Re: SOTD: November 25 - December 1, 2019

B492CCE0-57E1-4EC9-8BA4-1A0C69DAFE89.jpeg In keeping with my pledge for Decadent December, this morning I broke out the Eclipse Red Ring, originally manufactured in Sheffield, England, which is a mid-aggressive shaver with a very narrow sweet spot. I was happy with the shave, but because of joint i...

Re: SOTD: November 25 - December 1, 2019

AC64947F-CFB4-40D1-906F-CD4C5F154CFB.jpeg I’m liking this razor more and more every time I shave with it. I do use some of my razors for just face shaves (i.e. Rex Ambassador), but my top criterion is versatility. If a razor has a sweet spot that delivers both head and face utility, that ticks all ...

E5552BA1-197D-42DF-AFD5-BD401A51266D.jpeg Quick face and noggin scrape this morning, but still a good DFS. I can always depend on my Vector, one of my favorite single edge razors! Brined the turkey overnight. Am off early with the bride to prepare Thanksgiving dinner. This is the first of two - her...

BE1587CE-C4FD-4824-8B1E-FD438531591B.jpeg The Jones Shake Sharp is deceptive-looking. It looks like a 1912 Gem razor, but uses DE blades. When I first examined the blade exposure, I was prepared for an aggressive, technical shave. However, the shave was highly efficient and surprisingly smooth. The...

A76F730A-775A-46AA-A8EC-6796B5FFFE19.jpeg First shave with my new/old Cooper Monobilt! Effortless three pass BBS. I’m in love with a 90 yr old razor! Go figure! Did not do the dome today; it’s still healing from it’s fracas with the OneBlade. It should be ready for the Jones Shakesharp tomorrow. Wh...

6F67F42A-147E-45F4-8A48-E8D56B9CAC9D.jpeg Great 3 Pass face BBS. The Barbasol Floating Head shaved smoothly, but not as efficiently as I would like. My R41 and Colonial Silversmith are both much more efficient allowing a 2 pass BBS. The Cryogen AS had me holding the side of the sink after applying ...

The razor is so nicely weighted and balanced in the hand. The only disconcerting part of the experience is the lack of auditory feedback. But boy d...

Cleaned and sanitized, the razor delivered a smooth DFS to both face and dome with a first-time new blade. Great shave, with a wonderful razor. The jury is out as to whether I prefer ...

In any case, my R41 spoke to me this morning. I switched the Bulldog handle for a Barber Pole handle, and the rest is history! Great two...

D8E65D6D-E9B4-4726-AF3E-70B501D88543.jpeg As I suspected, when I switched out the Yaqi 4” handle for my 3.25” Bulldog, which I’m quite used to, I ended up with a 2 pass BBS of both face and head. Love that scalloped head coupled with the open comb. In addition, I finally found a scentless AS that m...

ED9D34BD-0E55-4B87-AB16-91FF399099A5.jpeg Smooth and comfortable DFS of face and dome. The open comb scalloped head easily mowed down two days’ whisker growth. The handle is much too long for my taste (4”), but the head is an effective design. I think my shave would have been closer with a shorter ...
