    The sun insists, however it justifies the musical choice.

    An excellent shave with this blade that is truly excellent, for my technique on my skin. It was chirping, this morning as it leveled out everything.

    Not much else to say...

    Razor: Schick N1
    Blade: Twin Schick (4)
    Brush: Stirling Synthetic
    Soap: Ariana & Evans NYC
    AS 1: Humphrey's Alcoholado Maravilla 70
    AS 2: Ariana & Evans NYC
    Fragrance: Penhaligon's Lothair

    VARIETY is baaaaaaaack ! YES !! Chose the NYC for today which is a nice scent and some cool artwork as well on the tub. I have to say that it feels like cheating when using an Injector razor and I have to wonder if I had started with them, would i have ever tried anything else. Why did they not continue to be produced by Schick or Eversharp. We seem to always fall victim to the new mousetrap and desire better when best may have been these razors. Just a mindless and close shave that would rival any modern day Stainless Steel art designed razor. Maybe not it appearance an coolness factor, but definitely in what the tool was supposed to produce. Maybe I'll sell ALL my razors except the injectors......................Nah, I like the history and the different "tools" but today's shave had me wondering if I could have just 1 razor for the rest of my life, would I pick for function or cool factor? Which would I choose?...................Okay, let's shake off those crazy and rational thoughts and get some coffee and something sweet to go with it. Have a "Stupid Fun Day" today Guys it's Thursday, my Friday !!

    Thursday's Shave
    zcws.jpg

    Cold Water Rinse
    Colgate Mug Shave Soap
    Jayaruh #47
    AutoStrop VB1
    Feather FHS-10
    CWR
    Granddad's Blend AS

    The Colgate Mug Shave Soap lathered well with the Jayaruh #47 brush. Two passes and touch ups with the AutoStrop VB1 razor with a Feather FHS-10 blade gave me a close, comfortable shave. After a cold water rinse I finished off with Granddad's Blend AS. I am clean, smooth, and refreshed...

    I know right? As a test I recently used my Schick G8 Injector for about a month and it was an excellent daily shaver! The pull for variety has me trying new things again too, but I can see myself using the injectors more and more. I have the E2, G1, G8, Hydro-Magic, J1, and the Easy Rider is my other favorite right now. So smooooooooth.
