    1BFCAFEF-AEB0-417A-94B4-3C851A6A33B4.jpeg So let’s carry on with the OCs. Today’s ritual fell to just about one the prettiest razor I have in the collection, the 1938-39 Sheraton. This one is also courtesy of Chris Spencer at BackRoadsGold and plated in 24k. Stunning looker and a phenomenal shaver. I would rate this particular razor as middle of the road on the aggression scale and slightly more so than my 34/35 OC Aristocrat. Loaded up with any good DE blade and it is a smooth shaver.

    Soap of the day was B&M Seville just to keep with the barbershop theme. Great scent and between the CBL and RazoRock this week this one is the more vibrant scent. Great performer.

    Loaded up the same brush I have used all week and went to town. By the way if you are looking for a great brush with some good backbone and scritch this is one you might want to take a look at. Rocky Mountain Barber Company, which they say is Best Badger but I don’t know because it has more scritch (which I enjoy) than any Best Badger I own. I got mine when they first came out Oct 2017 and have been impressed ever since.

    Proceeded to get through a very nice two pass DFS which for a Friday was thoroughly enjoyed. Take care, safe travels and happy shaves all! We The North!
