    Mailman just got here. I had to send a big thanks to ItalianBarber. I didn't expect them to upgrade my shipping and manage to get it here in time for me before I left on Saturday, but it arrived a few minutes ago! Instead of getting a off the shelf sampler pack I just grabbed a big stack and tossed 'em in my cart, along with another DE87 (The wife wanted one for herself so I couldn't say no to her) and some EJ Sea Buckthorn shaving cream. LET THE BLADE SAMPLING BEGIN MWAHAHAHAHAHA. These extra 90 should last me a decent bit of time :)

    Not surprised to hear this. is definitely one of the best vendors I've dealt with. They are my go-to for Proraso ASLCB.

    If you've never used Bolzano blades before, keep in mind they are very sharp. Some consider them on par with Feather and KAI blades. The people that don't think this are usually older shavers who think they lost some sharpness when they stopped making them in Italy and started making them in Germany. As I wasn't wet shaving when they were made in Italy, I haven't a clue. But I've used them often since they have been making them in Germany and they are quite sharp.

    "Candygram for Blanka! Candygram for Blanka!" Mailman just arrived with a fresh package of shaving goodies from ! They were running a fantastic special on 7 O'clock Yellows (which they are still running, FYI). It also became a perfect excuse for me to order the Grim Reaper...I mean, the Merkur 37C. I also got some Med Prep Personnas that I've been hearing so much about and some Voskhods (still kicking myself for not getting in on the group buy). I love La Toja AS so much that I decided to order a stick of their shave soap. As usual, I got some extra goodies with my order: A pack of KAI and some Lord Platinums. The 37C came with two packs of Supermax Platinums and a single Merkur blade.

    To be honest I can't see the Bolzanos being my go to blade just for the sheer fact of their prices. I'm hoping the Astras, Rapiras or Sharks perform as well for me as they do others, but I couldn't order without at least trying them a few times in some razors.

    Hit the TSD store. 100 Voskhod for $12.00 - if JoAnna has any left. I haven't looked lately but I don't know if she's re-opened the store for 2012 yet either.

    J.A..HENCKELS DE razor, I bought this just before I flew to Poland and asked the vendor to delay postage untill the the new year, so I'd be in to recieve it, very good of him to do so (The vendor is a member on here and the shaving room "sunburyboy93")

    04012012379.jpg 04012012380.jpg I already posted this on the Chatterbox Thread...Last Wednesday The Mail brought me this beautiful 1938 Gillette Senator which our Jody gave me as a Christmas Gift.....I'm posting this again here for posterity.....Best to everyone and Thank You again Jody....
    These were taken with my cell phone and really do not do this justice....Theres so much shine they look hazy and you can see the reflection of the phone on the handle....But believe me this baby is in excellent condition....She's a looker and a shaver and has captured my heart....:) And the biggest thing of course, is that it's a gift from a friend...

    If Voskhod is what you desire, I am pretty sure there are plenty to be had, you probably just need to post a want to buy thread.

    Palmolive Regular Shave Cream (Austrian)
    Palmolive Menthol Shave Cream (Italian)

    Ah that DE87 is beautiful. It's my go to razor...performance is enough to have me consider selling my 38C and just have vintage ones on display with occasional/rare usage! Interested to see what you think of the creams as well! I'm starting to slowly ditch soaps completely unless in stick form - becoming addicted to face lathering cause I love the massage!
