    Rick has it bang on. Short loft for face-lathering. It does help with working at triple-milled or other hard soaps, as well. I'm a big believer in face-lathering to get the hairs softened and lifted up. Otherwise, in my opinion, it's just a fun way to shave with nicer products. The benefits of wet-shaving start with proper beard prep, continue with properly working at your facial hair with your brush and soap, and using a slick and cushiony (and moisturizing) lather. From there, a proper razor of any type, and a great after-shave finish the deal.

    Looks nice! How many knives do I have to sell to get one?

    Almost enough to get me to try wet again. Any chance of getting Tom G onboard for another collaboration - bowl, soap, brush?

    My latest. There's still another coat to go, but I couldn't wait to show it off. This is my take on the Rooney Stubby 1.

    looks great Tom.
    im not a shorthandle lover thou.

    here is something fun for you to try maybe you seen/tried it already.

    Get a metal wire and use the friction to burn lines into the brush handle, pick a high speed on the lathe and just lay the wire ontop and wait til it gets hot and starts burning a grove..pretty easy thing yet cool looking
