    Glad to hear that things are better Jeff. You’ve inspired me to bring out one of my hardware store razors, a 6/8 Simmons Hornet - it’s as thinly ground as a Filarmonica. You have to love the ‘Warranted satisfactory or no sale’ stamp. Soap was MdC agrumes and Myrsol limon finished up a perfect shave.

    Karl’s big W&B yesterday had me pull this one out…
    Wade & Butcher For Barber’s Use
    Brush: Chisel & Hound
    Suds & Splash: Zingari Man
    Not quite as big, but a nice 17/16”, and a pleasure to use.

    Beautiful razor Tom!

    Rifuto 815 Silver Steel by Perfectworks. This just arrived yesterday and I am very happy. What’s the odds of a JRazor singing? Well, this one does and you can see why. It needs some TLC but it’s very near full width. Soap was ABC previous version lathered with a M&F L7 Finest. A little Cade balm finished up a great autumn shave.
