Thank you, gentlemen.
Awesome photo Jeff! How to you like the FAS-10 Carbon Steel blades? I've only used the FHS-10 Stainless.
Sunday Schick shave, OCtober 18th 2020
Razor: Schick injector J1- MFG 1957-64- milder mid range, excellent daily driver for some folks.
Blade: Personna SS PTFE injector (2) very sharp, longevity and smooths out over time.
Soap: Barrister & Mann Seville- nice scent with great lather qualities. (First tub spent)
Brush: Yaqi tuxedo knot 24 mm Sagrada Familia- Excellent brush for making lather with cloud like soft tips.
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 + pick ups. WTG + ATG + pickups.
Post shave: Fine fresh Vetiver with witch hazel + a dollop of Nivea balm.
Results: CCS,DFS,BBS + no irritation + 1 blemish weeper = great shave with my Schick J1 injector.
Have some great shaves! Stay & think safe in these times!

Thanks, Jim! That's much appreciated from you! The FAS-10 blades are great in my Auto Strops, but only if one is willing to strop them. They do dull quicker than the FAS-10 blades, but stropping has allowed me to extend the blade life impressively. I generally now quit after about 15 to 16 shaves, stropping about every third shave. Enjoy your day!

Darwin, Darwin wedge blade, shave 1
Razor on loan from @twhite aka Doctor S. Evil, the s is for shave. I used the Autostrop strop to prepare blade with 100 passes on each side. I don't know how far you can adjust the blade but it had plenty of feedback but not overly aggressive. Not the closest shave I've had but certainly the best one so far using a wedge blade in a razor. I am going to adjust the screw to give it some more gap on the next shave.
cool 1948 aristocrat shave and pic Leo..
I get that often. Little did I know when I picked it up for $5 at a thrift shop. The Kent decal is gone now. It just rinsed off one day. The brush is a joy to use.

I feel nearly sunburnt, when I use this razor. I’m left very smooth. I find the angle to be so initiative, that my thinking about angle makes it more difficult. Lol. This it’s one cool looking razor, but I find it hard to get used to holding it. I managed
After a three pass shave, in wondering if they engineered this one for a one pass shave, or I just don’t take into account the single edge difference’s.
Hope y’all did as well, or better.
