    Files are too large to post the photo. I used a J.R. Torrey "Our 136". This Torrey model is my favorite. It took me several months to find one at a price and condition I wanted. I honed it on films up to 3 micron and finished on a combination of Coticule and Thuringian. It's one of my best edges ever.

    Nice one pass shave. I'm kinda fried with the Bigelow/ Proraso scent along with the almond/cherry scented Italian soaps and creams and find it detracting from the shaving experience. I'll be moving on to others. Have a good one.

    Robert Klass Kissing Crane 6/8, re-honed on 8k synth and a Cumberlandite Anchor finisher - details in the honing thread. It shaved well, like a good 8k edge, a little more resistance than a good jnat edge or high grit synthetic. Also had about 1/2 second tingle from alcohol based AS, which I usually don’t get with a jnat edge. Cream was AdP lathered with a Rooney 3/2 Heritage, AS was Myrsol Aqua Balsamica and AdP balm finished up.

    Cheers, Steve

    Nice one pass shave this morning. This razor feels almost to small for my hands it's very compact. Have a good one.

    This old razor is very well made with awesome steel .Takes an extremely keen edge . Destroys whiskers with almost no effort .Was real lucky finding her .Sodren's do not pop up very often.
