    Razor 3/6 - Gillette Aristocrat 1938 - 1940 variant
    Shave 1/2 - Bic blade

    If the first shave is any indication I am going to have to walk back what I said about the second and third variants being different shavers. This one with the Bic blade is like the 36 - 37 variant without the alignment issues like my other razor way it shaves. The shave with the Ladas blade will determine that formally tomorrow.

    Brush: PAA Atomic Rocket
    Razor: 1953 Gillette President
    Blade: Shark SS
    Soap: PAA Lo Haiku
    Aftershave: Hai Karate
    This was my first shave with the Gillette President and it was a very smooth shave. That could be because I used a Shark SS blade which is very mild to me. Tomorrow I’ll shave with the President razor loaded with a sharper blade. Either a Voskhod, Bolzano, Rapira Platinum Lux or Gillette Silver Blue. I want to work my way up the blades before I load a Feather blade in this beauty. Using the Shark SS I got a DFS but I think I can improve upon that upping the sharpness of my blade of choice.
