A very rare outing for the ATT SE-G,which is bit on the mild side for me. I did vary the angle a bit more than usual especially around the neck, and think that the finish was better than I normally get with this Razor.
Does ATT still make that head?
Do not think they do
Cold Water Rinse
Vintage Life's Morning TOST
Personna Half DE
PSC Caffeinated After Shave Balm
The Vintage Life's Morning TOST Shave Soap face-lathered well with the Oscar11 synthetic brush. Two passes and touch ups with the Russian ShaDE razor with a Personna Half DE blade gave me a close, comfortable shave. After a cold water rinse I finished off with PSC Caffeinated After Shave Balm. I am clean, smooth, and refreshed...
Great Photography Matt!
SOTD, Feb 14th,2020- Still enjoying my Oneblade Core and still having some fun with it, today I experimented with a shim(.005 thousands of a inch thickness taped to the modified gem blade) it's a bit crude but effective. You can not get a closer shave with out potato peeling the skin. (excellent shave). The closer the shave the greater the chances of possible irritation as a rule of thumb IMO. I did notice a increase in blade feel because of larger blade gap with slight aggression & efficiency increase but nothing serious to worry about. But I enjoy just the regular shave with no adjustment to blade just as much. All my razors go through a gauntlet of testing & if I like the results it stays in rotation-(2 pass,3 pass,shim if possible,buffing,J-hooking & Gillette slide or Oneblade slide .)
Razor : One blade Core 2nd version- MFG 2018>
Blade : Gem SS PTFE modified (8) with a .005 tapped shim piggy backed on lower half.
Soap : Razorock "What the Puck" orange citrus bergamot scent.
Brush: Razorock Plissoft 24mm.
Pre-shave: Brush wash the face with CeraVe hand bar soap + A dollop of clear Aloe Vera gel on beard area.
Prep: cold water rinse after each pass of 3.
Post shave: Razorock blue barber with witch hazel + Nivea Men balm.
Results: CCS,DFS,BBS + no irritation + no weepers =
Have some great shaves!
Thank you, Ron.
Schick I2v4, Schick Proline B-20, shave 5
Beard buster was used today after not shaving since Saturday. I wanted to go a little longer but today was one of those better to be clean shaven days. Beard Buster made short work of 5 days growth with a BBS finish. It worked so well I should I have used light pressure since I nicked myself up pretty good on the first pass not knowing what to expect. This razor is up there as one of the best razors I own for sure after today. I need to put my Clog Pruff Peerless to the test next see if it can handle 5 days of growth as easily as this razor does.
Valentine's day love. This is one of my best shaving razors. It would definitely be a difficult decision but if I could only have one razor this would most likely be it.
Great razors! These 2 particular Schicks along with a couple others are special to me as I inherited them from my Dad who passed away back in 1991.
Thanks for sharing! The J1 in these photos was inherited from my great uncle.

Though I am a Daily Shaver and look forward to a shave, for some reason held back a little and the quality of the finished Shave was not quite up to scratch.
