    Wanted to share something new I tried today to help the razor "sit up" for photos. Took a small, clear command hook and ground part of the hook so it would fit between the scales. worked well even though I didn't use the pic it was in. :)

    Thank you, Sir!!!

    They are not that good only what I have restored and enjoyed doing everyone, my motto is to get it cheap restore it back to its full glory. And that has worked up to now but I do have a few that I got and well they were too far gone.... but they still shave.

    Wine bottle stopper with cork works as you have the plastic base with the cork, that you trim to fit between the scales and won't blunt the heel...

    Shave #91 with the Filly 14. The shave was excellent. Based on my recent trip to visit Alex Gilmore and the use of his microscope, I’ve slowed my stropping speed and concentrating on maintaining better edge contact with the strop end-to-end (the blade smiles a little at the heel) and it seems to be helping. Soap was Santa Maria Novella lathered with a Simpsons 57, and the AS was Myrsol Agua Balsamica BBS this Saturday morning.

    Went all Italian... razor, brush & soap. I’ve only seen this blade once before, and it is a nice almost 8/8” heavy razor. Don’t have many Italian options, so glad I was able to pick it up.

    Gold Monkey, testing the stone that it’s resting on, a softer stone, yet fine. Shave was BBS, soap was ABC hard soap lathered with a Keyhole 3 , and Myrsol AB finished up.
