    Someone forgot to tell the weather it's autumn, any excuse to break out this tallow offering from Sudsy Soapery and the 4711.
    Happy Shaving one and all.

    My second go with the Model 2, tried an injector size blade this time and it's still quite a lot more aggressive than the M3 with a lot more blade feel.
    My skin is smooth but slightly uncomfortable.
    Happy Shaving one and all.

    This is a very mild little razor but as my last shave was only about 15 hours ago with the Cobra, it was up to the job.
    Happy Shaving one and all.

    The scent of this soap is exactly what the doctor ordered on this wet and windy Sunday morning, and was rounded off nicely with the equally warming aroma of the Pashana.
    Happy Shaving one and all.

    Bigelow & Parkin Travel Razor. It looks like this razor has 2 blade exposure settings assuming the plates close correctly still which they should.
