    So here is a razor not in Waits Compendium or anywhere else I can find on the internet but it's an Open Comb for OCtober. If anyone knows anything about this silver plated vintage travel razor, please fill me in. It was a smooth but very efficient shaver. Just a joy to use and have. The Vanilla Safi fit right in and is a generous sample from Pete who I hope is well. Take care everyone !

    Was all set up for a straight razor shave but started running behind schedule.....
    So, stropped and picked up the trusty Valet Auto Strop with the carbon steel Feather SE blade for a quick double pass shave.

    I had my first open comb shave today with a Gillette New Long Comb. It was an ok shave, I’m assuming mostly because of the blade I chose. I had a weird day and decided to order 100 Treet “Black Beauty” carbon steel blades so I was using one of those. I didn’t get a close shave but I’m assuming next time will be better using a better blade that I’m familiar with.
