    "New Old Stock" is old product that is still sealed or otherwise preserved as it was when it was released, but it was never sold. It implied that some old, unsold stock was found and is as "new".

    Ahh. Thanks. The soap I bought seems new'ish (made at least in recent years). It's not decades old.

    Christmas Season, Day 4.

    Marzipan Shave Soap with Menthol Monday!

    Prep: Hot Shower and Bloom/Lather Building Water
    Soap: M. A. Space Soap Cow in Space
    Razor: Blackland Blackbird Brass (OC and SB)/Merkur Mustache and Eyebrow Razor
    Blade: Nacet (3)/Merkur Mustache and Eyebrow Blade (3)
    Brush: VdH Green Boar
    AS: AAFES Brisk
    ASB: Duke Cannon Ice Cold
    EdC: Polo Supreme Leather

    If you have never tried M. A. Space Soaps, I'd give it a whirl if you can get a hold of any. The owner, Mr. Robert Harding and his son make it in small batches in his house. His production has been down because he is working to help fight the CV-19 at his full time job. I think his company was one of the companies that helped make the current coming vaccines.

    Anyway, his soaps are all great. Be warned, he likes menthol. He made one called Ice Planet that is great for the summer months.

    Sorry Tim: New Old Stock.
    It seems brand new, but vintage.

    But you had a better definition!

    They had forecast sunshine, but this morning there was a beautiful fog. There was...
    Now the sun has come out!

    Today a pleasant shave, but without history: the brush has a small but very efficient knot and the other components are also more than tested.

    Kiss My Face Cool Mint Moisture Shave Cream
    B-400 Badger by Tom
    AutoStrop A1
    Personna GEM SS PTFE
    Osage Rub

    The Kiss My Face Cool Mint Moisture Shave Cream face-lathered well with B-400 Badger by Tom. Two passes and touch ups with the AutoStrop A1 razor with a Personna GEM SS PTFE blade gave me a close, comfortable shave. After a cold water rinse I finished off with Osage Rub. I am clean, smooth, and refreshed...

    Yaqi Heavy Metal - Erasmic - Triceratops 3D by Roger Quintero - GEM SSC #3 - Brut Attraction Totale A/S - Aloe Vera Gel
    Have always had a good shave with Erasmic. I bought a new one recently during a brief lockdown trip to Savers for the great value of £2.49. It performed well above its value and gave a great result with the very manoeuvrable Triceratops. Three shaves down with this super razor, well impressed.
