    Razor: Yaqi TFC adjustable-Mfg 2021> great adjustable with the Gibbs design from the 1930's, mostly carefree shaving, easy to change on the fly, adjustments seem to work well (3>3>3.5 pickups).Very affordable + reasonable quality for a Gibbs style razor IMO.
    Blade: Gillette 7oClock SP(5)tossed) sharp & smoooth with reasonable longevity. Winter months are hard on blades with drier conditions & tougher.
    Soap: Speick- nice mild spicy scent with excellent lather qualities.
    Brush: Yaqi 26mm Moka express 2band badger, excellent lather generator, pillow like soft tips, nice scrubber, greater painter.
    Pre shave: Brush wash 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.
    Post shave: Ach Brito Lavanda with witch hazel + a dollop of CeraVe moisturizing lotion + scentless.
    Results: CCS,DFS,BBs + no irritation + 2 small weepers(operator error)= Excellent shave with my Yaqi TFC adjustable with a 7oClock SP blade.

    Razor: Yaqi TFC adjustable- Mfg 2021> great adjustable razor, I like using it on settings (3,3, 3.5 pickups) the results are stellar and can not complain. Comfort is just right for me and enjoy the shave mostly. Designed off the 1930's Gibbs adjustable razor & DE 89 head + also uses Gillette patent standard blades. Gibbs razors used proprietary blades.
    Blade: Gillette 7oClock SP- sharp & smooth with reasonable longevity.
    Soap: Gillette Pure cream- this cream makes excellent ubber lather from left over other soap, nice fresh scent + excellent lather qualities.
    Brush: Yaqi 24mm orbital ring boar- excellent lather generator, soft split end bristle tips, great scrubber + great lather painter.
    Pre shave: Brush wash 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 + razor. Warm lather I enjoy.
    Post shave: Razorock King Louis with witch hazel + a dollop of CeraVe moisturizing lotion + scentless.
    Results: CCS,DFS,BBs + no irritation + no weepers=[​IMG]excellent shave with my Yaqi TFC adjustable with a Gillette 7oClock.
