    Thanks Mike. I bought a whole lot of razors just for that one. Luckily I sold what I didn't want and broke even for that razor and one other.

    Cold wet flannel to my face.
    Pears ~ Lemon Flower Transparent Bar Soap + Nuage Menthol shaving Oil.

    Cold Water Face Rinse./Homemade (~Winter mix~) Lavender + Tea Tree Oil Witch Hazel Mixture./ Blue Stratos ASL./Boots ~ Fragrance Free Moisturising Lotion.


    A enjoyable 3 pass + pick ups close comfortable shave with no errors to report...A great shave to end my shaving week in style.
    The Gillette 'NOS 94' blade has performed wonderfully with each of my shaves....I normally retire a blade after 4-5 shaves, max but the 'NOS 94' i will use again in future shaves as it's still got plenty of life within it...Finishing the shave with a small dollop of Boots ~ Fragrance Free Moisturising Lotion.

    My face is feeling super smooth & smelling divine.;)

    Keep safe, and enjoy your day ladies & gentlemen.:cool:

    This is an important day and not just because today is my birthday and 1/3 (which I didn't get a third of a wish for!), but because it's the 68th anniversary of the maiden voyage of the Andrea Doria.
    On that voyage, my grandfather left for the U.S., where he stayed some 20 years.

    But it is not so much to celebrate the luxurious liner, from the days when ships looked like ships and not like floating barracks and wore an elegant black and white livery with the national colors on the smokestack, but to remember a hero, never mentioned, definitely forgotten: the commander Piero Calamai.

    He saved all the passengers and crew (over 1,700 people) from the disaster caused by the third officer of the Stockholm and, to this day, this remains the most impressive naval rescue of all time and is studied by the Naval Academy of Annapolis.

    What a difference with today's characters who strenuously defend untenable positions because they they don't have the dignity to recognize proven errors!

    And I celebrate with a grand shaving!

    Soap gave me a fantastic shave, as usual, and even the blade was up to the task!
    The brush, tiny and efficient, was ideal for a small bowl.
    An almost perfect shave!
