    5/8 FW.ENGELS LUCKY

    Had a wonderful shave with this Solingen Blade. This one loves to sing Very audible. I finished this razor on a J-Nat /Translucent Arkie progression .Razors edge was super keen and smooth.Love the scent of A/E Summer Fig.Soap performance was very good.

    Performance of Engels Razors are hard to beat .Argo Steel is great stuff .Too bad 1944 was the last year it was made .

    Jamie had me wanting to get a Heljestrand out, so today’s shave was with a 13/16+ MK 33. Cream was the always delightful Santa Maria Novella lathered with a Rooney Beehive, and a splash of Harris Pink finished up a perfect 10 shave.

    Wow. Now that is stunning. I keep my eyes out for a 32/33 but can’t find one anywhere.

    Thank you Basil, they can be challenging to find in the larger sizes.

    Yeah I agree. And when they do show up they are either really expensive or badly damaged.

    Well, that one was expensive, about like a good new Filly 14, and it’s the same size (the blade is shorter though and it’s much lighter), and as well made if not better ground, and that’s saying something if you know Fillys. It does have some light pitting further up near the spine, but it’s not an issue except for cosmetics and it isn’t very noticeable. And the scales are vintage ivory.
