Just for fun, here is my flare tip:

Obviously it’s been refinished. It’s done it cerakote or gun kote.
That's pretty slick looking.

Lsj74, That’s an impressive collection. Some interesting razors and old blade packs. Looks like a Simpson brush in there too.

A friend of mine had some trouble for a while when he was starting out and he learned that any soap that contained even small amounts of menthol, like Proraso, caused him irritation. It was a little like razor burn.

Thanks! :)

Delta Echo Razorworks is who did the refinish work. He does some pretty cool stuff if your not a purist.

I don't know what it is. I have used menthol shaving cream without issues in the past. Right now I'm just letting the beard grow. I haven't shaved since February.
MaxwellG is buying a couple of the adjustable razors and I'm thinking about putting the rest on eBay.
That is a Simpson brush in there.
