    With the sterling work in the handle of that brush,it looks like an antique.Are those the original brush hairs & if so they still work after 114 years?

    Thanks Mr. Magnus I will check into the brushes.

    CoqaVin I got the Merkur long handle chrome finish,I have seen it for under 40.00.I like it alot I found if I take the blade out & clean it after shaving a blade will last quite a while.Cuz it is DE,I just flip the head around after half shave & use the other side.I got good info. here get a sample blade set to see what blade you like the best.If you buy in bulk the blades are cheap.

    Thinking about getting a butterfly head, an old one in good shape is a good bet.Mr. Magus turned me on to Dr. Harris Sandlewood aftershave.It's good stuff & a small bottle will last.I use tiny amount everyday & hardly put a dent in the bottle after months of use.
