First true straight purchase.Bought it for a great price from a b&b member. Can't wait to put it to good use.

I have a poor man strop kit also coming from Larry at Whipped Dog.

I second that. You don't really need coffee (well, a second cup) after a straight razor shave.

Well I've shaved with it about 3 times so far. Definitely getting better with each shave but there's still quite the curve. More forgiving than the shavette for sure!
I've already nicked the toe from rinsing/shaking without a towel down. Lesson learned. Luckily I have an experienced honer from srp nearby that fixed it up.

I keep looking at all the beautiful straights and I'm going to want to get back in to it again. I must resist.
