    Treading in new waters with my first OC shave.

    It was a 2.5 pass but tried not to get to cute as I wasn't sure how my skin would react. Over all a decent shave only one hiccup a nick on my neck in a spot that I shouldn't have attempted for the 1st time with a new razor. ATG isnt as clean as with a flare or Aristocrat but given it my first attempt very acceptable. Still not sure about the soap, it seemed to make the razor drag some. I was told to add water which I did, a lot more in fact and it still dragged some. Ill give it another shot as I like the scent, but if it doesn't work out I have a handful of stirling heading my way.

    Razor - Gillette Tuckaway
    Blade - Astra SP
    Soap - Ginger Gardens Suede
    Brush - Vintage Made Rite
