It doesn't matter how expensive your gear is you can still have a poor shave. Thankfully I finished off with the stunning Fougère Royal, so not all bad.

Enjoy your weekend gents.

Greetings,

A new shave set up to start the weekend...Recently i've been having some fantastic shaves with stuff i've had in my shaving den that i've hardly gave any attention to..The trig stainless blade which is made by the Treet co in pakistan.I've used these blades a few times and have always had good shaving results with them, today was no exception, matching it up with the R41 resulted in a flawless efficient 2 pass + picks BBS shave with no errors to report. The third pass today wasn't required, my face was near bbs on the second pass,after a quick pick up pass my face was silky smooth..A excellent shave.

Finishing the shave off with a generous dollop of aloe vera gel.

My face is feeling smooth, & smelling devine.
;)

Enjoy the start of the weekend, ladies & gentlemen.
:cool:

Today's shave:



- L&L Grooming After The Rain
- Maggard "Blue Haze" 2-Band
- Game Changer .68 with MR11 handle and Feather blade
- Sôi classic aftershave

:)

This brush is quite huge in the face. The measurements of the knot are 24/57 with a slight glue bump, and in my mind it would probably be better if it were set 5mm deeper into the handle. It still has enough rigidity to not be floppy, but not enough backbone to give you a massage.

I had a later than usual Shave, having been up in the night. The Shave was smooth and comfortable enough, but I was rather disappointed at the quality of the finished Shave as this combo normally delivers a top notch Shave. I could of course be comparing it to the Shave of yesterday which was rather good.

Saturday 10th November

Yaqi Sagrada Familia - Wickham Super Smooth V2, Toasted Coconut (sample) - Schick G1 - NOS Schick Platinum Plus #3 - Alum - Quorum A/S - Gillette Pro 3in1 Balm

The shave was wonderful today. Wickhams new SS formula is a triumph in performance and scent.

Unfortunately after the shave while cleaning and drying, the G1's handle crumbled away from the head in dramatic manner. I'm now on the search for a replacement handle, as I do not want to consign the head to the Schick graveyard.
