    Here are some pictures. I put a Pal blue carbon behind the Gem blade to show the difference in n size better. Hope they help.

    I had a super comfortable shave with the Henckels Rapides today. Well once I switched out the Pal blue carbon I started with for a 5th use Gem SS PTFE. I know some people love the carbon blades but they just don't do it for me.
    I'm continuing to use the Dragon's Blood soap a friend made me. The lather was better today. I used the Puck directly on wet skin an then face lathered. I also experimented a little with making a bowl lather with the soap and which hazel instead of water. The results were interesting but that would get expensive to do often.

    I really like the look of that razor. Especially the burnt orange/copper head and the Baton style handle is really cool.

    After a rather off track Shave yesterday -using Gem MM with a Twin Blade, am back to normal today. A very nice Shave with this Schick which is a good choice for those wishing to try a Twin blade Shave, but are not keen on longer handled models.

    Soap: Tabac, nice mild flowery scent, great lather qualities.
    Brush: Yaqi 24mm Atlantis synthetic- excellent lather generator, cloud like soft tips, great backbone for scrub + great lather painter.
    Pre shave: Brush wash whole face with CeraVe hand bar cleanser + a dollop of clear aloe Vera gel on the cleaned beard area.
    Prep: Cold water rinse after each pass of 2 + pickups. WTG +ATG + pickups.

    Yeah I have 3 vintage Baton handles. 2 different black ones and a Red one. I really like them and hope to find a decent price on a dark blue one.

    Schick Type G Canadian made injector, vintage Schick Platinum plus blade, shave 4
    [​IMG] [​IMG]

    This razor has quickly become one of my favorites. It combines the sharpness of an American made E3 with the mildness of an American made G1 injector. If I never had another razor this one could be my daily driver with no complaints at all but it isn't and won't be since this is a hobby to me and not a marriage to a razor. It is also a certified beard buster taking over a weeks growth off like it wasn't there. End result BBS finish achieved.

    Stirling Baker Street
    Schick I1
    Schick I1
    Schick S/S Twin - Japan [ 2 ]
    Alcolado Glacial A/S Splash.

    Though I had Two days heavy growth this Razor /Blade combo was excellent. I have found out that slower measured strokes work best when using a Twin blade. Today with my little used Stirling soap the Shave was very satisfying as a truly close all round finish was attained without any fuss.
