Your brush fascinates me, every time I see it!
OCtober 6th, Tues, 2020
Razor: Razorock old type-MFG 2015> very nice mild razor but with a extra wide KAI drives it up a notch in efficentcy.
Blade: Kai SS (5) Excellent blade for longevity, Sharp & smooth. Nice to have a few tucks for milder razors IMO.
Soap: Razorock XXX- Excellent scent and lather qualities.(used my first tub up)
Brush: Yaqi 24mm tuxedo knot synthetic- Excellent lather creator with cloud like soft tips that I enjoy.
Pre Shave: Brushwash whole face with CeraVe hand bar cleanser + a dollop of Aloe Vera gel on beard area.
Prep: Cold water rinse after each pass of 2 + pickups. WTG + ATG + pickups.
Post shave: Razorock XXX aftershave with witch Hazel + a dollop of Nivea Balm.
Results: CCS,DFS,BbS + no irritation + no weepers= Excellent shave with my RR Old type DE razor.
Have some great shaves! Stay and think safe in these times!
Thank you, it is a favourite of mine as well. It is a brass tool ferrule over top of a full handle. I turned the handle to fit snugly under the thin ferrule. I made a couple like this- the other is in S Korea with @Keithmax.
What was originally that ferrule for?
Brass is beautiful!
It is originally for turning tools/chisels:
What a creativity and imagination: great!
