Simple pleasures. All the elements combined to deliver a superb BBS result, so good my wife was moved to award the finish 9.75, the best so far. I'll get a 10/10 from her yet!

Happy Valentines Day.

I thought it was time to bring out this rather neglected Razor. I love the looks and feel of the Razor, but sadly I find it to be a bit too mild for me. I did today improve things a bit by varying the cutting angle especially around the neck, and am pleased that the overall finish quality was better than anticipated.

The brush is not floppy despite its very high loft, but it definitely has less backbone and softer hair tips than my other Finests. The Gillette head is quite light in weight, which makes it a very good match for the titanium Wolfman handle.
