Thank you for all the warm responses. I forgot to mention when I do brush lather I've been using a Beechwood Omega S-Brush and Fendrihan shaving mug. Also since this post I've impulse bought another razor, welcome to family Razorock Gamechanger .68 with UFO handle. It's never been a NEED for another razor as much as enjoyment of trying new razors. This is coming from a guy who's owned probably 20 cars I like to try new things and move on and enjoy as many things as possible.
