    Nice shave Perry! Good luck with the in-laws. I like my in-laws but they do make things awkward at times. I'm pretty sure they feel the same way about me.

    I dont think alot of people liked them. Probably weren't a top notch blade . Think they were Chinese made if I remember correctly.

    I have used the Rockwell blades in my safety razors and my Dovo shavette. I like them and always got a good shave with them. Really, it's a ymmv sort of thing.

    Are those same as Silver Blues?

    Same as I have . They claim they are better than the first batch with black. I think I gave my nephew the last of the 5 pack I had when he started wet shaving. Should look in the blade box and see if any there .

    :shocked003: Boy, this has been a rough day! Ok, well, so I will admit if you were a fan of the original Saturday Night Live it is definitely a must watch movie. It does have a great R&B soundtrack to it and it's classic John Belushi.

    Good Monday morning everyone!
    A chilly morning, even outside.

    20200120_055444.jpg 2 passes head and face, no issues.
    Used my Fernch razor with a desplined Personna GEM blade.
    It was sold to me as a Radium, but I think its an OBLYC .
    Regardless of what it is, it shaves almost as well as a MMOC, that's nice.

    Good morning

    Excellent shave to start the day! Three passes for near BBS. Nearly silent alum.

    Another terrific scent from PAA. I wish I was better at describing scents because this one is a winner. I'm thankful for all the choices made available by this soap maker and others out there. I'm also thankful to those that push the envelope with their soap bases and scent concoctions. What a great time to be a wet shaver.

    From PAA:

    Scent Profile: Sicilian Cedrat, Black Pepper, Sea Salt, Ambergris, Royal Hawaiian Sandalwood, Vetiver, White Musk & Animalic Musk.

    Have a great day!
