    Cold Water Rinse
    Ingram Shave Cream
    Oscar11 Synthetic
    Gillette Double Ring (1905)
    Gillette Silver Blue
    CWR
    Osage Rub

    The Ingram Shave Cream was applied with the Oscar11 Synthetic. One pass and touch ups with the Gillette Double Ring Razor with a Gillette Silver Blue blade gave me a close, comfortable shave. After a cold water rinse I finished off with Osage Rub. I am clean, smooth, and refreshed...

    Decent razor, efficient but not overly aggressive. Close but no BBS cigar for me.

    One of the easiest and hardest Gillette razors to find too. Easy in that is same razor used in 46 - 48 Milord sets in gold plate, the hard part is to find the razor in nickel plate.

    1947 1st iteration Super Speed, Bic Chrome blade, shave 2
    [​IMG] [​IMG]

    After using the 46 - ?? Ranger Tech yesterday I can confirm these 2 razors are identical sans the handle. The first unique Super Speed is really the 2nd iteration version as seen below. End result close but no BBS cigar finish.
