    Oh, I will respectively quibble and gently suggest the President is "somewhat mild." The weight alone makes it about as efficient as a Red Tip, but it is much smoother, at least with a Gillette yellow or Polsilver. IME. Smooth and handsome, like Cary Grant, :)

    Saturday Night Shave

    OSS clone on Muhle w/Nacet
    Col Conk Amber
    One Blaed synthetic
    Mixed witch hazel aftershave

    This OSS clone is really impressing me, it is very mild and smooth, but crazy efficient. I bought it on eBay for $4 and change.

    And Col Conk is a new favorite of mine. I wish they made a high menthol soap.

    Just an FYI, You see that hole in the middle of your brush? That is caused by the fibers being trapped when you splay the brush heavily while lathering. If you comb the brush out with a coarse toothed comb you can free the fibers and the brush will look like new again. I have to do this with my synthetics periodically to keep them looking and performing like new.

    Thanks! I thought it was just due course for a synthetic. It’s been so long since I had comb( head shaver for 10+ years) that I had to use one of my wife’s.

    Maggard’s V3M(mild) Muhle handle w/Nacet
    CC bayrum
    Tuxedo synthetic

    This new Maggard head is great. It’s very smooth and efficient, but more blade feel and not as forgiving as the clone I’ve been using the last few days.
