    SE Shave # 273 - Affronted August Soap - Weekdays

    Rating: 5 / 5

    Razor: Shick - Injector Type J
    Blade: Persona Injector
    Brush: Simpson Trafalgar T2 Sovereign Synthetic
    Lather: Declaration Grooming/Chatillon Lux Pure Lavender
    Aftershave: Chatillon Lux Pure Lavender Toner
    Additional Care:
    Stirling Alum Block
    Humphreys Cucumber Melon Witch Hazel
    Stirling Unscented Glacial Balm

    A very relaxing shave with the Pure Lavender soap and toner. I elected to use the Schick injector. This was my fourth shave with this blade. While the shave was close, I have had better with all of my injectors. The shave would not have even come close to passing the cotton ball test.

    On a positive notes, the post shave alum report was silent. The post shave effects of the toner are fabulous.

    Stay cool my friends. The temperatures here on LI are in the upper 80’s.

    I would think the steps should be the same. I have confidence Paul will figure it out.

    Thanks Gary. I do know the dreaded sweet smell from the coolant because I have blown engines in my day. Thankfully, that wasn't the case, but I will check for puddles underneath my car during the following week. I am glad that I found a trustworthy mechanic that isn't looking to gouge me. My previous mechanic would have said that I would need a new radiator, belts and a thermostat. Just kidding, but every time I went to get the car serviced, it was like 1000 dollars or more for the privilege.

    From what I understand the razor comes with 10 plates for a snapped DE blade or 10 for an injector blade.

    I picked this one up off of Ebay used so I did not have any interaction directly with MARS. Their website is suppose to be up soon and Kickstarter part has ended. I think if you buy additional plates they are around $1.00 each but I'm not sure. I think the razor and 10 plates may sell for around $50.00.

    If they can sell it for around that price point I think it is worth it.

    It has a great solid feel in that hand even though it it plastic. The quality seems to be there. It ain't the prettiest in the den but it will hang with the best.

    Take care.
