    Most folks call it "Happy 4th if July"
    I tend to call it "Happy treason day"

    My all American shave was:

    Hart Steel straight razor

    Elite Razor Brush

    Stirling shaving soap, AS and ASB

    Even my cologne was American, Sonoma Scent Studios Winter Woods.

    The actual shave went down exactly as planned with one exception...
    The razor....At the last minute I picked up my 1914 Stoll Improved/Star Super Six...a lovely design by Richard Kampfe. It's actually a Kampfe Star Cru Steel lather cather with a 1914 shaped blade cover mounted reversed in a shovel head style...But for shave feel, I imagine this one feels just like the cru-steel and the blade cover makes it look cool, and makes finding the perfect angle a piece of cake....I love this one veddy much!!
