Great repeat shave Danny. I am sure that you are going to have a great time with your grandkids.
Kool Kami shave Joe.
Wonderful shave Danny again. Enjoy the grandkids.
Excellent shave Joe. Glad you are enjoying your less aggressive injector.
Thank you Joe.
Very nice shave Chris. I have the ER 200T as well. I swiped it from my father in the mid ‘70s. It had a boar knot in it. I had the knot replaced with a synthetic brush in 2017. It lathers very well, however, I have since accumulated a decent collection of boars, therefore I now wish I had refitted with a boar. I enjoy my boars very much.
I guess I could have it refitted with a boar but that would require it being sent out because the knot was installed with epoxy instead of silicone. Perhaps it due time or not.
Thanks Joe....I'm looking forward to it.
Thanks Joe...I'm sure I will but I'm also sure they are going to wear me down.
Thanks Joe. The razor really surprised me.

Early morning shave.
Last use of the Derby Usta.. My reacquaintance with both the Derby premium & Usta throughout the week has been a pleasant surprise. Both blades have performed wonderfully with the efficient R41.
It's been a while since i last used the Omega shaving cream and forgot how much easy it is to create a slick protective lather, with a good kick from the Eucalyptus oil to give my ageing face sensors a vibrant late winter morning wakeup call!
A very comfortable 2 pass + pick ups shave with no errors to report. Finishing the shave off with a few small dollops of Boots Cucumber Moisturising Lotion.
My face is feeling smooth cool, & smelling divine.
Keep safe, and enjoy your day ladies & gentlemen.
Nothing like an invigorating shave to get you started in the morning. Very nice Barry.
Wonderful shave Barry. I am not surprised that the Omega shave cream is a good product. Enjoy your afternoon.

Pretty routine sophisticated goo shave. I missed my usual tough area(jawline, below right ear), but went back to get it later. Also missed the right side of North Porcupine Alley. No cuts, Knicks, Polka--Dots. One pass(I always do just the one for goo shaves). The Bill Neumann was a nice finish(skin food A.S.). Most Outstanding,

Absolutely Joe. It was a wonderfully invigorating early morning cold water shave.
Thank you Joe. The Omega shave cream is excellent, it doesn't have much of a scent but it's lather quality, slickness and post shave feel from the eucalyptus oil is outstandingly good. Have a great day.
