I'm a proud owner of polished Blackbird for couple of year. May be my most beloved razor in my collection. Friend loan me his Nodashi.
I'm amazed. Different feel but amazing shaver. May be better than Blackbird.
Now I'm confused. How it's possible.
Somebody experienced the same?
Out of curiosity I bough a vintage Chinese razor called a Flying Eagle with the original case.
Wow! What a surprise shave. Very smooth and effective. In R41 territory if not better.
One of the best shaves I have, and it is only the first one.
The price is radicilous, about $10.
I feel it's a steal.
Friend of mine provide me with couple of samples of soap company I never heard about it -Purely Skinful.
There is a beef, bear and deer tallow soaps.
Wow. All you need in the soap is here. Excellent cushion, glide and slickness. Amazing post shave feel.
I don't speak about the flagrance because...
Pereira orange and cinnamon soap with activated carbon.
It looks similar to SV Dolomiti. Very hard puck in deep grey colour.
When you start to leather it it became brighter but the light grey colour remains.
Very easy to leather and the leather is very slick and protective. Very good glide and...

We even have our own soap maker. Her name is Hila. You can find her on Etsy.
Today we have a meeting and she makes special soap for this event and named after me.
It's vegan all...
I used this brush for two weeks now. I'm mostly boar brush guy and only have two badger till now. New Forest brush that was too floppy for me and Simpson Duke in best that is very fine brush. The Yaqi HMW is not dense like the Simpson but not very far behind. It blooms to a huge size and while...
Yesterday I received my Yaqi High Mountain White brush. In the package was includes a razor head. First look it seems like 89 clone and I almost put it aside.
Today I decided to give it a try.
Wow. It's not 89 clone. Very smooth but so efficient. One of the best shaves i have.
Some of the...
After a week with my new Gibbs Adjustable I' in love.
I have a wast collection of both vintage and modern razors, from cheap to expensive.
For me Gibbs combines the efficiency of theBlackbird with a smoothness of the Rockwell.
What a little gem.
I love aggressive razors with a lot of blade feel but I can appreciate a smooth efficient shaver as well.
After long time hunting I bought one from a member of english forum in mint condition with the original case and blades.
Yes you need to modify the blade but it only takes 5 seconds.
Month or two ago I got a nice MMOC. It is my first GEM razor. Loaded it with GEM coated blade and prepared to shave. I heard a lot how nice this razor and what a good shaves you can get.
Starting to shave and stoped. Feels very harsh on the face. Tried again, same feeling. Put it aside and...
Friend who visited Austria bring me a gift. A Benediktiner Seifenmanufaktur shave soap. I don't know much about it because their site is in German.
What a performer. Ten swirls with the brush and you got sick, dense and very cushioned leather.
What a surprise.
I recently got a MMOC with Personna coated blade. First shave was wonderful,
smooth and comfortable. Since the first shave I can't recreate that sensation.
The shave is harsh and uncomfortable. I change to a new blade but the result is the same. No doubt the shave is good and I got BBS but the...
Got three shaves with this razor and this what I think about it.
First it is a beautiful razor. Mate black color. Heavy, from what I understand it's a Zamak head on brass handle.
It looks like Merkur 37C but shaves much more aggressive but remains smooth. Very efficient razor indeed.
Not a bad...
