    I don't see anything special for this month going on (correct me if I missed it), so I'm thinking of using and posting my "new" razors. In my case "new" means a modern razor (not vintage). For anyone else wants to participate your "new" razor could be a Gillette NEW or an old razor that's just new to you. Whatever your fancy.

    So let's see some NEW razors!

    Here's my first offering. I love my long handle Merkur Progress and haven't used it for a while. On this adjustable razor my normal setting is about 2.5 to 3 which makes this razor very comfortable and very efficient. BBS almost every time. Not mild, but not aggressive, just right. The Pre de Prevence #63 is a great barbershop scented soap that lathers easily and that I find nice and slick. The small Simpson brush is one of my favorites.[​IMG]

    I play along with the modern razor definition. My Blackland Sabre Level 2. The razor is a modern razor using Gem blades.

    The Ming Shih is both new to me and a relatively new razor;

    Pretty darn good. I’m still trying to find the blade to go with it. The personna blue doesn’t shave well with it. The Voskhod does.

    This is an old razor new to me. It is an ER24. Today was my second shave with it. It was a very good shave. The razor is a little tricky to load, and I don't like the way it catches water in the cap, but once you get past that, it is a great shaver.

    My next new razor is another modern adjustable, the Parker Variant. It's design is much like Merkur Progress, but looks and feels a bit more refined, especially in rose gold.

    Razor- Parker Variant
    Blade- Astra SP
    Brush- Simpson pure bristle
    Soap- Sterling Electric Sheep
