    Personna Magic Razor w/ Voskhod (1)
    Gillette Slim Adjustable w/ ??? (?)
    Omega 80056 Boar
    Arko Shave Stick
    Dickinson Witch Hazel
    Gillette CoolWage AS
    Trumpers Skin Food

    A fresh blade in the Personna made a huge difference. A couple of weepers, but overall definitely the best and most complete shave I've had with this, the cleanup w/ the Slim was almost unnecessary. So much so in fact that I didn't even bother checking what blade was in it, just picked it up and was done in a few seconds. A tiny bit on the chin and about a square centimeter around the adam's apple. In short, I'm am very happy, and technically I did get to participate in adjustable week, even if just by a hair. So there.

    • Prep: Hot shower, California Baby face wash, hand strop blade
    • Lather: C.O. Bigelow
    • Brush: Frank Shaving Finest
    • Razor: Gem OCMM
    • Blade: Walgreen's Gem (1), 2 passes
    • Post: WH, Aqua-Velva Ice Blue, hand strop blade
    Wonderful shave today. With the holiday I had almost a full 3 days worth of growth and the OCMM mowed it down effortlessly. DFS+ without even trying. What an enjoyable shave today. I hope all your shaves today were as good as mine!

    Shave Of The Day ~ Sept 6th

    • Hot Towel Prep
    • TSD M~Bomb ~ :smiley freezing: :smiley freezing: :smiley freezing:
    • Shea Moisture Shave Badger Brush
    • C.O. Bigelow Cream ~ :smiley freezing:
    • :Lord L6 Razor
    • Voskhod Blade ~ Day 2
    • Thayer's Witch Hazel/Osage Rub Blend
    • Aqua Velva Original Sport Aftershave ~ :smiley freezing:
    After my first pass I had decided I wanted to go with a bigger menthol blast than the Bigelow cream was offering, and thought I'd try rubbing the M~Bomb directly on my face as kinda of a shave oil. :signs136:

    WOOHOO! :happy036: Now that was cold! :Animatedfrozensmily:

    Spent the next two passes and touch up looking through watering eyes, and enjoying every minute of it, the cold water splash at the end was almost too much. :biggrin:

    I like the setting of #7 on my Slim too.

    I started a test on a Gillette Platinum blade, so as is my test regimen the first razor I loaded it into was a 40s Gold Tech, my mildest razor. I face lathered with VDH and a Rooney 3/1 Super Silvertip. A very nice shave, not quite a BBS, but it was good enough. The blade was good, but to make it a superior blade the shave in the Tech needs to be a BBS with my standard passes- this was just shy of one. I'll use this blade until it's spent, but in different razors.​


    The blade went into (still blade testing) my Black Handle SS, face lathered with a mix of 1 puck of VDH and one puck of Williams, shredded and melted together into a soap container. Today it was my Semogue 1438 Boar that did the lathering. This was an easy BBS. Finished up with my homemade experimental menthol AS. Ahhh! 8 hours later my face is still moisturized.​

    The blade will go into my Slim tomorrow set to "9", and there I'll use it for 5 more shaves (7 total) or until it's spent. Not necessarily because it's adjustable week, it's my test regimen for blades I test.​

    Today's shave

    Frank Shaving Finest
    Logona Mann SC
    KAI Captain Excelia folding with KAI mild
    Adventure ASG

    The Logona Mann is a very underrated cream. It's made from natural ingredients and has a lemony scent. The lather is great and stable. You can have a look on her here
    The Adventure ASG is a Bulgarian Gel. It's very comparable to the gellies from Aroma cosmetics like the Viking. So to say it's very nice.

    Berkley 46, face lather
    Palmolive Menthol SC (Italian)
    Alcoloda Glacial splash

    Three passes with one touch up for a DFS. I really like that palmolive menthol SC. It has a kind of minty scent along with some nice cooling. Good skincare.

    Normally, I slam all of my adjustable razors wide open, and I have done so with the Futur as well. I have found that the Futur delivers great shaves no matter what the setting, but I have decided on 3 for now.

    Have a great day Ya'!!
