    Haul for August Rule:

    Our own Jorvaljr and I did a small blade swap. He sent me a nice old Personna Precision blade (wicked cool looking blade, I look forward to shaving with that one) and some equally nice Philco brand carbons. I wanted them for the label but they're also mint so they too will be shaved with eventually.

    A quest has been fulfilled. :love055:

    This arrived in my mail box today:

    Hmmm, I wonder what could be inside?

    It's British so it's got that going for it. Wait, could it be?

    Why yes, it sure looks like it. The Sun Ray aka Goddess has arrived. :happy036:

    Oh, looking mighty fine... :drool:

    OK, now you're just showing off. :D

    These are about as minty as they come. I really do not think they were ever used. The tension spring in the head was too tight initially to properly close with a vintage blade inserted. Shiny, shiny, and nary a scratch anywhere to be found. I am a very happy guy to be adding these to my den. A big tip of the hat to @twhite for his magnanimous assist and to the ever ready @Billyfergie for his transshipment and loving care of some wedge blades he sent along for the ride - and for holding onto to this without absconding with it. :happy097:

    Happy shaving one and all - Karl

    Well, this arrived in the mail last night, but I didn't open it till after midnight GMT, so it counts for an August haul

    It's Maggards green apple soap from my good friend @Herm2502 . If you like the scent of green apples.... If you like the smell of an apple orchard in the Berkshires in mid October, then this soap is for you. Intense? Without a doubt! Is it for everyone? Nope!

    I can't wait to try it out later this week.

    Thanks Herm!

    This beautiful razor arrived today:


    What I was able to figure out so far: At the beginning of the 20th century there was a Makrauer Barber Supply Company in Pittsburgh. So I guess these guys imported razors from Germany and sold them under their own label.
