2nd day of COVID quarantine. this razor is a puzzler and kinda ticks/honks me off. mass produced American blade. No exaggeration, I would put this specific razors blade and edge up against any of the fine razors in my stable.......and that's saying a lot.

be well all. hanging on........ and hanging in there with Faith.

Damn, so sorry to hear that. Hang in there and get well soon, @camoloc in my prayers.
I cheated again today fellas...rhodium plated 1946-47 Gillette Aristocrat loaded with a vintage Wilkinson Light Brigade blade. I used Haslinger coconut (tallow), and it was a beautiful shave! The discontinued Haslinger (tallow) is ridiculously creamy and slick! Fun to mix things up!

Get well soon Camo!

thank you Fred.

daughter/stepdaughter who lives in spare bedroom has it. although I think wife and I have it too. fighting chills/fever for multiple days has to be more than vaccine side effects. regardless........Im at home for less than fourteen days now. test results soon.

the dogs are not mad about this.

nice comfy razor. another blade that does the work without you knowing it. seller from CZ had a nice Charnley Forest edge on it. I have no doubt that it was more than shave ready.........but had to visit the Jnat.

be well all.
