Wonderful shave report Terry! Glad you found a razor that you really enjoy!
Excellent shave, pic and gear Evan! Glad to see you pick up a straight once again!
you may need the pivoting head....i think i started with a Trac II ,81-2 ish..i know those awful bic razors were around as well..
awesome shave and pic Evan..
I like 'em Paul.
I have two in my collection now.
Both are quite nice to use.
Been a long time coming.
But.... I finally found them.
Thanks, Jason. I had never before even heard of this brand. Normally, I prefer the 22-26mm knots, so this is a big departure for me, but I couldn't say "no" to that gorgeous knot.
It's no longer NOS, but I have never considered this hobby a money-making investment.
Thanks for the kind words, Gary.
Thank you, Charlie. He found a real soulmate.
Great shave, Evan. The most important lesson I learned in SR shaving, was to learn to accept "good".
Thank you, Joe.

Good afternoon gents!
Shavette Shave #212
Personna Hairshaper Blade (1)
Semogue OC Super Badger Brush
Stirling Christmas Eve SS and AS
Whiskers: 27.5 hrs
I normally don't shave with this amount of growth because I look acceptable, but it's church night and always want to look good for service.
I finally got a handle on how to lather with this brush. I know! I know! I am a slow learner with certain things. Lol! Anyway, I painted the lather on my face and then did the scrubbing circles. It wasn't such a lather hog and the soap didn't run down the handle. Achieved a nice, uniform, cushiony lather. I only needed one pass and minor touch-ups because of the new blade and very little beard growth. The result was a near BBC with a minor lip weep and no irritation. I caught myself on the edge of the bottom pink due to misplaced landing. If I didn't stop, then it would have been worse. Hit it with the pencil and it was gone without a trace. Gave myself a double splash of this awesome scent to end this fine shave. Have a great evening guys!
Thank you guys. I have had a pretty good day today. Mom's Absentee/Mail In Ballot arrived this week, so after she completed the ballot we took it by the main election office. They have a secure drop box for people that don't want to mail in their ballots. She was happy that she voted and didn't have to stand in line with the threat of Covid. We celebrated by going by and buying ice cream on the way home.
Fantastic picture. Glad the shave worked out well.
The new brush is gorgeous Joseph. Congrats. I am glad you guys had a safe return trip.
Great looking shave Terry. I am glad you enjoy the worlds most dangerous razor.
