What can I say? It’s day five of what turned into another face and dome two pass, irritation-free BBS. This is the grail razor for me! All I can say is the LaResche family knew their business! Maybe it’s my continued focus on MWF? Whatever it is; I’ll be sticking with this divine shaving tool until first blood or boredom, whichever comes first, and given how well the shaves are going, I suspect it will be boredom.

Good lookin' brush. Is it appreciably heavier than similar size brushes?
