    Rapira Platinum Lux is up this week for blade audition for my 1911 OLD. Then next week it'll be the Voskhod.
    I've decided to go with an OLD/NEW rotation. I'll throw in my other vintage gear as the spirit moves me.

    Used my new to me Bostonian. Not bad....a little rough but no blood and silky smooth results with the Local Gent eucalyptus mint lotion.[​IMG]

    J.A. Henckels Rapide Hollow Ground SE
    Italian Barber Amici soap and AS
    Surrey w/ TGN 3 band 24mm synthetic

    Last night I shaved with my Henckels Rapide blade that Adam @Drygulch honed for me. This was by far the most comfortable shave I've had with a hollow ground SE blade. I still experienced some tugging in the mustache and goatee areas on the first pass, but I think I can attribute the roughness in those areas to trying to shave with too shallow of an angle. After 3 passes I was left with a SAS shave but wanted a little more so I did a full fourth pass with my RazoRock Baby Smooth. I also used my newly re-knotted Surrey brush that Jim @jimjo1031 did such a wonderful job on. Not only did he replace the knot but he also polished up the plastic, and I think it looks amazing! The fibers of this knot feel a lot like the fibers being used in the Simpson's synthetic, although the knot isn't nearly as dense as the Simpson's. After a 15 seconds load I was able to make a bowl full of lather and had plenty to spare. Have a great evening everyone!
