After getting the base plate for this razor yesterday, I had to try it out. To me, this is a very deceiving razor. When shaving it appears to be a pretty mild razor. But after two passes it delivered a near BBS shave and only needed a couple strokes, just water and no lathering, to produce a very nice BBS shave.
Nice looking razor.............
Excellent photograph and filter Jim.
Thank you Douglas.

Well struggled to get a good lather but ok on face .. not as thick as I normally like! but the blade although three days growth seemed to drag and a few passes were needed... didn’t get any rash or burn but I don’t like these blades !!!
Maybe in a different razor?
Nice moisturiser and cologne though
Saying that it doesn’t feel to bad after moisturiser I’ve chucked blade but have another 4 to try with different razors I guess?
Man i am with you. Vanessa Williams is something special. My oldest son [now 27] told me when he was about 7 that he was going to marry her . Good taste

Mail call. I just received the soap and AS. The only other bay rum scent I've tried is PAA Atomic Age B.R. I was looking for something with a bit more spice and I'm very pleased with both of these scents.
The shave was the best one I've had in a while, 3 pass bbs. Finished off with some Nivea Cooling balm.
I'm considering purchasing another badger brush, I'm eyeing the new Stirling HMW, anyone own one?
Take care, everyone!
