Someone must love you A LOT!
I must have been a very good boy. Here's a few pressies I had off Santa.
Saponifico Varesino 70th anniversary soap and balm
Castle Forbes Lavender cream
YSL LA Nuit DE L' Homme EDT
Thierry Muller Pure Malt EDT
Johnny Marr Adrenaline Baby live CD.
In addition to my secret Santa, I got Eucris EdT and cream.
Finally arrived , so what to try first hmm
Semogue 2 band 2016 LE, excellent brush.
Tipsoft handle, Tuxedo synthetic knot. This brush messed with my head, original knot lost around 15 hairs per use so had to go. Steamed for an hour no result. Dremmel, battery died no result. Electric drill part result. Caustic soda result. How it lost hairs, needing the above assault is beyond me but very happy with the result. Set the knot low and glue is now drying.
@Nishy is it the 24mm knot, and what loft did you set it at? I set my 24mm at 53-54mm but I suspect it would work well over quite a range of lofts.
Yep listed as 24mm extra dense Paul, however measures 26mm. I set it at 55mm as it seemed to suit this loft in terms of my backbone preference.
Thanks @Northam Saint !!
I also ordered this sNotrag/hanky from Sean and it is perfect!
"The General" in silver, from Colonial Razors, is here.
Very minor surface blemishes, kind of like the Merkur or Ikon "seconds" Paul @ConnaughtShaving sells from time to time.
Replaced the handle with the ATT Kronos SS, let's see how this head design shaves, will test it later today or tomorrow.
Two copper shavemugs from Hammered Mules.
Nice DOC very mild razor. Despite it's appearance, it's possibly the mildest razor I've ever used. No chance of BBS but a good choice for sensitive or easily irritated skin.
