    It's a lovely looking straight. Do you think your angle was too great, and caused the nicks (lip & neck)? Possibly it's an overhoned or coarse edge that is catching?

    Shave Soap of the Day
    Sat - Nancy Boy Signature Cream - Great Lather, smell, etc
    Sun - C&E Sweet Almond Oil Cream - Even better than the Nancy Boy
    Mon - Mama Bear Attar of Roses - Little long to get the lather and consistency going but I got it there. I'm finding that rose is not my thing so I may put this on hold with the Thayer's Rose Witch Hazel.

    Shave Results:
    Sat - 3.9/5.0 Neck got roughed up a little. I as in hurry and used the Sensor.
    Sun - 4.4/5.0 Much Better. Had to go real easy on the roughed up part.
    Mon - 4.1/5.0 Result was good but the scent was bugging me a little.

    merci Rich,

    Xchris ,

    I dont know what happend with the lower lip im always scared using it on the lower lip part and around the chin area under the chin area is still for me a NO NO with a straight . All I did was place the STraight under the lower lip area and wham it cut already into the skin. so your assumptions seem right to me.

    Over honed ? no Idea it was honed by Lynn Abrams. I did strop liek a maniac today on the paddle strop ? :eek:
    Def the angle is still hard for me under the lower lip area. Neck area is ok for me to do and cheeks aswell. Upper lip good aswell.

    The nicks on the lower neck were def. the result of the Fatboy with the feather Xchris forgot to mention it a Straight rarely gives me a Nick, straight more cut me directly into the skin when I have a wrong angle.
    It is fun to use Straights sofar dont give me BBS results but im not looking for that right now just to get a feel of what technique is needed to shave with straight.

    Im actually finding the stropping part is fun aswell , kinda puts you at ease connects you to the blade something a DE will never have you simply toss that into your razor.

    Gillette 1949 SS
    Proraso preshave, lathered soap and ASB

    The odd part-

    Dollar General Super Stainless DE Blades
    (Package gives no indication of who makes them, just says "Compare to Schick Double Edge Blades".

    Brush - NOS Ever-Ready C-40, Boars Hair I would guess.
    The short stiff brush really whipped up a fine lather, a little prickly on the face but I liked the lather it made.

    Blades - pretty smooth shave, 2 passes, 3 on my neck. I hesitate to say they are comparable to anything else until I've done a few more shaves.

    I would say the shave was an 7 out of ten.
