Well Mr. Headroom, both of your new blades are very nice looking. I've been pondering about a shavette but always wondered how my skin would handle it. You know, I think a straight shaving barber at the front of Stirling's new storefront would be great. They could also charge the person a rent fee and require that they use Stirling SS. As for your coworker, I have never heard anyone not like Stirling Blu. I love it so much that I put a little on at bedtime sometimes as aroma therapy before falling asleep. Blu will always be in my rotation. Happy shaving all!
