    That straight edge is a bit dicey looking. May have to remove a bit o' metal to get to a solid edge.

    Here's another 'Extra Hollow Ground' razor— this Wostenholm 'Pipe' round-point arrived this morning. Thin, bone scales and a blade in need of some clean-up. I do like the jimped thumb notch!

    I just ordered my second blue one. I was thinking of asking Delta Echo Razor Works to give it a more masculine look.

    Just received some second hand soaps in the mail today: 2 pucks of I Coloniali, and 5 oz of Myrsol shaving croap (from the kilo tub). Tried the I Coloniali a few minutes ago and it is a great soap.

    I received an Extra Hollow Ground in the mail today as well. This one by Wade and Butcher. Pretty decent shape, but the edge needed a little touch up and a good stropping.

    I've been trying to cut back on my RAD but excellent bargains keep presenting themselves to me. I won a double auction last week for $27 shipped which consisted of a 40's Rocket and what is most likely a gold pre-war Ball End Tech (USA). The Rocket is really what I was after and is in excellent shape and cleaned up great. The gold plating on Tech is about 70% gone but mechanically it's in excellent shape too. I have to go on a "No Buy 2016" ( or at least until July) as I've obtained 7 new razors over the last 2-months and have a lot of stuff to try out.

    The Snake Bite is supposed to be a menthol atomb bomb and the Shambala is milder but still cooling. The Paradise Frost soap is supposed to be cooling but I'll only know to what extent tomorrow!
