@ jegreen . Yes those are loose heads . Got an R41 and R89 head as I have some short heavy handles from Maggards. The Omega Brush is solid as anything . The turned vs molded handle really provides some heft and the bristles seem to be treated to be much softer than other omegas I have .
The only concern is that it is shedding hairs with every test lather .

@Clouds . Yes , thats the package . I went back for it yesterday as they called to say it has been found .

Black Friday
These were not Black Friday purchases but they arrived on Black Friday.
I won the razor and it was with an FPO and took just over two weeks to get
to Postbox-Courier for combined shipping.

Wild West Brush Works
Mantle with Timberwolf knot

Sawdust creation Studio 
Oak/Epoxy hybrid with Tuxedo knot

My birth Razor
Gillette Slim (H3), given its facelift by North Shore Razors

Been a long time since I bought anything, so thought I'd take advantage of Black Friday. From choice overload I ended up with no soaps and snagged a couple of used razors on the Bay...

Merkur Progress short handle
Unused Brushguy synthetic brush
PAL Injectomatic
Gillette Milady Decolletee pearl set
Schick Adjustable injector

Never used an injector before so looking forward to getting some blades and giving these 2 a run

Very nice hauls @jegreen and @Thug

I am looking at Grizzly Bay's drop later tonight.
No real intention on buying anything - just tyre kicking.

I was very fortunate that I picked it up last Saturday morning around 10 and it was the last one remaining from John's drop.

Great bushes coming Thug!

@Dini - yes new moulds which is hopefully a good thing. Would have loved to get a vintage one, but I'm very impressed and the razor has great character.
