I wanted to express my appreciation of the work you did with the Wade & Butcher! I’ve been looking for the ‘perfect’ shave for around 40 years (I’ll be 61 here shortly) starting with electric razors, and then graduating to DE safety razors and the shavette. None of these compare to W&B you honed. It was glorious to hear the blade ‘sing’ as I shaved with it. I didn’t need to apply any pressure, the heaviness of the blade (and its edge) made it glide through my beard effortlessly. I watched the video you sent me on stropping and I very carefully and slowly stropped 25 times before each shave.
It is a pleasure working with a craftsman such as yourself and I will send the W&B back in 6 months (or sooner) for a tune-up. I also took the liberty of telling the staff at our local knife & razor store here in Regina (they sell Dovo razors) about you and the excellent work you do. I gave them your name and website and suggested they pass the information along to anyone purchasing a Dovo razor from them.
Thank you again for all your help and guidance.
