Love the razor, I have one like that!
Today's shave has something I've never posted before.
Super Kikuboshi razor
Kikuboshi strop. I have never posted this. I rarely use it as I'm not sure what material the fine piece is. In one sense it seems like cordovan. In one sense feels like some sort of foam. So I really dont know. I just love that it is a kikuboshi strop.
One of my favorite brushes. Graydog Backyard maple.
Captains choice venture soap
Lucky tiger aftershave
Ending my little run of Heljestrands with this faux frameback model.
It was a nice run.
Enjoy your shave.
Kudos on the cool strop.
Thank you, Sir!!!
They sure are but its hard work to photo the scallop on the spine, But the razors are fantastic to use just the right weight and balance in the hand.
Love the Heljestrand Razors and love the sports car you have their beautiful razor.....
Pradat brun frameback with damast blade. Finisher was a piece of thuringer. I think this will give a smoother edge then an ozuku.
Arko sensitiv shaving cream + tüff sensitiv as.
@TestDepth thanks for the inspiration. Next shave will be with a heljestrand.
Definitely feels like sports car handling!
I look forward to seeing it. Wonderful shave!
Testing out the stone that I refurbed yesterday (details in the hone thread), the shave was sublime, just stupidly smooth. Now I am BDBS. If a stone can put this kind of edge on a Gold Dollar/Monkey, it’s a winner. Soap was MdC vetiver lathered with a Rooney beehive 1, and a dab of ABC almond balm finished up.
I Love framebacks's
F.W.E Perfect Temper
Finished on the Slip Tooth hone shown
First bloom of the reknotted 1942 brush using milled Palmolive stick

Taylor of Old Bond Street Sandalwood
Rubberset 153 Silvertip
Gray Flannel Geoffrey Beene
Hart Steel 7/8
That looks like it went through a beautiful facelift. Would love to hear the story behind it.
Alright what does that soap smell like
Cape 2000 Swedish Steel, touched up on that ‘refurb’ stone and shave was perfect. Soap was 3P lathered with a Simpsons 59, and a dab of ABC almond balm finished up another BDBS shave.
Thank you Sir!!!
It did and very proud of doing that one, I have done 5 gold dollar mods in 2 years and it was the winner 2 years ago.
Tonights razor is from England. I had a very smooth 2 pass shave, that left me BDBS. Zero issues. Just a fine shaving razor.
