    Good morning!

    I decided to use my Blackbird OC this morning. It was a Christmas gift to myself two years ago. The start of my wet shaving Decadence. Three passes for near perfection. Awesome shave!

    Merry Christmas to all my TSD friends! [​IMG]

    Still dialing in my new ikon B1 OC. Shaves so far have been smooth and efficient despite the presence of the notorious “wavy blade” phenomenon.

    On a whim, I picked up a Parker SBF-11FB open comb TTO razor. I'd read online that this was a cheap quality, extremely aggressive razor. I think it's decent quality and not overly aggressive at all. Had a comfortable BBS with an Astra SP blade. Not bad.

    (Sorry, can't seem to get pic to come out straight)
