What's new

I may have found “the One”

On Friday the 17th, I celebrated a birthday of sorts. Not belly button, but a personal change that I can’t say I’m proud of, yet am particularly grateful for. I do allow myself to purchase some token of recognition. This year, that token was a new razor kit….

It was a little bit based on “specifications” (can’t ignore that I’m a scientist Mon-Fri), but probably more so on some artistic consideration and intuition that accompanies a little of the zen of shaving I’ve embraced. The selection:
1. Head: Timeless SS, 0.68, open comb, scalloped cap, 39.75 gm
2. Handle: Elite wildlife collection, pheasant feather at 110 mm, 51 gm
3. Brush: Elite Desert Ironwood handle with one of Bob’s 24 mm, high mountain white knots

I just finished taking it for a spin and it was better than I ever imagined. I had a sample of A&E Monte Carlo, which was a little thirsty in my exceedingly hard water. But man! I’m kind of speechless…It was like like it just glided effortlessly and intuitively around my face - with this wonderfully gentle purring of stubble being
caressed away. My plan several months ago was to develop a rotation of 5 or 6 kits depending on my mood, but now….I just don’t know…..
 
I always love hearing stories from folks who have found "The One" & I hope that you continue to get many great shaves from your new custom razor setup!

This statement right here, reflects how I felt, when I first shaved with my new Henson AL13 Medium razor, using a Wizamet blade. I know what that feels like, and its a wonderful feeling aint it? Congrats!!! :thumbup:
