    Williams Wednesday's Shave
    zcws.jpg

    Cold Water Rinse
    Williams Mug Shave Soap
    Jayaruh #224
    eBARBERSHIP Schick O Clone
    Schick Twin Blade
    CWS
    Barbasol AS

    My prep was just a cold water rinse. The Williams Mug Shave Soap face lathered well with the Jayaruh #224 Brush. I did two passes with the eBARBERSHIP Schick O Clone razor with a Schick Twin Blade and ended up with a close, comfortable shave. After a cold water rinse, I finished off with Barbasol AS. I am clean, smooth, and refreshed...

    PS This is a cool razor. It is probably the closest you will get to a real Schick O. However, it looks like eBARBERSHOP is no linger carrying this razor. I don't know if you can find it anywhere else.

    Razorock Plissoft 26mm Monster
    Super Speed/Gillette day 5
    Bundubeard Klipspringer’s Kick SS
    Prep ASB
    Henri et Victoria Bergamot Vetiver AS Splash

    These Gillette blades are very good - in fact I think they’re an excellent substitute for my Astra Greens so I’ll try to stock up with them. My man Jaco’s Klipspringer soap has it all - a lovely scent which I enjoy so much, tons of awesome lather, a delightful menthol sensation, and such wonderful skincare. These Bundubeard soaps also give fantastic blade glide - the razor skated across my face so easily. The Prep felt absolutely heavenly and the Bergamot Vetiver aftershave from Henri et Victoria went on icy cold with a beautiful scent which even my wife loves. Three passes did the job for me and my BBS mission was accomplished!

    Good question...
    In the 70's I bought a Schick: do not remember where and do not know where it is after many moves.
    At that time i was butchering my face every morning and thought a stiffer blade would have been better.

    I found out not: same results I achieved with my Slim Adjustable (1 razor, 1 soap, 1 brush at that time :D).
    Years ago a friend gave me my first PAL, but was not love at first shave.
    Tried various blades and, lately, and the Ted Pella were better than the other even if light years away from DE's and suitable blades.

    Now another friend game me this one: the blades that came with it were as smooth as a a tiling spatula but things turned far better when changed it with the Personna.
    But... I still prefer my DE's: almost any of them!
    But a sort of affection is born with the SE's, so... I keep trying!

    A long speech to say noting, uhu? I apologize!

    Great picture? Flattery will... :D
    Thank you...
