SE SOTD, Wed, Dec 29th, 2021 Razor: Valet Auto-strop Canadian variant- Mfg 1920's-30's NDCodes, I always like using these razors once you get them dialed in and have a sharp blade in one. I find the FHS-10 blade only good for a few shaves and then tossed. Great razor for it's time period from my limited research because you could shave & strop a carbon blade with the same razor. The FHS-10 is the only blade that will fit the later versions of Valet Auto-Strop, C types & below will take a modified Gem blade which is superior blade IMO. Blade: Feather FHS-10 (2)- great shave on first use and quickly fades out on sharpness, only blade that fits some Valet auto strop razors. Soap: Razorock Blue barber, nice barber shop scent with excellent lather qualities. Brush: Yaqi "the Panda" 24mm tuxedo knot, excellent lather generator, cloud like soft tips, nice gentle scrub, great painter. Pre shave: Brush wash 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: Razorock blue barber AS with witch hazel + a dollop of CeraVe moisturizer lotion (balm) + scentless. Results: CCS,DFS,BBS + no irritation + no weepers = great shave with my Valet auto-strop with a feather FHS-10 blade. Have some great shaves!
