    Very unique and cool tang design. And those scales are beautiful.

    Been a few days since a shave...
    I do enjoy a heavier grind when it has been a while.

    Cheating a bit here, this isn’t today’s shave but one from 2-3 days ago that I got busy and forgot to post.

    Razor is a 13/16 Le Jaguar, soap was MdC rose lathered with a Rooney 3/2 Heritage, and Thayers rose petal finished things up. DBS.

    Cheers, Steve

    Cold Water Wash
    Van Der Hagen Luxury Shave Soap
    Jayaruh #326
    Gold Dollar 7/8
    CWR
    Barbasol Brisk AS

    My prep was just a cold water rinse. The Van Der Hagen Luxury Shave Soap face lathered well with the Jayaruh #326 synthetic horse brush. I did two passes with the Gold Dollar 7/8 razor and ended up with a close, comfortable shave. After a cold water rinse, I finished off with Barbasol Brisk AS. I am clean, smooth, and refreshed...
