    Today I used my favorite open comb, a Joris loaded with a Sharp Star.

    Great thread, Clint!

    For OCtober, I used the Cooper MonoBilt for the first 5 shaves, with a Nacet and a 7 O’Clock SP and various software:

    On the weekend, I moved on to the NEW Short Comb, which I’ll use for a week as well:

    Got to say I’m pretty impressed with this razor, very smooth and efficient so far.
    Hopefully it’ll stay that way through all October, I might change blades during the month in order to change the shaving experience.

    Cold Water Wash
    Proraso Green
    Jayaruh #305
    Gem Damaskeene OC
    GEM Blue Star CS SE
    CWR
    Osage Rub

    My prep was just a cold water rinse. The Proraso Green Shaving Soap face lathered well with the Jayaruh #305 brush. I did two passes with the Gem Damaskeene OC Safety Razor with a GEM Blue Star CS SE blade and ended up with a close, comfortable shave. After a cold water rinse, I finished off with Granddad's AS. I am clean, smooth, and refreshed...

    Thank you! I love these Sheratons. I find them "mildly aggressive". They're smooth and comfortable.

    Just an ordinary user grade NEW OC LC Reissue. Though it might look worn and beat up it gives an excellent shave and it’s perhaps one of the easiest Gillette OC’s to cut your teeth on. Easy on the skin yet efficient to take care of a day or a few days worth of whiskers. Nice combination of smoothness and efficiency.....
