Prep: Bulldog Sensitive face wash, warm water & face cloth
Bowl: Executive Shaving handmade
Brush: Muhle STF
Cream: Castle Forbes Lime
Razor: Razorock Game Changer 0.68 on ATT Colossus handle
Blade: Voskhod
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.

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.

Pre-shave: Cold water splash.
Soap: Martin de Candre Fougere.
Brush: Shavemac ' The Flat Top' Slivertip.
Bowl: Giles Shaving Co - Spotty Pedstal Wet Shaving Bowl.
Razor: Rex Ambassador (1.5).
Blade: Astra SP (Green) (3).
Post: Cold water, Floid Vigoroso, followed by Ibiza Aloe - Aloe Vera Gel.

Another fab shave with the Rex dialed down low; sublime lather this morning - 2 passes and I am DFS+.

When the wave of Floid hit my face, the gentle tingle told me it was a great shave. The Ibiza Aloe is amazing, feels like liquid silk on the skin (as ever YMMV).

All the best,

Chris
