    It was. Thank you. I let my like for Japanese razors spill over into my fishing gear. I bought a Tenkara rig and look forward to trying it out.

    Most people never get the opportunity see a wild eagle. About 12:30, after the snow, appeared that he was scouting the large snow-covered open area just to his right. Bad time to be a lost chihuahua.

    NCoxSTL AAACK!

    Very cool. Although for the lost Chihuahuas in the area - all is NOT quiet in Colorado.

    I have seen a eagle take a prairie dog. He circled at such height, the colony had no clue until it was way too late. "Eagle Eyes" is a real thing.

    If it makes you feel any better, it's not made with otter tallow. ;)
    I see that Jason did comment to this. I remember him mentioning that despite the horrible graphics, the product itself is good.

    I would expect nothing less.

    Now that you mention it, it has been awhile since the "Weapon Jr." has made an appearance. ;)

    Thank you!
    I was pretty excited when I saw the little pile of razors on a table at the auction. I was not only hoping that they'd be sold as a lot, but that there might not be much interest in them. Turned out I was right...sold as a lot and only one person bid against me. Actually, it was amazing how cheap everything was going that day. You could tell the auctioneer was getting annoyed as the sale went on. Each and every item he was selling, people were waiting until he dropped down to a dollar before bidding. I only walked away with the two lots of razors, but there were some incredible deals to be had.

    Another wonderful report on the blade trial, Neal! Did you already place your order for 1000 of them? :D

    Great photo and shave (mostly ;)), Brian! And, congrats on the new fishing rod. Going to a location this week where you can put it to use?

    Beautiful setup and photo, Keith! Tabac soap and a Thater. Such a wonderful combo. Then you went "grandma's purse" all the way with the Tabac cologne. Nice.
    Darn nice straight too!
