    Today I used a Gillette Black Beauty Super Adjustable 109 set wide open to "9". Blade was a Gillette "Green" (whichever one that is) on it's first use.
    Tabac soap in the bowl, face lathered with a "La Maison du Barbier" Plisson synthetic with a faux ivory handle. Cold water rinse, then witch hazel followed by Tabac aftershave and a small application of Tabac cologne to the elbows.

    Monday OCtober 21

    Going with some US made razors this week. First up is my 1934 Aristocrat. While this razor shaves well, it's not quite as good as my British Aristocrat #15.

    Bowl/Scuttle - GP12
    Soap - MWF (it's Monday)
    Brush - Rubberset 400-3
    Blade - Gillette Platinum (5)
    Razor - Gillette Aristocrat 1934 (US)
    Post Shave - OSMA Pierre alum, Clubman Reserve Whiskey Woods

    Shave rating 5 of 5

    This Aristocrat is a mild razor and not very efficient. I received a good shave in 2 passes. I didn't shave over the weekend so I had 3 days beard growth. The first pass WTG was smooth with no blade feel, and not very efficient and it left me with some stragglers, <DFS. The second pass, XTG and again was a very smooth pass with absolutely no blade feel and and finished BBS. The MWF lather was very good on both passes. I got a 2 pass, nick and weeper free shave. The alum was silent, even on my neck area which is unusual. I finished off with the Clubman Whiskey Woods, a scent I really like.

    Overall, a really good shave. Going with some US made OC razors this week.

    Happy OCtober and great shaves everyone.
