    While the MOP tang looks good, I am not a huge fan of the weight reduction.

    Today was rather nice from a lather point of view after the C&S test. The razor was a newly acquired Filarmonica 14 Sub Cero out for it’s second shave, and some vintage AoS Rose Absolute gave a perfect lather. A little splash of C&S 88 returned a very pleasant shave.

    Here’s my 11/16 TI Basic Black, freshened up last evening and shaved like you would expect from a C135 TI. Cream was SMN lathered with a Tulip 3 two band, and ABC red sandalwood finished things up.

    Send it to me, I am half German so that it comes in to safe hands . Honestly I have never used such a broad sword, isn’t it tricky under the nose and around the chin?

    It may be too dangerous for you Hans, send it to me Billy and when it’s down to 5/8 I’ll send it on to Hans. :eatdrink047:

    Today’s shave was very simple and difficult to better, Filly Novodur 14, ABC soap and almond balm. A Persian Jar 3 did the lathering. I am BDBS!

    So Steve, you are revealed! You don’t strop your razors, you actually hone them after every shave
