Hi team, great shaves so far! Can’t wait to see the rest of this week’s hardware!
Today's shave was a bit of an experiment - went straight from sealed package to shave with this gorgeous NOS Economy Supply Company 44-20 No. 800 'Manganese Steel' razor (excuse the poor picture). This thing was popping hairs above skin level on my arm so I thought I might as well see if the decades-old edge was up to scratch shave wise. Well - she didn't disappoint - have just finished a shave that I would rate 8/10 edge wise, a little harsh, but astonishingly good considering this razor was happily cloistered in its own little world unmolested by time for god knows how long till I showed up ;-). Might just run it over my Swaty for next time.
Razor: Economy Supply Company 44-20 No. 800 'Manganese Steel'
Brush: Thater 24mm Olive wood (c'mon SRP 2-band!!)
Strop: SRD Premium I
ASB: Nivea Sensitive

Urinal cakes??? I've never heard Pinaud's Lilac Vegetal described quite like that. I think it is a holdover from the 19th century when it was quite popular as an aftershave because of its flowery fragrance.
I remember buying a bottle of it during the last century. It was used by my barber as a finish to haircuts and shaves. I found that I really didn't care for it. The fragrance was too sweet, too perfume-like, for my nose.
At any rate, if you want to dispose of it properly, I guess you could always put it up for sale in the SRP Classifieds. There are some members who find its fragrance appealing."Age is an issue of mind over matter. If you don't mind, it doesn't matter." Mark Twain

I may check out another option for it, one that still involves SRP!

I'd been growing my beard for quite some time, but I decided it would come off today.
A big job calls for a big razor, so I pulled out my 10/8 and took care of business. It was actually my first shave with her; only BKratchmer had previously had the honor.
I'm really impressed with the photo quality off my Droid, too.
