Well, I think that I'm too accustomed to my Valobra and Palmolive lather or something. Just not happy. Will give the Harris Almond one more shot tomorrow with my trusty Omega 49.

I keep going back to the Gillette and the SI blade is pretty darned good. I may have to order a load of these too. I seem to be developing a few 'favorite blades'.

Scott, there's nothing like hitting the "sweet spot...." :D

Enjoy your gear,

Friday Shave

Post by Nick Freeh »

Friday the 13th Shave

Razor: 1963 Gillette Slim Adjustable
Blade: Astra Superior Platinum (shave # ??)
Brush: Vulfix VS/5 Boar
Soap/Cream: Cella Soap/Cream
A/S: Dickinson’s Witch Hazel/Pinaud Clubman Vanilla splash

It’s been awhile since I used the Slim, and I can’t remember how many shaves were already on the blade. The Cella produced a bountiful amount of creamy lather. I’m turning into a “Cella Fella”--great stuff. Anyway, the shave was smooth and relaxing and the blade, thankfully, seemed to be at its prime.

The witch hazel followed by the Pinaud splash was a fine finish to an excellent shave.
