    Good morning all!

    It's so quite in the house, I brought out a razors that is very neglected, Shame, Shame, on me.
    I'm not very proficient at this types of tool, but if I ever get the chance to get a rule with one, it'll be nice. My Focus R21 and Half of a new Feather blade, the first pass on the face was uneventful. I'm not up to going East/West yet. I took out another shamefully neglected razor to finish the job. 2cd pass on the face with the Autostrop loaded with a new Pesonna GEM blade mod to fit. I nipped off the small points that the spline was crimped to. The head shave was as uneventful as the face, quiet and smooth. I am getting the impression that the closer to the flat part of the blade your skin comes to it, the better the shave. That's why all these SE razors I have, that have no cap per say, shave so well.
    Hmmmmmm.....
    20200216_090615.jpg Anyway ....
    Stirling is as good as ever, Bay Rum, nice. I washed out my Omega brush really well, and used some conditioner in it, that's better.
    It's difficult for me to use/learn the open blade while having kids running around my feet and the like. No problems with the DE's and SE's, they seem to be second nature now a days.
    So if I get another quiet time, I'll grab the R21, then give it some more shaving love.
    All in all though, I think I'll take the day off.
    Might get a chance to walk the woods today, mmmm-maybe. Hey, even got time for anothe mug of coffee, very nice.
    All
    Enjoy!

    An absolutely wonderful shave Jeff.
    Once you get the MMOC properly handled, it will be hard pressed to find another razor that does the job as good.
    Nice!

    Thanks Terry. When the brush began to resemble the ice-cream cone, I knew I'd be in for a solid shave.
