    Razor: Everready Streamline 2nd Generation- Mfg 1949-53, upper mid range, light touch gives excellent results, I find it one of my harder razors to master. One of the nicest eye candy razors IMO.
    Blade: Gem Personna SS PTFE (6) excellent blade in all strengths that make a blade.
    Soap: Razorock Santa Maria del Fiore- nice mild Tabaco vanilla scent with excellent lather qualities.
    Brush: Razorock Noir 400 Plissoft syn- geat brush for scrubbing with soft tips reminds me of my Omega boar brush.
    Pre shave: Brush wash my whole face with CeraVe hand bar Cleanser + a dollop of clear Aloe Vera gel on beard area.
    Prep: Cold water rinse after each pass of 2 + pickups. WTG + ATG + pickups.
    Post shave: Witch Hazel with a dollop of AVON True Gent balm.
    Results: CCS,DFS,BBS + no irritation + no weepers = [​IMG] Excellent shave with my ER 2nd Gen Streamline razor. One of those days you are not aiming for a BBS and it it just happens.

    Thanks! Yeah, Ariana & Evans is the retail arm of the business, so it's more reserved and classy. The Club is the one that tries to be edgy.

    Even though mild it does deliver the goods once you know how to use these razors. BBS finish achieved.

    ER !912-Bathroom Set
    Gem S/S [ 2 ]
    Floid Vigoroso A/S Lotion

    This 1912 stepped into the breach,as the blade on the intended Razor was not good.Funny how some blades from the same pack turn out to be duffers. Still all ended up well, with a pretty good finish.

    Yesterday I binned my Shave with The Streamline , as the relatively little used blade was was not at all good. Today with a fresh blade all was as it should be, a good Shave and great finish was gained. However, as others will know a Shave with this Razor requires a light touch and great care.

    C.V. Heljestrand Wedge

    The Speick Shaving Cream face-lathered well with Jayaruh #414 Brush. Two passes and touch ups with the C.V. Heljestrand razor with a C.V. Heljestrand Wedge blade gave me a close, comfortable shave. After a cold water rinse I finished off with Family Dollar Old Spice. I am clean, smooth, and refreshed...

    Thank you, @brit . "Ferox" is actually one of Barrister and Mann's oldest fragrances. They simply brought it back for a limited release in their "Soft Heart Series" base. This base was one of the many iterations of test soaps that ultimately borne the final "Excelsior" base. This "PP-8" base as it was denoted, was favored by many of the testers, but it was discarded because Barrister and Mann was striving for a firmer base that would last longer. Despite this, the "PP-8" base achieved cult status as it is truly a remarkable performer (some would say it outshines Excelsior). As a result, they periodically do an extremely limited run of this base that's now formally called "Soft Heart Series". Certainly, it's softer than what Barrister and Mann typically puts out, but it's not a cream.

    Great shave this morning. There was A LOT of blade feel. I thought I might end up with some irritation. However the finish was very smooth with no irritation.
