cool shave Jon..
glad you are ok Jim..
The shaving qualities are very close, excellent.
The Parker Variant is mine, The Rex Ambassador is a loan.
I intend to finish this evening the case of the Rex, and attach it to the mailing to the next loaner.
Later, I would do the Variant one, and initiate a turn of loan, on the forum "Rasage Traditionnel".
Monday OCtober 14
Today I used a razor I've not used before - it kind of scared me a bit. A Palmera with a 6 and a 5 stamped on the razor plate. The Waits Compendium doesn't show this razor, but does show a Palmera model 15 so I'm thinking or hoping this is a model 65. The razor plate on this razor is very slightly curved from side to side and I was concerned the blade would not be held properly. Well, there is a lot of exposed blade but if used carefully, this razor is fine.
Bowl/Scuttle - GP12
Soap - MWF (it's Monday)
Brush - ThatDarnRob Masque 26mm V3 Fanchurian
Blade - Feather HI SS (9)
Razor - Palmera 65 (Spain)
Post Shave - OSMA Pierre alum, Epsilon Blue A/S (Spain)
Shave rating 5 of 5
I did a one pass shave today, WTG and was DFS+ which surprised me. This razor looks like a cross between a caged head and a long comb. This razor is VERY AGGRESSIVE, very efficient, a lot of exposed blade and a lot of blade feel. I needed to use a very light touch, ride the cap to reduce the blade feel, and I surprised myself with a very good shave save for one nick. Definitely not an every day driver. The MWF lathered and lubricated well. I had the one nick but otherwise the alum was quiet. Epsilon Blue finished off the shave.
Overall, a surprisingly great shave. Have a few more French and English razors that will be the razors for my next few shaves this week.
Happy OCtober and great shaves everyone.
Thank you, Doug.

*well, to make a long story short I had to switch back to a quick shave this morning due to my need to leave the bathroom so the maintenance ,man could show me why my shower wasn't shutting off completely. He came much later after my shave though. Thus, I didn't use the Jayaruh this morning(or any brush, for that matter.)
