I always do. Eventually. Hi again TSD. Hi again old friends. Hi for the first time new friends.
How's it going, Jody??
I had stepped away for a couple of years, myself.
Still a lot of the same old crew.
All is well!
I was looking through my Google calendar and saw my TSD anniversary noted (11 years!!) so I figured I'd show up and see what all is new, catch up with folks, PIF and/or trade some Voskhod blades because I still have way too many (1,300) from the group buy we held years ago, and of course looking for a few specific razors for use. As you know, I don't collect anymore but recently - and this tells you how much I have been paying attention - I did add the two new Gillette DE razors to my display cabinet, to compliment the few vintage Gillette razors I kept from my collecting days.
Hope you are well!
Great to see you posting again!
I'm well, thanks.
Since my return, what has been the biggest surprise is the lack of fresh threads. There are so many threads that have been around for years and have notched up thousands of posts. That does show the popularity of those threads, though.
hello and welcome back..
Welcome home @IAmTheJody
I hope you are well @IAmTheJody
Do you have any of the Tet a Tet left? You had a heck of a collection at one point.
Glad to see your post @IAmTheJody I miss the familiar faces.
Well, well, well. Look what the Womp rat dragged in!
I'll say hello, maybe for the first time?
I went on a hiatus for a couple myself, and rad kicked in again.
I tell myself all I want is a toggle and I'll stop but...
Curious, you say you're looking for a couple of razors, what are you itching for?

Hi @IAmTheJody! Glad to see you around. I am here less than I used to be, but think this is still the best wetshaving forum around. It's always great to see familiar faces here!
Awesome to see you again!
I've got 4 tubes of TaT shaving cream left and 8 tubes of the aftershave balm left.
I was actually thinking about doing a PIF on the aftershave balm. I just don't use it enough to hang on to that much. Not really a big aftershave person anyway, especially since they killed off the original Proraso Crema Liquida Dopobarba. When I am done shaving, I usually drench myself in some Hugo Boss cologne or Sauvage cologne.
Thanks bud! I'm still using my brush you restored for me 9 years ago! Hope you're well!
A 1934 Gillette Aristocrat TTO. Worst decision I ever made in wet shaving was getting rid of mine. That's the number one I'm looking for.
A 1930s British Gillette No. 77 or No. 88 2-piece.
A 1914-1921 Gillette Bulldog 3-piece.
Schick Type D and Type F injector razers.
Any T-4 date code (1973, birth year) Gillette.
Only some of the hardest to find in good condition. lol
Whatever gets you out of bed in the morning lol.
Welcome back @IAmTheJody Hope you are well.
Good to see you again Sir!
