    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 : DE TARMAX by @twhite , this is one smooth razor shave and it is one of my favorite adjustable razors of 6, settings go from 1-8 on dial and 8 seems to be my sweet spot, it must be the design for this exceptional smoothness + efficentcy of having the blade being flat and riding the bar give just stellar results. The handle is not stock but a modified Gem Micromatic handle that I enjoy and with this combination makes for excellent shaving results. 1 of 4 proto types of the DE TARMAX designed by Tom of the many different razors he has created over the years. Won this in a fund raising raffle on this forum, lucky me!
    Blade : Gillette Super platinum(4) Sharp & smooth with reasonable longevity.
    Soap : Razorock Lavender, nice masculine scent of lavender with excellent lather qualities.
    Brush : Yaqi Artic sky 24mm synthetic, excellent lather generator, heavenly soft hair tips, gentle splay scrubber + excellent lather painter.
    Pre shave : (Dedicated Cashmere synthetic)Brush wash whole face with CeraVe hand bar cleanser with a dollop of clear Aloe Vera on the cleaned beard area.
    Prep : Cold water rinse after each pass of 2 + pickups. (8)WTG +(8) ATG + pickups(10)settings.
    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 DE TARMAX adjustable with a Gillette 7oClock SP(black).
