    If you would have said Sean Connery in From Russia with Love I possibly would have had the most heterosexual wet dream of my life tonight!! But still super cool indeed.

    Schick Proline ( 8 )
    Williams Aqua Velva A/S Lotion

    Very hard not to have a good Shave, as I got a superb lather from the Willian’s. Probably one of the best Shaves I have had with this combo. As I have too many AC/SEs I was toying with the idea of passing this Razor on, after today am having second thoughts.

    Williams Mug Soap
    Jayaruh #220 Synthetic
    Ever-Ready 1914 Army Patent Pending

    The Williams Mug Soap face-lathered well with Jayaruh #220 Synthetic Brush. Two passes and touch ups with the Ever-Ready 1914 Army razor with a Personna GEM SS PTFE blade gave me a close, comfortable shave. After a cold water rinse I finished off with Aqua Velva Iced Blue AS. I am clean, smooth, and refreshed...

    Schick N1, Schick II twin blade, shave 16

    Haven't shaved in a few days and found out these blades do not work well with thick and long stubble. First pass I used what I happened to have loaded with a blade which was the Razorock Hawk V3 with the open comb plate. That took out the stubble like a champ and then I finished up using the N1 for the subsequent passes. It is a shame these double edge injector blades are so expensive and hard to source except from Japan. They are by far the best smooth and efficient blades bar none in razors designed for them. If they were more prevalent I would bet there would be a lot more people using injectors on a regular basis. End result BBS finish achieved.

    RR.400. SE-Plissoft noir
    Arko Stick - grated
    Alu. Hawk + Ikon S/S handle
    Feather Pro [ 5 ]
    Tuff Red A/S Lotion

    A less than satisfactory Shave today, as obviously judging by the finish on the RHS side of my face, I may well have rushed things before moving on to the other side, where I obviously spent enough care and concentration on getting the desired finish.

    Omega 11126 boar
    Ach Brito Mongp Soap Bar
    ES Claymore V1
    Schick Proline ( 8 )
    GB Grey Flannel A/S Lotion

    A very satisfying Shave today with The Claymore, a heavy Razor that responds to a very light touch.It really worked well today with a new to me soap, which I applied to my face and then whipped up a copious and effective lather. The Shave was hassle free, and the resulting finish was extremely close all round.
