You have very good taste in soap and razors @RussellR5555 !

Tanifuji MaxFli 5000 stainless, soap was Dovo-Merkur Lavender lathered with a Keyhole 4 and a splash of SMN lavanda finished up.

This is the same soap that Italian Barber used to sell rebranded as ‘King Lois Lavender’, and those of you that have trouble lathering MWF would like it I think, it’s a lanolin-containing soap that lathers easily and is Italian made.

It’s time for a frameback, so today is an Engstrom in ivory with an unusual end cap. Cream and AS was I Coloniali Rhubarb.

Please don’t think I’m being purposely offensive but this razor appears to be a contradiction. I’ve always thought Frameback razors were utilitarian - so to see one in ivory scales seems strange. However, Steve, having seen just parts of your collection, it would not surprise me if you own lots of similar examples.

Hello Rob,

Ivory framebacks of that period were fairly common, 7-day frameback sets in ivory can be had at a reasonable price compared to the normal hollow ground razors.

Here’s a nice E. A. Berg.
