    Welcome to Spring, Gentlemen. This week, break out your high end, silvertip brushes. I don't have one, but it is the one thing on my wish list that I'm most likely to break down and buy this year. I look forward to seeing your photos, and would love to hear your opinions on what you like and dislike about them. In the meantime, here is my shave to start the week.
