    DaltonGang Ol' Itchy Whiskers

    Newly Acquired, Restored, and Honed. It has been two weeks since I shaved last, and this little 11/16th inch razor took the whiskers off like they weren't even there. Just plain smooth. This is a great shaving razor.

    Razor- "The Blacky". Union B.S. Co. Baltimore Md.
    Brush- @oscar11 Creation. Synthetic Knot
    Soap- ARKO
    Aftershave- Avon Spicy. Willys Jeep Decanter.

    I put this Suzumasa on a Yellow Lake finisher for some touch up. It’s one of those razors that comes close but never quite reaches the shave I really want. It may be there now. It took down three days of stubble easier than most with minimal clean up. Super smooth result in no time :happy093:

    Argan Oil PSO

    Wade and Butcher semi-stub out for it’s maiden shave. Software was Floris 89 and a Keyhole 3 two-band by @life2short1971 did the lathering. Superb shave, the chocolate kiita stands proud today.
