    Razor: Gillette New long comb with ball end handle-Mfg 1930's, mid range, Canadian variant. Nice feeling razor IMO.
    Blade: Gillette silver blue (6) Excellent blade, Sharp & Smooth, one of my favorite of DE blades.
    Soap: Williams mug soap- great soap when applied a little more pastier than some croaps & hard soaps. Reasonable slickness.
    Brush:Yaqi tuxedo knot 24mm with black marble handle-excellent brush for lathering and cloud like soft tips. Very enjoyable brush.
    Pre shave: Brush wash whole face with CeraVe hand bar cleanser + a dollop of clear Aloe Vera gel on cleaned beard area.
    Prep: Cold water rinse after each pass of 2 + pick ups. WTG + ATG + pickups.
    Post shave: Pinauld Clubman after shave with witch hazel + a dollop of Nivea balm.
    Results:CCS,DFS,BBS + no irritation + 1 blemish weeper= [​IMG] Excellent shave with my Gillette New long OC & GSB.

    Good morning Gary, I was on another thread and we where talking Williams mug soap and so I take it out every once in a while and to see if it is still working the way it should and it did a good job for me on protection, not my favorite soap but its OK. Have a great day.

    Razor: Gillette old type with a tech fat handle-Mfg in the 1920's, to brass this head that much prior owners must of shaved 10,000 times >?The person who had this last before me had paper wedged in handle, so his technique was unique, squeeze & stroke![​IMG]
    Blade: Gillette 7 oClock Black- I enjoy this blade for it's smoothness, similar to the GSB without the wax spots.
    Soap: Taylor of old bond street Sandalwood- 1st tub used up, love the scent they have mastered by TOBS. Good lather qualities.
    Brush: Yaqi Rainbow 26 mm brown whiskers- good brush to use to clean the last of my Sandal wood cream, excellent brush.
    Soft tips with good backbone & good lather creator.
    Pre shave: Brush wash whole face with CeraVe hand bar cleanser, + a dollop of clear Aloe Vera gel on cleaned beard area.
    Prep: cold water rinse after each pass of 2 + pickups. WTG + ATG + pickups.
    Post shave: Proraso red Sandal wood with witch hazel + a dollop of Nivea balm.
    Results: CCS,DFS,BBS + no irritation + no weepers =[​IMG]Different type of shave with this vintage Gillette old type razor.

    Thanks Gary, The old type are a different feel to face, I like my New long comb better, Gillette had to start some where through its evolution of Razors.
