    After yesterday's enjoyable if somewhat mediocre shave I was hoping for better things from the OC.
    It was as smooth and perhaps slightly more efficient and I do prefer the OC but I have razors as smooth and more efficient.
    I will stick with the OC for the rest of the pass around to see if it becomes more efficient with use.
    Did I mention it was stunning?
    Happy Shaving one and all.

    I bought this cream last summer because I like Simpson creams and wanted a nice summery scent.
    At first I was underwhelmed by the scent, and was just beginning to get into it when the weather changed.
    I remembered it last night and I'm very glad I did.
    Happy Shaving one and all.

    Final go with the Tatara and although it's beautiful I find it a bit mild for my liking.
    I don't mind the fact that you can't use other handles, I really like the handle and the whole balance of the razor.
    As I disassemble and assemble a razor each time I use it I don't like the long thread on the handle, petty I know, but it annoys me.
    Happy Shaving one and all.
