    My favorite type of open comb. I get great shaves from mine, Bostonian made in Canada.

    Second shave this morning with my 1911 OLD, first on weekday stubble. The OLD/GSB duo, did not disappoint. Near BBS, with 2.5 passes of shaving excellence!!

    My 1911 OLD "continues along the path" serving up another great shave(BBS) with the GSB. I LOVE THIS RAZOR!!

    Last night I took The Soap Destroyer to the last remaining bit of my La Toja and it did its job! I also used this lovely Gillette Old Type ABC Pocket Edition that was so kindly sent to me from my good friend Alan @Morman Bridge . It was an absolutely fantastic shave, again another Old that I don't really find aggressive. It was very efficient though and the baby was waiting after my normal 3 passes. Have a great day my friends!

    So, I'm four days in with my blade auditions for my 1911 OLD. Here are some thoughts; with the cap torqued all the way down, I'm getting some fantastic shaves with the GSB. When "riding the cap", if I start to see 'rows' of lather, the angle is out of whack. Overall, I'm really impressed with this razor. Hope I'm doing as well at 106!

    One more day left in the shave/work week. The OLD is a champ!
    I really can't wait to run more blades through this baby. I'm envisioning a OLD/NEW rotation with fill-ins by my other vintage razors.

    Want to find out whether the Derby from Turkey is different - this shave is OK.

    The first week of blade auditions has come to a close this morning. It was a real kick to shave with a tool that is 106 years old. As a platform to deliver a blade edge to one's face this razor is hard to beat IMHO. I am considering a two razor rotation consisting of the OLD and my '32-'40 NEW SC. Next blade up is the Shark Super Chrome.
