    First Day of the Christmas Season, Everyone. I went with M. A. Space Soap Christmas 2019 and the GameChanger .84 plate series.

    Prep: Hot Shower and Bloom/Lather Building Water
    Soap: M. A. Space Soap Christmas 2019
    Razor: RazoRock GC .84 Series(Jaws, OC, and SB)/Merkur Mustache and Eyebrow Razor
    Blade: Kai (6)/Merkur Mustache and Eyebrow Blade (No Idea)
    Brush: The Alpha Outlaw Boar
    AS: Brut Musk

    If you haven't tried M. A. Space Soap it is well worth the money. The owner is also working to help with the vaccine to the current crisis.

    I’ve been on a DOC kick as of late, I’ve been using my razor rock 400 with it.
    I originally felt the razor to be aggressive, or rather I felt it to be harsh. But now I think I may have been heavy handed. I feel like the razor’s edge is very exposed, which is ok if you treat it with very soft hands.
    My last three shave have been very nice.
    Still not as proficient with it as I am with the Grand. They are definitely two different beasts, although they get lumped into the same category.

    I like most of their products also and the prices are worth the gamble to take on the odd dud, yet others might enjoy that certain product that a person really does not click with. Good folks to deal with IMO also.

    Not sure how many Razorock folks who enjoy their razors, just thought I should mention that the Lupo 2nd generation with different variants of gap and base plates are available finally to day. I order the SS Lupo .72 baseplate with the scalloped safety bar today.
    To me a scalloped safety bar is superior to a smooth one IMO.
