Bring that Clone and yourself to The 30 Day Thread. Should get you techniqued right up!
Paper and foil almost gone Chris! Will it last to the new year?

CVS Pharmacy: Carbon Blade & Spice Aftershave
Soap Commander : Soap and balm
Fantastic Andrew, Texas and the people are awesome! How about you my friend?
It's gonna be close. I estimate 20% remains, currently at 119. Arithmetic says 145ish.
November 10 - Qshave Focus
Razor - Qshave Futur Clone
Blade - (2)
Pre-Shave - Stirling Mentholated Pre-Shave Soap
Soap - Soap Commander Courage
Brush - 30DC LE
Post - Alum
Dialed up the Qshave to 5.5 tonight. Second night on the Feather blade and the Soap Commander and 30DC brush made a very nice lather. I really don't know how much difference I would be able to tell between 5.5 and 6, but this is one full setting above last night's 4.5, so we'll see how that compares at least.
The higher you set this razor the more noise it makes. Clearly it's cutting very well when it is this noisy, and it is still extremely smooth and comfortable. Again, no blood or other problems with this shave. Two passes and touch up and the baby is once again in the house. The alum is a bit warmer in spots than last night. I may have needed to adjust my technique a bit to avoid that, or it may just be the natural progression into the wider gap. Either way it wasn't a problem. I'm thinking this is as good as I had at 6, or at least comparable. I'm thinking tomorrow I may drop all the way to 1 on the razor just to do a comparison from high to low. Hope your weekend is off to a good start!
Wow. That is one nicely machined razor.

FIVE + BLADE Cartridge Razor DISTRACTION
RAZOR: Gillette Fusion5 Proglide (the original Gillette 5+ blade razor)
BLADE: - features five blades spaced closer together (vs MACH3) for incredible comfort.

SHAVE CREAM: Gillette Fusion Proglide Sensitive - Ocean Breeze
POST SHAVE: Hot water rinse

Another great Baby Butt Smooth Shave with this 5+ Blade razor. I last used this razor about 3 weeks ago.
This is the original 5 blade Gillette that was introduced in 2006. That's 11 years ago. I have acquired quite a few of these handles over the years - for free.
This is a very competent shaving platform. It allows me to complete an excellent, close shave in about 5 minutes. That includes prep time.
Enjoy your day.
Thank you very much - you are too kind
