    Aye, about time it made it to SOTD :happy093:

    A razor should shave at least as well as it looks - glad this one lived up to that standard :happy088: I’m just surprised you were able to leave well enough alone and not put your own edge on it. That’s saying something for the seller’s work :)

    This feels great in hand... what an enjoyable shave. A solid 17/16, but handles great and even sings a little on the strop.
    Enjoy your shave.

    Gorgeous Koraat Billy... love the idea of a modern 14!!!

    The Seller Used a Naniwa 12 K Gouken Kagayaki to Finish it as His Naniwa Progression..He Reckons this Stone is Finer than his Previous Naniwa 12 K Super Stone..He is Correct of Course..But..You have One..I Have One..Its Just a New Named 3rd Generation Naniwa 12 K Super Stone as the Video Shows above..I Told Gary this Without Going into Detail..I have this Confirmed from Other Sources..;)

    All the 3rd Generation Super Stones are FAR Finer than the Earlier Generation Ones & they Were Shit Hot..They have a Far Higher Grit Finishing Capacity than their Claimed Grit Rating..
    Aye,,In My Hands is has a Finishing Capacity Around 15 K..He Finished the Razor on a 20 K Suehiro Gokumyo..Its an Aggressive Stone by All Accounts..He Just Used 5 Laps on this Stone..Its Very Sharp..Wither it Improved the Edge from the Naniwa 12 K..Not Convinced of that..But Hey..:D

    I Am Pleased with His Work Mind..But..Yeah..I Will Put My Own Edge on it as Some Point.I Will Put a Natural Edge on it at Some Point to Suit My Own Taste..It Will Take a Smoother Edge from One of My Eschers I Reckon..But I Do Like the Edge the Way it is for the Moment..Summit..Different..So is the Modern Steel..Lovely Full Hollow..Few Custom Razors are Full Hollow Grinds & I have a Fetish for Full Hollows as the Vast Majority of My Collection are Full Hollow Grinds as Ya Very Well Know..I Am a Full Hollow Grind Fanatic..:happy097:

    Gentlemen, I think that we need a separate thread just for Billy’s memes - They’re great!

    CVH M.K. 33, soap and AS were Floris 89, the new potassium palmate version which lathers extremely well. Brush was a Rooney Beehive 1 3-band. Fantastic shave as the 33 has a fresh Jnat edge (see the honing thread for details).

    The frameback always strikes me as a odd razor so I don’t reach for it often. Today’s first pass was a little tuggier than I’d like but everything after that was a very fine shave. The curves make easy work of some of the most challenging contours of my face :happy036:

    Hot water preparation
    Argan Oil PSO
    Romera Wengue Chubby Manchurian Badger
    Castle Forbes 1445 Shaving Cream
    Arbenz Frameback
    Thayers Rose Petal Witch Hazel


    Happy shaving - Karl
