    No, a few years ago I decided to dump my gifted small bottle of Clubman. The drain literally gave off whiffs of it for what seemed like 2 weeks. Defied logic, actually.

    Greetings,

    Early morning shave,

    last outing of the Gillette Nacet which has been consistently good with every shave throughout the week, today again was no exception i feel as though this blade could give me another 2 shaves at least, but i will retire it as four close error-free shaves is enough for me from any DE blade....The Gillette Nacet is another blade i that have haven't added to my blade rotation for quite a while and i have completely forgotten how good these blades are...Out of the Russian blades i've revisited so far the Nacet are my favourite providing a superb trio of smoothness efficiency, and longevity...A great blade.

    A Enjoyable 3 pass + pick ups close comfortable shave with no errors to report...Finishing to the shave off with a generous splash of Denim Original ASL.

    My face is feeling super smooth & smelling divine.;)

    Keep safe, and enjoy your day ladies & gentlemen.:cool:

    Razor: Wilkinson Sword Pall Mall
    Blade: Gem (1)
    Brush: Rubberset 400/Cashmere
    Soap: Baron's Choice 1508.5 Project
    AS 1: Humphrey's Alcoholado Maravilla 70
    AS 2: Ethos Fresh Lime

    Consecutive Daily Shaves - # 925

    1 of the razors from a recent Lot purchase was this Pall Mall that cleaned up well and they don't make them like these tanks anymore. Solid and functional art. Loaded with a modern Gem blade until I can get some of these and the Empire blades honed to use. Got a nice enjoyable and comfortable shave. Just a little grab on the chin from relaxing my skin stretching but sealed quickly at the end of the shave. Glad to get this set with the others to try also. Menlo pass around razor is heading this way in the mail for I believe tomorrow so that will be up for Saturday I think. Have a great day guys and gals !!

    May 20 - tried out the Furbo Blu vintage shaving soap I pulled from the traveling mystery box a few weeks ago. 20 seconds of brush loading and I had more than enough slick dense lather to accomplish my 2 pass shave this morning.

    Using the same brush and razor and blade allows me to “experiment” with soaps and creams and only have one variable to worry about.
