    Barb with a brush was a pleasant experience, shave was really nice slight warmth from the alum but it was gone in a few seconds. Best shave with this razor yet. [​IMG]

    This morning I decided to give my usual Fat Boy a rest and went with a '49 NDC Super Speed.

    Especially with a fresh, sharp, GSB blade, it proved to me yet again that I don't need a super aggressive razor to get a smooth, close and comfortable shave.

    9393ED5E-8F79-4453-A6EC-A24070679F7A.jpeg Four days of growth to get through had no time really. Grabbed the 66 Aristocrat Adjustable and loaded it up with a Nacet. First pass on 6 and the remaining two on 5. The Henri et Victoria - Terre d’Henri is an excellent performing and smelling soap and a little goes a long way. 30 second load with the Chubby 2 left me with enough for 4 or 5 passes. Both the soap and brush are lather monsters. Finished off with the matching balm and some Guerlain Homme l’Eau Boisee. Perfect and well needed shave.

    Rating: 5 / 5
