    There is vintage and then there is hard core vintage :happy088:

    Great film!

    Great minds think alike, I used my big Riga razor today.

    Tuesday Shave: a 7/8 Riga Razor and vintage Old Spice are the starts of the show. The vintage OS is a top performer for sure, it is a shame they don' t bring it back in the original formula and scent. This big Riga is sporting a very sharp edge and the result today was epic.

    Good morning!

    Thirty one years ago today I wore my first tuxedo. That woman that stood by my side that day is still standing by my side today.

    Have a great day!

    Wonderful setup and photo, Keith! I like the looks of shoulder less razors.

    Thanks, Bruce! My bride and I are growing old together.

    Yes, my first use of the BBS. Smooth razor with an intuitive angle. I did my usual three passes and got my usual results.

    Congrats on another new razor! :) I haven't experienced a RR razor myself, however it seems they put out very good products at reasonable prices - which is what they strive to do.
    Again - Happy Anniversary! Guessing your work schedule interferes with celebrating somewhat...

    Thank you!

    RR does offer a lot of razor for the money. I have several and the only one I really haven't come to terms with is the Hawk V3 OC. I probably need to do a focus with it.

    Cool Riga Razor and setup. So many incredible products turn into unobtanium, with their successors (if they survive the transition at all) end up less than desirable. Great shave result!

    Sincere Congratulations on 31 years Jim! An excellent duration for you and your bride. Here's to many more!:eatdrink047:

    Oh, yeah, great shave and result with the RR BBS. Making a dent yet in the Astra Planeta?

    I'm trying to make a dent in the Astra Planeta but it doesn't look like I've used much. I'll keep attacking it every Tuesday.
