    Apparently "Karve Shaving Co." has announced that they are producing titanium razors, taking orders from 1st May on.
    I cannot find any info on their website though.

    Well it’s rainy on this Thursday morning but oh well though not a tropical scent it sure reminds me of holidays none the less. Stirling Glacial Margaritas in the Arctic is an incredible soap period and that icy goodness must be felt to be appreciated. Just awesome stuff and the heavily mentholated matching AS is so good. It’ll make your fingers tingle for a few hours after you slap it on your melon!

    Karve CB with the C SB plate and a GSB is a recipe for a smooth and easy shave! Great weight, balance and it just looks so good! I enjoy this razor and haven’t had a single bad shave with it right out the box. Have the A, B OC plates and the B,C,D SB plates and they are all excellent.

    Reached for a brush I haven’t grabbed in a while in the APShave Co. 28mm Flat Top synth. The butterscotch handle is great looking but the brush is really nice for whipping up a lather and either painting it on or splaying it about like normal. Quite enjoyable really. I have to leave it out for a bit so I don’t forget about again.

    A Thursday brings with it hope we made it past Wednesday but we aren’t quite to Friday! Still a wonderful three pass shave and an ultra smooth finish! Spritzed on some B&BW Citron and off we go! Stay safe and enjoy your shaves!

    Had gotten away from DE's for a little while here but just got in an E plate for my Karve. So far I have SB plates B thru E and an OC B. All I can say is the SB E plate with a Gillette 7OC black just nailed it. Smooth and effective. Once you hit the "balancing point" in angle, that razor just takes off the stubble with a great level of efficiency while remaining smooth all along the way.

    On a side note, my order had gotten delayed by quite some time due to an administrative error at Karve. When I contacted Chris, he found my order and immediately shipped it out by the fastest delivery method possible. From Canada to northeast US I had my E plate in 3 days. Super service!
