    Tuesday OCtober 1

    First OC shave of the month.
    Hitting leadoff, a 113 year old, 1906 Gillette single ring model 100.

    Bowl/Scuttle - GP12
    Soap - La Savonniere du Moulin (A+ in my book)
    Brush - Rubberset 400-3
    Blade - Feather HI SS (3)
    Razor - 1906 Gillette model 100
    Post Shave - OSMA Pierre alum, Stirling Ramblin' Man A/S Splash

    Shave rating 5 of 5

    What a nice shave this razor gave. No wonder these razors were popular. This soap might be my favorite soap as well. I know it's not MWF, I'll do that tomorrow on a "W" day. 2 pass shave with NO need for partial cleanup passes. 1st pass was WTG and DFS+ and I could have stopped there but I got greedy. Did the 2nd pass XTG on my face and ATG on my neck area. Greedy part came with the ATG on my neck area and I pressed a bit too hard to try to get everything in the 2nd pass and caused myself some irritation that I felt when applying the alum and A/S. Other than that misstep on my part, a GREAT shave from this old-timer.

    Tomorrow, considering another old-timer, a 1918 Gillette Bulldog.

    Happy OCtober and great shaves everyone.

    Nope. British Aristocrat Jr is a similar shaver to this one.
