Impression

What a shave! Certainly the best this month ...

I borrowed a Durham Duplex T-Type from a pal on another forum and really enjoyed it. He popped a honed and stropped vintage blade in and while I found it smooth, I did not find it especially sharp. These blades are sharp! Hand stropping took some of the edge off, but this first run was very sharp and very efficient, and I nicked myself a couple of times. I think the next on this blade will be smoother.

But, I loved it!

After rinsing, applying the Veg was a sheer delight.

Seriously, I cannot wait to shave with this again ...
