I can't use vintage or modern safety razors, so I thought I'd enjoy the nostalgia of shaving through other hardware and software. I picked up a never-used Opal Brush. I liked it because it's larger than other vintage brushes. We'll, at some point during it's first use, it cracked. I couldn't get a decent lather with it anyway, but I figured that would come with practice. I have an Ever-Ready to try in the next few days.
