My Inventory

Last night I got a wild hair to inventory everything I have related to shaving, and hygiene in general. I know some of you guys out there have so much stuff, no way you're going to do this! But, for those of us with a more moderate amount....what ya got????? And more importantly, what do I need???? :)

Old Spice (from India)
GFT Rose
C&E Sweet Almond Oil
C&E Sandalwood
Proraso Green
KMF Virgin Forest
Musgo Real
...all tubes

Will G Emerald Lime
Will G Emerald Peppermint
Will G Shea Ginger/Lime
Will G Shea Bay Rum
2 pucks of Surrey shave soap melted down and mixed with 1 tsp glycerin
(Excellent for cold, dry weather, leaves a glycerin barrier I have to rinse off even after shaving.)

Edge Eucalyptus Gel

Gillette Heavy Duty adjustable, 1959

Mach 3 aftermarket handle
Nationwide Campus fixed head Injector

111 Derby Extra DE blades
7 Schick Injector blades

day, especially during Winter time.)
Suave Lavender shampoo
Suave Aloe conditioner
whipped Coconut Shea body butter
Gold Bond medicated baby powder

Softsoap (when its empty I'm going to refill with Cornhuskers Lotion, and
only use cheap barsoap for washing hands)

C&E Goatmilk Hand Therapy

Armani Aqua di Gio (I think I might try out one of the Musgo Real
colognes for hot weather.)

GFT West Indian Extract of Limes sample

Sinus Health:
2 cup stainless steel Jala Neti pot

baking soda
plastic hairbrush
boar hairbrush
gel (might try some Clubman pomade next)
wood handled back scratcher (absolute neccesity in life!)
Degree for women antiperspirant
nylon bristle fingernail brush
bottle of vegetable glycerin

What I want to eventually try:
Cornhuskers Lotion
Musgo Real cologne (#2, I believe)
perhaps a better toothpase
more KMF shaving creams
maybe a better shampoo & conditioner
Thayers Witch Hazel
Shavemac handmade Pure badger shaving brush around 24mm
Moss Scuttle (large)
more Old Spice shaving cream
lots more Injector blades
a few more Mach 3 cartridges
some sort of back washing brush
perhaps a straight razor, with strop and all the fixins
HEB shea butter bath soap for the dry Winter season
Feather "Nanka" shaving gel
Feather "Kanwa" aftershave balm







Looks like you are going to need more room!

I'll stick with my suggestions of Taylors Mr. Taylor and Shaving Shop. Great stuff!

How long do yall think I'm stocked for? Actually, I think the aftershaves are going to last me much longer than the creams and soaps I have.
My question is, what brush should I get? I only have one and would like something high-end (in quality more than in price). I don't need anything too big since I have a goatee... the 22mm knot on my Vulfix works pretty well, but I have no comparison.

Also, my Merkur blades don't seem to do so well in my Gillettes. Any blade advice? Gracias!

Onto my inventory...

Vulfix #2233 Super Badger

Merkur HD
Gillette '57 Superspeed
Gillette Adjustable
Nationwide Campus Injector

Schick Injector (2 pkgs)
Merkur DE (1 pkg)

Proraso Green
Musgo Real
GFT Limes
Arko Commando
C&E Sienna

Taylor's Sandalwood
Arko Shave Stick

Pre-/Postshave Skin Care:
Shave Secret Oil
GFT Coral Skin Food
Witch Hazel
Cornhusker's Lotion
Turkish Alum Block
Pinaud Styptic Pencil
Small Electric Kettle
Stoneware bowl (for building lather)

Lolita Lempicka au Masculin
Chanel Egoiste Platinum
Lots and lots of GFT, T&H and Penhaligon's Samples
(and Knize Ten and Endymion decants on the way!)

I suggest Shavemac. You can get a variety of 23mm brushes for very reasonable prices. My 23mm Shavemac is about the same as my slightly smaller Vulfix, because it has more of a lightbulb shape. Also, look at the "custom" section on the Shavemac site, if you want to mix it up a little as far as handles go.

A lot of other people are going to suggest Saville Row. Never tried one, but I hear they are great, so you probably will not go wrong there. A lot less choice in handles, though.

Good luck.
Well, since others are doing the same, maybe I'll post my inventory to...

Gillette #66 Aristocrat
Gillette 40s Super Speed (several)
Merkur Long Handle Classic
Gem Micromatic TTO (tapered and straight, bar and comb)
Gem Jr. (Fat handle)
Gem 1912
Gem "G. Bar"
Gem Micromatic Push Button
Schick Injector E, yellow/orange marbled handle

Taylors Avocado and Eton College
Trumpers Sandlewood
T&H Ultimate Comfort
Various samples from Scotto

QED Vetiver, Lemon & Cedar, Sandlewood, and Pine &Cedar
C&E Sweet Almond Oil and Sienna

My collection is pretty weak in every area (except maybe Gem razors), but this is really embarassing. All I have are a few samples from Scotto: Woods of Windsor (nice, but makes me feel a little old), Musgo #2 Oak Moss (love it), L'Occitane Vetivyer (mmmm mmm good, and manly), Mr Taylor (see WoW), C&E sandlewood (nice, but I wish it smelled more like sandlewood)

I am not sure if the new server could handle it if Joel, Ron and Scotto posted theirs...
I need another dimension of time and space to wrap my brain around how much stuff I have. Better not to even think about it less a migraine ensue. Actually, I treat it similarly to "not naming the Devil"; if I don't think about it maybe it won't draw any more of SWMBO's unwanted attention.
