    Pepys and cie London made (on y parle de WOOTZ)

    It is rare because authentically made out of Wootz ​​by a great scientist, also son of a London Cutler, and culter himself, who has conducted research on Wootz steel in parallel with Stoddart and the famous Faraday.

    For "safety" I also had two other English razors restaured and honed the very same day. A A. Jordan Sheffield "the AAAI brooklyn " ( probably a razor made ​​for the brooklyn american association of artists and Interprets founded in 1917 ) and a microtome William Ragg Sheffield, honed as a Kamisori ( 7 ratio on the flat / 1 on the hollow)

    Results : with the Peyps : I do not feel the blade, his he cutting, am I asking to myself ? Oh yes, incredible softness while being very efficient. It reminds me a 1820 Rodgers that left me the same impression of sweet caress. Delightfull !

    I made two passes with him, and for the last I suspected that this feeling is not only due the quality of the razor, but to a meticullousand very good preparation ( hot shower and facial massage) so I picked up the tow others more "hard" , but equally effective

    Time for the pictures ( the soap is the old school "gentlemen and officers" from Trumper, shaving brush made ​​by Shengouille from the CCC, Cologne Roger Gallé from the original recipe of Farella )

    I'm very happy as you can imagine !
    Nice pictures. The razors look great and an interesting story. I also like the brush you used, but I love that old scuttle. I would like to find one like that.

    Shaving with facial hair is like a golfcourse. It's a challenge of rough and fairways. You are the skilled greenskeeper of your face?

    May this week bring you all a positive change of pace.

    PENNY'S razor, Palmolive cream, silvertip brush, Royall Vetiver.

    The Day? A partly sunny and mild 30ºF / -1ºC. The Shave? A quickie and a good one at that! The European Palmolive makes up a smooth lather that has a decent amount of glide. The razor is one of the myriads of razors made with just a name for sale wherever that name might catch on. Be that as it may, this little razor is of good hard steel. The splash is herbal and mild.
    " charlie48horlogerie" I love the scuttle...been beat out on the 'bay twice for one like it!

    Did 40-50 passes on the Zulu before stropping. Got a great, buttery edge and a comfortable shave. Drew blood for the first time in ages, though, after wandering up to an unstretched portion of the cheek.

    Have a great week everyone.
