    1959 #195 on Number 9. Always gives a consistent effective reduction. I used an Astra SP of unknown number shaves, and Palmolive Classic shave stick.

    Slim Adjustable on 9 with Razorock Tobacco #1 worked with the TOST LE. A dollar store Dorco did a super job that was completed by the Family Dollar smells like Brut.

    OK. Maybe I need to adopt a Fatboy Friday in my lineup. It hasn't been getting much love this year.
