    Schick Type L injector, (S)chick blade, shave 3
    [​IMG] [​IMG]

    Going back and forth with the Schick Grip and Easy Rider injectors this one was next since it has teeth on the guard like them. Razor shaves like the Schick Grip with this blade and most likely is the same razor but with a standard black Type L style handle. One more shave with a twin blade to confirm this is indeed a variation of the Schick Grip.

    It feels like the mountains: the garden is frosted and the sun is strong!

    This morning I was feeling dry skin, so I did a massage with a Milchfett pea before lathering up.
    I have to admit that I didn't feel any particular difference: either I didn't have dry skin or the or the soap lubricated enough. Or the cream did the trick.
    I'll never know...

    The lavender and rosemary scent, before I smelled it, seemed like an absurd marriage, instead it is excellent and starting a day with my nostrils tickled like this is very pleasant.

    Nothing new about razor and blade: now that's a perfect marriage!

    And I was rewarded with another excellent scent: Bart's is a fantastic lavender balm. And multifaceted. Curiously enough, it pairs perfectly with different types of lavender.
    Too bad it's not easy to find...

    The Portuguese Eau de Cologne is veering towards other scents and history teaches me that, most probably, is due to my nose.

    The New York band did their best to keep me company and cheer my entrance into the day!

    Friday's Shave

    Cold Water Rinse
    Colgate Mug Shave Soap
    Jayaruh #47
    AutoStrop VC2
    Feather FHS-10
    Granddad's Blend AS

    The Colgate Mug Shave Soap lathered well with the Jayaruh #47 brush. Two passes and touch ups with the AutoStrop VC2 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...
