    Smooth, efficient and moves across the slick Barrbarr lather nimbly, what more can you ask for from a razor?
    Happy Shaving one and all.

    Whilst shaving I got to wondering, how many things from modern department stores will look this good and perform this well after 70+ years?
    Happy Shaving one and all.

    I thought I'd carry on from yesterday and use a vintage OC DE and had another cracking shave.
    Although, yesterday's British Dept. Store offering was a tad more efficient and every bit as smooth, the New LC is a very decent bit of kit.
    Happy Shaving one and all.

    I normally use a mild razor on a Saturday morning due to Friday's evening shave but I thought I'd carry on with my vintage OC DE run.
    With the New Improved head I think Gillette have come pretty close to perfecting the DE OC.
    A two pass irritation free, DFS+ shave ensued, my skin is relaxed and I'm refreshed.
    Happy Shaving one and all.

    Man...I love the Smoking Hot Pineapple Art Work!! Now I'm really curious AND naive...Just what does "Smoking Hot Pineapple" mean?

    A lovely Sunday morning shave with my only TTO OC DE. It's a pretty smooth operator but, imo, not a patch on the original TTO, the MMOC .
    Still, it was a wonderful way to start a wet and grey day.
    Happy Shaving one and all.

    Thanks Lloyd! The scent of the soap is fresh grilled pineapple with a hint of smoke.
