Pastes are In:

Well I retract my previous statements about chromium oxide pastes and went ahead and added it to the inside of my nylon webbing and after the true BBS shave I got this morning, I determined that anyone who recommends NOT doing this with a strop is a quack in my humble opinion:

I also decided to try a new picture setting and it's awesome on here. It took a shade longer to load up but it looks much better. This the 8 MM setting:

I'm thinking about going higher on the settings but I have to check face book first to see how long it takes for them to be loaded up. On my blog the 8 mm is fine and doesn't take a long time to load up. The highest image settings my camera can go is 16 mm.

Man that shave was epic, wow. For today's brush, I went with my RazoRock Plissoft 24 mm synthetic  and the lather it builds is awesome ...
