    August?

    August was originally Sextilis, the sixth month in the Roman calendar and consisted of 31 days. It became the eighth month with a length of 29 days around 700 BC when January and February were added to the year. Julius Caesar added two days to the month around 45 BC. It was later renamed to honor Augustus Caesar in 8 BC.

    Now that we have that out of the way - show up your shaving acquisitions!

    What a way to start the month, courtesy of @alfredus. Simultaneously the smallest handle and the biggest knot I've ever had, which will take some getting used to. I'll give my thoughts in an SOTD soon. :)

    LASC BBS-1 =

    Los Angeles Shaving Co BBS-1, produced by James who became Wolfman Razors. This was the original and some say best. Commonly available around eBay from Russian vendors, not sure what the fuss is about.

    [EDIT: Just for abundant caution - the last sentence was sarcasm, there are LOTS of expensive fakes around]

    Nor do I.

    Just modern day stuff. Not like those tried and true vintage razors ...

    I wonder if there was a parallel Mark from the '60s who shunned the newfangled Slims and Fatboys in favour of the original Gillette open-combs. ;)

    So how is the wolf man design different than what came before?
