P & B Pall Mall
PAL S/S Adjustable
Schick Proline [ 7 ]
Myrsol Antesol A/S Lotion
After using the Supply SE I chose to use the PAL, whose looks may have influenced the design of the the Supply. For a long time the PAL was my favourite Injector confined to the use of a single blade.
The Shave was very enjoyable and the overall Shave finish good. I am finding that these days I am enjoying using the larger AC/SE razors which cover more ground per stroke, as I have no problems using them in even the awkward places.
It was my first use of the Pall Mall which lathered well, but i found the scent a bit hard to work out as it seemed rather weak.

First of 2 weeks of holiday shaves, and my first ever open comb shave, kindly on loan from @Satanfriendly really love the ATT SS handle, tried to show respect to the OC head and it wasn’t that scary really though I did get a couple of nicks which I think were just me catching small bumps that were already there anyway. Felt very nice though the lighting in my holiday home bathroom is garbage, and the room gets virtually no natural light. It did feel like I was smooth for a couple of hours longer than normal though which is good.

The performance of the E-R 1912 razor felt amazingly efficient with the fifth and final use of the Gem PTFE blade, it feels more slighty more efficient than my 1912,(USA) but with the same smoothness. efficiency is important with a razor/blade match, but equally important for me personally, is smoothness. The Personna Gem PTFE Blade seems to be really suited to my skin type, i haven't get tried other SE blades,which is something i'll will do in the future, but for now i'll stick with the Personna GemPTFE coated blades. Another excellent smooth efficient 3 pass sublime shave with no errors to report...
Finishing the shave off with a generous splash of Geoffrey Beene ~ Grey Flannel A/S lotion...Wonderful stuff.
My face is feeling smooth refreshed, & smelling devine.
