    ESE 15/16 fully restored and a new dress - great shaver and it is massive, very wide blade and heavy spine plus the blade is very long. I think this may have been a special order by Paul Bunyon
    Caties Bubbles le Piment De le vie - hard too beat this soap, just fantastic

    you & me, both, brother! ;) I don't have too many razor that cross my path that are immediate 'keepers'- but this Bohler is one of those exceptions!

    This brush is what I call my #3 boar (experiment wise). It's been a long, long time coming but it's finally arrived (starting to break in nicely). Who knows, #3 could end up being #1. Anyway, very nice shave today. Have a good one.

    I had a pearlex once, sold it and am not sure why. It was a decent shaver and very good looking. At that time I was leaning towards big razors but now it makes no diff. I change like the wind changes directions lol

    the easiest one for me so far seems to be my Clauss 6/8 round end.
    a little hard to get under my nose, but much easier flipping the thick blades while stropping.

    I can finally post in this thread, after drooling over the razors for quite some time. Wade and Butcher 5/8 square point, with wood scales. First straight razor shave went very well.

    Shave of the week for me this morning. I get along really good with TOBS soaps (and creams) and the Lotus did just fine. Smooth, close and comfy.
    Have a good one.
