    RazoRock 400.SE-Plissoft noir
    P & B Pall Mall
    RazoRock Hawk V3-OC, HD handle
    Schick Proline [ 3 ]
    Massimo Dutti A/S Lotion

    I am surprised at how quickly I have got quite familiar with the Hawk V3, I am probably lucky that I always Shave with a light touch asI imagine it might well bite if too heavy handed. Another Shave without any trouble,and a splendid close all round finish. I think One more Shave with Razor, and get back to my scheduled rotation.

    Cold Water Rinse
    Tabac Shave Soap
    Jayaruh #408 2-band Badger
    Schick G4
    Personna
    CWR
    Tabac ASB

    The Tabac Shave Soap face-lathered well with my Jayaruh #408 Two-band Badger Brush. Two passes and touch ups with the Schick G4 with a Personna blade gave me a close, comfortable shave. After a cold water rinse I finished off with Tabac ASB. I am clean, smooth, and refreshed...

    Gem heavy flat top aka G-bar, gem ptfe stainless blade, shave 5
    gb.jpg

    It has been awhile since I've used one of these razors. Part of the reason was I didn't know how to use these flat top razors correctly. Even on this shave I still wanted to angle to the razor in a little instead of riding the cap flat on the middle portion. With that said the result was still excellent, better than most mild razors with an almost BBS finish but not as good as the later Gem Contour and Contour II razors for closest shave with the same degree of mildness to the shave. If I use this razor again tomorrow I'll try to ride the cap fully flat to compare.

    Menthol Mayhem Monday
    Gillette /Valet Autostrop VC4
    Feather FHS-10
    DS Cosmetics tuxedo
    Stirling lemon chill

    Good morning gents.First use this morning with the Gillette/Autostrop VC4.the last of the valet autostrop line.loaded the just arrived Feather fhs-10 blade .A little fiddly but followed instruction and pushed the blade back until it aligned with the pins,closed the side clasps and pulled the lever to lock it in place.Made sure everything was tight,inline and blade corners covered.
    Started with a proper goopy slick Stirling lather,folding in on itself and super shiny.
    First pass-started the north to south at the sideburn riding the cap as normal until i felt it cutting,there's the sound ,like buttering toast to quote a fellow member here.did the n/s pass all over .quite even stubble left like the first pass of a tech razor.so i am keeping the angle somewhat consistent.
    Second pass-lower neck start rh side as always for the south to north,easily finds it's angle when pulled upwards on the neck and followed to the sideburns with short light strokes on both sides,the usual,maintaining the angle on the cheeks.Buttering toast again..
    Plus pass-not much left to be honest,usual couple of spots on the left lower neck but they were gone in short order.Didn't get cocky or go overboard.
    result- an honest near bbs.very close shave.liberal splash of lemon chill aftershave ,nice burn then cold..I shaved a little high on rh cheek to get a stray so minor warmth there.No weepers or real issues.I did apply a little nivea balm for just in case as the lemon chill hides everything.
    Summary-this is a cool steampunk looking solid well balanced razor.it has the charm of a farm implement.It would be fiddly to remove the blade and store it so i will use it for 1 or 2 more shaves then bin the blade.I got 30 feathers locally for a good price so no $$ wasted,I really didn't know if this razor was a display piece or not.definitely usable and the second of my non de gillettes,the other being a late 60s twin injector model.I will try that one at a later date.Am i happy?,you bet.Will it replace my beloved de's? no .but it's a cool piece of history and will stay in my rotation.I like that the Feather blades just drop in,not interested in modifying stuff.Thank you all for tuning in and have a fabulous day..happy Mayhem..:)

    Williams Wed 20th May

    Simpson Chubby 1/ Maggards 2band
    Williams Mug soap
    RR S/S Hawk V3-OC, HD handle
    Schick Proline [ 4 ]
    Williams Aqua Velva A/S Lotion

    I just have to try every new to me Razor with the Williams soap. Well it works very well , avery nice Shave with a super close all round finish. I have now completed 8 back to back shaves with this Razor and apart from one blip [ my fault ] all have been trouble free, which may give an indication of how good I think this Razor is. Just have to try it out with a cream before moving on.
