    Just got in the mail today from The Holy Black Trading Co their limited edition Ultimate Creeper set. Complete with shave soap (which is more like a cream), aftershave, compact towel tablets and 80’s themed sunglasses. This set launched at 8pm Friday night; 20-30 minutes later all the sets were sold out and they may not recreate this set. 823B9803-AB0D-462B-9F2B-00FA992C5EFD.jpeg

    I guess you can call this a "Haul",, but yesterday I hauled in my small Clubman shave brush...a synthetic. The handle looks like that of the Stoylin "li'l brudder". Says it dries very fast-I'll be eager to see THAT for muhself. Glad I have it.

    Nice score, Gary. Those instructions look like they have never been opened.

    Oh them sales, I must be a Yaqi fan and bought this one about 3 weeks ago & just arrived. I wanted to try a 22mm 2band because some badger knots become huge when cleaned and used. Price was right to experiment with, will use it tomorrow. The knot is called a Yaqi ever-helpfull 22mm 2 band badger.
    Before and after cleaning the brush with shampoo.

    Mag-T. Kinda cheesy look and feel, plating not confidence inspiring and too much play on the blade posts. Magnet sure works. Shave tomorrow.[​IMG][​IMG]

    First run today with it, It is tightly packed knot with a loft of 47 mm, So what I noticed it will be a good scrubber and a reasonable painter. Yaki makes the Sagrada 22mm 2band in 50 mm loft knot and that would be a nice one with less back bone. This Yaqi Ever-helpful 22m 2 band is designed for the fellows who like a soft bristle feel with excellent scrubbing abilities IMO.(1st use is what I felt from the brush, but still enjoyable and a different face feel)
