    Greetings,

    Last outing of the Indian Gillette Wilkinson Sword blade which has performed wonderfully with each shave throughout the week . What i like about the Kanzy K100 razor is, the balanced weight it's closed 'tech type head' which holds the blade rigidly which blade chatter is reduced to minimum with no blade over-hang which is very comfortable to shave with additional protection of catching my ear lobes or under my nose when shaving it gives a close presentable acceptable shave when paired together with the right blade choice.

    Another enjoyable 3 pass + pick ups close comfortable shave with no errors to report...Finishing to the shave off with a generous splash of Blue Stratos ASL.

    My face is feeling super smooth & smelling divine.;)

    Keep safe, and enjoy your day ladies & gentlemen.:cool:

    Greetings,
    A new shave set up to start the weekend... Finishing my month of using Indian made DE blades with the Gillette Winner Platinum which was a superb match paired together with the Parker 92r made a smooth, sharp, & efficient Indian made duo...I can't remember the last time i used the Razorock"WTP?!" soap and forgot it takes a bit more time to build a lather, which for me isn't a big issue i found after the soap has been bloomed in tepid tap water for few minutes I'm rewarded with a rich, creamy slick lather leaving a good post shave feeling to my face. after the shave.

    A enjoyable 3 pass +pick ups close comfortable shave with no errors to report.

    Finishing the shave off with a few generous squirts of Milton-Lloyd ~ no.9 Victor EDP to the pulse points.

    My face is feeling smooth & smelling divine.;)

    Stay safe, and enjoy the start of the weekend ladies & gentlemen.:cool:

    Greetings,

    Early morning shave,

    Last outing of the Indian Gillette Winner Platinum to finish my month run of using Indian made blades...Throughout the month each of the Various Indian made blades i have used have performed wonderfully in each razor i have paired them up with resulting in close comfortable error-free shaves...If i had to pick a favourite which is a hard choice i would go for the Gillette 7 O'clock Super Platinum (black),however there is a great amount of other Indian blades that i have that are equally as good... I have a great fondness for Subcontinent made shaving products, not because they are inexpensive no because they have provided me with close comfortable error-free shaves.
    The parker 22r /Indian Gillette winner platinum was another wonderful smooth efficient duo mowing through my stubble with ease...A great shave to finish my shaving week off.

    Another enjoyable 3 pass + pick ups close comfortable shave with no errors to report...Finishing to the shave off with a generous splash of Superdrug ~ Forest Fresh ASL.

    My face is feeling super smooth & smelling divine.;)

    Keep safe, and enjoy your day ladies & gentlemen.:cool:

    Greetings,

    (Face & Head Shave) (Shaving Cream Week)

    A new shave set up to start the bank holiday weekend...It's been a long time since i added my EG DE89 to my razor rotation.
    The next month or more i shall be using Russian made DE blades from the Moscow & ST Petersburg plants.
    Starting with the Astra SP blades, which along with the Gillette 7 0'clock Sharp edge ( Yellow) where two of the first blades i purchased to learn my technique and gain my shaving confidence from when entering the wonderful world of traditional wet shaving. Both of these blades are well suited to my skin type, and have always paired together well with each razor. The EG DE89 paired together excellently with the Astra SP making a smooth efficient duo...I find the Astra SP blades get better with each shave.

    A enjoyable close comfortable face & head shave with no errors to report...Finishing the shave off with a few squirts of X-Bolt EdT to the pulse points.

    My face & precious swede are feeling silky smooth and smelling divine.;)

    Stay safe, and enjoy the start of the long bank holiday weekend ladies & gentlemen.:cool:
