    Greetings,

    Up with the larks again this morning.

    Carrying on with my Russian Made DE Blade run...

    A new shave set up to start the weekend...Its been a while since i last used the efficient Yaqi katana of which i will be using with all my shave sets this week...The Voskhod T.C. blade i find gets smoother with each outing they ain't the most aggressive Russian made blade for me but it matched together perfectly with the assertive katana making a smooth efficient duo...The Katana is one of the very few razors i found my shaving angle after the first 5-7 seconds feeling comfortable shaving with it throughout the shave.

    What i like about the Katana is the audio feedback which tells me it's cutting through my stubble and i have found the right shaving angle...The efficiency of this razor is amazing good i was very near BBS smooth after the second pass on both my face & head shave but carried on just for the sheer pleasure of the shave & to use up the remaining wonderful lather the Vitos Vegetale soap had provided....A comfortable impressive performance from the 1/2' Voskhod.

    A enjoyable close comfortable BBS face & head shave with no errors to report...Finishing the shave off with a generous splash of P&G ~ Old Spice Original ASL.

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

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

    Greetings,

    A wonderful early morning shave....I've mentioned before, i've taught myself never to judge/doubt a shaving soap or cream because of it's cheap price tag, the vast majority of my shave set ups contain inexpensive soaps & creams which have all performed with satisfactory results. The Vie- Long shave stick is absolutely superb, not just for it's price tag, but most importantly for it's performance & post shave feel.

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

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

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