    One of my past home coffee roasting set-ups.

    Pick one country for all your soaps, AS etc and one for you Razor and blades.

    I was thinking about being restricted to only buying shaving gear from one country (why? its the sort of torture I tend to inflict on my mind at times) Then I thought blades and razors should be separate. So if you had to, what country would get your vote for all your software: Soap/Cream...

    What should I keep from this stash?

    A mate who knows of my interest in shaving gave me this bag of stuff to look through and said if you want something keep it. The Valet in the bakerlite is in sweet condition and the little green bakerlite is cool to. Your thoughts?

    First M&F brush arrived today.

    I did a trade with one of the Gents here and this is what I received in the mail from the States today :biggrin1: I haven't used it yet but it seems to be a combination of things I really like in terms of look and shape and height.

    Maintenance of a Straight for a noob.

    Yes I'm in the Sabbatical so this is just a rhetorical question :blushing: I had a couple of goes with a straight I bought a while back then ended up putting it in a PIF but I want to have another go. My issue is maintenance. If I buy (whoops, I mean trade) a straight and a strop, how long will...
