Which straight razor did you use today?

Use a straight. You know it makes sense.

Oscar, I mean this very sincerely, that homemade leadwood handle, in the size and proportions shown, is the best looking brush I have ever seen. I've seen a lot of beautiful brushes, and this is equal or superior. Period!
Thank you, that's very kind.

Decent shave this morning but the blade should have been better. A couple of passes on pasted strop could have made a big difference. Have a good one.

Today I finally got back into my sweet straight razors. Today's razor was the W&B faux tortoise barber's notch. I really wish I had time to post my SOTD photos as Oscar does, even though my photos aren't quite as appealing to the eye. :) Maybe one of these days. . .

6/8 Wacker Inox

The knot on this brush is a Semogue set in a slightly larger hole and lofted at 52mm. I seem to be reaching for it often even though I consider myself a boar fan.

I don't know if it qualifies as a straight razor, but for sure it's not a safety razor. I'm talking about the CJB shavette from Korea. Uses the Feather Pro/Kai Captain disposable blades. It was what I shaved with today. If I ever get into a knife fight, I'm bringing the CJB. :evil:
