    Schick G1 today. This is my "home base" razor. @clint64 graciously PIFed it to me over a year ago and I've enjoyed it ever since. The small Jayaruh boar worked really well today. I squeezed out every bit of water I could after soaking it while in the shower. Then I dribbled a few drops of water on top of the soap and began to load. It worked quite well. Great lather and a really nice shave in the end.

    Have a great weekend!

    I thought you'd like the razor but I never anticipated the SE journey it would start for you.

    Schick adjustable today. I find this razor to be smooth and easy to use. There are some who think the opposite of this razor and prefer the PAL adjustable instead. I'm in the other camp. The PAL is a neat razor but I haven't figured it out yet as much as the Schick. This razor has given me some great shaves. I've been on setting 6 for the past few uses. I'd like to bump it up soon and see where that leads.

    Anyway, nice shave with the Schick adjustable and a menthol Monday combination. Really enjoyable and comfortable. Have a great day!

    Schick adjustable again today. Moved it up to setting 7 and found it to be comfortable and efficient. Really enjoyed that setting. This razor is growing on me as I find it to be a good combination of smooth and efficient. The Puros soap whipped into nice lather with little effort. However the post shave feel isn't all that great - it feels a little drying for me. The scent was nice and smoky. Overall the soap is a good choice.

    Have a great day!

    Brush: JR #60 synthetic

    WTG, touch-up

    Featherweight today, and a smooth, comfortable shave it was. First time with the Hibco soap and I was happy with the results. Nice scent and good performance. It's not the best soap I own, but I've shaved with worse performers. The JR #60 is a terrific brush and needs very little water to start making tremendous lather. Stirling's Mountain Man finished it all off. Nice shave all things considered.

    Have a great day!

    Schick L1 today. The use of this razor means I have gone through all 11 on my injectors and SE razors in this month so far. I'll reuse some of them as I continue variety for the month. Today's shave was nice and easy. The L1 is quite mild but very smooth and efficient. Nice lather and scent from the Baker Street products.

    Have a great day!
