    Schick Proline blade

    Becker scuttle

    synthetic brush

    Just a small amount of cream in the scuttle made thick lather quickly. Plenty for a 3 pass shave.

    The results: BBS+ with excellent post shave smoothness.

    Well, one month down in the new year and I'm still rechecking my dates to make sure I'm not putting down 19. Anyway, to start the month of love I went full Proraso Wood and Spice. I also went full copper with my new Charcoal Goods Copper Lvl 2, Zenith M15, and Captain's Choice Heavy Copper Lather Bowl. The blade was a Lord Extra SS. Just a nice close shave. [​IMG][​IMG]

    I bought this razor some time back and just could not get a decent shave so it was relegated to the back of the SE drawer. My requirements have changed somewhat and I have been spending time perfecting my shaves with milder razors.
    It took the full 3 passes but today's results were excellent. I will certainly be using this one again!

    ●London Morning soap
    ●PTFE stainless

    Compared the 1912, Guiding Eye, and the G-Bar with the same blade. '12 is the smoothest and best performing for me. The Eye was similar but not quite there. The G-Bar dragged in comparison, regardless of angle, even going over areas the '12 has just shaved. Weird, I used to love the G-Bar. So I am quite happy with the elder of the three. Now all I need is the long chain link handle to replace the serrated/fluted shorty it comes with.

    Happy February :). I opened the month by finishing off my trifecta(3 straight days of):

    prep-Dial 4 Men Bodywash(Max. Moisture)in shower
    shave-Central Texas Soaps(Weekend Rodeo)
    brush-Stoylin 14x51 Synth.
    razor-Gillette Sensor Deuce Pivot + DisposeABLE
    A.S.-Central Texas Soaps Splash(Weekend Rodeo)

    Solid shave-2 good passes, no cuts. Maybe a little too much time under the tap for the brush, thus there was blooming involved that I didn't expect. But as I am the Veep of that esteemed organization, that was OK. No senstitivity issues as result of the aftershave application-maybe it is becoming ONE with my face and neck. Grade-Pretty Excellent. On to the next soap.
