Last US SOTD post: Copper Hat silvertip, Antica Barbieria Colla, iKon 102, and the last of my TOBS Sandalwood aftershave

with 9 comments

The Copper Hat silvertip brush I bought while in Victoria, and it seemed a good choice for this final US SOTD post, since Victoria is our destination. It made a fine lather, though it required a little extra loading because the knot holds more than you might think.

The iKon 102 did its usual great job, and I finished off the Sandalwood aftershave.

We’re rapidly getting ready. Packers will show up at 8:00 a.m. Monday morning, and by Friday we’ll be in our new apartment, with possessions soon to follow.

  1. God Speed Michael. Did the election of Trump having anything with your move?

  2. Not really. We had already decided to move there because The Wife has family there (her brother and sister-in-law live on Salt Spring Island, her niece just up the Malahat). But Trump’s election did indeed add some push. The Wife is a UVic alumna.

  3. All the best for your move. From my one trip, I remember Victoria as lovely and peaceful.

  4. Thanks. Victoria is indeed quite nice. I trust the paperweight that holds the Pilot Wave pen arrived?

  6. Thanks. For the trip (and the wait at destination for household goods to arrive) I am taking 3 razors: 102, Baili BR171, and Baby Smooth. That gives good variety, I think.

  7. Thanks, it arrived safely and is in service. It fits many of my pens, so it’s been very handy.

  8. Best of luck with the move, and much happiness in your new home. This morning Trump retweeted a photo in which someone had superimposed a Trump “MAGA” baseball cap on top of a railroad locomotive, i.e., Trump Train. But the narcissist-in-chief didn’t notice that the logo of the railroad was conspicuously visible: CANADIAN NATIONAL. Related to SOTD, recently I ordered the Baili BR171 on your recommendation; awesome, at a rock-bottom price. Thank you.

  9. 🙂 Trump is very sensitive inbound, not at all sensitive outbound—totally oblivious in that direction.

    I’m very pleased that you like the Baili BR171. I agree on both counts: awesome, and rock-bottom price. And to my eye, it is also a very attractive razor.
