A big and thank you to @Dave in KY for his generous re-pif of this parker shavette and blades which arrived yesterday. I'm really looking forward to learning how to use it, although I must admit I'm pretty nervous too. I will be doing a little more studying on the use of a shavette & building up a bit more courage before giving it a go. Looking forward to stepping out of my comfort zone with this one in the near future and hopefully my initial use is a positive one or at least not too bloody. Thanks again Dave!!!
