    Excellent Spice shave Andrew. So not to put you non the spot, which version do you prefer or too early for a decision.

    May 9 SOTA

    Straight Shave #269
    13/8 ArtRazor 1000 (4)
    MrEE LE #10 Brush
    Stirling Spice SS and AS
    Dickinson's WH
    Whiskers: 28 hrs

    Ok, I needed to be clean-shaven for tonight's service so I really wanted to see if my little fix on Artie really took hold. Recapping, I did three shaves with this razor that were not up to my standards so I croxed, stropped on linen and then the leather. Well, tonight's shave was great! Artie is now very sharp and rewarded me with a BBS shave with 2 passes. There wasn't any buffing, touchups, blood or irritation. Well, I had a previous scratch on my cheek that opened up, but I am not counting it. I chose the Spice in tribute to Andrew! It is indeed a wonderful scent. Applied my witch hazel and matching aftershave to end this epic shave. Have a great evening guys!

    Wonderful shave with the Yates Danny. As per Robert’s Rules of Order: I second the vote to keep Dave around.

    Glad you improved your results with Artimus! Fantastic shave Joe.

    Thank you, Joe. To my untrained nose, the scents are almost identical. The two soaps provide slightly different lathers, but that does not make one necessarily better than the other. So... that is my roundabout way of saying it is too early to have a preference. :D

    Don’t you look it when the corporate types let their infantile squabbles impact the common guy.

    Thanks guys! I should have never doubted my technique in the first place. However, it is the first thing we tend to blame than the tool.

    Awesome shave report and photo Bill. I have thought buying about the R48 several times.

    Love the shave and photo Andrew.

    Beautiful photo and shave Pierpaolo.

    Enjoy the day with the grandkids Danny. The Yates with the H plate is one of my favorite razors. Pure automatic with fantastic results.

    I’m a casual fan and don’t have cable, so it really doesn’t impact me too much, but my brother-in-law was pretty darn distraught. But my folks’ place is bordered by property owned by one of the owners of Comcast, so we had quite the conversation!
