I'm afraid it will get boring for a long time to come as I don't see any reason to use any razor other than the last one I showed. Eventually curiosity and adventure will make me try some others, but right now I have my Grail Razor.

This morning I used the freshly sharpened Hart 6/8 razor. I do like the way it feels in the hand and on the face. This is because it's a quarter hollow. Doesn't make any sound. Nice razor.

Sorry. I'm distracted by that brush handle. Love the shape. Very nice.
