    The CTAPT razor shaves comfortably and effective - about the same as the Game Changer 0.84 OC.
    The razor head weights 41 grams (including blade), today with a stainless steel handle of 95 grams.
    Tomorrow I will test this razor with a titanium handle for comparison.

    The handle seems too light for the razor head - I'll try a stainless steel handle tomorrow again.

    Weds NOvember 6

    No Repeat (mostly) NOvember. Up today is a L'Essor hoe/lather catcher with a CV Heljestrand wedge blade I honed myself. Looking forward to this shave.

    Bowl/Scuttle - GP12
    Soap - MWF
    Brush - Rubberset 400-3
    Blade - CV Heljestrand wedge (2)
    Razor - L'Essor hoe/LC
    Post Shave - OSMA Pierre alum, Clubman A/S

    Shave rating 5 of 5

    Last time I shaved with this razor in OCtober, I used a GEM SE blade. Today I used one of the wedge blades I recently honed. The razor and blade provided a very nice, mild shave. I did two passes; first pass WTG was DFS. Second pass XTG and was BBS after second pass. The MWF provided excellent lather as usual. The alum was a little vocal on one side of my neck but that was it. Finished up with the Clubman A/S.

    Happy NOvember and great shaves everyone.

    Beautiful razor, Gary! They are becoming harder and harder to find! Almost looks like NOS!

    Enjoy your shaves,
