    Nice pic, Jim. What's the wood on that brush? The grain pattern is stunning and I like the way you made the brush so the waist of the handle actually follows the shape of the rings.

    This is the Alpha Razor in my shave den. It can be a little intimidating as the safety bar guard is rather short. The blade is practically sitting right on top of it. So, there is a little bit of a learning curve but, once 4-5 shaves are in it becomes more natural and for me is second nature. It’s the only razor in my den that feels like it’s wiping away the whiskers on my face. Light touch and a controlled fall is best how I can describe my shave technique with the Rx. Just a sublime and extremely efficient razor. Definitely my favorite safety razor regardless of format......

    A Stirling SEptember

    Prep: Cold water and Stirling mentholated pre-shave soap
    Blade: GEM PTFE
    Razor: GEM G-Bar
    Brush: Satin Tip 'The Purest' synthetic
    Soap: Stirling Piacenza
    Post: Witch hazel, Stirling Piacenza aftershave

    Nice and easy shave. The G-Bar works well but this blade may be on its last legs. Can't recall how many shaves are on it but it wasn't quite as efficient as it should be. Nevertheless, good shave in the end. Enjoy your day!

    Tabac Thursday's Shave
    [​IMG]

    Cold Water Wash
    Tabac Shave Soap
    Jayaruh #314
    eBarbershop Schick O Clone
    Schick Twin Blade
    CWR
    Tabac AS

    My prep was just a cold water rinse. The Tabac Shave Soap face lathered well with the Jayaruh #314 badger brush. I did two passes with the eBarbershop Schick O Clone Safety Razor with a Schick Twin Blade and ended up with a close, comfortable shave. After a cold water rinse, I finished off with Tabac AS. I am clean, smooth, and refreshed...
