    The standout razor of this morning

    Simply a beautiful Hoffritz Barber's King so sweet on the hones, Chosera 1-5-10 the on to the Zulu Grey started with a light slurry, really brought out an excellent hazy finish by the time I was done
    Don't see to many of this but they sure give up a nice edge when I do

    Honed one of those last week only it was made by Wusthof. I honed it on 1k Chosera, 3k Super Stone, 5k Shapton Pro, 8k Shapton Pro, 10k Super stone, Blue-Green Escher. The shave was superb.

    The Chosera 1k for the last 2 nights try to get the last 4 razors bevels set. H.M.Christensen and a Torrey the artist. The artist was a tough mother and took forever. Haven't come across steel that hard in a while. Tonight 2 Bengall 5/8s both honed nice and easy.

    After all the bevels were set got the Bengall cast steel and honed on a La Grise coticule using dulicot. Been waiting for ages to hone it up and looking forward to tomorrow's shave to see how it goes.
    My wife calls me......... Can you just use Ed

    Another set of twin Tanifuji Silver Steels - like Mike, I found these razors will take and hold the finest of edges.

    Cheers, Steve

    Strange about memory...here is a pic of the scales. I remember them as pink and the Madman of Philly called them pink.

    Curious. Did you get them from Tarkus?

    Well Tom, I edited the above post after I looked in my archives for a picture of the Plumacher.
    Tarkus did the rescale. If he didn't do such an amazing job, I would want to rescale the little wedge in that cool fake tortoise...forget the name. Anyway...hey, did I get the pink scales from Tarkus, huh, did the rascal rescale the Plumacher so he could cannibalize the scales!

    I dunno, but I have 2 sets of G-10 pink scales which were 'box filler' from him. Strange coincidence? Nah!
