    Thanks, James. Just tried it in a few troublesome areas. Didn't really make a huge amount of difference.

    jluc smelling pretty

    Thanks, Gary.
    I'm trying to empty all my razors but it won't happen this month. I might just delay the start of my March focus so I can finish getting through them all.
    Oh so close, Tim. Better luck tomorrow.

    Ahhh Tim!
    When I use two blades for a shave, I use them one at a time ;).
    Nice shave with that little tool.
    My 1912 razors do a great job if I ride the cap lots. Anothe razor that can be a pleasure to use. I see you have a FT in line, interesting to see how that proves out for you.
    Nice shave there.

    Nice shave, Tim! As far as the Tsuka (TSD BoS 2019), there might be another possibility as to your sensitivity to this scent. I do not remember if you used both SS and AS, then my advice would may not work if you did. In your shave, you used Texas on Fire which is a strong scent that can cause irritation. In conjunction with the Tsuka, you may have doubled down on your sensitivity. My suggestion us to use an unscented shave soap like Williams or Mitchell's Wool Fat and then use the Tsuka AS. If you still get the burning, then I would say that you really are sensitive to it.

    Thanks, Gary! They replaced the top cap and adjusted the baseplate to fit! Matt did it himself, so I’m sure it’s about as good as it can be!

    Thanks, Terry! I agree! It was a great shave, even without my Preshave soap!
