    I've seen this aftershave at a local market.
    With no break in the heat any time soon now is the season for menthol!

    Shouldn't this have a California style Warning Label? I was careful to not spill any on myself during the decanting process. Label transfer went as expected. Dish detergent cap fit the bottle and has a suitable flow restriction.

    Received a very special handle today.
    It was made by Cooncat Bob (BRW) in December of 2011 and he sadly passed away less than five months later in April of 2012.
    It will be treasured..and used, starting tomorrow morning.

    It's a rather substantial nickel plated brass handle and here it is paired with a nickel plated head from a Merkur 1904
    It might not come across so well in these pictures but it has that warm subtle 'glow' that only nickel plating brings out.

    The seller also, as a surprise, included an unused Merkur 1904 nickel plated handle and a brand new EJ DE89 head (chrome).
    In this picture I have it a bit Frankened up with the Merkur head on the BRW handle and the EJ head on the Merkur handle...

    Couple of days ago I had this delivered from Shavemac, relayed by Martin @Marverel (Danke sehr, mein Freund!)

    Abyss resin from exoticblanks, snowman shape and a 'unique' knot which is supposed to be somewhere between a D01 and a regular two band silvertip.

    Oh what a wonderful feeling against the face...

    CVS Pharmacy also has them (with their name on the package) for like $4.99, I think.

    I bought the last two and they were at Walgreens Platte and Circle. I bought them for a Gem G-Bar I have been waiting to try.
