    Thanks, but I still have plenty of Rat Razors, in line to restore. Rat Razors have character, like a Mutt Dog.

    Last day of the holiday and last day of the smiling razor theme. Today's Riga Razor has just a mild smile but takes and holds a wonderful edge.

    6/8 DD Satinedge
    Tabac
    homemade brush

    Nice shave this morning. This DD came from a local barbershop that was in business when I was a kid. I have the original scales but they're badly warped. Have a good one.

    A Founder’s Breakfast Stout sure does look good... it is morning... but it is a “breakfast” stout... can’t be wrong. :)

    Today's shave was with a Newly Acquired, Restored, and Honed razor. I had a perfect 2 pass shave, like a hot knife through butter, that left me BDBS. Zero issues. This razor takes a very sharp and soft feeling edge, when finished on Welsh Slate Stones, and an Arkansas Surgical Black.

    Razor- Wm Elliot & Co. Germany
    Brush- JR#262 . Birdseye Maple/Ebony wood. WD Silvertip Badger knot.
    Soap- Eton College, by Taylor of Old Bond Street.
    Aftershave- Vintage Avon Spicy. Triple Crown Decanter My second favorite, behind Shulton Old Spice

    1975 5/8 Russian Straight

    Had a very nice shave with this Russian Straight .She left me BBS in several passes .I do prefer my 1940 thru 1960 Russians Straights their steel seems to take a little smoother edge .I used the same finisher on the 1975 razor.The edge was good but not as comfortable as my older ones . rps20190206_224142_243.jpg

    St Joanis, soap was MdC lavender lathered with a TOBS silvertip. A little Harris Pink finished up and a spritz of MdC lavender EdT topped things off.
