    The Bunny is an open comb injector razor that believe me, delivers a seriously close shave. 10 hours later and I am still smooth.

    A very good shave this morning. I know it is boring but the Route 66 soaps just flat works. They are so easy to lather and are very slick. Back to the Timeless OC for the next few days. With such a large blade gap, this razor will bite if you don't pay attention. The Timeless also requires a much steeper angle than my other razors as well. So it is not surprising that I ended up with a small weeper on my third pass. Overall I would give the near BBS shave an "A-". I finished up with a splash of Floid Blue. I hope everyone has a great Thursday.

    Razor: Timeless Stainless Steel Open Comb w/Timeless Barber Pole Handle
    Blade: Gillette Platinum (7)
    Brush: El Druida Cocobolo w/ Druida Manchurian
    Soap: Route 66 Perfect Storm
    Aftershave: Floid Blue

    Excellent 3 pass with a minor touch up today. The Gillette Platinum has stood the test of time giving me 7 excellent close comfortable. As is my rule I'll change to a Feather Platinum blade tomorrow. The Barber Pole handle is of outstanding weight and balance for me. I can truly say that there isn't a Timeless handle I don't like. Each brings their own personality to the party. YMMV. Snow started today for the first time this year. There you go. :)
    Start.

    Another very good 3 pass shave this morning. After minimal touch ups, I ended the shave with a near BBS. The Timeless OC is an exceptionally efficient razor. The Reef Point Dragon's Blood continues to impress me with each use. I will certainly buy more Reef Point soaps in the future. Finished off the shave with a splash of Fine Platinum. I hope everyone has a fantastic Friday.

    Shave for Friday OCtober 28, 2016

    Above The Tie SE2 open comb razor
    Feather AC Professional blade (1)
    The Grooming Co. synthetic brush
    Stirling Bay Rum soap
    Captain's Choice Lime aftershave

    My plans to do an OCtober focus have been derailed by the arrival of new razors (I have no willpower when it comes to new toys. :ashamed001: )

    Fortunately the lastest arrival allows me to get back on track at least for a few shaves, as it is the SE2 open comb single edge razor from Above The Tie. I believe that this is the first open comb single edge razor in about 75 years.

    As with all ATT products it is finely crafted and a great shaver.
