    Not usually a Gillette razor user but this one was just crying out to be used and I'm glad it did. Got a fine smooth easy shave and my face is happy for sure. Kudos to the Viking SS again, this stuff is marvelous. Now go enjoy your day folks

    Great stuff to try out from the 2019 pass around box. I'll be keeping the razor, and the soap, the others go back.
    Love this scent! Fotor_15653597734503.jpg

    A bit less than 24 hours stubble so I didn't think a morning shave would properly test my new Ever-Ready Streamline or Timeless Aluminum. So my get back on schedule shave went to my newly arrived $4 silver Series A Stahly. The 1940s Series A has a smaller guardspan, exposed blade tabs, and weighs 2g less than my chrome Series C I've been using the last two months. I was expecting a less mild shave given the shorter guardspan but if anything the opposite seemed to be the case, I had a bit harder of a time maintaining optimum angle and pressure. Still a very fine shave.[​IMG]

    9318CBC2-B7A7-4630-B3E6-83D590BA2AE8.jpeg So I wanted to revisit El Jefe because the first time out was a rough start. However, towards the end of the shave it smoothed out. So today I reached for it again to see. Same Schick ProLine blade on its second use.

    New soap today that came in with the last order, Stirling’s Orange Chill. Lovely orange forward scent and mentholated to boot. Thirsty soap but the badger and some water whipped up a lovely amount of cold, slick lather to work with.

    Lovely three pass BBS finish! Much smoother a go this time around. The soap was super chill as was the matching AS. Topped it all off with some B&BW Citron and ready to embrace the weekend!
