    Jrabi, yes, I really like this razor. I'll probably get back to the rest of my rotation at some point...

    Bela, there's something familiar about that razor, LOL.

    And Grant - wow, nice razor.

    Dirty Bird Scuttle
    Custom Badger
    Castle Forbes Lavender

    Hone: 1K,3k,5k,8k,12K

    After reading Max's shave of the day today I wanted to try the Str8/DE shave as well. I honed up this Fily I picked up yesterday and then went 1st pass St8, 2nd pass DE, third pass Str8. I must say, it was a great shave, very smooth.
    Hockey this afternoon, GO DEVILS!!!

    I am suffering through a terrible head / chest cold, and am in rough shape, but thought I'd take some time for a nice Sunday shave.

    Prep - Hot shower
    Razor: Torrey 6/8 round tip - I think its a half hollow?
    Brush: Badger
    Cream: home-made Cedar and Lemon SC
    Post: Thayer's, Anthony's Gold Red Cedar AS, Nivea ASB
    EDT: L'Occitane Vetyver


    I will need to post some photos of this Torrey. It is very quiet - almost shaves like my W&B wedge - no toast scraping sound at all. It has no jimps and has some heft to it. For $12 its a pretty good razor.

    Ready to head off for a sunday afternoon walk with my wife, and enjoy some Vancouver sunshine.

    Enjoy the week gents.

    Awesome shaves from all today, Gents!

    I am always glad when this unusual Cattaraugus Green Lizard comes up in rotation. With a big, beefy tang and a 13/16 blade, I jokingly call it "For Lizard Barbers only" !
    Stropped on Neil Miller bridle leather on my Lipshaw Microtome strop, Musgo lime soap preshave with SRD Lime stirred by a Thater made for a fine, catfish-belly smooth shave!

    Everyone have a healthy and productive week to come! That's an Order!
