I was digging around looking for a plated Shovelhead when I opened a box that had a nice plated 1912 that somehow was put away with a Jr. bar handle. After examining it I realized it was a Damsskeene open comb that had somehow evaded the rotation for some time. It was like having a brand new razor to try out.
I hated to be reunited with my Damaskeene by throwing a blade that already had nine shaves on it, but not to worry, it was a perfectly smooth comfortable shave. I usually toss my GEM PTFE blades after ten shaves whether they need it or not, but decide the shave was so “uneventful” that I’d keep it around for number 11.
Cognac & Cuban Cigars…mmmmmmmmmmm…one of the finest tobacco scents out there!
This is the tallow, triple milled version. There is also a standard vegan version.
