    That's some beautiful kit, Gary. You must be on very good terms with the folks at the antique shops ;)

    Nice shave Tim!

    I always use a new Feather blade, even the trial run on all the DE's.
    After you make your peace with them,
    they are a great go to blade.

    I know your going to reduce, but, but the MMOC......
    :sad024:
    Let's hope they all find a good home.
    ;)

    Great post!
    Good luck on the straights.

    It's been great fun following along this month, Tim! I have to say I could understand the goal of ending the month with three razors if you only started with one but the other way around is tough for me to grasp. :)

    Good luck on your shavette focus. I'll join in with a few shavette shaves this month to show some 30DC solidarity.
    Nice haul, Gary!
    Glad you're feeling better!

    If I try to do a "no buy" or thin out the den, I end up buying more stuff than I would have without trying to do the opposite.
