I am trying to recreate the Titanium BBS-1 without actually buying one unless someone has one to sell.
Did the Titanium BBS-1 have a Stainless steel handle?
And the shave, phenomenal with the edge going to the LASSC BBS-1, the added weight of the stainless steel razor head adds something special.

Another neglected razor...inspired by quite a few Tech pics and mentions lately. This soap keeps hanging on, despite my best intentions.
Have a great day all!
awesome Canuck tech shave Jason.Jeeves rocks..
Thanks, Gary. Jeeves of Hudson Street was one of my favourite artisans. The lather was top notch and a few of the scents are still some of my faves. The Tobacco Bay Leaf for sure.
i agree.my barbershop and conservatory jars are prized gems.

Early Morning Shave,
A wonderful shave to finish my shaving week off and the focus run of the Dorco Prime Platinum blade which have been a joy to shave with throughout the focus run.
Out of the three Dorco DE blades that i have revisited the Prime Platinum are my favourite. I find them smooth forgiving and efficient which for me is a great combination and are well suited to my skin type'.
The WS boar brush was my first brush and still a work horse. Nothing fancy but nothing wrong with it either. It doesn't have much backbone and has shred a hair or two over the years, but it still does the job what more is required.
An enjoyable 2 pass + pick- ups comfortable silky-smooth shave with no errors to report.
Finishing to the shave off with a few small dollops of L'0REAL Barber Club Reinforcing ASB.
My face is feeling smooth cool & smelling divine.
Keep safe and enjoy your day ladies & gentlemen.
