    A big :thanks: to @gssixgun for my raffle prize which arrived today! It looks awesome and feels great in the hand. The grooves in the horn handle also offer an excellent grip.
    Thanks again Glen! :)

    I had an excellent shave this morning with this setup!

    I have never tried Van Der Hagen soap before. It has light, classic soapy fragrance that I find pleasant, and it did not irritate my overly sensitive skin the way strong fragrances sometimes do.
    It was easy to whip up a good slick lather with the synthetic brush. I am impressed with this soap.

    I loaded a Gillette 7 O'Clock Super Stainless (Green) into the 1956 Gillette SuperSpeed.
    Smooth, easy, comfortable shave - two passes followed by a little touch up in a few spots.

    Nice start to a day off.

    Joseph, my #1 choice would have been your Mystic Water coupon, but when only one item jumps out at you, it really isn't worth it to enter. Maybe the next one.

    It's worth entering if for no other reason than supporting TSD. ;)

    You don’t have to enter the raffle if you don’t want to.
    Just do a donation ($25/$50/$100/whatever) under the “Donations” tab to show your support.

    My Diamondine No. 7 made it in today and I am so excited. I appreciate Scott @DaltonGang offering this beauty up for raffle. It was very generous. Being a newbie to the field of straights this will be a big help in my journey. I love the personalized warning and I will take it to heart.

    I also appreciate everyone that participated in the raffle whether your bought tickets or made a donation. This is the best shaving forum on the net and the only one I am a member of.

    Thanks and a shout out to @Queen of Blades. You are most definitely appreciated.

    Received my second raffle prize after a slight delay crossing the border.

    A Razorock Black Hawk with custom handle and a Gillette Twin Injector donated by @jtspartan

    I had some blades for the Gillette so that one has already been for a run. :)

    That Black Hawk really caught my attention especially with the custom handle; it's a real beauty!

    Very nice! Most say it's a mild razor but I get really fantastic shaves with my Gillette Twinjector. I don't use twin injector blades in mine though. If a single blade can't do the job, it's not worth having IMHO! :happy102:

    Hope you enjoy yours! :eatdrink047:

    I’m glad to know it will take a single. I’ve tried the Gillette twins in a Schick before and I’m just not impressed with them.
    And yes, my first shave was mild.

    I've seen lots of people say the only injector razor that was ever good with twin blades is the Schick type O and the eBarbershop type O clone.
