  1. The lovely wife got me a Merkur 34G. After an awesome 2 hours chatting with Charles Roberts at Enchanté in November, she also told me to get the Hydrolast starter kit. And I am delighted with both. 🙂

  2. Geo. f. trumper extract of limes aftershave. Great as you put it on, really refreshing, but – and I say this with regret – lasts about half an hour. You’d have to shower in this stuff for anyone to know you were wearing it an hour after you’d finished. It’s a great scent, too, which is frustrating.

  3. Geo. F. Trumper’s violet shaving cream 🙂 – first try, and love it ; Dr. Harris & Co. Arlington, after shave ;)- another first try and enjoy it.
    Happy new year!

  4. Santa brought me an Above The Tie 5 piece Atlas set with an R1, R2 & M1 combo, 100 yellow Gillette 7 o’clock blades, 100 Astra blades and a bar of Arko!

      1. I have been using the 7 o’clock yellow Gillettes and they work wonderful with any of the plates. I will let you know how Astras work. Unfortunately, as you have already talked about, my Derbys have gone down in quality and have left a lot to be desired with ATT and my vintage Gillettes! Sad!

  5. I got a new Wet Shaving Products boar brush from my daughter. It’s a great brush! It’s already broken in enough for face lathering after 3 shaves.
    I also got some cash, which I am thinking of using for a nice razor. Maybe an iKon slant, or a Merkur slant and something additional.

  6. How To Grow A Mustache Synergy Shave Soap – Meta Nectar Scent
    RazoRock XXX Tallow Shave Soap
    RazoRock Glycerine Preshave Soap with Lime Oil
    RazoRock Lime Oil Shampoo

      1. I don’t have the best nose for scents, but I detect Floral and Honey notes; my wife thinks there’s a woodsy-ness also.
        HTGAM: “A magical blend of Orange Blossom, Honey & Vanilla combined with our newly formulated Synergy Shaving Soap make for a truly otherworldly experience.”

  7. Stirling Clubman soap in a tin
    Razorock Captain’s Choice Bay Rum soap
    Palmolive menthol shave cream
    100 pack of Red IPs
    Omega 20107 boar brush
    Dreadnought Pre-shave oil

      1. I have. The soap lathers up nicely with my new Omega boar brush. The soap doesn’t have a super strong scent, but the slickness of the lather is outstanding.

  8. For Christmas Santa brought me the Above The Tie Atlas Five-Piece Set. It’s the best shave I have ever had.
