    Back to the SE and I have no finer an SE in my collection than the Colonial General SS. I love my DE’s but the General covers a lot real estate quickly and smoothly. My preferred AC blade is the Schick ProLine but the Feather Pro is also quite good in this razor and so so I loaded a fresh one today.

    Soap of choice HetV Terre d’Henri which is a earthy scent and a blend of citrus and spice. One of my favourite soaps from HetV and it lathers quite well and provides a lovely slick shave. Plus for me is that they are a Canadian artisan and so extra points in my books. Wish they came in a larger size tub but today I used my Simpson Special in Best and had no issues loading up a healthy amount of soap despite its small size.

    Lovely and easy three pass shave and BBS achieved. The General is just a fantastic shaver and the Feather was smooth and sharp. Just perfect. Finished off with the matching balm and some Guerlain L’Homme Ideal to keep to the scent profile. Excellent shave all around. Enjoy the day!

    I've tried V2, with original classic handle, and It's a great shaver.
    Even better with the right balance of a different handle.
    As in the FrankenRazor Generale Tartaruga Due.

    Better balance, more precise.
    On the head should be easier.
