    I normally don't shave two days in a row but I wanted to try plate C instead of plate B in the karve this morning. This is my second shave with the Karve. Best way to decribe this shave.................OH YEAH !

    RazoRock 400 Noir Plissoft Synthetic Shaving Brush
    Timeless Shaving Bowl
    Murphy & McNeil - Crann Bethadh Shaving Soap
    Karve Razor – 3.25 Inch Handle, Plate C
    Voshkod Blade
    Nivea Sensitive Post Balm
    Pinaud Clubman Classic

    Third run with the Karve this morning and I can say that it is getting better and better. This is truly an amazing razor. I completed two passes and touched up a few areas on the neck. The Murphy and McNeil is some slick soap and performs great.

    Finished with Nivea and a little Clubman Classic aftershave.

    Y'all take care and have a great Monday!

    Another good shave. The Derby Premium is not my optimal blade but, it gets the job done fairly well if not great. It’s good for about 2-3 shaves before some tugging and pulling starts. The Karve definitely aids the DP blade in that the razor is extremely smooth feeling and holds it precisely and very rigidly. At least on my whiskers that’s what I’ve experienced. Decided to try the GD Preshave with the WSP shave cream and it was a fantastic combination. The WSP soap is great on it’s own but, the GD Preshave just gives it a boost in lather and the face feel post shave is amazing. Awesome finish and feel....

    What else can be said that hasn’t been said already? Just a super smooth operator with more than enough efficiency to get the job done on my particular whiskers. And that’s with all of the open comb plates that I’ve used so far. From open comb to straight bar configurations, the Karve delivers in every aspect from price, performance and composition of the razor. This can easily be ones end all be all razor for the rest of ones days including generations that follow......

    Thank you Gus. Honestly the Karve OC is just a very photogenic razor. I don't think you can take a really bad picture with the razor.
