    10/1/2014 Open Comb October / Badger Brush Week

    Prep: Hot shower with Nivea Face Wash with menthol, home made PSO
    Razor: Kamphe Bros. Star Razor, CMON Doble Temple straight razor
    Blade: GEM PTFE coated SE (3)
    Brush: Silver Tip Badger 23mm knot
    Soap: TOBS - Avacodo
    After: Home made ASB, Aqua Velva classic Ice Blue
    Cologne: Christian Dior - Cuir Cannage

    An easy 2 pass Darn Fine Shave + this first day of Open Comb October. The silver tip badger is soft and whipped up a great lather with the TOBS - Avacado. The AV brought some chill and the Cuir Cannage will have me smelling great all day.

    Have a blessed day!

    New Standards are not 1906. New Improved line began in 1919 and ended around 1929.

    Open Comb October... Merkur 11C, probably late 1950s. I repainted the handle to match the original white, and replaced the cap, which had a lot of corrosion from a blade that was left in the razor over the years.

    Here's how I received it...

    I can't say I'll use them all month, though, because I'm eagerly awaiting a sledgehammer PIF.

    you are correct. I checked the serial number more closely. the last number is a c, I had thought it to be an 0.
    my razor is a model 126, made in 1928. Sorry for the confusion.

    today was a Gillette long comb new with a ball end handle.
    no date code on this one, but it's pretty old also. 20141002_062038.jpg

    $_3.jpeg $_3-1.jpeg finally won a single ring.
    hope it gets here in time to join the oc party.
    I think it's from 1917.
