    Yeah the chrome plating on the MMOC is particularly fine, in the grand scheme of things that alone made the purchase worthwhile.

    Some goodies arrived today!
    @gwsmallwood allowed me to try out his Heritage Gibbs. He also generously included a couple of Fine soaps. There is also another soap that isnt pictured that i forgot to show but its a lovely redwood / saffron scented soap.

    The 1949 Milord tech has some gold loss on the head but works and the case is in good condition. The 2 ss look good but i really only wanted the Mcgregor Jar to transfer soaps/creams into. I have already filled it with a couple of ounces of Paa Awesome sauce.

    Hope it's had a nice trip.

    That Vib'Raz I ordererd from the collector in Macau is on its way back to Macau after a Statue of Liberty visit for reasons unknown.

    I have a Priority Mail package that has been sitting in my local USPS Distribution Center since last Saturday. Stopped in and talked to my local postmaster yesterday about it and he told me that they only have one sorting machine now after three of their four machines were removed last year, and that one lone machine is broken so they are having to do everything by hand. Then factor in employee shortage... This is the main USPS distribution center for Mississippi. All of the incoming mail goes there and then it is sorted and distributed out to local post offices. My package is finally out for delivery today.

    Without breaking our no politics rule, I will just say USPS is destroyed.

    After sitting at my local USPS Distribution Center since last Saturday, this West Coast Shaving mammoth razor arrived today. $13.59 plus shipping for the handle only on WCS web site. But I purchased it from WCS on Amazon with a $10 Amazon account credit I had. It was $13.11 shipped for both the handle and the head pieces. The 175S - solid 303 stainless steel handle. The open comb head pieces are zinc alloy with chrome plating. Apparently West Coast Shaving is now East Coast Shaving because it was shipped from South Carolina. lol

    I wanted it for the huge baseball bat handle. You know it is big when you look at the specs, but when you get it in your hand, it really puts it into perspective. Super duty heavy and large. Just wow. But gorgeous. A side-by-side with a Gillette old type...
