Have a great night all!
Superb shave, setup and pic Gary. That's a fine looking razor.
I am certainly looking forward to more regular visits to the theater. Last weekend I took the family to see Raya. A little more kiddy then some of the more recent animated features, but fun. The animation was stunning, but the characters were OK. Kind of like a youthful Tomb Raider slash Zelda type story to me. I just can't wait for the Marvel releases. We are going through all the movies at home and rewatching. We finished through the first Avengers watching them through cinema release date order.
Very nice Matt. I really like the natural lighting. Looks like a great shave.

Thank you gentlemen.
Ron, the Jurgen Hempel Jarwin is an excellent razor. As pointed out by Chris in the video below, only 10 were made, and I have number 10. I have never seen A Darwin Deluxe up close and personal but this looks identical, the blade is easy to load, and I get an excellent 2 passes shaves with it.
Superb colours and photo!

Soft colors enhancing a beautiful razor!
A colorful setup to celebrate Spring?
No one informed me that yesterday was the spring equinox so I didn't measure it. In fact I wouldn't know where to find an equinoxometer....
And who knows how much it costs!
To insist on fighting against the evidence is what politicians do, not intelligent and pragmatic people: and I am one: I surrendered to spring.
I consciously used a spring fougére (at least...I think it is) that came from the tulip country.
The growth was minimal, but the efficiency of the gear made for an excellent shave.
A fairly spring-like Chet Baker kept us company.
