Went for a drive to pick up a cast iron cornbread pan, and stopped at a few antique shops while out. Found a couple stones and an old brush. Third butterscotch in my simpsons harem!
 

Attachments

Some ebonite. These are very nicely polished. I've had some ebonite brushes that weren't. First, an M&F 2xl in Fiesta ebonite. Second, a Leo Frilot brush made for the SFWS group's EOTYB 3 in 2018.

I received a box last night from WCS. I really wanted to try the Yaqi Knight Helmet razor head and bought a few other things to fill the cart. My son liked the scent of Take-Out Night when we were at the Maggard's meet last year, but he chose a few other things instead, so I picked up a set for him as a little surprise for his birthday coming up. I just needed a new alum block and decided to to try Black Ship High Seas aftershave. I think it will go nice with my Irma Shave PAA soap.

Yesterday a package came in from the Holy Black with a Valentines gift for my wife. I bought her their Scarab EDP as something a little different.

Today the mailman brought a new razor to me. I never tried an Enders. I just have to figure out the blade thing. I was surprised on the size. They look bigger and chunkier in photos, but they seem smaller in person and rather light. I always dig trying different types of razors.

Thursday night I came home to a package containing the razor I have been wanting for a long time - Schick's New and Improved Type F Injector. I have been searching for a good useable example for some time and every time I found one it got away for one reason or another. This one is in fairly good shape. I cleaned it and then polished it some more this morning before my inaugural shave with it. It really shines now. It was a great performer and very smooth. It was a tad less aggressive and a bit smoother than my E2 and therefore I preferred slightly more. Maybe it was just my first impression combined with the "Yes I am shaving with my Holy Grail razor" factor, but it was definitely a delight to use. My only negative criticism is the fact that it is kind of slippery. The handle grip is not great. The razor was polished smooth and I used some alum to improve the situation. Not a big problem to resolve. I hope my future shaves are just as good with it. It is a beauty and I really enjoy it. I'm sure it will earn its spot among my favorites. It already has a head start with one of the coolest vintage deco designs!
