    Today was the maiden outing for my restored Greaves. First time making scales and first time honing a wedge.

    Greaves, 7/8" full wedge, in bone
    Arko stick (still Arko August after all)
    Custom CRV in Silvertip

    Great shave. One where everything just came together. It just doesn't get any better.
  9. Scales look awesome. Great job Alan

    I was just going to ask whether you experienced a sense of satisfaction for having done such a good job of it.

    Happy shaves,

    I’m going with the JR this morning. I finally got around to using this razor as I had purchased it over two years ago. I took it out of the drawer cleaned it up and went to the Coticule. Well it did provide a lovely shave this morning and it will be back.
    Great Day Smooth Shaves
