Thanks, guys

Yeah, it does and by the way, thanks for the soap sample and blade sampler pack!

The feather works well with the Muhle...they are just getting prohibitively expensive, especially considering
the price of Polsilvers that is very importable.

Cheers.

Very nice :thumbup:

I see you have the lid for the old spice mug which is cool, not many still have the lids

Don't know if you have posted them before, but what are the razors you have? ps, congrats on your 'old' new one ;)

Hi, Jacquers

The Old Spice was my granddad's and yes, you are right, the lids seem to be very scarce. This soap is really great as well, as was any other Old Spice
product, before Proctor & Gamble's reign!

Razors, left to right: Merkur 38C, Muhle R89, Merkur 1904, Fatip Grande in Nickel and a Merkur 37C HD Slant. Thanks for the interest, but I am sure
that you have quite a few more... I do have four SE's, of which I have posted pics on other threads.

Ja, it was somewhat painful to bid against my fellow wet shavers - let's see how it looks in the flesh...will post pics soonest, as well as a write up on the
shave. Have you got any experience with the Gillette open comb razors? Mild, or wild?

Regards,

Vintage

Nice simple design Thug, i'm also a fan of re-using things for practical solutions.

Vintage1973, that is a decent cabinet you built, I remember building all sorts of wooden things with my Dad from a TV cabinet to a snake cage with sliding glass doors. But now living in a complex (no garage) I don't have space for a multi day project, unless i use the dining room table :think: but don't think the SO would like that.

I'll take a picture tonight (if i remember) but i had put up a floating shelf in my bathroom that holds all my shaving stuff. My razors and brushes just hanging around though in shaving cups/bowls

Nice collection and variety you have there Vintage :)

Chrisvo is actually more qualified to give an answer, but I'll try. It can be quite subjective.

The Gillette open combs I have are the British Popular #47, which is the same as the #15 Aristocrat, just a slimmer handle. One side is mild and the other is a bit aggressive due to a slight door alignment issue. I think they are usually not that wild. I have some open comb Techs which are mild, but efficient and shave like the normal Techs. The Old Type's design is different to those though. The Merkur 1904 is a copy of it, but from what I've read much milder. Haven't used an Old Type before and the reviews are a bit conflicting. Some say it can be a bit aggressive, others really like it. Probably depends on what type of razor you like. The blades back then were a tiny bit thicker than modern blades, so some people shim them to make up for that. Will look out for your review.

Nice setup you have Chris. :clap: Is it only display pieces in the cabinet or do you occasionally shave with them as well?

I've used most of the items in the display case except the gold Slim Twist, Slim Adjustable Aristocrat and the 1938 Aristocrat. All work but are in such great condition that I just leave them be. I already have user grades for the Slim Twist, Slim Adjustable and another great looking 1938 Aristocrat so I ain't really missing out at all when it comes to shaves.

As promised, here's what i did. it keeps everything out of the way and in a easy reachable place (please ignore the goo :oops: , my GF uses it from time to time but not me :twisted: )

Then i made this little hook to dry my brushes on after shaves

At least you hid the goo behind the lavender :lol:
I saw a video once of a barber in the US that uses a auto soap dispenser thingy machine. This dispenses a foam like soap that they use for there shaves so I suppose the foam is not all bad. I had a shave before from a barber the used a foam out the tin on me but at least he started with Prep as a base.

Thanks ShaveHaven.
My first ever lather i made with a brush was that exact gel, bowl lathered with some water. Wasn't that bad actually although the shave itself was a bit of a mess (read cuts galore) due to no idea what i was doing with the DE and a cheap lion blade. but with all the soaps en creams and scents etc i have never had the urge to try it again :lol:
