    Hampshire Wool Fat soap
    ER 1912 Bathroom Set
    Gem S/S [ 3 ]
    GB Grey Flannel A/S Lotion.

    I knew that with this Razor I would have a good Shave, but had not factored in this Soap. This artisan produced lanolin soap really helps a Razor perform, so the Shave was very pleasant, and I was rewarded with another Top Notch finish.Have now decided that 3 Shaves per Razor will help me get through rotations quicker than I have been doing recently.

    I had the best shave yet with the Bunny V3 by @twhite which he is loaning me. It was already shaving quite well. However before today's shave I discovered that the blade wasn't quite seated right. I carefully adjusted the blade alignment and Wow, this razor shaves wonderfully now.
    Also this was a much better lather from what I've previously gotten with Michael's wool fat. I believe this is do to our water softener finally getting fixed and the water being much softer now. So far all the soaps I've used since the fix have lathered better and been slicker.

    This lovely shiny Micromatic OC is a recent acquisition. It replaces my other OC version purely on aesthetics as that one has significant plate loss on the head.

    RR 400. SE Plissoft noir
    Ach Brito Mogno
    Ever Ready 1924
    Gem S/ S ( 1 )
    Alcolado Glacial A/S splash

    A bit more of a challenging Shave today with the 1924 after the relatively mild 1912. I dont think that I have used The 1924 with a fresh blade on Two days growth before. I am rather pleased at the quality of finish attained without any problems.

    Coated work very well and are should be smoother because they are teflon coated.
    If you do not want to buy 200 blades I use Connaught shaving UK because I live up north and no one supplies Gem blades and shipping out of the UK is reasonable, They are the Gem Personna SS PTFE blades and are made in USA and are very good IMO. Good folks to deal with, takes about 2-3 weeks.

    Two beautiful Schicks for today's shave. Thanks again to @twhite and @mayer57619 for lending me the razors. I definitely want to find one of each to add to my collection. Hopefully in the near future.
