    I am planning out my shaves for March. I decided that my SE razors have been a little lonely lately, so I am giving them love during March SE Maddness. Here is my line up in my newly christened "Fortnight Razor Stand."

    March Maddness SE2.jpg

    Front row (left to right): Schick C, Schick E3, Eversharp-Schick G3, Eversharo-Schick I Hydro-Magic, Schick L, Gillette Injector, Pal Injectomatic
    Back row (left to right): Gem 1912, Every-Ready 1914, Every-Ready 1924, MMOC, MMCP, MMBT, Gem Pushbutton
    Bottom: Bunny V3

    I am planning to use the injectors first followed my the Bunny, and then I will do the Gems. That will make 15 days of shaves. I will repeat. I will also be using my straight on the weekends. If needed, I will use one of the SEs as a back up. I will rotate soaps daily, too.

    Jim, I will join the party if that's okay. I'll be rotating through my injectors and SEs.

    Schick G1, G8, I1, J1, L1, M Adjustable
    Personna Injector
    PAL Adjustable injector
    RazoRock Black Hawk SE
    GEM Pushbutton and Featherweight SE

    I may not rotate through a soap daily but there will be a good many soaps used throughout the month.

    I had planned on starting with the Schicks, but when I started taking my pictures I had a senior moment and took pictures with the Gems first. That is ok. I'll get to the Schicks next. So, tomorrow, I will shave with the Gem 1912. I will also be using my newest brush, the Jayaruh #144 with an Ace finest badger. Here is a sneak peek.

After a cold water rinse and alum block, I finished off with Thayer's Lemon WH and then Pinaud Vegetal AS. I am clean, smooth, and refreshed...

    I'm beginning March with the GEM Featherweight. It was smooth and comfortable this morning. Nice shave in the end. The soap of course contributed to a nice shave and Route 66 is top-notch.

    Have a great day!

    It seems like every day is an SE day for me now. Between my SEs, injectors and SRs, I haven't used my DEs much anymore.

    I haven't used a DE in almost a year! Injectors and SEs just work better for me.

    Switched to the Schick G8 injector today. Nice, smooth, comfortable shave. This is my traditional Fat Friday setup. Mitchell's is terrific soap and the lather was swiped away easily with the G8. No complaints!

    Have a great day!

    Jim, if it is ok I will join you in March SE Madness. I will be using my artist club razors, Mongoose, AlumiGoose and Cobra for the month.

    Wonderful smooth irritation free 3 pass shave this morning. The Reef Point soap was easy to lather and slick. The AlumiGoose took care of business. Really couldn't ask for much better.

    A wonderful this morning. The Rover easily whipped up the Dragon's Blood into a rich slick lather. Sticking with a traditional 3 pass shave, I paid particular attention to my trouble spots as I went. This resulted less touch ups needed to achieve a near perfect BBS with one small weeper. I hope everyone has a great Saturday.

    Black Hawk today. Decent shave - not my best. The new blade felt a little rough. Maybe it needs to break in a little bit. I still enjoy the Black Hawk a lot. The Stirling products were terrific as usual.

    Have a great day!

    Very nice setup, Clint. Really enjoy the brush handle's color and love the contrast of the razor handle and razor head. Enjoy your Saturday!

    A smooth near BBS 2 pass shave, XTG & ATG, followed by minor touch ups provided a great start to the Day. I finished off the shave with a splash of Fine Platinum. I hope everyone has a blessed Sunday.
