    Thanks Karl. It’s fun to see how close, or how far :), the finished product gets to the vision.

    Wonderful shave today, from a trusted razor, and a manufacturer, that is on my top 5 list.

    Razor- F.W.Engels. No model name.
    Brush- Vie-Long, Horse Hair knot. It's a short knot, which gives it some well needed backbone. Very nice brush.
    Soap- ARKO. Or, what is left of it.
    Aftershave- Pinaud Clubman

    Starting off Halloween week with the Slasher, a late 1800’s razor made for the C.W. Hackett Hardware Co. out of Saint Paul, Mn.

    Sticking with the First Line Shave Razor Ruby Undead for the suds and smells.

    Very nice stuff, Tom! Glad the soap was not in the cantankerous base. Lol!
