Gents,

A few years ago I started shaving with a straight razor, and found it to be therapeutic and wonderful!  Using one allowed me to simply filter everything else out, and just focus on the absolute perfection of one thing in one moment of time.

Over the last year and a half, I have been using safety razors more than anything.  However, I decided to get back into straights.

I purchased a MK31 from Jamie Mahoney of Wales, and these were his pictures of the razor.  It looks even better in person if you can believe it...a masterpiece of fit, finish, and function.  I figured I would use Jamie’s original pictures, because my cell phone can’t do it justice!  (I hope you don’t mind Jamie!)

My wife was watching tennis, and I said... “I am going to shave!”  Well, I just got completely lost in the shave, and loved it!  What a treat after a LONG week, and I felt like a million bucks afterwards!

Thanks Jamie!

Don’t think safety razors will ever beat the feel of using a straight. The whole process takes a little longer but way more satisfying imho. That is a sweet razor btw.
