The making of razor blades

I found a picture of a razor blade manufacturing line today that I want to share:
It's a little unclear if the picture is used to advertise the machines themselves or the blades the Chinese manufacturer makes on them... I don't read Chinese.

Unfurling like a flower of joy


The Artisania Romera Manchurian Badger I was given by Phil of BullGoose is blooming nicely, it is - to dip into poetic turns for a while - unfurling like a flower of joy.

It is already soft like a fluffy cloud, and easily whips up copious amounts of lather - which it is somewhat reluctant to give up.
