Re: SOTD April 5 - April 11, 2021

Yesterday morning's show shave star was the straight razor also known as Hess 44 stainless. It is a 6/8 full hollow but did a good job making the two-day growth disappear.

Re: Shaving soap or cream of the day

For the next few days my soap will be Solsetio with tallow and lanolin, made by Strop Shoppe. Out of business now, but the soaps were brilliant.

Re: Shaving schedule

Lately, as an extra unforeseen benefit of the 48 hour shaving pattern, I've been rotating from a safety razor (General) to a straight razor every two days. This means my SE razor blades are lasting 4 times as long as they did when I used the same razor to shave every 24 hours. I'll probably go back ...

Re: SOTD: March 29 - April 4, 2021

All of the usual great products, except that today I used an old straight razor with a nice freshly honed edge - a razor bearing the name Rugby. Sounds as if it might be an Anglophile product, but it doesn't bear the place of origin.

Re: What Did You Hone Today?

Yesterday I honed 4 old razors - Rugby, Sheaf-Works, Frederick Reynolds, and Dumas Aine 32 Mediacle Yardy (French, I suppose). As far as three of them are concerned, that's the good news. I used the Rugby this morning, and can't wait to experience the others whenever the mood strikes me. Bad news: A...

Re: Which straight razor did you use today?

Rugby Silver Steel 172. I like the 3 pin scales. I tightened them and the razor feels good in the hand. It's a full hollow, and there's an embossed decoration on the blade, "Rugby - Silver Steel" and that's all it says on both sides of the tang, without identifying the manufacturer (if not Rugby), n...

Re: Video : Semogue 830 Hereditas and Galahad C3 boar brushes

I've always been an admirer of Semogue Teiste. Thank you for the video. The plexi handle on the 830 is, as you say, a beautiful brush. The impulsive collector in me is suggesting that I should consider both the 830 and also one of the Mistura brushes, in the event I jump back into the brush acquisit...

Re: Which straight razor did you use today?

The Puma INOX I used this morning did a pretty good job removing the heavy 2 day growth, but using it reminded me that I want to remove the super sharp (unnecessary) point. No nicks or cuts, but there were scratches on both sides of my neck down below the ear, where the lethal point almost brought b...

Nothing pleases me more than to declare this morning's superb straight razor shave was the product of Filarmonica 14 Novodur blade with courtesy, in part, of the black jasper gemstone. (photo shows blade in oil for storage)

Re: Shaving soap or cream of the day

Even though it's not my favorite vetiver scent, I've got to keep using the Fine Fresh Vetiver soap. Makes a great lather regardless of how it smells.
