Gentlemen,

I like pretty things. In the shaving world, sometimes I can't help but pair pretty things. In this case, here is a pairing of two Muhle razors with a Thater two-band, on the left, and a Plisson synthetic, on the right. Both combinations add immeasurable joy to my morning shave.

Do you also enjoy sweet pairings? Perhaps you can share a photo.

Beautiful. I don't have any such pairings, but I really like yours. Especially that coppery handle paired with the Plisson.

Really nice looking sets!  I also like your wooden stands in the background!  Unfortunately my wife is on my case about the space I'm taking with my shave den, so until we move I have to limit what I can display!

Shane,
Thank you for the kind words. I would love to fashion a sweet pairing of your razor with a brush. I'm impressed with the looks of the razor.

Rod,
I'm lucky. The dearly beloved gave me the space all my own. The wooden racks hold 12 straight razors, or safety razors, each. This summer, my wife plans to stain the racks in mahogany.

Apologies for the late response...
This is my most celebrated pairing in wet shaving, LABBS-1 razor, UFO Titan Fine L paired with Iridium Super blade.... Having this combo, throw any brush/soap combo at me and I am SOLID. Smoothest razor I've ever shaved with. Believe the secret is in the flat blade bed. John really hit a home run with that one!

Thank you Sir! It's certainly a unique setup that I don't get tired of... Maybe I'll update with a brush later
