Wostenholm Week -Day 2: restored 5/8 frame back
I'm still using the pyramid method on the Naniwa 8K and 12K followed by 20K, chromium oxide and cubic boron nitride for touchup that Mike reminded me of (the pyramid part). I used the Feon a few shaves back and it was a little rough. It is amazing how improved the edge and thus the shave is after this touchup.

Mr Freeze, nice setup. How do you like that razor?
I really like it. Nice and nimble. Easy to hold. Not as bulky as my 208. It has a really nice edge on it as well.

I really like the scales on that razor. What kind of wood are they made from and what finish is on them? Do you need to do any maintenance to it on occasion?
Wenge wood. Here's the thread on that razor: http://theshaveden.com/forums/threads/tsd-rocks.50324/
I've only used it four times since it came home, so no maintenance yet. I do carefully dry them after I shave.

I had a Great Shave today with my Kropp 6/8th ..One ATG & One WTG Pass..I like this Cheap as Chips Vitos Tallow Soap..It can hang about there & doesn't offer me any irritation as just about every Artisan Soap that I have tried does..I add a Wee bit of Glycerine to it & for me its the Dogs Danglies..Good Karma..
First shave with my new Japanes Hanamasa 7/8 frameback, a very nice 2 pass shave, this is one hell of a shaver!!
