    The De Vergulde Hand Shaving Soap face-lathered well with Jayaruh #4 High Mtn. Badger Brush. Two passes and touch ups with the 1902 Kampfe Brothers/Star Lather Catcher razor with a Personna GEM SS PTFE blade gave me a close, comfortable shave. After a cold water rinse I finished off with Lucky Tiger AS. I am clean, smooth, and refreshed...

    Sunday Schick Shave, Nov08th, 2020- I like to use my Schick razors on Sundays. Excellent razors IMO!

    Razor: Schick 500 injector with Hydro-magic feature- Mfg 1957-64, unisex type razor- handle is my longest of my collection(5 3/8" length).
    Blade: Personna SS PTFE(9) excellent blade, Very sharp, great longevity & smooths out nicely over time. Personna steel is amazing when you can leave it out for months and when it comes up again for rotation and finding it has not degraded the cutting edge.
    Soap: Tabac- it has a mild flowery clean scent with excellent lather qualities and has been around for decades tell the story of success.

    Brush: Yaqi tuxedo knot 24 mm(Sagrada Familia)- named after the famous cathedral in Barcelona Spain, Excellent lather creator with cloud like soft tips.
    Pre Shave: Brush wash my whole face with CeraVe hand bar cleanser + a dollop of clear Aloe Vera on cleaned beard area.
    Prep: cold water rinse after each pass of 2 + pickups. WTG + ATG + pickups.
    Post shave: Razorock Emperor with witch hazel + a dollop of Nivea balm.
    Results: CCS,DFS,BbS +minor irritation + 1 blemish weeper=[​IMG] excellent shave with my Schick 500 injector.

    Mon 9th November

    Muhle Silvertip A-21mm
    Cyril Salter Solid Soap
    Schick N3
    Schick S/S Twin-Japan [ 9 ]
    Pitralon Original A/S Lotion

    A bit of a treat today using the N3 fitted with a Twin Blade. There are mixed views on the The Twin Blade, but they really do work well on my "Need to Shave Daily" Beard. Today was ultra smooth and I had no problems getting rid of the usual stubborn areas of growth. Shame they are now so expensive but I am fortunate to have a small stache, which should last some time as I only use them infrequently.

    Had a decent shave this morning. The blade was fading, this Gem 1912 usually shaves especially well. I binned the blade after only 6 shaves.
    I particularly like the adjustable handle by @twhite. It will be missed when it gets sent on its way. The Wickham 1912 Irish Fern has become one of my favorite soaps. It will be missed when it runs out, as I believe they quit making it.
