    I find the Treet blade and the R2 to be a brilliant combination, giving an incredibly smooth shave and both did their part in getting my week off to a flying start.
    Happy Shaving one and all.

    Sorry no pictures
    I have been using a
    Phoenix Bakelite Open Comb Slant with a Feather blade on the face daily changing blades every other shave. I have other new razors to try out, but getting such great results, not sure I want to go to another razor.
    Anyone else using this combo for a daily driver??

    This is a fantastic little razor, well balanced, and skates across the skin, mowing down all in its path.
    Happy Shaving one and all.

    Now back in the US, first shaves are with my newly arrived and heretofore unused L'Essor differential open comb DE. Gorgeous razor, aggressive as the French can be, very very close shave with the Supermax BDT.

    As there has never been a thread here on this razor I'll create one.

    With only about 16hrs growth a mild razor was just the thing.
    Have a great weekend everyone.
