    Hello I'm from the Southern England and have been lurking around your fine forum for a bit so I thought it about time I registered.

    I started DE shaving about 8 weeks ago and have already amassed enough kit to have Mrs Jeltz complain about the amount of "stuff" in the bathroom cabinet :ashamed001

    My kit includes

    Feather Popular razor
    Edwin Jagger DE 89

    Crabtree and Evelyn 'Nomad' Soap
    "Mr Taylors" Shaving cream
    Palmolive stick and cream
    Boots Soap and ASB

    Numerous AS/EDT I've been given over the years.

    A whole bunch of blades I'm working my way through so far my preferred ones are Treet Black Beauties, Feathers and Gillette 7 o'clock yellows.

    All the best

    Welcome to TSD!
    The list you gave isn't that big, your wife will be lucky if you can control yourself to keep the collection that small.

    Thanks for the welcome guys

    Ooop sorry missed off Wars shaving cream, Vulfix 2235 Super Badger Brush, Vulfix 404 Boar brush and a wilkinson sword brush (boar) which I bough years ago and recently found. Oh and a block of Alum.... I think that's it for the moment.

    Tell me, my friend--is it difficult to find the Erasmic shaving soap bowls in the UK now?

    Its reasonably easy, I have found them in a couple of independent chemists.

    The large chains do not stock them. I understand that there was a change in the formula of the sticks, the new ones don't contain tallow, but I don't know if that's the same with the bowls.

    Ah, the bowls are glycerine based. Such a beautiful scent, and wonderful lather, with a great post-shave feeling. I have still 2 tallow sticks!

    OK well with a recommendation like that I'll make sure to pick one up next time I see one. Despite being really cheap the Boots soap is my top latherer.

    I know the Boots soap also. It smells good, and lathers good, but I think I prefer the Erasmic soap. I remember the Boots Cool Cologne cream, but I did not like it so much.

    Well I've just picked up an Erasmic bowl, and I'll give it a go tomorrow. I've had a sniff though and it reminds me of my grandfathers bathroom. :D
