    Had my first shave with my new straight razor today.

    Thread Starter: Fishdog72

    I had some extra money so I decided to take the plunge and buy a straight razor. After looking around the web and here, I decided on a Dovo 5/8 Silver Steel with ebony scales. I included pictures of it. While it doesn't look as nice as some of the amazing custom ones I've seen on B&B, I think it...

    Strop Dragging My Heart

    Honing help - please!
