    Heljestrand frameback

    Speick shaving stick

    Each time I try the razor is getting better. But it is not finished. The cheeks are absolute smoot, but part of the chin is not close enough.

    Took a hiatus from the smaller Heljestrands and pulled out the big gun... a Heljestrand 14.

    7/8” of Swedish fun.
    Enjoy your shave.

    Shave #88 on the Filly 14 Sub Cero, still shavin’ on. Cream was AdP lathered with Simpsons 57, and AdP balm finished up. Great shave and fragrance for a spring morning. And no, the blade has not been touched up or anything, the little kiita is a prop, literally to hold the razor up, and give me something different image wise. I was getting bored with the same compositions.

    One thing that I have noticed, when you have a lot of mileage on the edge, the soap noticeably matters, and price doesn’t seem to be a factor. I haven’t done any soap testing, but I intend to. So far, the best soaps have been 3P (one of the cheapest), AoS Ocean Kelp, AdP (one of the most expensive), I Coloniali Mango, ABC hard soap, and Santa Maria Novella (pricey, but a generous 220ml jar).
