    Razor - Gillette Red Tip Superspeed circa 1955-1960 (Re-plated in Satin-Nickel Finish and re-painted tip in Radiant Red color by Razor Emporium.)
    Blade - [​IMG] *Fresh Blade
    Shave Brush - Ever-Ready 1960's vintage (Polished and re-knotted with a synthetic 26mm Ubersoft II knot from Envyshave by Razor Emporium.)
    Shave Stand by by Desire Metal Works
    Suds - Procter & Gamble Old Spice "Original" Cream (Made in India) *I dried it out for months into a hard soap.
    Aftershave - Procter & Gamble Old Spice "Classic"
    Deodorant - Procter & Gamble Old Spice "Classic"
    Fragrance - Procter & Gamble Old Spice "Classic"

    ***EDIT - Late morning shave - 1 pass + extensive targeted clean up. No weepers or any immediate redness, but definitely felt some irritation. It's the Red Tip, so it's aggressive and it's a fresh blade. These things happen when your shaving tools are do what they're supposed to. I went to my PAA Alum block which stung and quickly revealed the red irritation that was coming. Then applied my aftershave. No balm. I've found that when I have a bit of razor irritation that dry skin, or even powder can relieve redness in a few hours. I will apply the balm tonight after washing my face to promote the proper portion of healing the surface. The only worry is that I have to wake up early tomorrow and I want to shave, but this irritation might not be fully stabilized and could cause more discomfort tomorrow. That doesn't always happen, but I find the odds are increased that I could get a bad back-to-back shave.

    ***EDIT 2 - After a few hours the redness has gone away and boy, this is BBS. This is about as close a shave can get without ravaging the skin. I still feel a smidge of irritation, but it's largely settled now. I credit the Red Tip and BiC Blade combo for riding the edge. Turned out to be a really good shave.
