    Used an old Japanese Straight today. I had a not perfect, 1/2 pass, then did 10 laps on a CroX pasted strop, then leather stropped it for 30. I then did a 2 pass shave, that felt like it didn't have an edge on it at all, like a butter knife. But no, the blade so sharp, it just wiped the 3 days of whiskers off, like nothing. I'm happy now. End result was BDBS(Baby Dolphin Butt Smooth). This was one of the first razors I acquired, so, my restoration skills weren't like I liked. So, when it come time to rehone this blade, or I am tired of the water spots, I will polish them out, then rehone the blade. Excellent feeling razor.

    Razor- Japanese "Coral". "For professional Barbers Use"
    Brush- RazoRock 400. WD High Mountain Badger
    Soap- TOBS Eton College
    Aftershave- Arctic Blue.

    CV Heljestrand: I thought about selling this razor because it is smaller and lighter than I prefer but based on today's shave I am leaning towards keeping it.

    Nice shave this morning. I think this cashmere knot is going to be too soft for me but it worked up a excellent lather. Have a good one.
