    Monday’s mail call is from West Coast Shaving; I got their Infinity brush model T66 with synthetic knot. I got it for 30% off during their brush sale. CBF2A045-17C2-4DB6-B9C7-EFC2D0051115.jpeg

    Hoping the shave matches the cool factor. Mild but effective is how it's generally described on the French forum.

    My dainteeshave DE razor arrived today. Another "that looks like it'll be a good head shaver" acquisition. And if it's not, it's oddball enough for the oddball razors collection. I don't think however that I will be using it as women were supposed to on their legs - the scrubbing back and forth action as shown in the instructions. Not really sure why they used what appears to be a bicycle reflector on the handle other than to signify danger I guess... Neat little spring loaded button on the end to press to release the cap and to lock the cap back in place.

    That thing looks dangerous.

    (I just realized how stupid that sounds coming from someone who used a SR!)

    The $.01 tech came but the seller did a little bait and switch. He removed the metal blade dispenser and threw in some nos thin blades and some Berkley blades. I contacted him and he ended up refunding me the purchase price plus the shipping. DE05A130-3FF9-4B14-B159-7A92FD650A57.jpeg

    Today's mail call features two wonderful Gillette razors compliments of Mike @Old School !

    First is a Gillette England № 88 two-piece razor which I needed to put into a mint № 88 set. I've documented the set and the razor received today in this thread:№-88.65784/

    Second is a 1936 Gillette USA Aristocrat! It is the second of three variants of this model. It too is in fantastic shape but ever since I had to give up my previous first variant 1934 USA Aristocrat that I had replated in rhodium, I've regretted it and wanted another one to also have replated in rhodium for full-time use in my shaving rotation again. Additionally, the gold blade box in this Aristocrat set is the same one that is in my Gillette Combination travel set. The Combination set is supposed to have two of the gold blade boxes but is missing one of them. Until now. So for this Aristocrat set, the razor will be mailed off Monday to Razor Emporium for replating in rhodium after I enjoy shaving with it over these few weekend days, and the gold blade box will move over to my Combination set to replace the one that is missing.

    Thank you for your offer Jorge! I don't really need it though. The Combination set was missing one but I took the one from the Aristocrat set for the Combination set since I no longer need it for the Aristocrat set. Going to put the Aristocrat case in my utility closet just to store it away but I don't really need it either.
