    Our collections are definitely investments. Realistically, we won't lose money if we decided to sell off our stuff. It still would be true, if we sold our stuff at a discounted price because we used our gear for literally pennies per shave. It's a win-win!

    Early to work and shave about three hours later.
    Prep was a splash of water.
    Lather, as usual, was excellent.
    This has been said so many times, I hesitate to reiterate it, but here it goes:
    If this was the only soap I used for the rest of my life, I would be just fine.
    There, I said it.

    The level of aggression from yesterday's Canadian Tech to today's SR was markedly greater.
    More care is needed when wielding the Gillette.
    The new Wizamet, inspite of the irritating glue dots, was outstanding.
    Not pictured is the Aqua Velva AS.

    It arrives mid-June at topofthechain in Canada. I might be on the waitlist for the soap...

    Thanks, Gary! They’re surprisingly good shavers, although I don’t like the FHS-10 blades!

    Thanks, Andrew, me too! Had a fine shave with it! Just need to figure out how to use Gem blades in this particular model! No problem using them in the later ones!

    Everything looks great, Joseph. Those newer Wizamets appear to be discontinued now as well. One soap forever? The good news is you will never have to find out.

    fair enough Jeff.i don't use the valet/feather blades enough to have a real opinion about them,but enjoy the set up as a change..

    Very nice, Jeff. There must have been a fair number of Valets made here in Canada as I used to see them all the time in antique stores for reasonable prices. I didn't ever pull the trigger, and I'm not even sure why, truth be told. Such a cool looking mechanism on them.

    Jason:
    You might be surprised at the great shaves they deliver! They used to be a major competitor of Gillette.
