From MenEssentials: Baxters shampoo, conditioner, and Italian Lime/Pomegranite body wash
From Em's: "Balancing" Jojoba moisture cream (a must have at bedtime), "Balancing" after shave splash, Cucumber facial lotion.
For those who love sandalwood, you must try Em's balancing-scented items. Great stuff.
Note to Buzzskin: the 15% offer is nice, but your threshold for free shipping is $75 versus MenEssentials $40. What I saved on shipping at ME was the same/better than your discount, so I had little incentive to try you out. Oh, well - live and learn.
This is a beautifully restored Fredrick Reynolds Sheffield Steel 7/8 Wedge. The scales are ebony with an alabaster insert custom made by Robert Williams. I'm afraid my pictures don't do the razor justice.
It is perfectly balanced and the blade is dead on center when nestled in the scales. Many hours were spent transforming the blade to a mirror finish.
Shaving report to follow.
Thanks to Robert Williams at Straight Edge Razors, aka Dos Centavos for creating this beautiful razor. This heirloom razor will be in my daily rotation. Razors no matter how beautiful, are meant to be used.

Took advantage of the 20% off C&E sale and picked up some Sienna to go along with my Nomad collection. I also couldn't resist the Edwin Jagger C&E super badger brush. The Body Shop is only a few doors down so I thought I'd check out the shaving cream and the after shave gel.
As best I can measure, appears to be a 25mm, maybe 26mm knot. It's only slightly larger than my Vulfix 2235 which has a 24mm knot. Very nice feel to the brush. I look forward to trying it out tomorrow morning.
