    "46 "47 Aristocrat is straight, correct and mechanically excellent. All 5's in all directions. And it shaves like nobodies business. Young guy probably haven't heard that term before. ;)

    What is the best razor? I fight between News & Techs. Easy to clean and great shavers. But I still like the TTO Aristocrat/Executive line for ease of shaving. :)
    Who is the best looking woman? Just kidding about the woman, I know what I like. All of them. ;)

    Razor: Gillette SS (Rocket version)X1-MFG 1952 1st qtr, mild razor, nice razor with a Kai SS blade. Carefree shave this morning.
    Blade: Kai SS (1) Excellent blade,Sharp & smooth with great longevity. Wider than a standard Gillette for greater blade exposure.
    Soap: Ogallala bayrum & sandal wood, nice mild scent with great lather qualities, excellent post shave feel.
    Brush: Omega boar brush- One of my first brushes when experimenting with wet shaving(4yrs ago), funk smell at first and totally tortured that brush to get rid of the animal smell, did everything wrong to break in a boar brush properly. All I can say is it is well made and a good brush when broken in. Bought a new one recently and will try the proper method when breaking a boar in when it arrives![​IMG] Boar brushes should always be pre-soaked 2 min> for those who are new to wet shaving.
    Pre shave: Brush wash my whole face with CeraVe hand bar cleanser with a dollop of clear Aloe Vera gel on the cleaned beard area.
    Prep: Cold water rinse after each pass of 2 + pickups. WTG + ATG + pickups.
    Post shave: Witch hazel + Ogallala Bayrum + sandal wood + a tiny dollop of Nivea balm.
    Results: CCS,DFS,BbS + no irritation + no weepers = [​IMG] Excellent shave with my Gillette 1952 SS + a Kai SS blade.

    Have some great shaves! Stay & think safe in these times!
