Which straight razor did you use today?

Use a straight. You know it makes sense.

Nice one pass shave this morning. I missed the boat with this brush, it's too floppy for my liking. Have a good one.

Floppy or knot, it's a good-looking brush. Is that an Omega or a Semogue knot? I like the big Pro Omegas and the Semogue 2000, although I find something to like in most every boar I try.

It's a Zenith 26 x 57 IIRC, it was a better in it's original form than it is now. Sometimes you swing and miss but I should have seen it coming. I made 4 brush handles with a 4-20 theme (in my mind only ). I was making s few a handles just prior to a trip to Denver to deliver some furniture to my son and made a couple after I got back and it was over the 4-20 weekend.The last 2 are the ones pictured in the above posts.

Yes, I believe the one I have is drilled with 63/64 drill bit and I set the knot to 50mm. I do have another mixed knot that I'm going to set soon that will be set in a 26mm hole and will set that around 53-55mm but I'll use silicone so I can remove it if I don't like it.

Excellent shave this morning. I guess this is about as fancy as it needs to get (for me) for a great shave. Have a good one.

Nice setup, Oscar. And thanks for the brush info. I wound up ordering a couple of Big Bruce brushes with the 26mm Plissoft knots. Going to steam them out and hope my 24mm mixed knots from Maggard's and APShaveCo fit. If not, it's an inexpensive experiment.

Nice one pass shave today. Interesting knot. It's very soft and worked well for face lathering. I look forward to using this brush again.
