    gorgo2 geezerhood

    Today I shaved with a recently found '58 Super Speed. While other classic Gillette razors look more interesting, I'd forgotten (been probably more than 5 years) how good this one feels in the hand.

    You got that right Gary, nothing shaves like the Brits and with a Gillette Platinum BB. ;) I do like my Feathers and Med Preps as well. Come to think of it, I have a slide 15 pack of 73 to 75 Gillettes that I'll have to break out and compare. I remember those used with a Black Beauty. Lots of weepers when you've had a few and in a hurry to go out and party. :)

    When I went back to old school Gillette shaving, the first blades I bought were the Kai. I've always liked that blade but for some reason or another I always reach for something else. Not ever the same razor, soap, cream, or blade. But as of late I'm pretty much stuck on synthetic brushes and I always face lather. I've started using shave balms instead of lotion but that depends on the day too. Shaving is a pleasure now days.

    Yet this hasn't kept me from the purchase of several thousand blades of one persuasion or another. The count is more like 3000 give or take a few. And now I'm attempted to purchase a few Gillette blades from China. LOL Just to compare mind you, just to compare. :)

    Razor: Gillette British Rocket SS- MFG 1950's N.D.Codes, nice mild razor, it's nice to have a few mild razors in the my harem of razors I enjoy, well built and does a great job of shaving a little faster in which it was designed for this task for men on the go.
    Blade: Kai SS (7) sharp & smooth with great longevity, extra wide by 4.5/1000 of inch per side, great for mild razors IMO.
    Soap: Ogallala Bayrum sage & cedarwood, nice scent & a soap that is enjoyable to try to dial in, mister helps me a lot for this.(misted)
    Brush: Yaqi 26mm Moka 2band badger, excellent lather generator, pillow like soft tips, nice scrubber + great lather painter.
    Pre shave: Brush wash my whole face with CeraVe hand bar cleanser + a dollop of clear aloe Vera gel on the cleaned beard area.
    Prep: Cold water rinse after each pass of 2 + pickups.
    Post shave: Witch hazel beard cleanse + Ogallala Bayrum & Sandal wood + a dollop of CeraVe moisturizer lotion(balm) + scentless.
    Results: CCS, DFS, BbS + no irritation + no weepers = [​IMG]Excellent shave with my British Gillette SS Rocket with a Kai SS blade.
