    No problem, I'll imagine it.

    Next "new" razor:

    Ikon 102 Slant w/ Maggard SS handle
    Jayaruh #242 brush
    Astra SP blades
    Pre de Prevence #63 soap

    This slant doesn't twist the blade like some slants do. Instead the head is tilted. Is a very efficient razor, always a great shave. [​IMG]

    It can be a pain keeping the razor so shiny. But it's worth the effort. ;)

    Every three days I switch razors. Keeping with the slant I'll be using the Merkur 39c "Sledgehammer". Unlike the previous Ikon 102, this razor twists the blade. The 102 is efficient, but not overly so. I don't think you could cut yourself with the 102 if you tried. The Merkur, on the other hand requires attention to your technique or it could bite you. The brush is a Jayaruh Special Edition (#6) for TOST. GSB blade isn't my favorite, but a nice close shave, nonetheless. [​IMG]

    Razor - merkur 23C
    Blade - Feather
    Brush - Vlasta T400 boar
    Soap - DR Harris Marlborough
    Post - medicated witch hazel
    A/S - Avon Bayrum

    This shave was awesome. The blade and
    Razor combo is fantastic. I switched out the handle as I like this one better than the extremely long thin handle this originally came with. The aftershave is much sweeter smelling than the pinaud version. I was BBS smooth.


    Today’s shave

    Razor - de89
    Blade - personna blue
    Brush - custom cedar by jayaruh
    Soap - mystic waters yellow rose

    Another great shave. Bbs smooth but not as smooth as I would have liked

    Razor - Muhle R89
    Brush - Whipped Dog Silvertip
    Soap - Pre de Prevence 63

    This razor is extremely similar to the Edwin Jager DE89, if not exactly the same. I find the Muhle a bit milder. Or it could just be me...[​IMG]

    Final NEW razor for the month. This is the first DE take I ever purchased, in 2014. The EJ DE89 is a classic, smooth, comfortable razor that's hard to beat.

    Great pics this month everyone![​IMG]

    Razor - Yaqi DLC
    Blade - Astra
    Brush - Omega 48
    Soap- WSP Lavender
    Post - lavender witch hazel
    A/S - Lime sec

    A good shave last night. Started off fantastic but then something changed during the 3rd pass. I started getting irritation. The end result was I had to use another razor for the clean up. The dlc couldn’t get close enough

    I have the same problem with milder razors. It looks good though!

    i have to do an extra pass with my tech razors compared to my tto s. rarely need 3 passes with my ttos, minor touch ups. could still be a technique thing for me though..
