    Thank You Gary and indeed it is a fine shave, both head and face, cleaner than a hound's tooth. :D

    9A79B4B5-C845-4323-8B0D-E9C649DE8FBF.jpeg The mid-week shave! Though really it was Victoria Day here in Canada so we have only four work days this week. Happy Hump Day!

    I have been on a fine run of A’crats lately and though the 34G isn’t an A’crat it is a golden beauty nonetheless. Today’s razor of choice the Gillette Aristocrat Junior made in England. This flat bottom beauty is weighty and in quite minty condition. Fantastic shaver! There is just so much quality in the feel of this razor. Not as fancy as it’s other siblings but it is quality throughout. Loaded up with a fresh Gillette Platinum.

    Soap of the day Artisan Soaps Leather. I am just amazed at how wonderful this leather scent is. It’s addictive! I could live in this tub! Sad but true! Great soap period.

    Lovely three pass shave and BBS achieved. Just had to linger and enjoy the scent! Topped it off with some English Leather AS and John Varvatos Dark Rebel...a leather extravaganza! So good! Enjoy the sun, your day and your shaves! Stay safe!

    Thanks Gary. Actually I didn't notice a lot of difference in the handles. If anything. the ball end handle makes it a little easier ti maneuver a short comb head,
