It is a leap year - so there will obviously be more February acquisitions than normal :)

Who started leap years?


Julius Caesar was behind the origin of leap year in 45 BC. The early Romans had a 355-day calendar and to keep festivals occurring around the same season each year a 22 or 23 day month was created every second year. Julius Caesar decided to simplify things and added days to different months of the year to create the 365-day calendar; the actual calculations were made by Caesar's astronomer, Sosigenes. Every fourth year following the 28th day of Februarius (February 29th) one day was to be added, making every fourth year a leap year. {Source: https://www.thoughtco.com/history-of-leap-year-1989846)

Anyway - post your shaving acquisitions for the month here!

Been a while!

I got a razor though -



Very nice looker -

I believe you’ve got the version 2 or maybe 3 of the Muhle Rocca, otherwise, I have no idea??

There’s been changes to the top cap designs on the version 2 and possible changes to the bottom base plate on version 3??

There’s been a lot of discussion on Badger & Blade forum
