    Had a great shave last night with this combo of unadulterated manliness... leather...whiskey...and cold hard black oxide steel...yes I'm still talking about the shave...

    -Blackbird of course...
    -WW Brush
    -Astra SP
    -Soap Commander drive
    -Ellingtons wide eye whiskey cider aftershave

    Not quite BBS but still a great shave. Mrs. Obturador really enjoyed it.

    ...Yes I'm still talking about the shave...for the most part.

    I might have mentioned those earlier in the thread. They are really nice. You just do not find that kind of quality anymore, not even from the modern Dovo company.

    Still doesn't mean they don't make your junk curdle a bit, and give you pictures of castrating lambs in your head. Still, congrats on your newest purchase.

    My first blade broke when I took the head off the razor after about a 5 shaves to give it a clean. It was only snapped in half on one end. I didn't think any more about it. I've used several blades since then and none have broken.

    The blade as a Persona which came with the razor. I've since used a couple of Persona blades, a couple of Astra SP blades and a Dorco ST300 with no issues.

    Never had that issue and i've used several Astra SP blades in mine along with Feather Hi-stainless, PolSilver SI and Voskhod .. i don't see how you'd break a blade in it unless maybe the blade wasn't seated correctly and tightened down

    It broke all of the way through on the one side, similar to what you try to accomplish when breaking down a DE blade for a shavette. Just that one time, np other issues. Have been using Astra SP and Feathers with no issues.

    I've been using my BB for over 50 days now and never had a blade break yet.

    @twhite was kind enough to send me a few those stands that Kerry had in his photo. I love them! So simple, light, and attractive. They also stack which is a big bonus. Many thanks, Tom.

    JR Reyes I scream for....chicken wings??

    I must admit that I really like the look of the polished razor with the muted corners.
    I've pretty much converted to strictly straights, but this stireed up some RAD
