    Oh, you are still at it Magnus.
    My apologies, I kinda forgot about this thread.
    I'll put up a few more shaves in the coming days;)
    Although your photographic skills shames us normal point and shoot idiots!
     

  2. Can't wait to see what you show next. I know you have something on the way to from SRD. :)

    Well so much for saving the Tignanello... I keep trying but im on my third now :fp

    By the way. if you haven't tried the Amarone Masi Nectar Costasera 2009 you really should. I haf to get it from Norway everytime i want it. easier to find there. But damn that bottle is worth it.

    Did an early shave before hitting the golf course today. The razor is a 8/8 Robert Williams custom. Scales in MOP. The brush is a Plisson pure mountain white, the finest brushes out there imo.
    Xpec sc is easily top 3 of all I've ever tried.
    The cologne was Bond no 9, Chez Bond. Love it!

  4. Very nice setup Birnando. Don't you find the MOP scales abit heavy thou?

    No, not on this one. The razor being a 8/8 quarter hollow, it actually needs some weight to balance it

    As mentioned by Magnus, I have been awaiting a new custom razor.
    This little thing arrived today, and I decided to give it a go immediately.
    The razor was made by the Admin over at straightrazorplace.com, Bruno Van Dooren from Belgium.

    Measuring in at a full inch wide and with a half hollow grind it is a solid piece of shaving gear;)
    His prices are simply put remarkably low, I have customs costing 10 times what I paid for this.
    The shave with it did in no way reflect that at all.
    A stellar shaver!

  7. I like the point! and the scales looks very cool! i been eyeballing his work for a while now and must say he is doing some great looking razors. is he selling thruw SRD only or take custom orders?

    I believe he does both.
    One can also buy them as unfinished razors.
    Meaning they will need polishing, honing and scales.
     
  9. Thanks! ill haf to look that up!

    Had a stellar shave today.
    This razor is very special to me as it was the very first Filarmonica #14 I ever got.
    This particular one is a Especial para barbas duras.

    With some Amouage Epic Man cologne, Boellis Panama 1924 soap and a perfect Th├Ąter brush the half hour in the shave-cave just had to be pure bliss:)
