Razor: Razorock Game Changer 0.68 on ATT Colossus handle
Post: Warm then cold water rinse, Castle Forbes Lime ASB
Nice 3 pass DFS, W/W/X, minor touchup & ATG above jawline only. In fact one of my very best DE shaves to date. Getting good results from Voskhod & Rapira Swedish supersteel blades despite not liking them at all when used in open comb razor. Maybe these ‘medium sharp’ blades really suit this razor for me. The ATT Colossus is an absolute beast of a handle, in a good way.
Pre-shave:- Cold Water straight from the tap Brush:- RazoRock Plissoft Synth. 24/57mm knot Soap/Cream:- Arko (4 shaving sticks grated into a 250ml plastic tub) Bowl/Scuttle:- Captain's Choice Razor/Blade:- Gillette Slim Adjustable G4 1961 / Vintage NOS Gillette Super Stainless (spoiler) #1 Post-shave:- Thayers Witch Hazel & Tea Tree Oil / WAHL Bay Rum Aftershave Splash Fragrance:- L'Eau Bleue D'issey Pour Homme
8 days to go for the whole month of Arko February shave.
WSP Spring Rain
Ikon 102 / Bulldog
Pinaud Clubman Classic Vanilla ASL
Three days growth erased in comfort by the Ikon/Perma-Sharp combo.
The way that this razor cuts reminds me of my Futur, very deliberate and assured.
Spring Rain provided protection and glide, and an irritation free finish was the result.

Just completed an Injector Rotation and moving on to the Heavyweights of the Shaving World. Today I used the Claymore and Ikon Handle for the first time , not as long or as heavy as the original and feels good in the hand. The Shave was really nice, providing that you trust in using the weight of the Razor to do the work you are assured of a good close Shave. I feel sure that those who have tried the heavier AC/Se Razors and suffer from cuts and weepers and irritation are using too much pressure, as since my first 2 or 3 Shaves with them I have had no problems. In fact I feel more confident using AC/SE Razors than DEs.
