This might be the closest straight razor shave I've given myself! Pretty sure it is!Wednesday's shave was very good.

This is my Pipe Razor. Today I honed it on the finishing side of my Double Convex Arkansas 8x3 stone, perhaps 100 round trips (or less). If I'm remembering and searching correctly its edge was previous very very good (by my standards of several months ago). This razor was made by Geo. Wostenholm & Son in Sheffield, England, some time after 1892 by the England marking.
Anyway, the edge is really good. Can it be maxed out even more? Perhaps, but there's no rush. It's in the league with the Wade now. I'm not saying they're one another's equals, but they're close enough to compare side by side.

Good kit. Good shave.
Happy shaves to you,
