My New "Oscar11" Brush

I finally got an Oscar11 brush!

I have admired Steve’s brushes for some time now and finally got to add one to my Den.

It is a 24mmx50mm TGN Finest 2-Band Badger with a smoke grey transparent base and opaque black top in the M7 style.

It performs like a champ. I really like the 2-Band knot and the handle fits my hand like a glove.

Pre bloom.

Post bloom.

I had my second shave with it today.

Guys! I may have a problem! Just noticed a little skewness on old granddads’ Gillette butterfly. What do?

Can I practice with these?

They are old and rusty so I don’t care if I ruin them in the process BUT I don’t want to ruin a rare antique razor! Info on them are (1) Geneva Cutlery Corp. Geneva N.Y. on the other side it says Special A (2) H. Boker & Co. Germany the other side says Red-Injun No. 102 R.P. Any info will be appreciated
