    70g is actually not a lot of soap ...

    ... but certainly enough for the PCTB5 (y)

    How it smell? I heard really good things, but a lot of criticism on the posting costs (reasonable from spaniards that are members of TSN, and could pick it up by hand directly from manuel and have to pick it up after a double crossing of the atlantic pond)

    Vetiver from the puck with some aromatic woods and a little citrus at top, I rather like it. Postage was very expensive but it always is from Bullgoose - they are known for being expensive right across the board.

    Today's shaving related haul from a Vintage & Collectables fair. Total cost $25 inciuding the fat handled Tech. The handle is in better nick than my original one but the top cap has more plate loss and pitting. Can make a great composite one though for me with some elbow grease and I have another PIF razor for friends.

    Excalibur and Tribute Avon aftershaves at last are in the den. Also picked up some great pottery but that's off topic now :)

    My favourite 2018 cool weather scent has arrived in the den. Just a brilliant leather and not too expensive...
    [​IMG]

    Oh, and yesterday's razor polished up pretty well. Will have another go later but it looks way better...

    Sadly, it doesn't sport the same fat handle as my heavier English Fat Tech. So that defeats some of the reason for buying the $10 bargain. The earlier English is on the right below... And yes, someone has repaired that handle like a boss in the past...
