I had a very enjoyable shave with my Kampfe Brothers Star razor on my bullet casing handle today. Oddly I got better results when the shave angle was VERY steep. More experimentation needed. The little bit of irritation I did get was during the initial shallow angle first pass. That irritation quickly dissipated. However I started thinking how I usually get little to no irritation on the back of my neck which is almost exclusively steep angles. So I finished the rest of the shave with an almost 90 degree blade angle. This resulted in a very close comfortable shave. I'm sure steep angle shaving isn't right for everyone. But today with this razor that's what worked best for me.

SOTD 30 Jan 2020 -- TNNSER-3D Thursday
Spoiler alert, this razor will be entered into my short list of "Razor Loves" at the Valentine Razor thread. I've already got one listed, but as we can have more than one Razor Love, the TNNSER-3D is most definitely on my list! While I love the look of this razor, what puts it over the top for me are the shaves that I get. Today was a 3-pass shave with dolphin-like results on my face....and even more importantly to me: no blood, no nicks, no irritation, not even a hint of sensitivity post-shave....just smoothness. The brush (Yaqi Barbershop 24mm 2-Band Badger) and soap (RazoRock Black Label) were also top performers....both were from a reciprocal PIF (aka "a trade"), and both also performed flawlessly. Great day in ye ol' shave cave!

carlfrommo: Hey guys. Last minute question here. What shot size should I use for flying reindeer?
Dec 24, 2019 22:11:29 GMT -6
ordinaryshaver: You want to use 3 1/2 in magnum lead shot, in size T. Problem solved.

ordinaryshaver: No steel, too light and use an extra full choke, unless you have a good blind setup

carlfrommo: Well, last night was a failure. I had one shot, and I didn't lead the red-nosed one enough. I think I ended up shooting the driver. Might have gotten him in the leg. Hard to tell because he was wearing red pants and coat.

carlfrommo: He turned his sled away and landed on the roof two blocks down. Out of range for a second shot. I did notice he walked with a bit of a limp though. He shouldn't be coming in my yard anyway.

mrconklin: Last time I hunted waterfowl. 2 3/4 shells were standard and the cool kids were starting to play with the 3 inch, but most guns weren't made for them. Steel was also just starting to be mandated on Federal and State land.
