    Filly 14 Sub Cero, the first outing since concluding the 153 shave edge test. I refreshed the edge for the first time in 16 months, and it shaved just like I remember - great! Cream was Musgo Real lavender and the AS was SMN lavender.

    Wow, the scales look incredible, as does the razor. The reason I love this thread is that I get to enjoy seeing razors y'all have.

    15/16 CHV No 140 in ivory, soap was La Maison du Savon de Marseilles (The House of soap from Marseilles), apparently a Pre de Provence clone. The appearance, performance, and scent is identical. The first 22 of 28 ingredients are identical except two sets of two ingredients are swapped in order with each other, and it uses argan oil rather than shea butter. A Keyhole 3 did the lathering honors and a splash of Harris Pink finished up a BDBS shave.

    Had the opportunity to sort out and sharpen a friend’s Dove Bismarck 2.

    Now sporting a Shapton 16k edge, and I think he will enjoy it.
    Enjoy your shave.

    Nothing like a big brush loaded with warm Colonia to start the day off right. Razor is a ‘Superior Temper’ Sheffield, and AdP AS finished things up.
