    There should be a GD competition to see who can get the most shaves out of a GD razor with leather and linen only. Can get the edge to shave ready however you like

    COunt me out. I go 50 laps on .1u diamond balsa after every shave. I want to always have the best possible edge. Not interested in seeing how bad I can stand it. Very interested in seeing the results, though.

    I'm curious too, as I recently started heavily modding some GDs that I bought like a decade ago, then forgot about lol
    Haven't gotten to the point of honing on any of them yet though

    But... less a competition of how long you can go, and more just a data compilation of how many shaves before you feel it needs touching up (and how that compares for you vs other razors, if you normally keep track of that sort of thing).
    I think that would be more practically useful info to have.

    And here I thought that was Mel Gibson. Now I'm disappointed.

    By the way, I always shave with just my right hand too. It's how I learned and I'm sticking with it.

    I agree. I was using both hands on day one, bit awkward to start with but now if I broke my left arm I just wouldn't be able to shave.

    I did try to shave with just my right arm a few months ago for the fun of it but had to stop quite quickly because I could tell that I was going to get pink lather if I continued.

    Just a BTW here. If the scales are flat cutouts of Acrylic, it is probably a P81, AKA "1996". Scales are available in red or white, and also according to my girl at the factory, also an off yellow but I haven't seen one of them yet. IMHO the P81 is the most practical of all of the GD models. Easiest to hone. Slightly tighter bevel angle. For the price point, a reasonable level of fit and finish. Grinding, instead of horrible, is merely "not so great". Easiest one to make shave ready by far and my favorite model. But even the 66 has improved a bit from the bad old days, when they were far worse and actually needed surgery to make into efficient shavers. If you get a new 66 with the laser etching instead of crude stamping on the tang, you are getting the third generation, even better, but not as good as the P81. Your efforts to improve your P81 will not be wasted.
