Use a straight. You know it makes sense.

Great shave this morning. I think I'll give this brush a little more loft before I use it again. Have a good one.

Today's straight razor of choice was the SSA - Eskelstuna 6/8. I believe it's a half hollow from Sweden. See the photo in the following post. It's the black handle razor.

This morning's razor was the Rugby, silver steel. It's old and gray like me, and it takes and holds a great edge. Seems to be a full hollow grind.
