What is the date people? It takes three days to open a new thread around here?

OK, OK, I've been away, sorry.

Post your cool November shaving purchases here though - with pics where possible!

'All things nice'. Spiced sandlewood and honey shaving soap from Whisper in the woods. Great performing soap. Whipped up into a great lather with the badger and then boar. Cushioning and good residual slickness. Great post feel with lanolin like MWF. I get jersey caramel lollies from the scent. The Mrs did well to get this Aussie artisan soap.

Leaving my contact details with vintage shops finally paid off. This is a complete, great condition gold Aristocrat #19 set and an English HD Rocket in an incorrect but beautiful condition bakelite case. $200 cash all up. Obviously these weren’t steals like some of my earlier buys but I’m really happy with what I paid.

Any suggestions what the bakelite case would have originally held?

I disagree - they WERE steals!

Congrats

BAD cured for a while with these beauties

- Simpson Harvard H1 Best Badger with old stock pink/rose tint handle
- Semogue Owners Club Limited Edition with true two band best badger knot
- Semogue Owners Club Limited Edition boar

Arrived today 23mm Black Muhle STF from @nav1
Enjoy the STF.

That H1 looks awesome! I still feel the BEST grade hair from Simpson is the most unique in the market.
It goes beyond density and gel tips, which is what all other brush makers try to differentiate with their knots.
