    Lets share what straight we used for today's shave. If you could post a photo, tha would be great. We all love razor porn:). If you can't post a picture, that's okay too:)

    I'm a noob at straight shaving, but after a couple weeks; I'm definitely hooked. I've committed to using my Black Jack made by International Cutlery Co. a 5/8 spike tip, which has "bit" me on occasion:) A really nice shaver.

    I used this Boker today. It was a local find on kijiji. A nice older woman was selling her grandfather's razor that unfortunately had a cracked scale. A friend was able to supply me with a set of bone scales he had made which I made a lead wedge for and pinned up. True to all vintage Bokers I have used it honed up well and gives a fine shave. I think it is at least a 6/8 and hollow ground but not extremely so.

    Robert Kelly "Dispatch Razor" 7/8
    German made for Robert Kelly somewhere in the very early 1900s, possibly by P.L. Schmidt from Elberfeld/Solingen. Dispatch it says, dispatch it does: with a quiet, beautiful noise all hair is removed in a manner that brings a big smile to the face. Terrific stuff.

    Challenge Cutlery out of Bridgeport Connecticut. A really nice heavy American razor from around 1910-1920's. A smooth shaver she is.

    Another super close with the Japanese Okina. This one always gives a fabulous shave, and looks good doing it:).
