    Mr M - are all of these razors and brushes yours? If so, sick collection! If not, then what fun to use some many different ones.

    Ever consider doing a vid on how you hone & strop one of your razors? I'm curious to see how you do it. Your edges must be super fine if you shave so frequently. As I've said before, I can't straight shave more than every 3 days, 2 at the most, or my face get too raw. My edges seem pretty smooth to me and shave quite well, but there is a bit of inconsistency from one shave to the next. I know I have room for improvement.

    Magnus's edges are superb. I bought one of his BST razors, and it came with a fantastic JNat edge on it. I think there are some videos he has done of honing buried in here somewhere.

    mpukas - I read somewhere that to toughen your face you actually should shave MORE with a straight rather than less, as it helps your face adjust to the new regimen. I am nowhere near an experienced straight shaver, probably just around 100 shaves in, but the more often I shave, the better my face has handled subsequent shaves.

    Biggest rawness reducers for me to date: nice strop makes a big difference, face prep, keeping the angle shallow, focusing on a good with the grain pass, and finding the right soap. I tried creams and soaps, and finally dialed in on what works for me - natural ingredients, tons of tallow, and minimal perfumes, soap face lathering. Try Mikes Natural Soaps if you haven't - they are what got me over the rawness hump in conjunction with more experience. Also, I am STILL learning the best ways to hit my weird growth patterns on my trouble spots (next to mouth, and neck.) If raw, I would only aim for respectable shaves by giving a few passes with the grain. Once those irritation-free shaves start, it is easier to build on them with extra ATG por XTG passes as your face allows.

    Mpukas - Yes thay are all mine. or 99% lol . i do have one honing video where i show all steps (with magnification x200) from 1k up to 16k on syntetic stones then i finish on a Japanese Ozuku Asagi with dmt slurry that i dilute to water witch works on this stone but many jnats works diffrent most jnats you hone with the slurry all the way to finish with very little water adding or no water adding honing to almost dry stone. its from stone to stone.

    Skiajl - Thanks for the kind words. im happy straight shaving is going so well for you.

    Not a good shave. I'm still fairly new, but today I was a little too eager, ended up with a few nicks here and there. Still got a lot to learn...
