Have some great shaves! Stay & think safe in these times!



This morning’s shave featured the A. Witte Copperhead 6/8 and the Ronson Safety Razor. This particular NOS straight razor arrived six months ago with a note in the accompanying coffin box, “Honed by Henrey 1939”. There still remained a very respectable 81 yr old bevel which I refined. Since then, it, like all of my straights, was retouched on my new 12k Naniwa Super Stone with a final polish on the jasper stone. I really enjoy shaving with this vintage Solingen razor. The Alpha Shaving T-400 Tribute with its 26mm Boar ferrule generated the lovely, slick, thin mug lather that always makes for a great mug shave. Straight shaving teaches one patience, skin stretching and lightness of touch. Those same qualities carry over into safety razor shaves as well. This little Ronson is a head-heavy, deceptively efficient shaver with its Schick B-20 Proline Injector blade loaded, and one of my top 5 head shavers. Both razors delivered a refreshing, cool, clean, velveteen smooth shave.

Love my Schöne. It's a Fatip with QC.
Yes, I'm quite pleased with Schöne. I installed a stainless steel core in the handle and feels way better. I don't have a Fatip, but for all I understood, the base plate is different. Different number and thickness of teeth. Like the difference between open comb and jaws, at Razorock.
