First shave today with a single-edge:

British Ever-Ready (1912 head)
Gem Blue Star blade
Tweezerman brush
Old Spice shaving soap

Results: OK. Patchy and some burn, which is to be expected IMHO the first few times using these razors. A better quality blade would make a difference, too.

It definitely makes you stop and think about technique and angle. And I do want to get that down with the SE razors. I have a couple of antique Stars that I'd like to use, once I get a feel for this.

Gillette Model #58 & LB Wilkinson blade
Plisson #12 HMW
Trumpers Rose hard shaving soap ( old )
D R Harris's Pink A/S
Penhaligon's English Fern

An unusually fine and bountiful lather this AM, a combination of this brush and soap plus the bit better water in the front bathrooom, I think. In any case, it was excellent. Congratulations on 1000 posts Brett!

No EdT this morning; my father-in-law is sensitive to scent. Will be putting on some Kiehl's PH Essence Oil after my in-laws leave.

Sunday morning, and I wanted a thick lather that wouldn't be too challenging for my nose. Not disappointed by AoS Lavender. If I was a fidelity kind of guy, this would be the one for me. (As of this morning, anyway...)

Schick Krona/Gillette Platinum
Vulfix 41S
Connaught vetiver shave cream
Dickinson's witch hazel w/lavender EO and glycerin added
Superior 70 A/S

Fortunately, the scent of the Superior 70 doesn't last long. It functions as a decent A/S for the money.

I'll be out of town this week. My shave kit will be:

BIC Sensitive
T&H Carleton (small) Super Badger
Various shave cream samples
Dickinson's witch hazel w/lavender EO and glycerin added
Trumper's Coral Skin Food

Have a good week, all.

Sunday evening

Hot shower
Aluminum Gillette Tech/ Gillette Platinum
Sephora badger
Proraso shaving cream

Three passes: Wow!!

I bought an Aluminum Handle German Tech from mr. razor and it's the best razor yet for me. Previously, I used a Tech head from the travel version with a Gillette New handle with excellent results. It seems that for me: the lighter, the better.
