    Tonight's shave was great. I had a very smooth 2 pass shave, that left me BBS. Zero issues. It is with a little known razor, that delivers. The name says it all.

    Brush- Omega 10098 Boar
    Soap- Arko/Sandalwood scented

    The new Doble Temple's maiden voyage, what's to say? Shaves like a Filly 14 and many of us know what that's like, superb. Soap was I Coloniali Mango Oil lathered with a 22mm M&F with 2-band Heritage hair, Lucky Tiger topped it off.

    Inspired by Scott’s honey horn scale work for his W&B, I figured I’d take this one for a spin.

    I do love the transparency. Original washers were saved and used but not quite the original wedge ;).
    Enjoy your shave!

    5/8 Russian Straight Razor "Osobaya"(Special), made at factory STIZ in Moscow in 1957

    Had a great shave with this Soviet Era blade ,It mowed down whiskers like a Russian T-34 Tank busting threw the line .Its noisy like a T-34 too .Very audible blade .Louder than my German Hollow Grounds.Took a super keen edge.Honed on Sharpton Glass up to 16K than finished on my Escher .It is a Full Hollow ground Straight .Most of my Russian Blades are Quarter Hollows.Very impressed with this Razor.

    Black Beauty: I bought this cheapie for ~$7.50 for camping. The blade is pretty lightweight, and just shy of a full 5/8, but took a sharp edge and is seeming to hold it. I had a three days growth and ended up with bbs after the usual three passes.
