    A cold morning, not livid and not bright; a morning as uncertain as the proceedings of our government.
    No offense meant to the weather, of course!

    Cold and bright morning, but not when I shaved: it was quite dark and pleasant.

    I'm busy and can't waste time: I'll do that when I have time!
    My choices were made on a weather-olfactory basis, as usual!

    Sunday Schick shave, Jan 10th 2021- I always like to take this E2 injector razor out of the rack for a nice shave, it was in real rough shape and I was able to fix and modify it back to life(Main spring swings to left for cleaning and manual blade inserting). Excellent mid range if a person likes to try a Schick injector.

    Razor: Schick E2 injector Canadian variant-MFG 1930's-40's, one of my favorites and one that will be around always.

    Blade: Personna SS PTFE(7) Excellent blade, Very sharp, great longevity and smooths out nicely.

    Soap: Razorock Don Marco, bright citrus scent with excellent lather qualities.

    Brush: Yaqi Red Zebra handle 26mm- very nice 26mm knot, one of the softer 26mm knots with heavenly cloud like soft tips with a nice gentle scrub IMO.

    Pre shave: Brush wash my whole face with CeraVe hand bar cleanser + a dollop of clear Aloe Vera gel on the cleaned beard area.

    Prep: Cold water rinse after each pass of 2 + pick ups. WTG + ATG + pickups.

    Post shave: Razorock Amici aftershave with witch hazel + a dollop of Nivea balm.

    Results: CCS,DFS,BBS + no irritation + no weepers = :a17: excellent shave with my Schick E2 Canadian variant injector + a Personna injector blade.
