    Razor: Gillette Atra handle
    Blade: El cheapo generic cartridge (4)
    Lather: Gillette Foamy (can)
    AS: Brut Splash On
    Newspaper Date: May 6,1945

    By way of explain: I`ve been awfully busy each morning with a host of medical tasks, and not either the time or inclination to post my morning shave(sorry). I think I`m well on my way to healing some of the things that have taken up so much time, so here goes. A 2 pass, WTG/ATG with an outdated shaving system, just to experiment a little. About 4 shaves with a cheap generic "cart" is it. The first pass is always really smooth, but not very close. 2nd pass is kinda rough, but manages to get pretty much all of the whiskers, not at all very smooth and the clean up takes very careful consideration. I finally came out with a pretty good "workingman`s shave". Acceptable in public, but not for me. I will go back to my Personna flex and Gillette TwinJector , and regular routine. I`ll try to post most every day, but 1`m not sure. God Bless each and all, happy shaving.

    Great 1st shave with the Claymore from Executive Shaving. Bulky, heavy and not very attractive looking. But damn! This razor puts some hurting on the whiskers. A smooth 2 pass plus minor buffing and it was an awesome BBS finish. Not much is said about this razor, but it competes with some of the best SE's out there shave quality wise imho. A little on the mid-aggressive side, but very comfortable and efficient. Have a great day and shaves Gents..;)

    Hi Friends,

    here is my Sunday Morning Shave:

    Razor: iKon SBS w. Juergen Hempel Handle // Blade: Gillette Bleue Extra // Soap: Sapone da Barba Vegetale alla Mandorla // Brush: Shavemac 23397 // Aftershave: 4711 Portugal

    2nd shave with the iKon and i´m still very impressed. My feeling was absolutely correct, that this razor is a very mild one with a great smoothness. The Gillette Bleue Extra does even a better job than the Astra SP on the first shave. Amazing!!! But i had the feeling, that the open comb is more gentle, than the closed comb, which wonders me, because normally it´s the other way round. Or it was just my feeling.

    The 4711 Portugal is truly a great Aftershave. Smells very good and fresh, but sadly not that long. Maybe 10 minutes and the scent is gone. Skincare is very good.

    So, i had a great shave and my skin felt like a dolphin. :love029::love055::love029:

    Have a great time, enjoy your shaves and take care.
