@Puma - nice brush and handle.  Tempted at least one other person on TSN.

Thanks. Brad should keep these acrylics around if he can. I haven't used it yet, but the knot feels really dense but with nice fine hair. Should be a winner.

Looking forward to your thoughts, John. 

The soap easily made excellent lather, but it had the same prominent underlying clay scent that I remembered and don't really like.  It was quite slick, but not quite as thick and rich as I prefer.  I will add Coate's sandalwood cream to it next time, which I hope will improve the fragrance.

Third brush this month. I might have a problem. The white part of this handle is real Jasper, a stone known for its dark red and black vein-like features. The knot is Elite's Manchurian White.[Image: 948n5m7.jpg][Image: DDQLvKL.jpg]

If my count is right, I would say 459 packs. That would make 2295 blades if they are 5 blades per packs!

Assuming you use one blade per shave and you shave every day, it is a 6.3 years stash of blades!

So far I’ve only tried the r41, twice with 3-4 days growth each time and using a Personna Blue blade. It’s not as scary as I thought it would be. I’ve had no cuts or weepers and little feedback from the alum block. I really thought this razor would be the least forgiving or the one I’d have to be the most careful with, out of the ones I have, but so far I’m pleasantly surprised. I’m not sure how it’ll go with one day’s growth but I’m eager to give it a try.

That’s beautiful, and I imagine you could get 3-5 wonderful shaves with each blade...some guys probably get 10+! That’s quite a few more shaves than 6.3 years worth!
