Lube is applied with an additional lather over the top for good measure.

Review of Razor: At first the razor blade
itself seemed a bit "twitchy." Each new blade is so sharp and
mechanically made that it is not as "buttery" as a real carbon steel
blade of course. It didn't feel like it had a personality. But with
just a few shaves, I really started to like this razor. The blades are
not nearly as flimsy as most, so they have a great feel to them. What I
like most about this razor of almost any other I've tried is that the
blade part of the razor is significantly weighted. The added weight
makes it feel much more confident when handled. Not to mention is looks
very much like a real cutthroat blade.
The razor itself is
very well made. It feels like it is going to last me a long time and
many shaves. The blade when inserted feels very solid. There is no
protection on the tip of the blade so you have to be very aware.
This is the razor I choose to use on my guests when I perform
Traditional Shaves in the Parlour.
