    Thanks Keith.
    Funny that Silverloaf Kami came up today... that razor, combined with your Ed Brice beauty gave me a little inspiration for my latest pickup.

    This morning was rose morning, Filly 14 with Martin de Candre rose lathered with a Rooney 3/2 Heritage 3-band. Thayers Rose Petal toner finished up a rosy morning shave.

    So, you were the one, who bought that Ed Brice Kami, for cheap, on eBay. I saw and contemplated that one. I do hope you make a nice holder/sheath for it. :happy088::happy088:

    Yeah... started a little higher, dropped quickly and had to pull the trigger. Found it on his site with a Macassar Ebony sheath... might have to try and copy.
    Always hold my breath when getting a Kami in the mail - fingers crossed.

    I'm going to kick myself, if it turns into a great shaver.

    Awesome razors! Welcome.
    I’ve always found the Beau Brummel razors unique. Love the hammered tang!

    First go with both this razor & a Charnley Forest edge. 1 shave does not form an opinion, but good first impression. :)
    15/16 Wade & Butcher For Barbers Use... love the scale repair - definitely keeping that.
    Enjoy your shave.

    Beautiful Straight Razor you got there. Hope you and your family had a blessed day on Palm Sunday. Seems like time goes by so fast these days. Didn't realize the Easter Sunday was next week.
