The 1914 My Daily Driver?

• Pre: Clearly Natural -- Vitamin E bar
• Razor: EverReady 1914; Little Lather Catcher
• Blade: GEM PTFE (2)
• Brush: Arabian Knight Black Fibre by Rudy Vey
• Soap: Martin de Candre -- Fougère (33)
• AS: Krampert's Finest Acadian Spice Bay Rum

Image

This Little Lather Catcher may very well become my daily driver. It is so smooth & mild feeling yet I nailed the angle today and it delivered as close a shave in 2-passes as either my Cobra or OCMM. An almost Centaurian, this razor is still doing its job & doing it well. I may just have to look around for an even nicer version and perhaps even try to find one to get replated (can anyone say Black Chrome?).
