Good photo of fine equipment.
Great shave and pictures @BigD.
Excellent photos @Venkat. Twelve shaves, good value.
Very good picture Guy. I can't find that bowl any more. Might be a classic.
Good picture James. I love the razor and case. Is that the correct case for the 40's Gillette?
Thank you, Doug!
Thank you, Marine.

Thanks Doug. I have wondered about the case myself. The set comes from a collector in the UK and the case seems to have the perfect cutout for the 2-piece handle (photo below}
And the handle seems to be somewhat rare. There are no photos of it on the Mr. Razor site that I could find. On another forum, I did find the photo below of a rare 1946 Gillette No. 26 set with the same handle:
RR Mamba .70 & Feather Hi-Stainless
Graydog 26mm Badger Chechen
Wickham 1912 Le Bleu LE shave soap
Bleu de Chanel a/s splash
Bleu de Chanel Eau de Parfum
Excellent smooth shave. You can never go wrong with a Feather in a Mamba. Ditto for Bleu de Chanel. A wonderful day and shaves to all...

Today is Day 27 of SEptember. Up for the challenge today is my Superior Lather Catcher.
The GZD Berber Stick face-lathered well with Jayaruh #415 Brush. Two passes and touch ups with the Superior Lather Catcher razor with a Personna GEM SS PTFE blade gave me a close, comfortable shave. After a cold water rinse I finished off with Pinaud Clubman Vanilla. I am clean, smooth, and refreshed...
Good setup and photo.
Great brush Jim.
