    This weekens I went to the antique mall and found a few items. The first is an Old Spice shaving mug. I have been looking for one EVERYWHERE (a shaving mug that wasn't a rip-off price) and stumbled accross this beauty for $8. Then I saw these 2 razors for a few bucks a piece. I got the rocket for a friend, but decided to clean it up and shave with it to test it. One side was smooth, but the other side was terrible. Upon closer inspection the doors on one side were a little wonky and not closing right, so I ended up just tossing it. The lady's Gillette however is VERY nice. I mentioned to my 3 year old that it was a girls razor and she asked if she could have it. Let's just say I am hanging on to it until she starts like 13 years! LOL! But no, it is beautiful!

    Ditto Ya'll!

    Dude! Don't throw it out! It is fixable! The doors can be adjusted!!!

    My Appleton Barber order is here. I am not sure how I ended up with two bottles of Master's Iceland Breeze, but here there are and they smell like mentholated Lilac'!. Also have a Master Focus... smells like Old! Master's Champagne is totes bangin' though! Grabbed a pair of alum blocks too, one for Dale and one for me!

    GREAT and very personal Haul today. First, I finally got a wedge with TSD signature from Tet-a-tet group buy.

    Second, my father has found and sent me a very old (he said about 40-50 years old) slant. The razor was sitting in bathroom cabinet for years and in poor condition now. I'd like to ask if it can be restored and if someone can help to identify it.

    Enjoy the shaves.

    :angry017::angry032: Too's in the dumpster. But I guess it is good to know for future purchases that it can be fixed.

    Amazing haul Dmitry, very nice razor you got yourself. May it bring you many great shaves as i know the tet-a-tet you shipped over will :D.

    I am just waiting on my Boosters samples from Jeff that he bought and shipped to me. Should arrive late this week or early next week. Keeping my fingers crossed.

    A little background first ....

    Jeff has always written me notes, there is one just about everyday in my lunch (which he packs for me). I travel quite a bit for work, especially this year, and from the beginning (in 2008); anytime I have went out of town he would sneak notes in my suitcase for me. They are dated so that everyday I am gone, I have a new note. For example, when I interviewed for my current Center Manager position I had to fly to Chicago and he wrote me notes for certain times of the day (it was an 8 hour interview with different heads of this division) for encouragement and to make me laugh. (Isn't he great?) And I always have a "Freebie" note that I can read anytime and then a note that I keep on my person on the trip home (have I mentioned that I have a profound fear of flying?) and read on the plane.

    When I landed in Chicago for my layover on Sunday, I turned on my phone and I had a text from Jeff .... he had my notes all written and bundled together ... and he forgot to put them in my bag. He was devastated. He apologized until I imagine he was blue in the face, I told him not to worry that it would be alright. He insisted that as soon as I got all checked in here in Appleton and gave him my room number he would overnight them to me.

    So, today I received in the mail .....

    Jeff, was it a special order? Never seen Klar on Billgoose's site!

    He has some Klar products left, but sadly, this is the last of Klar Kabinett. I shall have to ration myself with the Klar and the Voskhod for the rest of my days on Earth.

    Jeff, I think you have enough software and blades to hold until 2312 :) After your Frankensoap pic, it seems you can compete with Jeff's/crackstar stash! It is easy to solve the problem with the soap - trade or sell it! Klar seems to be quite rare in US, so I think many of fellows will be glad to get some! Besides, I cannot say, I've seen Klar on many sites, moreover, it is the first time when I see someone got Klar in Haul thread!

    A couple of items this week (hurried-pictures, sorry about the quality)...

    Left: A 1967 Gillette Slim Adjustable, Germany version. Unique and sort of rare case with sliding front "door". The razors in these were actually made in the US and then shipped to Germany where the cases were made.

    Right: Birth year (1973) Gillette Knack
