    Hehe, it's not a razor holder, it's a brush holder that served it's purpose for the photo
    It's this set: Name:  34120404212894.jpg

    That would be really cool...one razor stand for R41+ R89
    We'll see, stay tuned.
    Yeah, but what if you have only one? what we need is a single stand that clips onto a brother stand; making two stands. That way, if we have one DE it balances nicely, and then when we get the second (as we invariably will) it still balances nicely.

    Good morning friends!

    Shave prep: Face wash
    Brush: Frank Shaving finest badger
    Soap: Eveline Men Line Classic Shaving Cream
    Scuttle: Robert Becker large
    Razor: Rostek C70 CCCP 9/16 smiling hollow ground round point
    Strop: nun2sharp's hanging leather strop
    After Shave Splash: Vetiver splash
    Notes: I have been looking forward to shaving with this razor for some time, it is my first russian make. Honed up on Chosera 1k, naniwa SS progression and finished on schwedenstein, followed by a thorough stropping. Crispy sharp and comfortable edge, but quickly becomes harsh and biting if you slip up your angles. I did not, so it behaved nicely in my hands, just a little more sting from the AS splash. The suds were adequate, nothing fancy. I did feel a little dry after my shave so had to bring out the moisturizer.

    Razor – King Midas – Shoulder less
    Brush – Simpson Chubby#2
    Soap – Gada
    AST - ALUM
    AS – Stephan Bay Rum

    Went with a hot towel wrap, lather, another hot towel wrap, lather and shave. The Gadda da Vida shave cream is most excellent. It lathers great in my scuttle and has great glide. Smells good too. I went on line and nabbed some vintage Bay Rum from the 60s. It must have aged like fine wine,. Have a great week gentlemen.
