    Used the soap as a stick today and it worked up a great lather. This is definitely a good alternative method for this soap.
    The TNNSER produced a lovely result. I'm now smooth as Carlos Santana.

    Cold Water Rinse
    Proraso Sandalwood
    Jayaruh #18
    Eversharp H1 Hussey
    Personna injector
    Aqua Velva Musk

    Today is Day 19 of SEptember. Up for the challenge today is my Eversharp H1 Hussey.

    The Proraso Sandalwood face-lathered well with Jayaruh #18 Brush. Two passes and touch ups with the Eversharp H1 Hussey razor with a Personna injector blade gave me a close, comfortable shave. After a cold water rinse I finished off with Aqua Velva Musk AS. I am clean, smooth, and refreshed...

    Do you solely blame the Astra blade for the rough shave?

    Autumn is in the air. Musk, spice, sandalwood and smoke are just right for this time of year. And yes, the Timeless Ti delivered an awesome shave. Another thing is the King C. Gillette Platinum blade. I think this is my 9th shave on it and it still exhibits great smoothness while being quite sharp. No signs yet of slowing down and an eye opener for me. A great day and shaves to all....

    A very nice shave today but the last one for this vintage blade. It felt more like it was scraping than cutting. It was fun to try a couple of vintage blade shaves but the edge just isn't keen enough to make it a regular habit.

    The scent and performance were so good I wanted to use it again already. I also finished off my jar of Proraso Red pre/post. Superb.

    I am prone to, Jopseph.
    I used the Tach many times with excellent results and the only variable parameter has been the blade.
