Following the recent shave with "Sunday" from the WWII-era NOS 7-day set, I spent most of Monday refining all the blades and edges. I'd now rate the set pretty much 'shave-ready' and today took a ride with the Tuesday blade, which did excellent.
RAZOR: Comoy's of London 6/8"
CREAM: Nobble Otter - Barrbarr
BRUSH: Maggards Best Badger knot
STROP: Dovo hanging leather
AFTERSHAVE: Paco Rabane
Literally just finished the shave using NO Barrbarr (thanks Wilkshire13 for the sample). It was soft and squished to the bottom of the bowl, added a little water and got a good lather. It was slick and cushioning and gave a great shave. To me it smells sweet and a bit like ginger bread. Quite nice.

Round 2 with the orihi kamisori, The Yama-Dai (top) is now honed and in good order, and was ‘butterknife’ smooth. The tapered one was good, but noticeably not as smooth as the other two - it’s fighting me a little. Always a problem child in the lot with straights! So back to the hones once again, but the bevel is good so there will not be much wear, just a refinish. Not that there would be a lot anyway, these razors are of super hard steel.
Soap was I Coloniali Mango Oil and the balm IC Rhubarb. A Keyhole 3 did the lathering. Super nice shave, powdered BBS.
Latest find.It was a little rusty and dull..
But now it’s my favorite razor...I don’t know much about this brand..But I really like the feel/size..It took a crazy edge.The spine has very little hone wear..I did a three pass shave this morning..(usually just a two pass)but I just felt like it today
