    Just right prior to a 4 mile amble round the foothills of the Pentlands. All I can manage these days as awaiting surgery on my right knee (cartilage). I do rather like this 'proper' Aristo Jnr with its flat base plate and really pronounced knurling (on this example anyway)

    Mind the knee on your hike! Don't want to make it worse for surgery.
    Never been to the Pentlands. I bet it's a sight to behold. Include pics of the terrain sometime.

    That Rose of Bulgaria cream is terrific except for one thing - the scent. I don't like so much. Everything else about it is awesome.

    Gillette Fatboy (G3) Razor
    Treet Carbon Black Beauty Blade
    Ever-Ready #1 (restored)
    @Vlasta Sample A Cream
    Dickinson's Witch Hazel
    Pinaud Virgin Island Bay Rum

    Used sample A from @Vlasta and had a very good two pass and a bit of touch up for a smooth BBS shave. The shave cream worked out well, although the scent was a little faint, but nice.
