    Russian Gillette Black Beauty Copy
    Personna Platinum Chrome (Israeli Red) Blade
    Ever-Ready #1 Boar (restored) Brush
    Vintage Klar Shave Soap
    Dickinson's Witch Hazel w/Rose
    Stetson After Shave

    I've seen mixed reviews about Russian copies of Gillette Black Beauty razors, and when I saw this come up, the seller took my offer. And if my knowledge of Russian is correct, it came with a pack of Ladas blades So I decided to use it today using a very trusted blade in every razor I've used it in. For Gillette adjustable razors I usually keep the setting at seven, but I tried this on six. Yep, lots of blade feel, so it went to number four. It still seemed a bit aggressive, but I went with the shave anyway. With three passes it was pretty damn close to a BBS shave.
