    It had a greasy coating on it out of the wrapper, so I cleaned the blade and then I stropped it. It got better over the first few shaves.

    I've never had much luck with the old Autostrop or Valet cutout ones. If the next one I try sort of works I'll try breaking it in then.

    I think modern blades are probably sharper than those vintage blades. I have 20 shaves with this Valet blade, but I am not sure it will make it to 43 shaves. I have a Personna blade that I have nursed to 42 shaves. I have it set aside because I got tired of shaving with it. I cleaned and palm stropped it after each shave.

    RazoRock Syn . 24mm
    P & B Spitfire
    PAL Injecto Matic
    Schick Proline [ 6 ]
    P & B Spitfire A/S Splash

    Could not access Razor planned for today as guests in the room. Used an Injecto Matic again, but a different version
    handlewise, but delivered an equally good close finish. So good that won't need a touch up when going out tonight.

    SE Sunday's Shave

    Cold Water Rinse
    Mitchell's Wool Fat Shave Soap
    Jayaruh #371 Badger/Boar
    1907 Gem Jr. Lather Catcher
    Vintage Gem Cutlery SE
    CWR
    Aqua Velva 5 in 1 ASB

    My prep was just a cold water rinse. The Mitchell's Wool Fat Shave Soap face lathered well with the Jayaruh #371 Badger/Boar brush. I did two passes with the 1907 Gem Jr. Lather Catcher Lather Catcher razor with a Vintage Gem Cutlery SE blade and ended up with a close, comfortable shave. After a cold water rinse, I finished off with Aqua Velva 5 in 1 ASB. I am clean, smooth, and refreshed...

    Thanks to @Boru62 I finally got a cake of MWF. What a great soap. Paired it with a Auto Strop for todays morning shave. Wonderful. The brush scuttle kept it nice and warm.
