Three shaving-related announcements of importance only to blog readers

First, to those who bought one of the surprise/mystery boxes of shaving soaps: I am happy to answer any questions about the soaps, if I can. I will say now that the Geo. F. Trumper soaps are all pre-reformulation—not to put too fine a point on it, these are the good soaps before the outsourcing sent soap quality south. (I do have one box left.)

Second, I am happy to be able to initiate the new year with a new (stainless, black) razor: Blackland has delivered the Blackbird. Featured tomorrow, along with the shaving soap they included.

Third, I know some (many?) read only posts in the “shaving” category, and thus have missed my enthusiastic recommendation (and discussion) of Sapiens: A Brief History of Humankind,  You can use “Look Inside” at the link to read the opening to see whether it’s for you. Note the 5-star rating with a respectable number of raters. I find the book enthralling. It’s a cross-cultural (and thus culture-neutral) look at the flow of human existence, and offers a very interesting perspective.
