    I know. But I couldn't resist, for $15 or so. I plan on coating the inside of the scales, with epoxy, and see if that does anything.

    How was the shave with that Martinez razor? I looked at his site, and he makes some beautiful razors. Too rich for my blood though. One day i might get lucky, and acquire one. You do have some very very nice razors in your collection, and i always enjoy seeing what you buy.

    Cold Water Wash
    LaToja Shaving Stick
    Jayaruh #330
    Dbl Duck 5/8
    Gillette Aristocrat 46-47
    Gillette Silver Blue
    Pinaud Vanilla

    My prep was just a cold water rinse. The LaToja Shaving Stick face lathered well with the Jayaruh #330 brush. I did one pass with the Dbl Duck 5/8 Razor. Then in honor of King Gillette's birthday, I did a second pass with my Gillette Aristocrat with a Gillette Silver Blue blade and ended up with a close, comfortable shave. After a cold water rinse, I finished off with Pinaud Vanilla AS. I am clean, smooth, and refreshed...

    Fancy razor day. Le Grelot 359 6/8 Lotus Spanish point Medaille d’Or Paris 1931 in ivory, one of a cased pair. MdC fougere was lathered with a Rooney 3/2 Heritage 3-band and D. R. Harris Pink finished things up. Great hollowground razors these old Le Grelots.

    Tabac
    Thater boar
    Tabac AS

    Great shaving razor, I can only envy those 2 beauties posted above. As far as I'm concerned a boar and Tabac go together like peanut butter and jelly. Excellent shave this morning. Have a good one.

    Thanks Scott, they’ve only been honed 3x I think, once by the original seller, once by mycarver who did the scales, and once by me just to put my own jnat edge on them.

    Cheers, Steve

    Thank you. This one took quite a bit of sanding, and I think I got lucky with the result.
