An old friend of mine has given me several old shaving items. The brush and razor were his dads. The brush has a 18 mm knot with a loft of 37 mm, small but effective still. The razor is an old Shavex - I'll comment about that tomorrow. The Yardleys remained an unopened Christmas gift from the 1960s until I used it earlier this year. I just don't understand why they dropped this line. It is a superb soap that produces a rich creamy stable lather. It still turns up from time to time. One like this sold on Ebay for about £55 a few months ago.
