Impression

The blade was honed outside the case which has been modernised with FeOx on the strop and the hone lapped with film. The resulting razor it a kit which can be fully maintained inside the case with modern materials.

The shave was good. Not skin close, certainly not sub-skin, but close and delivering a smooth shave which I'm sure will grow out very nicely.

The soap is vintage Rolls Razor soap - very slick, lovely lather, very moisturising and probably chock full of things which made soap so great back then, but are entirely illegal for modern soap manufacturers. Lovely stuff!
