    Sunday shave, TH Bergholtz, Sunne Sweden. Better than pre honing. However I need to straight up the spine more to get a better angle.
    Splash Floris 1976.

    Does this win for having the most writing on a razor??? :)

    Throw in the old hard puck Fine Fresh Vetiver and it becomes an extremely enjoyable evening shave.
    Enjoy your shave.

    Thanks! …and I tried out “flatblading” with it in a few stubborn spots. Worked really well but I had never heard of that technique until reading it in a recent post of yours. :happy088:

    Filarmonica 14 Rejoneo, soap was Martin de Candre 4-oil Marseilles soap that I was trying out. It’s so slick that it will slide off that soap saver if it isn’t perfectly level on my sink. The soap worked really well with a SR but I doubt that it would appeal to DE shavers, but who knows. It will lather, but as expected from a Marseilles soap, the lather is not stable, so it’s basically a brushless product. Post shave is better than expected, this 4-oil soap is very ‘nourishing’ for a bar soap A little Myrsol Blue finished up a great shave.

    If you were a minimalist and so inclined, this soap would work in a travel kit as both a bath and shave soap.
