Mike's Hungarian Lavender + Flo´d Vigoroso
Also, "результат" refers to the score of a game, not a "score" of a razor.
BBX guardless base plate, inverted to accommodate the divots on the ATT head.
Used it for tonight's shave -- this may be the most awesome devette ever!
I can attest that a bronze handle works very nicely with an ATT head -- in this case, the UFO Goliath in red bronze. Can't wait to see an all-bronze ATT!
Feathers are definitely better on the second and third shaves. Personna blue labels (Labs and Med Preps) are good from the get-go, in my experience. YMMV, of course.
B&B Essential Badger.
Yeah, it's a great razor, and works nicely with modern blades. If I were you, I'd put a long-comb NEW and a Fatip on my list of razors to try. The R41 is an excellent razor, but my taste in materials...
Point taken. :laugh:
Devette with magnets to eliminate blade chatter -- not that blade chatter was ever an issue for me, but I thought I'd give it a try. These small "super magnets", from Home Depot, worked like a charm...
Ball-end Old Type + BBX base plate = One Great Devette! :thumbup:
I have a special affection for this razor. It was a goner that I managed to restore to life. Now it has a new lease on life as a...
Weber Bulldog. Here's another view (both heads are Fatips):
The Maggard MR8 (center in photo, on the R41) is longer and heavier, but not as pretty as the Matador.
Omega '49 for every day, B&B Essential Boar for travel. End of story.
EJ DE87, going on five years ago.
+1. None better, IMO.
Sweet Tooth, by Ian McEwan
A definite +1. :thumbup:
ATT H2 with Matador S5:
As one who uses the Omega 10049 as his daily driver, I have this idea that the next B&B Essential Boar might be '49-sized: same hefty acrylic handle, same backbone-y boar knot, only in generous '49...
Glad to see that this passaround still has legs. I started devette shaving in January and am still going strong -- in fact, it's the only type of razor I use now. I experienced a good bit of...
Sacks's op-ed pieces for the NY Times are gems. The last four, a series of valedictory essays written after he received his diagnosis of terminal cancer, are sure to be cited as classics of the...
Consider yourself lucky. I need to shave in 3 or 4 directions to get my neck clean. Based on your great first outing, you'll be getting outstanding results before long.
Welcome to the fold!...
Yup, I, too, write very few checks. But when I do, the ink has a bulletproof element courtesy of N. Tardiff -- currently, a mix of 54th Mass. and Blue Manhattan.
Interesting. Will give this a try tomorrow morning.
Update: First-class shave with a devette + Indian Green. It was smooth and comfortable, which I attribute mainly to the excellence of the blade....
+1. I'm taking the B&B Essential Boar on the road for a couple of days, but when I'm home it's the '49 without fail.
They're on the 'Bay.
Hmm, that doesn't look like a very efficient shave -- lots of kinetic energy wasted in blade chatter. Call me old-fashioned (please!), but I think I'll stick with a "conventional" devette. :rolleyes5
Only a matter of time before someone tries this, right? Or has someone already tried it? I would, but I don't have the right screw...
Variation on the hex nut theme: BBXB top cap + Weber Bulldog handle (Cerakote Black)
+1. Fatip is amazingly smooth for an aggressive razor. At the risk of repeating myself ad nauseum, do yourself a favor and get a better handle for it. Sadly, UFO handles are no longer in production,...
I have H1 and H2 and love them both. I'm betting you won't be disappointed.
For me it's much like the steep angle pictured here, something like a 60 to 75 degree angle by your reckoning.
+1. Plus a million, in fact.
@Tony_M: I gave up on the BBXB (one-sided devette) because of the bad blade positioning -- not enough blade exposure on the devette side. I guess there's a reason...
A 5/16" stainless hex nut, instead of a stack of washers, for the base plate. Works very well.
Tip: With either washers or hex nut, to avoid a slight deformation of the blade, tighten the handle...
What a great start! Welcome to B&B. :badger:
Welcome to B&B! :badger:
Yes, indeed. My only objection to the ATT devette as I configured it is an aesthetic one: a pile of washers is an eyesore when juxtaposed with the hand-turned elegance that is the ATT. Oh, for a...
