    I didn’t think that would work Hans, lol.

    Filarmonica 14 Sub Cero, this is the one that went 153 shaves on one edge. This edge only has 9 shaves on it and is going strong. Soap is a sample of Stirling sheep tallow Varen (recommended) lathered with a Simpson 59, and a splash of Agua Balsamica complimented the Varen scent nicely. Varen is a scent very similar to the discontinued Valobra fougere for those interested.

    Féret Fréres 7/8 frameback, the soap was AoS lemon tallow in the UFO bowl, and a spash of Myrsol Limon topped off a fine shave.

    You’re absolutely right about that, Hans! I don’t know how you can stand to have that awful thing in your den! I have a nice shiny Gold Dollar I’d be glad to exchange for it! Hey, I’ll even throw in a new Veg! Just because I’m that kind of guy! :D
