    Super crazy how awesome the shave is from this fine razor! A BBS Saturday and did not even have to chase it around the playpen! lol Every time I use this razor, I am literally amazed at the results.

    You're putting in a lot of work with that Fat Boy! I love seeing when someone finds a razor that "just does it for me"!

    The more I use it the better! I love shaving with it. The experience I've gained over the last few months shaving with the same razor everyday has been invaluable. I'd say that it all clicked back in early July and this 62 year old razor is giving me the best shaves of my life!

    Never having done a side by side with my two Apollo Mikrons I decided it was time. Brushless shave, homemade oil, BIC blades, both set at five stops (different dial calibration in the two). I've used the bigger 50s model more often than the more svelte 60s model and appreciated the easier handling of the latter. The newer was also a bit noisier. Both smooth and efficient, no third party pickups this day.[​IMG]

    The last of the Kai's for awhile. Good blades but too pricey for single use.

    Thursday's Shave
    [​IMG]

    Cold Water Rinse
    Palmolive Shave Cream
    Jayaruh #424 Synthetic
    TARMAX by Tom
    Astra SP
    CWR
    Lustray Spice After Shave

    The Palmolive Shave Cream lathered well with Jayaruh #424 Synthetic Brush. Two passes and touch ups with the TARMAX Razor by Tom set on 8 with an Astra SP Blade gave me a close, comfortable shave. After a cold water rinse I finished off with Lustray Spice After Shave. I am clean, smooth, and refreshed...
