You called it Gordon. That's why you're the Duke. My wife and I are essentially maintaining separate residences for the next month or so. That means it's time to eat poorly, watch too much TV, use bad language, and grow a goatee :)

Tuesday Night:

Musgo Real Glyce pre-wash

Schick Injector razor (Type M-Adjustable, set at 3)
Schick Injector blade (NOS US-made, Super Chromium/Teflon Coated)

Omega 63171 Pure Badger brush
Cella soft shaving soap

Thayer's Lemon Witch Hazel (Astringent)

Time to change the blade. I think my next injector shave will be with a German Schick blade, for comparison. I also have CVS blades to try.

Gareth, I've heard the earlier Schick Injector razors were pretty aggressive. Was this your first Injector shave? How did it go?
