    Yaqi Raster 1
    Feather Proguard ( 3 )
    Tabac A/S Lotion

    The jury is out with the use of this blade in the Raster. The Razor dragged a lot during initial clearance of Two days growth, and though the finish was generally good, I could get the edges around the lips clear.

    Van der Hagen Luxury Shave Soap
    Bunny B400 Badger by T. White

    English Leather AS

    The Van der Hagen Luxury Shave Soap lathered well with the Bunny B400 Badger Brush. Two passes and touch ups with the Bunny V3 Injector Razor with the NOTSO comb and a Supply Black Label injector blade gave me a close, comfortable shave. After a cold water rinse I finished off with English Leather AS. I am clean, smooth, and refreshed...

    Alpha G4 Syn 28mm
    Vitos Super Red
    Yaqi Raster V2
    Feather Proguard ( 4 )
    Alcolado Glacial A/S splash

    Today I used the second of my Rasters, also fitted with a Feather Proguard Blade.Dealing with only a days growth this was a much pleasanter Shave than yesterday, and the overall finish quality was better. Must try The Raster out with some different blades.

    Sunday Schick Shave, June 19, 2022

    Razor : Stick Schick theme injector, MFG 1973- mild razor, light touch works well, handle is longer than I like but still enjoyable.
    Blade : Personna SS PTFE (8) very sharp, great longevity, smooths out nicely + predictable.
    Soap : Ach Brito Lavanda cream, very nice mild lavender scent, excellent lather qualities. Lavender soaps give me some of the best irritation weeper free shaves have noticed over the years. Lavender oil qualities?
    Brush : Yaqi dandelion 24mm Cashmere synthetic, excellent lather generator, cloud like soft tips, nice scrubber + excellent lather painter.
    Pre shave : (Dedicated Cashmere synthetic)Brush wash whole face with CeraVe hand bar cleanser with a dollop of clear Aloe Vera on the cleaned beard area.
    Prep : Cold water rinse after each pass of 2 + pickups. WTG + ATG + pickups.
    Post shave : Ach Brito Lavanda with witch hazel + a dollop of CeraVe moisturizing lotion(scentless).

    Any worries about its looks, are quickly dispelled when you have this Razor in your hand. Actually feels good and is very manoeuvrable, resist any urge to use pressure and a top class finish is achievable every time.

    Alpha Syn 28mm
    MWF
    Claymore Evolution
    Feather Proguard ( 2 )
    Puig Quorum A/S Lotion

    My first use of a Proguard in this version of The Claymore that takes most Blades. I find it very smooth but also efficient. I had a most satisfying Shave and managed to clear away even the usual stubborn ares of growth, and am left with a bit of a “ Face Stroker”.

    It's always fun taking the Schick type C1 out for a shave.

    P & B Spitfire
    ER “ Streamline “
    Gem S/S ( 6 )
    P & B Spitfire A/S splash

    Am afraid the blade may be off a bit, as the usual quality finish that I get with this Razor is below par.

    Omega 11126 boar
    Hampshire Wool Fat soap
    ER 1924
    Gem S/S ( 6 )
    GB Grey Flannel A/S Lotion

    A much nicer Shave today, quite smooth with a good close finish, confirms that the blade in The “ Streamline “ was definitely off yesterday.

    RR 400. SE Plissoft noir
    Officina Artigiana
    Claymore Evolution
    Feather Proguard ( 2 )
    Officina Artigiana A/S Lotion

    As I was due to be out for the day officiating, my obvious choice was The Evo.It feels like cheating a bit, using a Razor that is unlikely to bite and which delivers a quality finish that last throughout the day.
