Received my first Trotter Handcrafts brush…supposedly a blemished handle but I’ll be darned if I can see anything wrong!

The picture doesn’t do justice to the richness of color and the pearlescent shift of the swirling as the light interacts with it…it’s pretty darn cool!

I hope you can see the shine! Paul at Trotter Handcrafts graciously fixed a blemish I made while trying to add more CA coatings. Well, he did it it a darn mite finer than I could! Thanks Paul Stubble Daddy!

And the knot setting is dead on. It is a bad camera angle making it look funky!

Last week saw the mail box receive shave gear on several days. All in this photo arrived within days of each other. A brush from Trotter Handcrafts, a new puck of Sensitive Skin from Michelle Mystic Water (this soap has been in my shave drawer continuously since I started shaving with soap and brush in late 2015, it's that great for me!), and a Type M adjustable Schick with the guard protector lever. In the razor is a new Schick Injector II blade, but those blades arrived in August.

Arriving Saturday last, this Type N arrived. I got it due to the fact that Twin blades work well in it, and I thought it looked very straight-forward, like "I'm here to shave, let's get it done" sort of look.

Good stuff in the mail today!  First, from Paul mrdoug (and Paul Stubble Daddy who made it!) I have a neat red razor stand for my Yates fat handle, Seen here next to a Trotter Handcrafts handle.

Next, a razor that was an impulse buy on the 'Bay because I thought the handle looked "groovy!!" I believe it to be a Type I or J long handle, but will research this out more.

Lastly, no photo, but a 30mm Cashmere knot arrived. Alas, it is a smidge too big for the handle socket. Drats! A 28mm knot seemed to have  a bit of wiggle room, so I continue looking and buying! Thank goodness most synthetic knots are inexpensive!
