Show Me Some Edge Eye Candy!!!

Gents,

My Shavesmith razor arrived today, and the seller said it was shave ready. I had no doubt that it was ready to roll, but I have been finding that my little technique with the Zulu Grey and strop has really been polishing the edges, and leading to making them ridiculously sharp and silky smooth...despite having no real idea as to what I am doing!

To get this edge, I sprayed the ZG with water, and a drop of dish soap (I don’t have a DMT card to raise a slurry, and the slurry stone doesn’t work on this thing!). Then I did 100 laps on the ZG spraying water on the stone every 25 laps. Then I hit the Tony Miller Heirloom Strop for 75 laps.

This was the result...

That looks absolutely magnificent. Hope you have a wonderful shave!
 
Thank-you Sir! The shave was magnificent...I feel comfortable recommending Shavesmith razors based off of communication with the proprietor, and the incredible quality of the razor.

It was forged in 2016, and I am now the second owner. It’s not going anywhere any time soon!
