    Thanks.....I guess I'd blame my cuts&Knicks on the razors-or my use of them. But they're the most comfortable for me.

    Razor: Gillette super speed X1- Mfg 1952, nice smooth milder razor but with a wider Kai SS Blade it brings it up a notch to my liking.
    Blade: Kai SS (2) excellent blade, Sharp & smooth with excellent longevity. Extra wide by 9/1000 of inch, great for milder razors.
    Soap: Razorock The Dead Sea, nice unique scent with excellent lather qualities+ one of my favorite soaps.
    Brush: Yaqi 24mm "Viper" boar(1st use) excellent lather generator, great split end smooth tips, great scrubber + great lather painter. [​IMG] this color of handle and feel.
    Pre shave: Brush wash whole face with CeraVe hand bar cleanser + a dollop of clear Aloe Vera gel on the cleaned beard area.
    Prep: Cold water rinse after each pass of 2 + pickups.
    Post shave: Razorock The Dead Sea aftershave with witch hazel + a dollop of CeraVe balm.
    Results: CCS,DFS,BBs + no irritation + no weepers= [​IMG]Excellent shave with my Gillette 1952 SS + Kai SS blade.

    Took my new to me 1934 Aristocrat for its first spin in about 75 years, and loved it.
    The blade bank it came with had 3 NOS E4 blades, an R3, and a Schick from idk when in it.
    I wonder if it was used new, put away, and later tried by an heir or what...we'll never know.
    What I do know is I put a new Feather blade in it and whipped it around like a tech without a single nick or irritation afterwards.
    The audible feedback is there, a very rewarding sound when shaving. Compared to my 1938 2nd gen French No.15 Aristocrat that chewed me up I'd say the 1938 is a MUCH milder razor, but of course YMMV!
