    Razor: Razorock old type-MFG 2015> very nice mild razor but with a extra wide KAI drives it up a notch in efficentcy.
    Blade: Kai SS (5) Excellent blade for longevity, Sharp & smooth. Nice to have a few tucks for milder razors IMO.
    Soap: Razorock XXX- Excellent scent and lather qualities.(used my first tub up)
    Brush: Yaqi 24mm tuxedo knot synthetic- Excellent lather creator with cloud like soft tips that I enjoy.
    Pre Shave: Brushwash whole face with CeraVe hand bar cleanser + a dollop of Aloe Vera gel on beard area.
    Prep: Cold water rinse after each pass of 2 + pickups. WTG + ATG + pickups.
    Post shave: Razorock XXX aftershave with witch Hazel + a dollop of Nivea Balm.
    Results: CCS,DFS,BbS + no irritation + no weepers= [​IMG]Excellent shave with my RR Old type DE razor.

    Thank you, it is a favourite of mine as well. It is a brass tool ferrule over top of a full handle. I turned the handle to fit snugly under the thin ferrule. I made a couple like this- the other is in S Korea with @Keithmax.
