    Today i used an old shefield blade.
    M.J.Higgins 5/8 i think full hollow spike. I say i think because it is a thick heavey piece of old steel. Very little i could dig up.
    It did give a nice shave, just not as loud as a thinner blade woukd be. 20160505_074926_resized.jpg

    I need to get started early tomorrow morning, so I did an evening shave. Some of you might have seen that I recently acquired another new to me straight razor, a Charles Adams, and a hone. Well, I tried honing it up and using it tonight. Ouch!

    I made two passes with it and it did cut hair, but left much to be desired. I'll put up a separate thread on honing and where I go from here.

    Anyway, I finished off my shave with a third pass using my Engstrom frameback and got a nice DFS! Thank goodness for the Engstrom to pull me through!
