Where, how do you find these!
Just Luck with this One..These Normally Go for a Bit of Doe in this Nick with Half the Planet Bidding..This One was Kinda Hidden with Only a Few Bidders on it..I Knew this was a Minter..Very Rare to Find One of these in this Nick..Might Hone it Later Today..
I made lather in both and it works great, not much more to say about them. I like them better then the Turkish ones because of the weight. Very happy with my acquisition
I am looking the turkish ones on ebay, but it is difficult to decide how thin/lightweight they are!?
Two fountain pens and two ball pens (mix of pre-owned and brand new), one of which is this NOS LE piece:
Visconti Opera Master Demonstrator, "F" nib, Platinum 950 metal finish.
Gorgeous pens. [/QUOTE]
That was the Visconti, the below are the other three:
- Waterman gold-plated, vintage (pre-owned), ball pen. Refills are discontinued but it takes Cartier ones, so we're sorted (albeit at €10 each).
- Marlen fountain pen, 925 solid silver cap, "F" nib, pre-owned.
- Pelikan ball pen, new, contemporary series.
The Mrs bought me some more Rose for Christmas
My new Zenith 507 TS synthetic from Yourshaving.com. A surprise sample of Yourshaving's LE Tabula Rasa cream 'August' was included. Nice touch.
Acquired Supply & General before Xmas.
This arrived today a rather nice Schlick N , have been searching for a while.
Rockwell 6c (super backer prototype - they shipped in 6s boxes).
Here are my acquisitions this month all in Gifts&care shop. Excellent shop, very recommended.
Proraso red soap
Puma green paste for the straight razor
Received this as-new Sir Kenneth Grange designed Courier electric razor in the mail and it is stunning in design and condition
It came with the rare outer hard-shell as well. Couldn't be happier.
Even put it to use today and even though it's not capable of giving you a shave as close as you might get when wetshaving with your razor of choice - it was really fun to use and did a really decent job.
Another Ever Ready stropper:
