    Christmas Season Day 11.

    Blackland Blackbird Brass vs Steel showdown with Modern Williams

    Prep: Hot Shower and Bloom/Lather Building Water
    Soap: Modern Williams
    Razor: Blackland Blackbird Brass (OC and SB)/Blackland Blackbird Steel (OC and SB)/Merkur Mustache and Eyebrow Razor
    Blade: Personna Lab Blue (1)/Personna Lab Blue (1)/Merkur Mustache and Eyebrow Blade (11)
    Brush: Zenith Boar
    AS: Aqua Velva (Eur)
    ASB: Aqua Velva (Eur)

    The lather was creamy and slick, as it should be. Just wonderful.

    Now for the comparison pass by pass;
    Pass I
    Right side: Brass OC
    Smooth and efficient
    Left side: Steel OC
    Smooth and efficient
    Thought there was a point the razor wasn't gliding quite right
    Reevaluated and it was OHS (Operator Head Space)
    The Brass felt heavier, but that was about it.

    Pass II
    Right Side: Steel SB
    Smooth and efficient
    Left Side: Brass SB
    Smooth and efficient
    No difference

    Pass III
    Right side: Brass SB
    Smooth and efficient
    Left side: Steel SB
    Smooth and efficient
    No difference

    Conclusion: The brass is heavier.

    @PLANofMAN May I join the Blackland Brotherhood. Have a Vector (The KING of SE razors) and a Sabre. Just happened to use the same soap last time I used both

    Christmas Season Day 14.

    Blackland Blackbird Steel with Cella for a Marzipan shave.

    Prep: Hot Shower and Bloom/Lather Building Water
    Soap: Cella
    Razor: Blackland Blackbird Steel (OC and SB)/Merkur Mustache and Eyebrow Razor
    Blade: Personna Lab Blue (3)/Merkur Mustache and Eyebrow Blade (14)
    Brush: Zenith Synthetic
    AS: Cella
    ASB: Captains Choice 45th Parallel

    When whipped up right Cella is just as good as everything else. Just a nice smooth shave. Got two nicks, but that was OHS, not the fault of the equipment.
