    Have the Velva nearby, if you like the Derby & Feather........and have them mastered, the IP will leave you unimpressed

    rick I'll make ya SCream!

    Nuff said !
    I'll regift em if I ever sell off any booty.
    Thanks Joe.
    I like the Futur with the Derby just fine.....maybe I'll try a Feather in her but
    at a very low setting.

    Good idea. The weight of Futur demands that you go extra light until you get the hang of it. Once you trust the Futur then yuo can dial it up a few notches. I stuck it a 1 for a month when I first got it.

    You know how I like to use Slim....
    DIAL "9" Baby !!
    when I first got the Futur I went right for "6".
    BAD idea....
    This mutha demands some respect. Dialed back to 4 and now at 3.
    Tonight I'll float a Feather in her and try it at 1.
    My SS + Feather combo is a fave.
    Maybe this'll work out as well.

    Normally use blades for 3 days but got 5 days of great shaving with the Swedish Gillette with 4 different razors. (Milord, 54 SS, 55 SS Red Tip, 78 SS and back to the MIlord). Very nice blade.

    Bock Silvertip (always the same, I only have this one ;) )
    LeCoq 900 6/8 / Futur (4) + Gillette SuperSpeed
    Valobra Menthol SS :drool
    Weleda AS
    Anherb After Shave Conditioner

    Hattric Pure Sport EdT

    I recommend the Valobra to everyone. Nice lather, nice cooling, nice moisturizing.

    4.6/5 (The Gillette made a better result impossible)

    EDIT: Now hours later I recognized I have strong razor burn. The Gillettes I have are totally crab. I think I have to throw them away. Former I had Super Silver in another case. These were very good. The ones I have now are rubbish. Time for my Post-healer, the one for special needings: Neo Ballistol. Perhaps some of you know Ballistol as an oil for weapons. This is quite similiar, but a little different. Now I smell like a huntsman and my skin is getting better.
    Ps: It's a little cooling because there' a little mintoil in. Just like MENTHOL :rofl

    WTF. I just realized I put this in the wrong thread. My bad duders. Feel free to chastise me.

    And no, they're not the same... at least they're listed as separate products and smell differently. :cool:

    They're probably meant for the same thing, but I had to get both to see what the difference are. Looks to be scent, most of all. ;)
