    Well since @Electrif pointed out that today is the anniversary of the patent date of the wonderful 1912 razor I decided to join in on a celebratory shave.

    The Grosvenor - 404 mixed
    OSP Bay Rum
    RR Hawk V3 -OC plate
    Feather Progurd [ 7 ]
    Pitralon Polar A/S Lotion

    Now getting back into the swing of this OC Razor. There is no doubt that to delivers great Shaves, but only if you have a light touch. Would not have had much success with it in my early Shaving days.

    The Colgate Mug Shave Soap lathered well with the Jayaruh #47 brush. Two passes and touch ups with the Gem Jr. Bar Lather Catcher with a Personna GEM SS PTFE blade gave me a close, comfortable shave. After a cold water rinse I finished off with Granddad's Blend AS. I am clean, smooth, and refreshed...

    Cyril Salter/ MS. ED2band
    Arko Stick-grated
    RR Hawk V3-OC plate & Super knurl handle
    Feather Proguard [ 8 ]
    Tuff Red A/S Lotion

    There are some who moan about the scent of The Arko, but it does not worry me as the Lather is so good. Just very hard to believe how easy it is to get an abundant Lather from this soap, and even with the Blade on its 8th outing The Shave was so smooth and comfortable. As usual with this Razor the finish was nice and close in all areas.

    Shame about the missing blade holder. I was lucky to get this OC. Most I've seen have been out of my range. A generous member that is on several forums had gotten an extra and was willing to make a trade for a razor I had.

    Beautiful razor, box and brush. Did you make that razor handle too?

    I had a very enjoyable shave this morning with my Star 1912 with bakelite baton handle. I love the audio feedback of these razors especially on the baton handles.

    Jayaruh Syn. No67
    Tabac soap
    RR Hawk V3-OC plate
    Kai CT Mild Pink [ 1 ]
    Tabac A/S Lotion

    Still using The Hawk V3-OC, but with a Kai Captain Titan Mild Pink blade replacing The Feather Proguard.
    A lot more blade feel today and though I did not time it I suspect overall Shave Time was reduced, and the Quality of finish very good.
