    I am going to start of the month with my Wolfman SS Open Comb. I got this razor before they were a big thing. It still looks fantastic and delivers excellent shaves.

    Big advocate of the Leresche Mount 501 ( more commonly known as the #51 ). Fantastic shaves from this razor. It is on the aggressive end of mild and with a polsilver blade or personna lab blue I get fantastic shaves.

    Whenever I use an open comb razor, I will post in this thread only - not in the SOS: OCtober 2018 thread and not in the Open Comb Central thread.
    Would be a little bit overdone ... :cool:

    First shave with the PAA Ascension SS and it was near perfection. I know, only one shave in with a new razor. But, I did have a few shaves in with it’s lighter version, the Aluminum Ascension which is a very good shaver, just too light for my liking. This version however in SS is just about perfect in weight and balance for my style of shaving. An excellent start to the month and it can only get better with this handsome piece.....

    This is my first shave with the Segal OC. I have had it for a while. It is a snaggle-tooth Segal. I got some Segal blades from @Redfisher just in time for OCtober. Thanks, Mike.

    My prep was just a cold water rinse. The Stirling Eskimo Tuxedo Shaving Soap face lathered well with the Jayaruh #316 brush. I did two passes with the Segal OC Safety Razor with a Segal DE blade and ended up with a close, comfortable shave. After a cold water rinse, I finished off with Stirling Sharp Dressed Man AS. I am clean, smooth, and refreshed...

    I recorded my shave today. It was my second shave with the Segal OC razor. Mine is a snaggle-tooth Segal. It is missing one tooth. It still shaves great.

    Early morning shave an late evening post. I was distracted while shaving and managed to give myself a very good cut. If not for the cut it would have been great two pass shave. Good thing, I have another chance tomorrow.
