Shave of the Day

Chiseled Face Zoologist Civit soap, Moon and Stars two band badger brush, Johan Engström 6/8 straight razor, Pitralon Polar aftershave.

Two passes, a workmanlike shave, not a nick.  Used this razor right out of the box, but I should have stropped it to get that ultimate edge.  

Engström died in 1915, and the factory closed in 1917, so the blade is no younger than that later date, and more probably from the late 1800's.   If I do my part taking care of it, the LT's kids will be able to use it decades from now.  I like that.
