    Nice haul!

    Those Schick Kronas are one of my absolute favorites (along with Gillette Flares) ........ I find them hard to pass up when I see them sold dirt cheap.

    I'm up to six of them but I'm going to keep a few and gift the rest. Something I hadn't been aware of is the earlier, pre-Krona Schick DE razors with the metal twist knob and different lift/door mechanism are heavier and have a nicer feel in the hand. It's something like 38 grams for the newer Krona and 56 for the older ones. Not a massive difference but certainly noticeable. It makes it slightly head-heavy and I get a slightly more efficient shave with it.

    Same here on the weight ..... my favorite standard Krona is the gray Eversharp Schick. I recent repaired one that was missing its knob (HERE) and with the extra weight it's become a serious favorite.

    Mike @Aztecmike was generous to make copies of his booklet for my Berkeley Custom Shaver in color and send me 2 copies in case I mess up as I cut and sort into booklet format. Thanks so much Mike for taking the time to help a fellow shaver out. Much appreciated !!

    I won a giveaway from the Dougie’s Shavin YouTube channel for a Hendrix Classics & Co brush and soap. I’m not sure what type of knot is in the brush but it’s stiffer than my other brush, a PAA Atomic Rocket. It’s also a lot smaller but very nice to hold. The soap smells great. I’m not good at recognizing or describing fragrances so the best I can say is it has citrus and a nice woodsy blend. It lathers easily, is very slick, and has a pleasant residual feeling on the skin. Definitely high quality stuff.

    Wow! Those made it from Iowa to Kentucky in less than 48 hours... Pretty impressive for the USPS. Yup, although I have complete confidence in your handling of sharp objects I sent two copies just in case one is lost to a freak act of nature or other unforeseen circumstance. :D
    Edit: LOL. Actually made it there in under 72 hours. The older I get, the more I lose track of my days. :shocked029:

    Unidentified razor arrived from Russia & Wizamet W-11 arrived from Hungary. The head on the razor from Russia is almost identical to that of one of my Rotbart's and provided an excellent shave this morning 20211109_173204.jpg

    Tuesday mail call is from eBay; with my casino winnings from last Thursday night I bought myself a 1962 Gillette Slim Aristocrat Adjustable. The seller even threw in extra blades both vintage and modern along with the case. 75247B75-2B20-4725-B5E0-A100C04DC18B.jpeg
