    Razor: Taylor Eyewitness The 1000
    Brush: Jayaruh 381 Badger/Boar
    Lather: Blackship Grooming Company La Concorde
    Aftershave: Black Ship Grooming Co. La Concorde
    Additional Care:
    Stirling Alum Block
    Humphreys Cucumber Melon Witch Hazel
    Stirling Unscented Glacial Balm

    Fabulous three pass shave this morning with the Taylor Eyewitness The 1000. This razor may hold the honors for delivering the closest shave with a straight in my den. I would venture to guess that this shave would pass the cotton ball test.

    I did manage to receive some slight feedback from the alum bar. The post shave with the witch hazel, balm and splash finished off this fine shave nicely.
    I hope you all have a nice day gentlemen.

    I just got a message on message from the wife of a friend that I knew before they moved to Charlotte NC. His birthday is this month and wants to surprise him with a straight razor. I guess putting up my shave pics on my personal FB page kind of peaked their interest. She wanted to get him a kit, but I said those kits are useless. I told her that Razor Emporium renovates straights and make them shave ready for 30 to 60 dollars shave ready. I also told her and explained it needed to be a 5/8 round point vs a square point. I gave her my pics on the difference and explained why the round point is recommended for a newbie. I also downloaded. an Omega synthetic for 10 dollars from Maggard's and explained why synthetic is better beyond the inexpensive cost. Finally, I downloaded the Master Straight Shaver, Lynn Abrams tutorial on straight shaving and told her that her husband needs to look at this vid before he puts the blade to his face. Weeks before has been asking me about honing a straight and I naturally went over the different stones and told him about lapping films. If he goes this route, then I will invite him to this thread.
    There are other people that are FB friends that have been exposed to my shaving exploits. I think it's a great idea to post your shaving pics on your FB page with explanations. You never know. You might convert someone

    I decided to do another shave with the Hyper-Aggressive plate today. I got another nice shave but don’t feel that it was as smooth as the ST plate. I’m going to keep switching plates to figure out which one I like best.

    Have fun!
