    I Changed the Edge on this Single Edge BOKER Full Hollow Ground Swedish Steel Blade from a 17 K Escher Thuri Finish to a Surgical Black Arkansas 20 K Finish..I Took it Back to the Naniwa 8 K, 12 k, 16 k Film, Surgical Black 20 K Arkie for a Change of Pace...;)

    I Honed @Karl G Blade for His C.V Heljestrand SE...The Nordic Queen as He Calls it..I Did it on My Arkie & I Liked the Edge So Much I Done One of My Own for My Own C.V Heljestrand SE..Never Came Across Another Usable BOKER SE Hollow Ground Blade..She has a Wicked & Smooth Edge...Cuts the Whiskers Like a Silent Ninja..:D

    RazoRock Plissoft 22mm
    P & B Spitfire
    Alu.Hawk / Windrose handle
    Schick Proline [ 1 ]
    P & B Spitfire Splash

    A bit of a treat this morning, changed the blade in the Hawk for a fresh one ; those Prolines do last well,also opened up a Fresh Bowl of Spitfire.After a Shave like this I could probably settle for the Hawk as a Daily Shaver, smooth/ comfortable and a nice close all round finish. But of course I won't, in fact am away for a couple of nights staying with Sister- in -Law and officiating at an Indoor Track Meeting. Have got an Injecto- Matic packed for use in a bathroom which is not my favourite.

    Cold Water Rinse
    Musgo Real Shaving Soap
    The Brush B-3 by Tom
    Starling SE
    Gem Blue Star SE
    CWR
    Stetson AS

    My prep was just a cold water rinse. The Musgo Real Shaving Soap face lathered well with The Brush B-3 by Tom brush. I did two passes with the Starling SE razor with a Gem Blue Star SE blade and ended up with a close, comfortable shave. After a cold water rinse, I finished off with Stetson AS. I am clean, smooth, and refreshed...

    Knot: APShaveCo Tuxedo
    Soap: WSP Formula T Olympus
    Post Care: Stirling Unscented Witch Hazel
    Alum
    Aftershave: WSP Olympus

    Fantastic shave this morning. I took my new WSP Olympus set out for its maiden shave and all I can say is WOW! This stuff is amazing. First, the scent is incredible; it starts with a fresh pineapple and apple scent that gives way to a smoky vanilla and sandalwood. Love it. It's very easy to lather and a couple swirls easily produced a ton of creamy lather. It's protective with excellent cushion and maybe the slickest soap I've ever tried, residual slickness was more than enough to buffer. This may be the best base I've ever tried. The aftershave didn't disappoint either. Same great scent and my face feels nourished. I got zero feedback from the alum. I'm glad I bought these. The Pro Guard blade was very nice, it's right up there with the Pro so far as my favorite. I'm going to keep trying a few more blades but these 2 are clearly in the lead. Have a great day folks!

    Well I had my first shave with the Streamline razor and it was a good shave, very close. Started with a brand new Gem Personna SS PTFE (1) and it delivered a BBs and it's indicating a very efficient razor also. The audio on the whiskers getting chopped is very nice to hear(scraping toast) and it indicates the little rascals are still there on the second pass ATG. I did a 2 pass with a cleanup pass and it delivered what I was expecting for a shave. I had a small weeper from a pimple it sheared off like any razor would do unless a extremely mild aggression razor.

    The Razor was manufactured in England and went through 2 generations and some are very rare to find like the GEM Jewel that I do not own but they do exist and this is about as close to acquiring one for now.
    [​IMG] A Gem Jewel, rare and can be a little expensive if you come a cross one.
    Have some great shaves!

    As far as I know the only difference is the case they come in.
    The Jewel having a velvet lined metal case:

    I do not have all the models like this Fellow does, but his Gem Jewel model back clasp is a little different with a missing notch!

    Anyone who can hone WS Empire blades to the level he does has both my admiration and respect.
    p.s. He's a great bloke to deal with.

    Definitely a Sandalwood Saturday. I love the scent of the Proraso Offering....and to my nose the Al Rehab Oudy is pretty close in matching the scent.
    3 passed for a really excellent finish:)

    It would appear that mine is a jewel???? no notch and it is in a case with a push button release on each end. Does that make it an Ambassador or are the razor and box a mismatch?

    Thanks for the info!
