    Custom Gillette WW II Tech Razor
    Astra SP Blade
    Rubberset 200-2 Boar (restored) Brush
    Pinaud Clubman Shave Soap
    Dickinson's Witch Hazel w/Egyptian Musk
    Pinaud Clubman After Shave


    I always like the way WW II Techs shave, but this was different. I haven't shaved for a few days, and even with a mild blade, this was great. The handle being a bit wider and heavier really produced an excellent shave..............

    Blade: Feather pro AC 50mm(5)- excellent blade, Sharp & smooth, longevity?
    Soap: Razorock XXX- nice clean scent with excellent lather qualities.
    Brush: Yaqi Rainbow 26mm brown whiskers- excellent lather generator, cloud like soft tips, nice scrubber+ great lather painter.
    Pre shave: Brush wash whole face with CeraVe hand bar cleanser + a dollop of clear Aloe Vera gel on the cleaned beard area.
    Prep: Cold water rinse after each pass of 2 + pickups. WTG+ ATG + pickups.
    Post shave: Razorock XXX with witch hazel + a dollop of Nivea balm.
    Results: CCS,DFS,BBS + no irritation + no weepers = [​IMG] excellent shave with my Yaqi Excalibur with a Feather pro blade, still hitting the sweet spot.(blade starting to drop off a little)

    Greetings,

    Early morning shave,

    last outing of the Gillette Nacet which has been consistently good with every shave throughout the week, today again was no exception i feel as though this blade could give me another 2 shaves at least, but i will retire it as four close error-free shaves is enough for me from any DE blade....The Gillette Nacet is another blade i that have haven't added to my blade rotation for quite a while and i have completely forgotten how good these blades are...Out of the Russian blades i've revisited so far the Nacet are my favourite providing a superb trio of smoothness efficiency, and longevity...A great blade.

    A Enjoyable 3 pass + pick ups close comfortable shave with no errors to report...Finishing to the shave off with a generous splash of Denim Original ASL.

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

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

    Pre:
    Cold wet flannel to my face.
    Pears ~ Transparent Bar Soap With Mint Extracts. + Nuage Menthol shaving Oil.
    Brush: Anbbas 24mm Synthetic.
    Face Lather.

    Blade : Gillette 7 o'clock SE yellow. (D1)
    Razor : Pearl SBF-11.

    Greetings,

    A new shave set up to start the weekend...Continuing with my run of Russian DE blades...The Gillette 7 o'clock SE yellow is another blade from the St. Petersburg plant.

    The SharpEdge i find equally efficient as the Gillette Nacet with a less smoother feel to them, I prefer smoothness over sharpness in a DE blade.. That said, like a lot of DE blades, after the first pass it started to feel smoother....It's also been a while since i last used them ,which take a few shaves for me to get reacquainted with them again.

    An enjoyable 3 pass +pick ups close comfortable shave with no errors to report...Finishing to the shave off with a generous splash of La Toja ASL.

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

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