    But what better way to warm up that to buy some shaving gear? Post your July purchases here :)

    And I think it's those Canberra temperatures that influenced my brother in law to move to Brisbane. That is cold.:coldfeet:

    Tell me about it. When I stepped, barefoot, on my cold tile floor I swear I let out a scream not unlike Nathan Lane in The Birdcage... Not my finest moment.

    Also, Nice reply in the last thread. I almost spit my tea all over my monitor. :)

    Oh it's a beauty! I'm find I'm using GSBs more than any other blade these days.

  6. Haven't posted many SOTD lately. Partly due to using Instagram cause it's way quicker (spenceshaves, unashamed plug ;)) but also since I'm growing out my facial hair for an incoming addition, the Supply razor should be here Monday or Tuesday, want to test it out straight away. Anyone got any experiences with it? Would love to hear it. And yes I know a V2 is inbound, so I have backed that aswell ;) just cannot wait till September though. Shave sabbatical is in order :cry:

    So I have lost 4 eBay auctions by only a few cents, had one arrive smashed to bits and one lost by Aus post but finally I have a Krona thanks to a helpful P&C member :)

    Gem Contour 2. There is no particularly good reason why someone would seek out this razor except to complete the collection. It is in vgc and comes in this elegant, yellow, flexible "presentation box"!
    Just when I have completed the run from Damaskeene to Contour I can't find my Featherweight! I traded one in the knowledge I had another. Now it's gone, I've looked everywhere. Where is it? Where!

    Totally agreed! Even with the derby this morning it was a real treat! I don't see myself getting rid of it

  15. That and the Schick Injector from 1937 are the only vintage razors I have. Atleast you're helping me with that number ;)
