halvor

a most elusive fish
In the words of countless before me, in this thread and elsewhere: thought I was over it, but it pulled me back in. (To my credit, I joined a forum GB before Christmas, and it arrived now. No other brush or razor has entered my doorstep in the meantime.)

Looking forward to following this knot’s development - holds great promise. (Druida Manchurian.)

A couple of deliveries.
Simpson CH2 2-Band SiLVERTiP in Cobalt.

A beautiful Heljestrand Mk.32 straight from Jamie @JamieM.
I had no intention of returning to straights after my neck issues of 7 years ago caused an abrupt end to use. The Helje was the one razor back then I always wanted and eluded me. Then, two night ago, Jamie had this up for sale. Could I resist? NO, and I have no idea how my neck will cope now. Fingers crossed.

One brush I have always regretted selling was the M7 I used to own, as it has a handle I really like, and I’ve been after a synthetic knotted version for some time.

As Simpson’s have a sale on them at the moment I simply couldn’t resist. Tortoiseshell is one of the colours I particularly like in the Simpsons range, so this was very much a no-brainer for me. The free tub of cream was a nice addition as well.

I also plumped for a King C Gillette razor in order to see what the current hype is about. It looks to be very nicely made and, at £13 it’s an absolute steal.

Finally, a Karve C OC baseplate and head. I got this through his amazing generosity of a friend who gave me a voucher that covered the majority of the cost. I can’t wait to give it a try and see how it compares to the B OC plate I already have. 🙂
