    The CF Lime I have came via @Keithmax. I turned something for him but said I couldn't think of anything at the moment I wanted in return. Well, that's not the way our Keith roles, and next thing I know there is a package in my box from Maggards with this cream. Awesome stuff.
    I'm not a fan of straight up Lavender, Blair, so I probably wouldn't venture that way with a CF cream. The Sandalwood/Cedar sounds interesting, though. I think my fave Sandalwood was the older Indian Sandalwood from Crabtree and Evelyn. I still get it in bath soaps occasionally and really enjoy it.

    I have never tried one and there are two of them. I'm debating on putting a blade in each head. Should have done that for mayhem.

    Excellent photo and lineup Jason. That is a gorgeous brush. I’m sure you’ll get the Goodwill dialed in shortly.

    That New Deluxe looks fantastic, Gary. Is the plating intact on the top cap, or does it have the Copper look that many develop when the plating goes?

    They re-hone this one only on request.

    They make razors from modern German and French blanks, but have a source for the old multiple strike forgings.
    The older forging process is supposed to yield a thinner and more flexible grind. The drawback being the potential for warp and cosmetic defects.
    Might not be for you if you dislike flex. I can't notice it though.
    One of the other straight fellas also known for nice stuff has 2 of them that he likes. He recommended it to me.
