I'm fairly new to DE shaving and, like a lot of other newbies, it seems, I'm very much enjoying my acquisition phase. Been shaving with my grandpas Gilette Aristocrat, but plan to upgrade to a DE-89 soon. Also moving up from my VdH pure badger to a Semogue 1305 and a whipped dog silver tip. Anywho, as I've been reading up about creams, soaps and everything in between and have been on the hunt for something stainless steel that could function as a somewhat standardized snurdle. And I found it! To be more precise, I found an espresso "paddle," but hey... semantics. http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00462QPJ8?ie=UTF8&force-full-site=1&ref_=aw_bottom_links Let me know what you think!
