    Very cool but a bit scary looking. She does have good taste.

    Always a joy to see that razor.

    Another 200k edge, this is a Geneva 6/8 (pre '36 merger) Pyramid 7. This is the only Geneva I own. @Steveclarkus said I needed to experience New York steel. I highly recommend trying to find a good Geneva. The Pyramid 7N is the 5/8 version.

    These are most likely not the original scales, but I like the personality they give to this blade. :)

    Brush- Omega 10098, boar
    Soap- Arko/Avon Spicy scented
    Aftershave- Vintage Avon Spicy. Hitching Post decanter

    Cold Water Rinse
    Cella Crema Da Barba
    Jayaruh #369
    Wade & Butcher 5/8
    CWR
    Cella After Shave Balm

    My prep was just a cold water rinse. The Cella Crema Da Barba face lathered well with the Jayaruh #369 Brush. I did two passes with the Wade & Butcher 5/8 razor and ended up with a close, comfortable shave. After a cold water rinse, I finished off with Cella After Shave Balm. I am clean, smooth, and refreshed...
