    Awesome Monday shave it’s the new to me single ring and the icing on the cake. JR427 brush. Thank you @Jayaruh love love love the brush.

    I used a new Gillette Platinum blade and unscrewed the handle 1/3 turn. 3 pass DFS no touchups needed.
    I do notice that the thick old blades facilitate opening the razor a bit. Much more stable, as the blade is twice as thick. Providing more tension. Next time I do it. I will shim the blade to get more tension on the cap. [​IMG]

    Blade - [​IMG] *5th shave
    Shave Brush - Ever-Ready 1960's vintage (Polished and re-knotted with a synthetic 26mm Ubersoft II knot from Envyshave by Razor Emporium.)
    Shave Stand by by Desire Metal Works
    Shave Soap - Artifact Soapworks - Old Spice Type

    I finally ran out of the dried up Old Spice India Cream and I decided to pull out one of my old Artifact Soapworks pucks. Literally my first shaving soap back in April 2016 when I first started my vintage wet shaving hobby. Looking forward to the shave tomorrow morning.
