I just finished another restore. This one is a black and yellow Ever-ready 925. I put in a whipped dog knot 30mm x 65mm. I couldn't decide on the knot depth so I went with 51mm. I face-lathered it a few times and then finally used it this morning. I went with GFT coconut cream with a dash of Proraso for the maiden voyage. It lathered very well to say the least.
