    Running late today but my Le Grand Chypre landed so I hand to give it a whirl! Grabbed No.15 #3 (Does that make sense?) and had at it. As always a solid SOTD!

    Second blade Focus starts today for my 1911 OLD. Shark Super Chrome is in the arena this week.
    The two day growth was mowed down no problem. Monday's shave starts the real audition. If a blade can't handle stubble than it's no good for me. I'm not worried about the Shark however.

    The second blade audition for my 1911 OLD is underway. Shark Super Chrome is up. Yesterday on a two day growth, the duo racked up a BBS shave. Today on workweek stubble, ditto. Lovin' the OLD!!

    Fantastic shave this morning with my 1911 OLD and the great tribute brush crafted by @jimjo1031.

    As I "continue down the path" with my 1911 OLD, I am more and more convinced that I will be going to an OLD/NEW rotation once I've found "the" blade for the OLD.
    I'll mix in my other vintage razors as the spirit moves me.

    One more shave in this blade audition tomorrow. Then the OLD gets a new playmate, PolSilver. New blade to me, but I have seen a lot of positive stuff about it. Should be interesting.

    So the Shark Super Chrome audition closed out this morning. By a very narrow margin the GSB held on to the top spot. Next up on Sunday is the PolSilver Super Iridium. That will be followed by the Rapira Platinum Lux and then, last but not least Voskhod. The next 3 weeks are gonna be great!

    Another day, another shave with my 1911 Single Ring OLD. The PolSilver Super Iridium is doing pretty good. Two more shaves to go.
