    Thanks brother. And yes, that synthetic punches way above its weight. A great brush that's super underrated...... :eatdrink047:

    Shave was perfect today. Best shave I've had with this razor. I have learned that this is the most aggressive/efficient razor in my collection. The key to reducing the irritation was to eliminate the 1st pass to reduce the blade-on-skin strokes to just a single pass against the grain and then a careful minor spot-clean up. As a result of backing off my usual 2 pass then clean up and cutting that 1st pass, I got the shave I wanted out of this. I like the 2-pass routine though, so it kind of bothers me that my prize razor is a 1-and-done shaver. I want to enjoy this expensive jewel. Oh well. At least I figured out how to get the best performance from this razor.

    The Merry Mixed Up Month of May!

    May 7

    Razor - Feather DX Artist Club (Pain Stick)
    Blade - [​IMG]
    Soap - Mitchell's Wool Fat
    Brush - 30DC Meet-Up LE w/TGN Grade A Silvertip
    Post - Alum

    I'm not sure why but man am I tired tonight. Seriously worn out. Didn't seem like that bad a day but I'm whupped. But....I can always stand in and get a shave with a pain stick. Still with the DX and Dorco blade. I decided to let the blade remain the weak link and add a quality brush and soap to the setup. The Fat is one of my top 3 soaps and I love working with it tonight, especially with that handle by @jtspartan that makes the high quality knot work its magic. Really enjoyable to use that brush, and especially with a high end soap like that. The blade still feels as sharp as it did last night, but no, nowhere near as sharp as a Feather Pro, but it was smooth and effective. I took my time and worked on three passes to reach a near-BBS and called it good. No need to push things further than that, especially with my eyes being a bit heavy tonight. Loved the shave and the result.

    Fun memory time!! In the early going of the 30DC most people were getting a handle on what gear to use. We had one rebel and a bit of a prophet. He decided to test the theory that cheap gear, that wasn't defective, could indeed perform as well as anything else. The picture is unique in that it only features the soap - but what a soap! You can read the list for all the gear. HERE IT IS!

    Have a fantastic Friday!!

    An intriguing 1st shave with the American engineered and produced SCS-1 by Robert Bennett. It is oh so smooth despite cutting medium aggressive. The head torques the blade slightly like a baby smooth but shaves more efficiently. I wonder if you can slightly loosen it to turn up the shave?? Anyway a pretty good shave #1 and looks pretty sweet to boot in a simple matte machined SS look. The Gunpowder Spice was killing it tonight. Happy shaves all.
