    Cold Water Rinse
    Barbasol Original Shaving Cream
    Burma Shave Boar
    Gold Dollar 280
    CWR
    Barbasol AS

    The Barbasol Original Shaving Cream was applied with the Burma Shave Boar. One pass and touch ups with the Gold Dollar 280 gave me a close, comfortable shave. After a cold water rinse I finished off with Barbasol AS. I am clean, smooth, and refreshed...

    Love wielding the bigger Bartmann, 86 with the square point and 89 round, and a very unique scent with the citrusy hops soap.

    I did a touch up of the edge with a coticule. It greatly improved the edge.

    My homely Filly 14 user beiing used to test a new stone, details in the honing thread. Soap was the discontinued Savonnerie du Bon Berger Orange Lavande (it’s almost all orange), one of the few orange soaps made. A splash of L’OP Cedrat made a nice compliment.

    Same razor, finished this time with clear water strokes after thin slurry. Edge was great. Soap was 3P lathered with a Thäter boar, and ABC Almond balm finished up a super shave. The stone is good.

    An heirloom too, it does not get any better than that.

    Wow, are you the original owner?

    One of the few razors I will buy if a get a chance. How do you like the razor? Does it live up to it's reputation?
