    One of my favorite framebacks, a wide Féret Freres (F&F) Hyalin, soap was PdP lathered with an APS synth, and a splash of Harris Arlington finished up frameback Friday.

    Besides the drop dead looks, the most distinctive thing about this big Engels is how noisy it is. I would never have thought a blade this big would be loud :transport015:

    Send that one to me Karl, the scales are all cracked … :eatdrink047:

    Shell 72 with a fresh, crisp edge from the Nakayama karasu barber size, soap was MdC Vetyver lathered with a Rooney Windsor. A splash of Myrsol K (peppermint) finished up a great Sunday shave.

    Steve, lovely blades you have. There was a auction about a week ago here in Sweden with a CVH MK No. 134, 17/16”.

    About $1.350… Even if I like to have one, I wouldn’t pay that amount.
