    Clarks DE razor, Bic Chrome Platinum, shave 4
    [​IMG] [​IMG]

    I don't have my own pictures taken yet so using 3rd party images for the moment. Razor was produced between 1909 - 1912 and is possibly the first DE razor to compete against Gillette using it's own propertary blade that would fit in a Gillette razor but Gillette 3 hole barrel blades wouldn't fit this one. Fairly easy modification is needed to use modern blades in this razor. First off unlike the Gillette old type this thing is solid nothing flimsy about the design. It is also supposed to be a differential with one side being for regular and one side for close. I used the close side, lot of blade feel but not overly aggressive. End result BBS finish everywhere on the face except under the chin. Next use I'll try the regular shave side.

    That razor always makes me think of a belly dancer...
    Should I see a shrinker?
    Even if I'd prefer to see the dancer!

    This gorgeous gray, albeit somewhat bright, day demanded a retro-scented soap, a brush like those of yesteryear, a razor whose design has remained unchanged since the 1950s, an EdT from the 1930s, a face from the 1940s, and music a hair younger than I, revisited, in a bathroom that dates back to the early 1900s!

    It was very, very enjoyable....
