I originally bought this razor because it reminded me of my boyhood infatuation with pocket knives. Who hasn't heard of, and probably owned, a Barlow Knife? It's turned out to be one of my best shavers. Good Old James was quite the craftsman.

Today’s shave was 8/10, which for me means one of my best ever! I haven’t strictly counted my SR shaves, but I started my SR journey in mid-October and sometime in the past week or two I should have passed the 100 shave mark. The brush made a great lather such that I had leftovers after the 3rd pass, the soap was slick on my face, and the SR removed whiskers without leaving my face feeling raw. I even pulled off a half-decent execution of a Fool’s Pass! I have not quite reached the level of Zen that others talk about, but I think I can see it from where I am now.

Oh and since I have 3 wedges among my ~20 SRs, I am declaring this another Wedge Wednesday! :)
