    Yes, there are dangers in this hobby, no doubt about that!
    If you'll pardon me, I think I will keep the words of your significant other away from mine's ears, she will only be too happy to agree to that

    I look forward to both seeing your new acquistions as well as reading your take on their performance.
    Thanks again!
    Yes, I would not mention a word of this to your dearly beloved.
    Also, in the coming weeks I write extensively on the way Joris shaves.
    Stay well, my friend.

    Yes, Tyler, at first look the blade exposure looks scary. Think straight razor when shaving with the razor. Nice and easy. No pressure. Also, limit strokes over the same spot. In the first pass, the Joris removes about 89 to 90 percent of the stubble. Two passes and some minor cleanup are all you need. To introduce yourself to the open comb, though, I suggest the Merkur 25C. It is a mild open comb with a long handle. The 15C has the shorter handle. After some experience with the Merkur, you can move on to some of the New Model Gillette opens combs and then to the Joris.

    Obie,

    That's one beautiful, yet gnarly, looking razor you have there. It definitely looks like it demands both admiration and respect. Enjoy, my friend.

    LMAO Obie, I see now where you have "diverted" your funds from selling off your straights!
    I think you and Birnando are feeding each others RAD into a frenzy.
    "Breeding like rabbits" too funny, albeit probably accurate!

    Joe, my friend, I know exactly what you mean. Actually, I had most of the DE razors already. Many were stashed in the closet. There is still a bunch of vintage razors in the closet, including another Aristocrat and Fatboy. On the other hand, I think I bought one too many DE razors. I just can't resist beautiful things. Some, on the other hand, I bought for their shaving capabilities. For instance, the Weber, the one in the photo with the black shave head, is quite a good shaver. All the Edwin Jagger and Muhle razors are not only handsome, but they are also good shavers.

    I had eyed the Joris for at least a couple years. It's a gorgeous razor. Finally I broke down and bought one. It took me a few days to adjust to the shave, cutting my passes to two and some cleanup instead of the usual three. This is a formidable razor, and it does take getting used to, but once you find its sweet spot, it soars. By the way, I have two more coming. I can hear the dearly beloved now: "What, we've had two pregnant rabbits all along?" What can I say? I love the lady dearly.

    Nice razor. Theirs a good separation between the blade and the comb bar?

    Thank you. Yes, the blade exposure is quite pronounced. The razor is aggressive.

    Claiming your collection is meager is about like Obie saying the Joris is a mild razor!

    Ryan, my friend, indeed, the Joris demands admiration and respect. As I noted, the razor shaves much like a straight. It even produces the same delicious scraping sound as does the hollow ground. Pressure must be as light as a halfhearted promise. Maximum two strokes on the same spot or risk razor burn. It does wonders on the neck, although be careful coming in horizontally from the outside of the neck toward the chin. So, yes, the shave is challenging. I also find it intoxicating. This, of course, has forced me to reduce my regular DE collection. For instance, today I said goodbye to the Feather. And so on. Much as I dislike the Muhle R41 for being harsh and mean, I am hooked on the assertive majesty of Joris.
