm into aggressive DE razors so I'll probably take that Cooper for a shave. Been looking for a Monobilt, but a 3pc might satisfy, too.

    All that in the 2nd photo was what you added, and there's still other stuff besides?

    Yes, what I added just fit and topped off the box.

    Are you going to re-knot the cream Rubberset?

    No plans to, it seems okay as is.

    I have the 3 piece Cooper, it is a darn fine shaver. I'll get a Monobilt one day soon as well.
