    More than likely some stupid kid who was up to no good and got scared and ran after throwing it. Not one of those things you want to see first thing in the morning!

    SOTD, Feb 14th,2020- Still enjoying my Oneblade Core and still having some fun with it, today I experimented with a shim(.005 thousands of a inch thickness taped to the modified gem blade) it's a bit crude but effective. You can not get a closer shave with out potato peeling the skin. (excellent shave). The closer the shave the greater the chances of possible irritation as a rule of thumb IMO. I did notice a increase in blade feel because of larger blade gap with slight aggression & efficiency increase but nothing serious to worry about. But I enjoy just the regular shave with no adjustment to blade just as much. All my razors go through a gauntlet of testing & if I like the results it stays in rotation-(2 pass,3 pass,shim if possible,buffing,J-hooking & Gillette slide or Oneblade slide [​IMG] .)

    Razor : One blade Core 2nd version- MFG 2018>
    Blade : Gem SS PTFE modified (8) with a .005 tapped shim piggy backed on lower half.
    Soap : Razorock "What the Puck" orange citrus bergamot scent.
    Brush: Razorock Plissoft 24mm.
    Pre-shave: Brush wash the face with CeraVe hand bar soap + A dollop of clear Aloe Vera gel on beard area.
    Prep: cold water rinse after each pass of 3.
    Post shave: Razorock blue barber with witch hazel + Nivea Men balm.
    Results: CCS,DFS,BBS + no irritation + no weepers = [​IMG]

    Well it was malicious. The cop just left and he indicated that there were a few other incidents on my street and a few other blocks as well. Busted out car windows, mailboxes trashed, spray paint, etc. There are a few CCTV cams around, but it was dark and I doubt they'll see much. You never know.

    Happy Valentines Day fellow shavers.

    A very excellent shave this morning and I smell all valentiney. I usually do at least a 2+ pass shave but as I started my typical touchup run I realized it was completely unnecessary.

    OK shave. I must be relaxing my technique, because I've nicked and irritated myself over my last few shaves. With the One Blade, that's like cutting your finger with a butter knife. It's been 20 minutes, and I'm still burning.

    Friday February 14th - Valentine's Day Shave

    Well, for starters, my wife worked the night shift so she's asleep blocking off the master so I'm shaving in a spare bathroom (so I don't have all my gear at my disposal). Also, as it's a special day, I thought I'd use an adjustable that I haven't used in months - the Pal Adjustable. It's already loaded with a Chick blade with a couple shaves on it. Three awesome passes with only one small weeper under the lip thanks to my laziness . All in all - smooth, comfortable, and close. Awesome scents too. I may repeat tomorrow. Happy shaves all.
