    Thanks macaronus,
    I'm happy to enjoy the team.


    It's a good time for me to test the bunny. In a few days I will get my first Schick-Injector so it's possible to compare both razors with the same blades.

    (Sorry for my late response)

    Here are my first experiences - My first and second shave with the Bunny.

    My first impressions: Good weight for an Injector razor. The length is OK, not too long. Changing the blade is also not difficult, if you have seen Toms Video an Youtube.

    My setup for the first shave (July 06.):
    Preshave: Proraso Crema Pre Barba white
    Soap: Proraso white Shaving Soap
    Brush: Mühle Silvertip-Fibre 23mm
    Razor: Bunny Injector V3 / NOTSO
    Blade: Personna (1)

    Proraso soap is an undifficult soap for me, so I thought nothing could get wrong. The lather I always mix in a ceramic-bowl first. Lather was rich and creamy. Finding the ankle was easy. The NOTSO-Comb-feeling was between mild and sometimes a little bit more aggressive, but in the end-result it was OK. I had some problems with the lather. I wouldn't say that I used to less water in the mixing-process, but it was too thick for the razor. Over the shaved areas I sometimes had a thin layer of lather so that the blade couldn't touch my skin. It seemed that the lather blocked the comb. I think the flat design of the Bunny is not so good as other razors, that are more snake-like or curved. More and creamy lather can be better collect behind a curved design. I solved the problem cleaning it more often. I also used a thinner layer for the second and third pass (my three passes are with/cross/cross (other direction)). The layer-problem was not really gone but better.
    The result after the the second pass was very good, a third pass was not necessary (but on other razors it is) It just made fun. So I was happy.


    My setup for the second shave (July 07.):
    Soap: Calani Shaving Soap "Iberische Sonne" (Iberian sun)
    Brush: Mühle Black Fibre
    Razor: Bunny Injector V3 / NOTSO
    Blade: Personna (2)

    The lather was not so difficult for the bunny. No problems with the lather. The result was as good as yesterday. The handle was never slippery for me. The Balance is also good. There's nothing more about to say.

    After my shave today I like to try the Proraso soap once again with the bunny. Maybe it was only a beginner failure - I don't know.

    Tomorrow I think I test the MILD-comb.

    July 08 - Third Bunny-shave:

    [​IMG]
    My setup:
    Lather: Stirling Pharaoh's Dreamsicle
    Brush: Omega S-Brush
    Razor: Bunny Injector V3 / MILD
    Blade: Personna (3)
    Aftershave: Reuzel After Shave

    Yesterday I've read in the German forum that the best way to shave with the Bunny is that the copperplate have to touch the skin. So this morning I took more care to use a steep angle. I don't know if that was my mistake on the first shave. The lather was going through the comb without any trouble today . Cleaning with water was not more often necessary than on other SE-razors that I've tested. Tomorrow I will use it with the Proraso soap again.
    Marverel said, the mild-comb is very silent and he he had no felling of the blade. I can say the opposite, acoustic feedback was enough for me (if you hear no AC/DC in the background), blade-feeling was in 80-90 percent noticeable. The shave-result was after the second pass not as good as the days before but my pre-shave-preparation seemed not to be perfect today. After the third pass I recognized no differences to yesterday. - Perfect.
    There is one spot on the side of my neck, that is like a small hole for the razor. Stretching the skin helps a little bit, but the deep area is still there. It's always a little bit tricky there. Here works an slimelined head better for me than the Bunny. I was being enticed to work to often there. So today I've got a Little bit irritated on that spot.

    Except that spot it was a great smooth shave for me :)

    Edit: Changing date (July - not June)

    Glad that at least someone reads my posts over there. :p If the spring is away from the face, your angle is out. I just 'ride the spring' with NO PRESSURE. The Bunny then just glides across the face and as if by magic, the stubble is gone. Slick lather helps.

    July 09 - Fourth Bunny-shave:

    [​IMG]
    My setup:
    Pre-Shave: Proraso Crema Pre Barba (white)
    Lather: Proraso Sapone Pelli Sensibili (white)
    Brush: Plisson Synthetic bleu nuit satiné
    Razor: Bunny Injector V3 / MILD
    Blade: Personna (4)
    Pass: WTG-XTG-XTG-ATG
    Aftershave: Proraso Eucalyptus & Menthol
    Aftershave-Balm: Calani Purissima

    Yes rivverun, you were right.
    Today same lather than last Proraso-shave. Shaving without any troubles.
    Pre-shave was good, better than yesterday, but the result was the same - Third pass was needed.
    I had enough lather for a fourth pass. So I've tried it up the neck against the grain, where I normally have no problems with that. Terrible! Handling with that almost horizontal angle is not that way how humans would do that. The movement from bottom to top leads to hold the razor flat. Should I better push the razor upwards :confused:
    Maybe I can also learn it - We will see.

    Tomorrow Schick blade (my premiere) and back to NOTSO or trying the WILD-one.

    I used this phrase today as a mantra while I was shaving with the Bunny V3. Having the copper plate touch as you shave was a helpful tip for me. Thanks! I got my best Bunny shave with this tip. It helped me with the angle, particularly on my neck where I have struggled.

    Alas, DonnerJack had to decline for personal reasons. :( Perhaps he will re-enlist at a later time.
