Hi Gents,
Back to Europe after 2 weeks in New England ....without straights and almost no shave.
Had the opportunity to enjoy some time with my friend Alfredo Aka Doc226! Great time, great man and great friend.

One of the most valuable things this venerable forum engendered, is the opportunity to enjoy new and solid (though remote) friendships.

That said and since I had to shave a carpet (Doc’s cit.) I had to use a 9/8 WB.

Mango, I concur wholeheartedly and though I haven’t met Alfredo personally I too think he is a great guy.

I think you could shave down a forest with that beautiful W&B, Antoine. Did Alfredo make the gorgeous scales?

After a few days I put the Heljestrand no.16 back into the cabinet and grabbed this Erik Anton Berg instead. Straight razors only was a minor part of Berg's production, that mostly consisted of high quality special tools for craftsmen. However no matter what they made they always strived for perfection.

He surely is
^^^ + 1,000 pts given our peculiar choice of hobby
Agreed. Special hobby for gentlemen!

not this time actually. I had these scales made by an artisan in Vietnam. They combine water buffalo horn and MOP . Alfredo pinned the razors.
Great condition and a great razor. Thank you for sharing.

And a great razor too... as always.
tks Arne !
