    January - Shavettes and Jeeves!

    January 12 - Blade Trials

    Razor - 1962 (H1) Gillette Slim (9)
    Blade - [​IMG] (3)
    Soap - Arko
    Brush - Jayaruh #46
    Post - Alum

    Strange day here in Cartel land. Woke up to about 10" of snow on the ground and still coming down lightly. Got up, had coffee, checked in here, got ready to go to work, cleaned off the car, went to work and as I was just getting things started got a call from the bosses that they had decided to close all of our stores today in STL due to weather. Seriously? We couldn't have decided that an hour earlier? So, I locked up, drove back through the slush and muck and spent the day organizing my desk, checking in here, watching a movie with the Mrs. and generally just doing a lot of nothing. As of tonight we have a minor thaw going, it seems. It's just above freezing so I expect a bit less snow on the ground in the morning.

    As for the shave tonight - number three on the Blade Trial for the Super Gillette Blue Blade. Slim turned all the way up to 9, great lather from Arko and the JR46 and after three passes the baby is again in the house, though the alum is slightly warm on my neck. That's something that sometimes happens as the gap opens so I'm not really concerned. What impresses me is that this blade took all three shaves without creating any weepers or blood, the feeling was smooth throughout all three shaves and the result was consistent. Judging from what slight irritation there is and the overall feel I would say that three shaves is plenty on these blades, but I certainly wouldn't have a problem using them as a daily blade if I had to. Nice find on these from @John Ruschmeyer ! Now, tomorrow I'll give the razor they sell with the blades a go. I'm pretty sure it's the same razor as the Rapira razor, or at least looks the same. We'll see if I can get a smooth shave out of it. The Rapira razor isn't always so generous.

    So you wanna know what the plan is after tomorrow's shave? Well here it is in a nutshell....well...calendar anyway.

    I know you can all read my writing so there will be no surprises! If nothing else that proves that when I go down the blade trial path I have a plan. Not that it can't be modified. Basically 6 more blades to trial this month starting Monday so it should be interesting! My Parker SRX will get to remain unused until February which is fine. I don't mind extending shavettes a bit. And, there's a surprise coming that I think @wchnu Fuzzy will definitely like.

    Have a great Saturday night and a fantastic Sunday!
