No, they still perform great.Still haven't honed any of your razors after 40 shaves?
The one I've used the most is the Dovo Special, as it was my first, and some time ago I thought it needed to be honed, but after I discovered it just had to be stropped more than the other razors it performs really nice again
When they need a hone, I'll send them out, I don't have the skills yet to do it satisfactory myself.
The rice bowl was something I just picked when I got my first DE razor and some soap and had to get started, it seemed fine and I thought I could always pick up another bowl later. Well it is still in rotation because I really like the shape and weight of it - plus it looks quite nice in the bathroom too.I really like that rice bowl. Seems like the perfect shape for lathering and not hitting your brush on the side of the bowl.
Also, seeing all of your pictures is making my SRAD kick in something fierce!!!!
About the pictures, I know what you mean, I got hooked after watching the beautiful pictures in the SOTD thread
