Let's see the goodies for the week!
An unexpected (and free!) acquisition today at work. Long story, shortened:
I mentioned to someone that I really admired the craftsmanship of the old Gillette razors, and we were reflecting on old vs. new craftsmanship in general.
Today I came into work and he handed me this '59 Tech. I asked him to at least let me give him something in return, but he just told me "It's hard to find someone who appreciates craftsmanship like this. It's yours."
Awesome! That's a blue tip Rocket not just any blue tip!I am completely satisfied with my starter Merkur HD, but I wanted to try out some different razors and hunting for razors is really a relaxing day. Found these all today for dirt cheap. The two on the left need cleaning, the gold tech is MINT (Woot!) and the blue tip looks barely used. Tabac came last friday, but included it here for flavor.
Oh baby! Daddy likes'em big.Check this bad boy out! I decided I "needed" a new brush and in typical fashion I went mad when I ordered this one from PC Woodcraft and Pens.
It's silvertip, hand turned redwood burl handle (beautiful), 28mm knot. Seriously, the thing is as big as my head! And it looks fantastic! A totally quality piece of overkill for my bathroom. I put a razor next to it for size comparison.
