    First shave with my new 'pimp stick', Edward @Edward Brice made this baby custom for me and it arrived on Black Friday. I was blown away by this razor, it looks better than pics and the first shave was fantastic. Edward but a killer edge on it.

    Cold Water Wash
    Proraso Sandalwood
    Jayaruh #39
    J.R.Torrey 5/8
    Aqua Velva 5 in 1 AS Balm

    My prep was just a cold water rinse. The Proraso Sandalwood Shaving Soap face lathered well with the Jayaruh #39 brush. I did two passes with the J.R.Torrey 5/8 Razor and ended up with a close, comfortable shave. After a cold water rinse, I finished off with Aqua Velva 5 in 1 AS Balm. I am clean, smooth, and refreshed...

    Beautiful, classy modern art Keith! :happy088:
    I know you like shoulderless, thumbnotched, heavier grinds. Was there any other specs from you for the build, or did you let him do his thing?

    Thanks guys. It was very collaborative, Ed gave me lots of options and good suggestions. The spine work and the scales we are his ideas.

    Five days in Michigan’s north woods deer hunting, without a shave. Hot scuttle full of Tabac and FW Engles took care of that problem lickety split:)
