    Razor: Razorock SLOC- Mfg 2018> excellent razor paired with a Kai SS blade IMO, Very smooth combination & Carefree shave also.
    Blade: KAI SS (1) Excellent blade, Smooth & sharp + .009" extra wide than standard for better blade feel.
    Soap: Razorock Santa Marie del Fiore Firenze, Top tier soap in my collection with excellent scent and lather qualities!
    Brush: Yaqi lucky dice tuxedo knot 26 mm- great lather creator with back bone & those cloud like soft tips.
    Pre shave: Brush wash my whole face with CeraVe hand bar cleanser + a dollop of clear Aloe Vera gel on the cleaned beard area.
    Prep: cold water rinse after each pass of 2 + pickups. WTG + ATG + pickups.
    Post shave: Pinaud Clubman with witch Hazel + a dollop of AVON "true gent" balm. I like their balm.
    Results: CCS,DFS,BBs + no irritation + no weepers= [​IMG] Excellent shave with my RR SLOC razor paired with a KAI ss blade.

    Don't remember the model, but was only about $15. It's well made, a little heavy and slighty aggressive.

    Leresche no 901, Bic Chrome Platinum, shave 5
    [​IMG]

    Vintage French made razor. The 901 is an unbranded version made by Leresche for third party resellers. Unlike their regular models it is not made to the same specifications being much milder and the open comb teeth rough on the edges. The comb is not very pleasant feeling when shaving but it is not sharp enough to leave scratch marks or break skin. If you use a shallow angle it minimizes the problem but it also minimizes the razors ability to cut hair closely unlike at a steep angle because of how mild it is. End result a BBS finish achieved but it took some work to get there unlike with a standard Leresche.
