    A few firsts today: first cold water shave of 2018, first use of a Wee Scot and first use of a DeHaven No.3, sold to me for a very fair price by @jmudrick, thank you sir, you're a gentleman.
    The Wee Scot has quite a bit of prickle and scritch, hopefully it'll soften with use.
    The DeHaven on the other hand is a winner from the word go, very smooth operator which gave me a DFS in two passes.
    Happy Shaving one and all.

    Having been informed that the Wee Scot looses it's prickle I've decided to fast track it.
    Today's shave with the DeHaven was a cracker and the Pashana rounded it off beautifully.
    Happy Shaving one and all.

    I thought I'd see how the DeHaven coped with >30hrs growth and it did pretty well.
    It's a very smooth operator although not quite as efficient as a 1914, which was my initial thoughts but it took a bit more tidying up around the chin and neck than the 1914.
    All in all a decent shave, finished off with the lovely smelling Barts Balm ASL although personally I prefer the balm to the lotion.
    Happy Shaving one and all.

    As my last shave was only about 15hrs ago, a mild razor was called for and this little number was just the job.
    Have a great weekend everyone.
