    FrankenTech (Post-War head) delivered a much more enjoyable shave than the Super 84 yesterday. Yeah a lot of strokes to get to BBS on my head but with the tungsten weighted handle it's a pleasure to use when not in a hurry. Astra SS.[​IMG]

    Thursday OCtober 24

    So I decided to go "big" today. Pulled out my 1923 Big Fellow, used my largest brush, a 31mm M&F, and Stirling Deep Blue Sea A/S.

    Bowl/Scuttle - GP12
    Soap - La Savonniere du Moulin (A+ in my book)
    Brush - M&F Arley Butterscotch
    Blade - Gillette Platinum (8)
    Razor - Gillette New Big Fellow 1923
    Post Shave - OSMA Pierre alum, Stirling Deep Blue Sea A/S

    Shave rating 5 of 5

    The Big Fellow provided an excellent, 2 pass shave. The first pass WTG was smooth with a little blade feel, and fairly efficient - DFS. The second pass, XTG and again was a very smooth pass with no blade feel and and finished BBS. I haven't used this soap since the beginning of the month; it is my favorite, just ahead of MWF. With an almond sized chunk, this soap generated enough high lubricating lather for 6 passes if if I wanted them. I got a 2 pass, nick and weeper free shave. The alum was a little vocal on my neck area and on my upper lip. I finished off with the Stirling Deep Blue Sea A/S.

    Overall, an excellent shave. Have a few more vintage OC razors to use before I break out my current OC razors for this last week of OCtober.

    Happy OCtober and great shaves everyone.

    image.jpg Just recently had my first shave with my Gillette Ball End Tech Gold, And I have to say I put it to the test! I did a 3 pass shave on 7 days of growth and got one of the best Shaves in my life!! I used a Treet Platinum blade for the first time as well and it was a great blade! I here sometimes ppl do not like the tech for how mild they are but I got a great shave from it and was really surprised!!! I have another ballend Nickel and a Fat Handle from 1932 made in Canada!!!
