Which straight razor did you use today?

Use a straight. You know it makes sense.

6/8 Gong
Tabac SS
homemade brush, 30mm knot
I added a couple of badgers this week. This is going to be a good one if no problems develop with the knot.

Yep! Bone scales. I also have a Frederick Reynolds wedge in bone and a hollow ground W&B in bone. There is a more nostalgic feeling with bone that there is with anything else........

Geneva Cutlery Pyramid 7
Harris Windsor SS
homemade brush
I had a thing about Genco/Geneva Cutlery razors, in particular Pyramid 7's . I went crazy and sold most of them but I still have 2-3 Pyramid 7's. I always end up regretting selling any razors. I think I'll rehandle this knot in the near future.

Filarmonica 14. I touched up the edge tonight with a Naniwa 12000 followed by the Escher, Flex Cut Gold, then CroX on balsa, finished on a couple of strops. Not a bad shave, and I'm sure it'll get smoother after a couple more. I love this big razor.
