    I bet he loves the brass General. Thank you Kerry. One of the other members here on TSD suggested the thread, I just went with the idea.

    23 November
    Thanksgiving Day (U.S.)


    Pre-Shave: Hot Shower
    Brush: Omega Boar Brush 81064
    Soap: The Lounge, Stirling
    Razor: The General Black Alu (Head) & Stainless Steel Handle, Colonial Razors
    Blade: Schick Proline (4)
    Post-Shave: Cold Water rinse, OSMA Alum block and English Leather After Shave

    I wanted a close smooth shave that would last all day as we had family coming over for the holiday meal. Another great performance from the Stirling soap and after using the Omega Boar for the past 23 days it is breaking in quite nicely. I don't know if it the blade or my technique but The General tore me up. Not that I drew blood but was left with the alum block singing praise to the heavens. I may have to switch out blades and go back to the Kai Pinks to see if it was me or not. I got good results from the Pinks. I was really hoping to like the Schick Proline blades as everyone has nothing but praise for them but my first use has not been a good one. Oh well, can't please everybody. Finished off the shave with some new English Leather. When I bought it the Wife said "Eww that stinks", but when I had it on yesterday she didn't say a word about it.

    Has anyone posted a report on the SS General yet? I don't remember seeing one, but I could have easily missed it.
