38C/Wilkinson Sword Economie
Sabrooney finest
Trumper's almond soap
Lucky Tiger tonic
Fresh Cannabis Santal

Well, the 11 day (33 passes) Light Brigade appears to pull less than this Economie blade. I shall persevere for a couple of days though, because that's how I am.

Friday:

Gillette '58 TV Super Speed / Gillette Super Stainless Steel Blade ("The Spoiler")
Truefitt & Hill Luxury Shave Soap
DR Harris Pink Aftershave

Well, I haven't posted a SOTD in some time, but thought that I would today because of the great experience I've had with these old blades. I found them, along with a pack of Wilkinson Bond cartridges, in the attic of my parents' house when doing some cleaning a few weeks ago. I was a bit leery of using them, due to their age, but figured I'd give them a go.

Well, I can't imagine that they performed any better a day after purchase than they did this week. These truly were superior blades, and I'll be sorry when my tiny supply is gone.

Oh, and the rest of the shave was quite nice, as well.

Dominic, See?....you're REALLY spoiled now ( chuckle ). An eleven shave old LB is still better than a brand new blade that some people think is pretty good, This is what I went through when the really good DE blades started to disappear in the US during the '90s.

Razor: Merkur HD
Blade: Dorco
Brush: Van Der Hagan
Soap: Col. Conk Bay Rum
AS: Thayers Extra Strength After Shave


Got a sample pack of blades today, along with the soap. It probably wasn't the best idea to try a new blade with a new soap, but the shave wasn't that bad.
