    You are correct that is the first Old Spice mug. Mug 01 is the only Hull Pottery mug with "Ship Grand Turk" on it, from 1938-41. The Mug 02 with the "Ship Friendship" on it, from 1941-44. I also have a Mug 01, and they are not easy to find. Old Spice is nice!:eatdrink013:

    I don't remember where I saw it, on the net somewhere, but he had one in an original box, and a 3 foot version, from a display. He had rooms stacked with Old Spice. Just found it. He's on B&B here is a pic. You may want to sit down first.:scared011:

    Razor - Gold Dollar 800

    Soap - Proraso Green
    Brush - Wolf Whiskers Custom Silvertip
    Post - Cold rinse, Alum, Nivea, The Veg

    Another day with the GD800 and I'm liking it more every day. That's probably because, well you know, learning technique and all that. No issues this morning. I still find it a bit awkward to switch to the left on XTG, but that will come with repetition. Stropping is probably my main challenge. I have to concentrate on that to avoid rolling the edge but it's speeding up. Again, practice, practice, practice. My problem is I get bored and start looking at other razors. You know, that whole SQUIRREL problem.

    Hope you had a great Friday and have some fun this weekend!

    SOTN: To wrap-up to a hectic week at work—nothing like close to 1000 screaming, energetic kids for five days to make one appreciate the calm of a tranquil evening shave!

    Custom Joseph Rodgers 6/8", Valobra menthol soap and Fine 'Snake Bite' finish. Superb! :D

    Prep: gustafsons woodlands
    Razor: Gillette Black Beauty (6)
    Blade: Viking Sword (4th shave)
    Brush: Semogue
    Soap: Soap Commander Renewal
    Post: Osage Rub/ SC Courage balm

    2 pass shave today, went with the bright fresh scent of Renewal. Usually not a big floral fan, but this is one that stands out, very well made scent. Whipped up a nice lather with the Semogue with no problems. The VS Blade worked out well with this razor, and ended up with a smooth shave. Hope everyone else also has a great shave!

    Mongoose B2 with Triad Ti
    Feather Pro Super (4)
    Tres Amigos Ironwood Beehive with Envy White
    Mystic Water Lime
    Witch Hazel
    Folsom & Co. Shambala
    Whipped Shea Butter


    The Mystic Water Lime soap provided a nice slick lather. Since this tub is just about finished I will use it more often over the next couple of weeks to just finish it up. Sticking with my normal 2 pass shave, XTG & ATG, followed by minimal touch up ended in my normal near BBS shave. I finished up with a splash of F&C Shambala. A great shave to start the weekend. I hope everyone has a fantastic Saturday.

    Pre: MWF bloom water
    Razor: Bluebeards Revenge Shavette / GSB ; Merkur 23c / GSB
    Brush: Simpsons Special
    Soap: MWF
    Post: Jack Black Post shave Cooling Gel

    As I prepare to begin my SR journey (still waiting for a couple of items before I can begin honing). I decided to break out my Bluebeards Revenge shavette. I am just doing both cheeks for starters...and then finish up with a DE. I used a shavette fairly regularly a number of months ago...but I was going through a DE acquisition phase...hmmmm...enough said. Anyway...shave went well this morning. I used a GSB blade in the BB Revenge and corked it a couple of times to smooth the blade. Nice and smooth. Enjoy your Saturday. :chores016:
