    Thanks Joe! The Gipson is a good razor, however a little bit rough to my skin, I am more a Hollow Ground fan.

    Thanks Hans! I don’t use it too often. However, it's my easiest straight razor to use.

    I have that exact same razor.
    I haven't gotten around to shaving with it yet.
    I was planning on working it into my regular rotation a couple of years ago
    so I threw away the original wrapping paper that came inside the box.
    In retrospect, that was a mistake which I currently regret.

    Very nice shave with the Lund near wedge. Near wedges are always a little challenging for me but I do like their unique feel :happy036:

    Argan Oil PSO
    Shavemac 2-Band Silvertip Badger
    Ethos Lisse Collection Lavender Shave Soap
    Lund near wedge 11/16

    Always a joy to see that Lund. :)

    This was a pleasure of a shave on Thursday…
    Shapleigh Hardware Co.’s
    Diamond King No.7
    Brush: Sparrow Shaving
    Suds: Oleo Soapworks for WCS

    Fun blade with the unique coffin opening and highly flattering marketing… “finest Razor,” “finest grade of highly carbonized Black Diamond Steel,” and “finest grinding and finish.” I guess I found the Finest razor finally. :)

    And it did give me a fine shave.

    Henckels Friodur 14, soap and AS were Floris Elite, and a M&F Finest 1/3 did the lathering. Quite the luxurious shave, at least if you like large razors.
