    One more shave with my OLD this week and auditions will be over. It's looking like Shark Super Chrome and Voskhod will be duking it out. Then it'll be my SA-109 for the rest of the month!

    Hello folks, here's my OC SOTD for today-

    [​IMG]

    Today's implement of beard destruction was my Pearl SSH-01 OC head, on my SABI T-1 handle. Blade was a Bolzano Superinox. I used everything in the photo except the Pinaud.
    This razor head is a beast. I rarely get chopped up, but this morning I made a few slight errors and the price was no less than five nicks that actually drew blood. I don't think I have ever had that many nicks before. Oh well, better luck next time eh? At any rate, I will rate this shave as an SAS, due to the blood letting, even though all stubble is gone. I hope you guys, and gals have better luck. But above all else, enjoy your journey through the traditional wet shave kingdom. God Bless, and have a great day!

    Thanks for the tip, unfortunately, I tossed it. The proprietor of the store told me to toss it, even though he included it with the razor. I can't recall exactly why. I think it may have been defective. So toss it I did. But for some reason, I saved the gold one on my T-2. I guess I'm a sucker for shiny stuff. More trinkets and baubles to chuck into the dumpster when I start my next part of my journey. Hopefully though, my heirs will keep, use and enjoy most of my "trinkets and baubles", on a regular basis. It would be a shame to see them tossed away. Have a good day sir.

    Dig It!!! I love those old MMOC's. They are pretty much my favorite SE. They give a fantastic shave too. It just takes a little time and patience to use one. You sure got that one looking good. Have you ever tried a Clog-Proof MicroMatic? The Clog-Proof's are great shavers as well.

    No, haven't tried one. I'm really looking forward to using the MMOC. Was not impressed with the Featherweight.
