So, I couldn't find a specific Den/Collection thread, but if there is one, mods please feel free to move.

A bathroom cleaning necessitated the need to move all my shave gear out temporarily and I thought I'd take a picture before putting everything back. I don't have a proper 'den'. I have a stand, brush (2x other brushes on brush holders - to rotate), razor and about 6 soaps in rotation on the counter, with the rest of my gear put in the back of the cabinet under the sink with the extra rolls of loo paper. Blades are kept in a small tupperware box in the drawer.

I've only been wetshaving in the classical sense since June 2020. Before that, it was Schick Hydro 5s and Nivea or Palmolive foam in a can that I bought by the box full when it's half off at Colesworth. The hardware is mostly cheaper stuff, except for the Muhle Rocca and the Oumo badgers. I'm thinking less frequent purchases and more higher end goods in the future eg. a DG B series knot etc.

With the soaps, I originally wanted to get 7 so that I would have a different soap for each day of the week. Then 14 for a fortnight, then I blew past 30 and it's so easy to add more or get fooled by FOMO that I really should just put a moratorium on soaps for the time being. I don't like aftershaves/splashes. Alcohol dries my face out and I'm not really a fan of menthol either. So I don't have a secret stash of post shave gear I didn't photograph, I just don't own any. I stock up on Nivea Sensitive balm when it's on special and a bottle lasts me about 3 months-ish of daily shaves.
