    Good morning fellas!
    Straight razor shave #92
    Böker King Cutter
    Omega 49 Boar Brush
    Stirling Satsuma SS and AS
    I did something a little different today in my facelathering technique. I decided not to bloom the soap and just swirl my brush so that it was a paste. Pasted my face and then slowly added water to work the lather. It turned out fine, but I think I will continue to bloom the soap because I like a wetter lather. Anyway, I did 3 passes and touchups because the Kingcutter was not as sharp as I would have liked it. I did get an IBSS and that's fine with me. I Croxed the KingCutter after my shave and went over some areas and yes, it was a lot sharper. So, I will use it on my next shave to see and feel the difference in the Crox refresh. Finished with matching aftershave. Have a great day, guys! 20190801_083715.jpg 20190801_083715.jpg

    Fabulous Joe. I like to meet in the middle with my lather...not runny but yet not too pastey. Fine line to walk with some soaps though.

    Thanks Patrick! Since I am predominantly a straight razor shaver, I need my lather on the wet side because the blade glides along the face much easier.

    Fantastic shave, Terry! It's looks like your blade inventory just doubled!
    Beautiful new razor Jim!

    Awesome shot Clint!
    Great shave Jim!
    Fantastic shave Joe! I bet the razor will cut like a dream next shave. I'm with you on the sloppy wet lather!

    Thanks, Andrew! Even though the KingCutter was not at its sharpest, I still got a very good, close, comfortable shave.
