Good luck with that!

We had a local soap maker's "shaving soap" gift bag as a door prize at a CBR meet up - I'm not sure that @lerenau has come back to another since 'winning' it ...
Yeah... It was basically handsoap with the word "shaving" on it.
I'm tempted to have a chat with them next time I see them and maybe suggest they try some Whispers or Squadron etc for reference.

Hopefuly @Ckoerntjes will have better with his soap - it's a different maker.

Wasn't expecting to be posting in acquisitions for a while but this 1963 Gillette Slim turned up with my Father In Law today. I told him he should be using it but he wants to pass it on and he knew I'd be interested. Even came loaded with a Gillette Spoiler from last use. The razor is in what looks like very good condition, operates very smoothly, adjusts smoothly and looks correctly aligned. Just needs some cleaning and TLC. Not sure whether I'll replate it or keep it as is. I was expecting I would never be in a position to receive a family razor so this is very welcome.

The Land of Extra Cheesy
Picked up a 30mm Super High Density Knot from Maggards

As well as a Boucher Brush fitted with a 27mm Landmark Essentials Knot

The loft showing on that knot looks too high or long for a 30mm fan, it’s going to splay pretty wide after broken in for a while may not be your liking soon.
