    Thanks Gary...once again I put this in the wrong post, but the use of my Gillette Sensor Deuce razor bails me out luckily, right? At least I didn't put it in CLEAN JOKES.

    DE SOTD, Sat, Oct 9th 2021- Hard to beat a smooth and Sharp blade like the GSB with a Gillette Fatboy gliding it IMO.

    Razor : Gillette E4 Fatboy- Mfg 1959,4th qtr- Excellent adjustable razor, well designed and built to last generations of shaving.
    Blade: Gillette silver blue(GSB)(1)- Sharp & smooth with reasonable longevity, top tier blade for myself, 1st shave will tell most folks how excellent a blade it is, Cadillac of Gillette blades IMO.
    Soap: Speick, nice mild spicy scent with excellent lather qualities.
    Brush: Yaqi 22mm (AKA, ever-Helpful)2band badger, great lather generator, soft tips, excellent scrubber + good lather painter.
    Pre shave: Brush (24mmCashmere) 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: Witch hazel beard area cleaning + Nivea refreshing AS + a dollop of CeraVe moisturizer lotion (excellent + scentless balm)
    Results: CCS,DFS,BBS + no irritation + no weepers= [​IMG]Excellent shave with my Gillette Fatboy with a GSB blade.

    Have some great shaves!
