    Blade: Chinese Schick
    Razor: Schick L1 injector
    Brush: Omega 10049 boar
    Lather: Mitchell's Wool Fat
    Post: Witch hazel, Fine American Blend aftershave
    WTG, touch-up

    Another nice shave with the L1 injector. I need to try some Twin blades one day. I have a couple of later models that would take them. In any event, smooth and comfortable with this combination.

    Have a great day!

    Okay, so now you've got me interested. I've heard of this baby before, but that razor is nowhere to be found! Not on eBay, etsy, anywhere! You're a lucky man to find one!

    Today I used my "new to me" Gem junior lather catcher. It was a close, comfortable and enjoyable shave!

    The lather catcher rides at a different angle than what I'm used to, but it just takes a matter of seconds to get the hang of it. Under the nose was interesting, but if you handle it like later Gems, you can easily get to that spot without any issues. I loaded up the junior with a modern Gem Personna blade and paired it with some Chiseled Face ghost town barber.

    I'll be sure to keep this razor in my rotation.

    Looks like I need one of Tom's brushes to properly accessorize. Too mild to be a real favorite but with a fresh Plus Platinum the PAL gets me where I need to go with some buffing. No irritation though. TOBS.[​IMG]

    First try of this soap and AS and it's fantastic. Great cushion and glide, easy to lather and the scent is wonderful. I'm impressed. Two easy passes this morning, barely missed the baby but the alum was completely silent. It's been almost 5 hours since I shaved and the scent is still going strong. Have a great day folks!

    Yup. I did my normal routine today and everything was back to normal. I was afraid I had lost my mojo.

    Great shave today. The Auto Strop vc1 is easily the most aggressive razor I own. The comb doesn't really do much.[​IMG]

    Thanks to @SharptoothC and @PLAla today was my first shave with arko, this stuff is great and I actually like the scent. Used my schick L 2 with personna blade, followed up with Lea aftershave ( what a/s goes with arko?). Can't believe I haven't tried this before, awesome shave.

    Awesome! Glad it worked. Thanks again to @SharptoothC for some deft enabling.

    I was glad to enable! Good, cheap shaves are awesome! And I've been the recipient of some pretty awesome enabling myself, so I am happy to pay it forward!

    Yup once you run one around the block you can not stay away.

    Have you used an OC micro matic? I bet you would like it too.

    That's a fantastic razor and one of the most underrated razors out there. I love the looks of that razor too! It's a real classic!

    With my 1912's and my Damaskeenes, I could be happy with just using those in my rotation.
