    Sunday Schick shave, Jan 31st 2021

    Razor: Schick adjustable injector Model 3(M3)- excellent Schick injector razor, still mid range in the 2-3 adjustment range.
    Blade: Personna SS PTFE injector(6) excellent blade, sharp & smooth and inexpensive, great longevity.
    Soap: Proraso red Sandal wood- great soap, different Sandal wood scent than other's, great lather qualities.
    Brush: Yaqi Red Zebra 26mm- If a person likes big knots that have heavenly cloud like soft tips, nice gentle scub & excellent lather painter and has a awesome handle this one might be worth it IMO. One of my favorite 26mm synthetics.
    Pre shave: Brush wash 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 + pickups. WTG + ATG + pickups.
    Post shave: Proraso red Sandal wood with witch hazel + a dollop of Nivea balm.
    Results: CCS,DFS,BBs + minor irritation + no weepers = [​IMG]Excellent shave with my Schick adj injector M3 + a Personna injector blade (6).

    I don't notice anything, except the cube makes my face black. It certainly doesn't make me handsome. No soap is that good! :lyrtuy5:

    Since Douglas has been releasing new drops of the Ascensions recently, I thought I'd pull mine out today.
