    Currently waiting on ten Feather carbon steel SE blades so I can strop them in my beloved Valet Auto Strop razor and get 50-60 shaves out of a disposable blade!

    Homelike has been around for a while. I have their Start razor (with two plates) and it's a quite good value in SS and a fine shaver.

    Just saw this and couldnt resist the few goodies. The shaving cream dish was the eye catcher for me and then the lather catcher

    Yeah I don't know if the razor will be shave worthy but I've never seen another example of the set.

    My new Pearl Flexi arrived this past Saturday, and I finally got around to taking it for its inaugural face drive tonight!

    Fantastic shave, paired with a new Parker Premium Platinum DE blade. Set on No. 3.5, it slalomed its WTG first pass through the always wonderful Tabac shave cream, taking all hair with it. I then lathered again, set it to No. 3 and went for the ATG second pass. Done. Resulted in a BBS both ways! Finished off with some Tet-A-Tet aftershave balm.

    Sidenote: As there were some quality issues - as there always is with a new razor model - I wanted to touch on those. My Flexi is a V4 (4th batch made) and everything works perfect with it. No blade gap issues, no bowed guards, no odd blade slants. Adjusting is smooth and perfect. Really the only issue I encountered is the painted red dot indicator... When I am done shaving and washing off real good my razors, I always dip them in 91% isopropyl alcohol, aka rubbing alcohol. When I did this with this razor, I immediately noticed some red oozing coming from the red dot indicator. I dried it off real good with the end of a q-tip which left red paint residue on the q-tip. This obviously does not affect the shave but it is still rather disappointing for a brand new razor.

    Maybe if you baked the razor in the oven for a couple hours it will harden the paint?

    I use Nu-Finish as a protectant (non wax non abrasive) but I don't know how it holds up to regular alcohol dunks.
