It’ll be one year of shaving next week. After waves of irritation battles, I FINALLY understand razor and blade pairing!

Recently moved into a larger house with my first master bathroom and very own sink. The SWMBO is even letting me hang my razor and brush pictures by the shower! It feels nice to have the collection displayed on one shelf. Now it feels like home. Pick yer poison!
Wow @THall what an explanation! That’s why I keep alum block at the sink. Even the best knurling is slippery after wiping good lather from your hand. One swipe on the block and my hands are as sticky as Adam Thielen’s.

Thater 24mm 2-band silvertip
Bargained my first 3-band silvertip from auction site. Unbelievably soft tips, even compared to my 2-band Thater. This thing is way bigger than expected, but I love the geometry of the huge handle. Now I have a trendy 28-30mm knot. Splayed incredibly after a soak and test lather. Bottom coin...
I’m a boar and silvertip guy, but I own one Yaqi tuxedo for traveling. It’s supposed to have a 53mm loft but I think the knot was glued a few mm short. Takes a little extra effort to splay but super soft with decent backbone. Been able to lather any soap effortlessly.
