    Had a shave tonight just like dad did(almost). 61 Slim Adj., Shark Super Stainless, TOOBS St. James Col., glass bottle Bruit with the metal tag on a chain. St. Louis Cardinal game on the radio. Only thing missing was a cigarette, a Falstaff beer and a herd of screaming kids.

    The razor is very nice I don’t use it enough. The blade worked well with it. I’m going to try the blade with an old type next I believe.
