NEW with CoonCatBob "Improved" handle
Kai
Real Shave Co Sensitive cream
delong Badger
generic witch hazel
Armani Black Code a/s





Second shave with both the Kai and the NEW w/ Improved handle, much smoother than the first, not sure if that is adapting technique or dulling of the blade. Very smooth and very close, no weepers this time and just a little irritation. I'm loving this hefty razor, and the blade is pretty nice too.

Lucky Tiger Molle Brushless Shaving Cream
Merkur HD/Derby Extra
Thayers Witch Hazel w/Aloe
Lucky Tiger Vanishing Cream After Shave Moisturizer

Early and quick shave this morning to make an appointment but a most satisfying shave that was not lacking a single thing (except the brush). Essentially BBS with a nice two passer, XTG down and in and XTG up and in plus a little touch up along the jaw line. This mornings kit is becoming a favorite.
Good shaving,

Gary

It sure is Gary - thanks for the enabling on this one, while I was always curious on LT I probably would have not gone this route without your brushless series. Now as for the LT Vanishing Cream - this is a really good after shave treatment that I use just about every morning and night.

Fun, old time (75 years) stuff!
Good shaving,

Gary

British Ever-Ready
Gem Blue Star blade
D.R. Harris Arlington Soap
Trumper's Limes A/S

Better shave today with the Ever-Ready. Going to research better blades, though - the Gem's just have a "whack-and-hack" feel to them that seems a little dangerous.
