    Thanks certainly was:)
    The Bay Rum is nice. It performs very well...just like all the Stirling soaps but is not my favourite as I find it just a little too heavy with clove

    Razor : Gem Junior bar, Mfg 1907-11, mild to tame mid range, well made to last a few more generations with a little care, made from brass sheet stamped and pressed very accurately to form a beautiful looking and functional razor even to accurate standards of today IMO.
    Blade : Gem Personna SS PTFE (2) very sharp, great longevity, smooths out nicely, predictable + safest blade to handle.
    Soap : Razorock American Barber, sharp linear unique scent with excellent lather qualities.
    Brush : Yaqi "Red Zebra" 26mm snow leopard synthetic knot, excellent lather generator, heavenly luxury soft tips, gentle splay scrubber + excellent lather painter.
    Pre shave : (Dedicated Cashmere synthetic)Brush wash whole face with CeraVe hand bar cleanser with a dollop of clear Aloe Vera on the cleaned beard area.
    Prep : Cold water rinse after each pass of 2 + pickups. WTG + ATG + pickups.
    Post shave : Razorock American barber with witch hazel + a dollop of CeraVe moisturizing lotion(scentless).
    Results :CCS,DFS,BBS + no irritation + no weepers=[​IMG] excellent shave with my Gem Jr bar with a coated Gem SS blade.

    Continuing my tour through some of my favorite injectors. The Schick C3 is one of the coolest there is with its foldable design and classic good looks. The shave is just as impressive. :happy036:


    Happy shaving - Karl

    Razor: Gillette Styler

    Feeling just awful today. Two of my friends at work both tested positive for COVID. If I had a rapid test I would check myself. Best I could do was to break out my Gillette Styler on setting 0.

    Great shave Ron.

    I have the same handle that I polished out but I found it too slick. I taped off the ends and bead blasted the middle section.
    It gave it at two tone look and made the grip a lot better.

    It pars great with my Gillette long comb. It is a great handle.

    Take care.

    The handle looks painted and matches the Gillette long comb well when I first looked at it, excellent idea bead blasting for a little more grip and looks different also.
    I did not like the look of this handle in photos with my other razor heads but with this Zephyr head the dimpled handle looks OK.
    The Yaqi Zephyr is just a different looking razor that shaves smoothly.
    Tomorrow I going to slip in a Kai Extra wide, Yaqi did use the old system of locating the blade with slot posts (small ones) and also the 4 corner alignment posts.
    Should be a interesting shave and I will use alum on the handle for now if needed!

    Monday Shave

    Lather: Dr Jon's Essentials Unscented soap
    Brush: @oscar11 with H.I.S. synthetic knot
    Razor: Henson AL13 V2 +
    Blade: Wizamet Super Iridium
    Post: Ariana and Evans Post Shave Serum

    I always enjoy using this brush. @oscar11 made this in 2013, back when there was not much selection in synthetic knots. The best ones around were in the H.I.S. shaving brushes made by a company that produced makeup brushes. A couple of artisans at the time were willing to extract the excellent knot from the rather plain-looking handle and transplant it into a fabulous handle, like this one by Steve (Oscar11).

    The Tabac Shaving Soap lathered well with the Jayaruh #224 Synthetic brush. Two passes and touch ups with the Gillette NEW DeLuxe Norfolk and a Gillette Silver Blue SS Blade gave me a close, comfortable shave. After a cold water rinse I finished off with Dickinson's Witch Hazel and Tabac AS. I am clean, smooth, and refreshed...
