    All that face stuff?

    Before the pandemic I used to visit Aberdeen often as I work for a company in the oil and gas industry. I stayed at the Inn On The Park by Duthie Park - I preferred a pub to a hotel. I would certainly pay more attention to skin care if I lived in Aberdeen and more so if I went offshore👍

    Help identifying vintage razor, Gillette Old Type copy / imitation

    No idea on the maker but I suggest it is missing a part of the handle which is normally in two pieces. One handle piece fits inside the other when the razor is in the case, and when in use they screw together with the smaller diameter section attaching to the cap.

    New addition found at antique barn.

    I would give it a soak, and a clean up with a soft toothbrush and some toothpaste and then use it as is. Right now it has interest and character; replated it will be just another shiny razor and the best thing it has, something intangible, will be gone, for me anyway. Whatever you do, enjoy it...

    New addition found at antique barn.

    It looks more like a Fatboy than a Slim to me.

    Most Luxurious Shaving Cream?

    This Yardley cream which I guess is 30+ years old had solidified in the tube so I cut the tube open and scraped the contents into an Old Spice mug; the cream now resembles a semi hard soap in texture. The scent and performance are superb; this is my favourite luxurious cream.

    Gillette Gold Aristocrat Slim Adjustable (G3)

    You cannot invite offers, you must state a price. B&B rules.

    Gillette used to advise diagonal strokes. I have one slant, a Hoffritz, which I use occasionally but it is not a favourite.

    Lather in the container?

    I think lathering in the container would waste a lot of product and make it difficult to control the water ratio. I would not want to introduce too much water into a soap or cream if I had a large rotation and may not use it again for a few weeks. I do not like thick, yogurt style lather, and...

    All that face stuff?

    I tried pre shave oils and creams, as well as post shave hyaluronic acid and they did nothing for me at all. I have gone back to shaving in cold water with a tallow soap, rinse with cold water, and finish with alcohol based aftershave or EDC. I may use an inexpensive generic hand cream or a balm...

    Zwilling safety razor

    Thank you, the level of knowledge on B&B never ceases to amaze me, except mine obviously. One of these days I will correctly identify a razor, but not today.😁

    Zwilling safety razor

    I think the razor is simply known as a Henckels Henso and is a very mild shaver. I use mine often and do so with a shim. I believe it to be 1940s but am not certain. That is all I know. As said above, appraisals are not permitted.

    Holy grail razor

    I am not sure exactly what this is, maybe a Rotbart 5021. This is my current favourite.

    Popular TV Programs I’ve Never Watched

    The only one of those I have seen is Fawlty Towers and I have never heard of most of the others. I spend longer trying to decide what to watch on Netflix than I do actually watching anything; I normally end up watching a movie I have seen many times before. Never has there been so much choice...

    Which razor?

    I use a Henso often, it is a very mild shaver so I use a shim with it; mine has no silver plating other than on the cap.
