My fat-handled Tech gave me great shaves all week. Every morning I asked myself why I even have other razors, this Tech fits me so well. First thing Saturday morning, I wake up with the urge for a little infidelity. :oops: Why? I can't explain it. But it was really fun :twisted: and I'm going to do it again!

Edwin Jagger Sandalwood Shaving Soap

Merkur HD 34G

Castel Forbes Lime Shaving Cream
Vulfix #2235 Super
Merkur HD 34G
Speik aftershave

It´s over a year since I last tried a Feather. No irritation yet, and the shaves were good. The blade feels thinner than my other blades, and it seems to cut the fine stubble below my mouth very easy, indeed.

After the usual 1-2 minute hot towel prep:

1964 Macys badger
Lumene AS balm
Tom Ford 'Urban Musk' EdP

This old French made razor is excellent for a nice change of pace. The thin scalloped head feels unlike any other I've used before, when waltzing around my face. I'll get this little gem out a few times a month.

BBS results,
