    Ever since you posted that razor in another thread, I’ve had that song from “Beauty And The Beast “ stuck in my head.

    Stirling Mentholated Pre-Shave Soap
    Schick Injector H1 "The Hussy"
    Personna blade
    Doug Korn Stubby (35mm, Carrier Class)
    Italian Barber Amici
    Stirling Glacial Lemon Chill PSB

    First shave with The Hussy. The head design and feel reminds be a lot of The Bunny, or The Bunny reminds me a lot of The Hussy. The rectangular handle was a little awkward on the XTG pass but otherwise felt great. Three passes left me just short of BBS. I finished off with some Stirling Glacial lemon Chill PSB for my daily face freeze. I will have to scrape the remaining Amici from the sides of the tin and redeposit them in the middle for its last shave. Have a great day my friends!

    My youngest (18) had his first vintage wet shave today. I went easy on him and lent him an I1 with a NOS twin blade. “These really do shave closer, don’t they?” was the verdict. :eatdrink047:

    Hot water preparation
    Castle & Forbes Lavender Shaving Cream
    Shavemac 2-band Silvertip Badger
    Schick Black Handled I1
    NOS Schick Twin Blad (3)
    Thayers Rose Petal Witch Hazel

    Happy shaving - Karl

    Beautiful razors!!!
    There is a good reason the bunny feels similar to the Hussy. Beautiful razor!

    Your just an awesome Dad!!!

    My Williams Wednesday shave. Vintage soap with a horse brush. Used my favorite 1912 with The Veg. Ahhhhhhh.

    RazoRock Syn. 22mm
    Cyril Salter Solid soap
    Supply V2- No3 Plate.
    Schick Proline [ 5 ]
    Pitralon Polar A/S Lotion

    I get decent Shaves from the Supply but feel that I have to work quite hard to get there, in comparison to my larger AC/SE. It does shave very smoothly and I imagine it would suit those wishing to go SE for the first time.

    Proraso Pre Shave
    Soap Commander Renewal
    Jayaruh #287
    Pal Injecto-Matic
    Schick Proline B20
    CWR
    Thayers Lemon WH
    Barbasol

    I started off with Proraso Pre Shave. The Soap Commander Renewal Shaving Soap face-lathered well with the Jayaruh #287 brush. I did two passes with the Pal Injecto-Matic Razor with a Schick Proline B20 blade and ended up with a close, comfortable shave. After a cold water rinse, I finished off with Thayer's Lemon WH and then Barbasol AS. I am clean, smooth, and refreshed...

    The LaToja Stick would make a good everyday soap imo, four days of use and my skin is doing grand.
    Happy Shaving one and all.

    Vulfix 404
    Lea Classic soap
    Hawk V1 + Windrose Handle
    Schick Proline [ 7 ]
    Lea Classic A/S Lotion

    Though I am not a great fan of the lighter AC/SE the satisfaction of getting a good Shave with them is quite rewarding. A no rush approach is best and I use very short strokes to do initial clearance. I find that the heavy vary-grip handle allows me to use the extra weight to use the very light / no pressure strokes essential to getting a good close all round finish. Pleased to say that today the Shave was not only trouble free but the finish was pretty top notch too.

    Yesterday :

    [​IMG]

    Preparing blade for a more comfortable and efficient shaving.
    50 crossings on linen canvas side.
    200 crossing son leather side.

    Today :

    [​IMG]

    I hope blade will be more comfortable and efficient.
    I just now will test it with another french razor.

    One hour later:

    Shaved and DFS in 3 steps !:happy108:

    The blade was not very confortable and efficient on the first step.
    But it was better after.
    And I was able to go up ATG.
    Not confortable on shaving, but not burning after.
    No blood, no irritations.
    I think it could be better with more crossings on paddle.
    Before next shaving: 100 crossings on linen canvas side - 400 crossings on leather side.

    Good morning friends. Wonderful three pass shave today with the Schick N1 fitted with a twin blade. I can't believe i haven't used my Speick shave cream for this long. It's fantastic! I am smooth and refreshed. Enjoy your day friends. ☺️

    I1 injector today as I follow through my collection. Tomorrow I will begin a period of time with the Supply injector that is on loan to me. I'll send it back but have an extended period of time to give it a trial. Looking forward to that.

    Have a great day!
