What straight did you use today? Now with PICTURES

6/8 Kolibri Hummingbird Straight

Had a very close a fairly comfortable shave with this European Straight.I am gone to refresh the edge a little.My against the grain pass had to much resistance for my liking. Not sure of Country of origin. If I had to guess Austria or Germany. rps20191021_171135_618(1).jpg


And I got a new prop to use today seeing Halloween is just around the corner....

The Living Dead Strikes
Red Imp 133 5/8th Morris Germany
RazoRock Stallion
Yaqi Purple Haze Mew Brown Synthetic
Blue Stratos EDT

First time using this Red Imp and its taken a wicked edge, off an Ozaki Asagi Jnat 2 pass and a BBS well happy.
This was a first use of the yaqi purple haze synthetic, and I dont like the knot so might pull it and put a 2 band badger in its place...

Sunday morning shave with Ali's Blade Chopper 65, 8/8. I'm also using a new soap from Murphy & McNeil in collaboration with Black Mountain Shaving. It contains bear tallow, in addition to beef tallow, duck fat, goat milk, and a bunch of butters. It doesn't smell like bear and performs very well.
