Like an SR..WTG Passes at 1st..I Don't Bother Saying Anymore Cause Folks Ignore it Anyway..The Power of the Ego..The Ego is Biggest Barrier to Shaving with SRs & Hollow Ground Blade SEs..:D:D

Haha you know I don't ignore it! I try and follow advice to the letter, it's from people who know far more about this business than I currently do or probably ever will :)

Hi Billy
I have just been reading right through this thread and one thing stands out to me is that you keep comparing your really good shaves to your shaves with an injector !
I have shaved with many different razors over the years including straights and have been most impressed with shaves achieved with an old Damaskeen followed closely by an injector !
I know that you are always experimenting and I applaud you for that and :
My question is " have you had the very best consistently dolphin smooth shave with the injectors ? "

Yes..Of Course..But..I Just Cant Bear any Factory Blade on My Face these Days..I Am that Used to the Velvet Smooth Feeling of Hollow Ground Blade SEs & SRs..Factory Blades are Like Window Scraper Blades Compared to a Properly Honed Hollow Ground Blade..;)

One Must Acquire the Skills to Use them & that Of Course is a Journey of the Few..:D

Batch of 10 Sheffield Full Hollow Grind Rolls Blades Honed on a Naniwa Super Stone Progression..These are Often Mistaken as Wedge Blades..They are Not..They are an Obscure Hollow Ground Blade with a Sorta Wedge Design..The Blades are Very Strongly Built to take the Wear n Tear of a Somewhat Pressurized 12 K Honing & Stropping Rolls System..;)

I Changed the Edge on this Single Edge BOKER Full Hollow Ground Swedish Steel Blade from a 17 K Escher Thuri Finish to a Surgical Black Arkansas 20 K Finish..I Took it Back to the Naniwa 8 K, 12 k, 16 k Film, Surgical Black 20 K Arkie for a Change of Pace... :D

I Honed @Karl G Blade for His C.V Heljestrand SE...The Nordic Queen as He Calls it..I Did it on My Arkie & I Liked the Edge So Much I Done One of My Own for My Own C.V Heljestrand SE..Never Came Across Another Usable BOKER SE Hollow Ground Blade..She has a Wicked & Smooth Edge...Cuts the Whiskers Like a Silent Ninja..:p

Swedish Steel Takes an Awesome Edge from a Surgical Black Arkie...:cool:
