HomelikeShaving START 1.3 SB prototype/Dorco Titan/Graydog 26mm Badger/Tabac soap
Tabac Gentlemen’s Care after shave splash/Prada Luna Rossa eau de toilette
A real good shave. Not the biggest fan of the Tabac scent but, its performance is undeniably good. Plus, with the Tabac Gentlemen’s Care splash there is a bit of modernity and not so lavender forward as it can be a bit polarizing. Prada Luna Rossa is the best pairing imo with the revered soap as it provides a light clean lavender and soap freshness with a light tinge of bitter orange, amber & spearmint. Great day and shaves to all....

Leaf vs Shake Sharp. A bit surprising, while I expected the triple edge Leaf to top the twin blade Shake Sharp on my head shave the Shaker actually held its own bin terms of efficiency if not comfort. The Leaf while awkward on the beard is sóoo easy to use as a head shaver. Super max BDT on both.

Looks like some nice gear this morning.
Very nice gear, I like your brush handle and of coarse the Oneblade Genisis razor with the new vertical stand.
Sunday shave,Feb 16th 2020- I like to use my Pal Injecto-matic every once in a while, two many injectors and not enough days. The Pal company spent well over 1 million dollars to develop this razor in the 1950's and they did a nice job for a injector IMO.

Thanks. Yeah it is a coated black version on the original DOC. They also made a Cubano gold and brown version. Right after I bought the Grackle they came out with that version. I really enjoy this razor even though many thought it too mild. I actually prefer it a little more then the newest model. It is also adjustable based on how tight the handle is. It has been a bit since I broke it out, but I have been kind of on a PAA kick, and since I was using an older soap I figured it was time.
