    Aloha Gents.

    Nothing too exciting, but I have my very first "SYNTHETIC" brush coming this week. First one ever. Plenty of Badgers and Boar and a Horsehair, but never anything synthetic, so finally trying a "Vegan" brush for kicks.

    Also ordered a bottle of Clubman Citrus Musk. I've been using Lime Sec for a very long time, and it's high time for a switch;

    I quite like the Omega Synths. Use them for travel. They need breaking in.

    How many aftershaves/perfume can you handle?

    Samsung just like the fridge.
    Now I got to run a gas line and when it shows up next week I'll get it put in.
    5 burner convection. And it comes with the griddle on top. Now after this is installed I'll check into buying some cast iron skillets.
    Going to have to do some cutting on the cabinet to get it in but nothing too much.

    I would really like a gas top and convection oven. It is not likely to happen in my kitchen though.

    I've got an Omega S-Pro synthetic, I believe a slightly different model to yours. It is a good brush. Yours may act differently than mine, but don't be surprised if you are not able to build a lather in a bowl/scuttle. My S-Pro is better suited for face lathering.

    No harm in trying to bowl lather. I tried it for the first half a dozen shaves with mine, and adding some drops of glycerin to it didn't help much.

    Aloha! Ha! Yes, it seems I have more than I can use, but eventually, they'll "mostly" get used. I seem to rotate through them. My top 12 or so go on top of the shaving storage cabinet. Like so;

    The others go under the sink for storage and are rotated in about once a month or so. Most of the Clubman spare fragrances are there. However, on the sink riser shelf on the sink I have pump bottles for Pinaud Classic, 40 percent with Aloe Wintergreen Alcohol and my custom Witch Hazel brew.

    I appreciate the advice. It will be here tomorrow, so I'll give it a whirl. If it happens to only be a "Face-Lather" brush, that's fine. Sometimes I don't feel like bowl or scuttle lathering, so it will all work out.

    I've been traveling with a Boar brush for a very long time. I bought a few on sale about 20 years ago just for traveling, but I can see how a Synth would be a good travel brush. I may consider this.

    Thanks!
