Shave of the Day - 6/27


Cold Water Rinse
Morning TOST
Jayaruh #369 Synthetic
Valet AutoStrop VB1
Valet AutoStrop (14)
CWR
Pinaud Clubman

This is my fourteenth shave with this blade. My prep was just a cold water rinse. The Morning TOST Shave Soap face lathered well with the Jayaruh #369 Synthetic brush. I did two passes with the Valet AutoStrop VB1 razor with a Valet AutoStrop blade and ended up with a close, comfortable shave. After a cold water rinse, I finished off with Pinaud Clubman AS. I am clean, smooth, and refreshed...

AutoStrop A1 Razor

This model is the first of the AutoStrop razors. Here is mine.

It has a push button release on the back and front and back rollers..

It says AutoStrop on the top.

The handle is fixed.

It has a serial number on the end of the handle.

Here is an ad from March 1913 that guarantees 500 shaves from 12 blades by stropping. (Open the ad in another window. Then you can click on it to make it big. It will be easier to read.)
