    Absolutely perfect shave, with a Newly Acquired, Restored, and Honed razor. The Eschers Thuringian stone put a wonderful edge on this razor, and it went through 3 weeks of heavy beard, like it wasnt even there. This brand never disappoints me, and is one of my favorites.

    Razor- C-MON "Special" Solingen Germany
    Brush- @oscar11 creation, with synthetic knot
    Soap- ARKO
    Aftershave- Florida Water.

    Thanks Claude. :eatdrink047:
    Fun design note... he shaped the razor’s tail in the form of a boot or shoe, for travel. :)

    Happy birthday @Karl G and beautiful razor @taskind - but obviously dangerous, so you had better send it to me for safety reasons. ;)

    Today I’m still stone testing, up for the shave was a Joseph Rodgers Refined Steel, cream was SNM and AS was Myrsol Limon. A lovely shave!

    Nice razor Billy! Like the shape of the blade, have to find some more Sheffield razors. Did you know that CVH was in Sheffield to learn more about razor production when he was young?

    Aye..I Know CVH was in Sheffield to Learn Production Methods..He Picked Up a Lot from there & Matched Em & Maybe then Some..The Brits were Way Ahead of the USA in Production Methods as Well at One Time Due to Earlier Industrial Revolution Methods..American Investors Invested in the Wade & Butchers Company for Example..Thank You.. :happy088:

    Mint & Shiny Sheffield Blades are Getting Harder to Find in the UK..They are Beautiful Shavers..This One was NOS Factory Fresh when I Got it Like All of My Sheffield Razors..:)

    Filly 14 DT Blue #1 testing out a stone/tomo match, the cream was unscented XPEC scented with 1 pump of MdC santal fluid soap which is a very nice sandalwood scent. A splash of Myrsol Agua Balsamica View attachment 249032 topped off a BDBS shave.
