    Only 3 shaves in but the Blackland Vector is rapidly becoming a favorite. With a Schick Proline I'm getting some remarkably comfortable, close and long lasting shaves. Perfect level of efficiency for me.

    I have had a number of good Shaves this week with my Hawk V3- OC. However none to match todays, for being smooth and comfortable with an ultra close finish. This is my number one Travel Razor, and may well when other Razors get too heavy become the overall No1.

    Took a chance on this one. Razor is similar in design to another razor I own which is a Shavezee. Apparently from my research they never did sell any of these. They were given away with various items in 1913/14 but never caught on since they only lasted until 1914. So is this one of those forgotten razors that should have caught on but didn't? The answer is no. It shaves okay but not very close. It is smooth and can tug hair at the same time and is almost impossible to cut yourself with this thing. With that said trying to adjust the blade for more exposure should improve the closeness of shave since on this shave I used it with the blade pushed back as far as it could go.

    I rather hurried todays Shave along, a mistake as the blade though not tuggy was obviously past its best. The overall quality of finish was OK but not as good as that of recent ones.

    The Pharaoh's Dreamsicle Shave Soap face-lathered well with my Jayaruh #408 Two-band Badger Brush. Two passes and touch ups with the 1907 Gem Jr. Lather Catcher with a Vintage Gem Cutlery SE blade gave me a close, comfortable shave. After a cold water rinse I finished off with Pharaoh's Dreamsicle AS. I am clean, smooth, and refreshed...
