Which straight razor did you use today?

Use a straight. You know it makes sense.

Friodur 72-V (6¼")

Certainly no Dovo "Prima Klang" (Great Sound) as the ¼ hollow blade makes only a muffled sound when stropping and shaving, but what a shave!

An exceptional razor with an exceptional shave today.
Probably the best I had all month. :)

Friodur 17 ½

Nice shave, but not as nice as the 72-V yesterday.

Hart 6/8 - great shave, smooth and close. Hardly makes any noise at all as it competently goes about it's whisker cutting business.

5/8 French made Size-Gold
Harris Windsor
Morphed SOC, homemade handle

I'm going to mess with this knot one more time but it'll probably call for a rehandle job.

homemade leadwood handle, 30mm badger
Shave of the week so far, very nice. It's been awhile since I've used Mystic Water and I'd forgotten how good it is. Have a good one.

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!
