my mum, dad and my brother’s family gave me this japanese shaving razor as a present to my birthday in january. since years i shave my beard with a knife, but the one i used was a soft and very light version from TONDEO – check my post about shaving some weeks ago. my new knife is a shaving razor with changeable blades, too, but much heavier and bigger in comparison to the TONDEO COMFORT CUT. really similar to a traditional shaving razor. it is a FEATHER SHAVING RAZOR ARTIST CLUB DX knife, made in japan, and it is offered by . it works so perfect. much better and less difficult in use than the light TONDEO razor. no cuts, no hurts, just smooth in use and easy to handle. i think after using this knife a while i will try someday a classic one which has no changeable blades – i am sure i will do! pics | LTG


although i have a beard, at the moment a large one, a good day for me starts with a comfortable and accurate shave. of course classic: with a knife, a brush and a shaving soap. but i must admit that i am not so hardcore with my razor like others. i use a knife with changeable blades from TONDEO. and i must tell you even with this COMFORT CUT called blades i left some marks over the years. i am not brave enough to test a razor which i sharp myself with a strop. how do i know that it got blunt? when blood runs over my throat? hm, i would like to use, because you can get so awesome razor knives and the sharpen procedure is certainly something special. i think i must ask a specialist for details, maybe ALEX from because blog is an expert on razor shaving because he linked some very interesting sites on his blog site like . i will meet him the upcoming weekend in frankfurt. a great combo is the WHISKEY SHAVE SOAP from PORTLAND GENERAL STORE with the corresponding eau de toilette. smells like a pure smooth bourbon – so awesome in the morning. and one of my best buys this year is the BAXTER OF CALIFORMIA TRAVEL SHAVING BRUSH. genius idea. wow, when i used this piece for the first time it smelled so for badger and animal … boooaaah. but so i knew it was not a fake.  pics | LTG
