    Today I used a cream that had been lying forgotten for a long time: P160, without tallow.
    I do not know since how long it is out of production, but has maintained its excellent characteristics and also its delicate fragrance.

    It is a great product, just like its harder brother, with high smoothness and good post shave; lathers easily, thanks also to the efficient brush!
    The task of the razor was a sinecure.

    From the picture it may look like the sun is shining, but it's impossible: the forecast said it's raining!

    The Eufros Sandalo Shaving Soap face-lathered well with Jayaruh #417 Brush. Two passes and touch ups with the Tourqued Slant razor by Tom White with a Gillette Silver Blue blade gave me a close, comfortable shave. After a cold water rinse I finished off with Aqua Velva Iced Blue. I am clean, smooth, and refreshed...

    Razor: Gillette old type with tech fat handle-MFG 1920's,upper mid range, this razor was very much enjoyed by previous owner-s? it has a very brassed top cap , it came from a person with minimum means is what I thought when I observed the handle how he jammed paper in around threaded insert and barrel area of handle . He must of had a very good hand technique to shave with a wobbly cracked round ball type handle. He had to squeeze handle and stroke at the same time to make it work.
    Blade: Gillette silver blue[​IMG] (3) excellent blade, Sharp & smooth.
    Soap: Taylor of old Bond street Sandal wood(tobs)- very enjoyable scent with good lather qualities.
    Brush: Yaqi dice, Tuxedo knot 26 mm syn- Excellent lather creator with cloud like soft tips, newly purchased.
    Pre shave: Brush wash whole face with CeraVe hand bar cleanser + a dollop of Clear Aloe Vera gel on beard area.
    Prep: Cold water rinse after each pass of 2 + pickups. WTG + ATG + pickups.
    Post shave: Proraso red Sandal wood with witch hazel + a dollop of Nivea balm.
    Results: CCS,DFS,BBS + no irritation + no weepers = [​IMG] Excellent shave with my well used Gillette Old type.(Can understand why previous owner liked this razor so much!)

    Gem Contour II mk2, gem stainless ptfe blade, shave 5

    Results are in the Mk1 and Mk2 Contour II razors are identical far as I can tell shave wise. Finish still falls short but close to a BBS finish. There shouldn't be any difference with the mk3 but I will be using that one next for completeness sake.

    Here are the 3 styles of Contour II razors
    mk1 on the left
    mk2 in the middle
    mk3 on the right
