    Razor: Mongoose B2 w/Custom Made Handle (England)
    Blade: Feather Pro (1)
    Brush: Elite Razor "Tres Amigos" Desert Ironwood Beehive w/Envy White
    Soap: Route 66 Cavendish
    Aftershave: Folsom Shambala
    Although the handle looks like it may be slippery, I found just the opposite. The Mongoose shaved very close and comfortable, with the only draw back being a build up of lather in the baseplate slots. The posts that secure the blade are short, however, it was not difficult to load and secure the blade.
    Happy Halloween!!!

    Good morning friends, after a weeks vacation I'm glad to be back! Last night I had my second shave with the Merkur 15c / 7 O'C SS combo. I must say I really really like this blade. It is very sharp and smooth. It works well in the mild 15C but I bet in a more aggressive razor it would be even better. La Toja as always made a very nice super slick lather and the fact that it stays warm in my scuttle is even better. A great finish to a relaxing week+ off. Have a great day my friends!

    This is old Jim, but does the frankenrazor with the NEW bottom plate and TECH top cap shave differently ? I ask because I have a LC with no top cap. I can't find it.
