    My understanding -based on what others have said on other threads on TSD- is that there hasn't been a big announcement. It appears that Bryon has quietly stopped responding on his website.

    Gillette NEW LC in Gun-Kote Bronze by Delta Echo Razor Works
    Voskhod Teflon Coated DE (1)

    JR #160 Louisville Slugger handle w/Omega 10098 boar knot
    Truefitt & Hill Sandalwood
    Alum, Thayers WH, USB, Clubman & Ermenegildo Zegna Uomo EDT


    Wow! I had a fantastic shave with some favorite gear this morning. Two glorious passes and a few touch-ups, and everything worked well together. When the angle is right on the NEW LC, I cannot feel the blade at all. The Voskhod blades were extremely smooth as expected. Everything should have a coat of Teflon on it.

    JR # 160 is a favorite - a handle made by our very own @Jayaruh from bat wood I obtained at my hometown Louisville Slugger museum (see photo below) paired with a wonderful Omega '98 boar knot. This brush will make lather out of anything, and I had loads of it from the T&H Sandalwood in nothing flat.

    In addition to my SOTD photo, I'm showing a photo of the NEW LC prior to its spa treatment. It was a well-loved razor for many years, and it continues to be well-loved in my Den.

    I finished up with all the normal stuff except for the EDT. Does it pair well with Clubman? Does anything? The Clubman scent has long since gone (YES!), and I'm left with a very pleasant summertime "aqua" scent from the EDT. It's not a product I'd re-purchase (I got it for a song, so I can't complain), but it's nice enough to use up.

    I'm feeling much better today. Thanks, gentlemen, for yesterday's well wishes. I hope you all are having a blessed day.

    That's a sweet looking Flaretip, Gary. They are mighty fine razors.

    Thanks, Jason!
    I haven't gone that far with my brush and soap matching. I just check to see if I have something close and I'll use that.

    Thanks, Jason! I think you may be right. It just came to me last night to try the twin blade with the Personna and it certainly worked. It was a little difficult to load as the plastic magazine is more flimsy than a metal magazine. But otherwise it worked very well.

    Great looking Black and White with a good razor and brush combination Gary. How did you get the red on the bike?

    Very nice, Charlie. Glad to hear you are feeling well today. That Delta Echo razor is also becoming rarer- looks like they aren't that active anymore, either. North Shore razors is the only place I know of that is doing Cerakote razors still.

    Doug, what a super cool set up. Love the razor, brush, and bowl combo. I hope you're doing well, my friend. I bet you guys are having some beautiful weather this time of year.

    I thought for a moment they might be talking about just their GEM collection or maybe his Ever Ready collection.
    Not every razor they own. :think002:

    Oh my, oh my my..
