Wednesday February 23

Savile Row 3824
Trumper's Rose Cream
Gem Open Comb Micromatic
Treet SE blade (1)
Aqua Velva A/S
Dolce&Gabbano EDT

First shave ever with this razor or any SE for that matter. Must say it was a very good shave and much more comfortable than I expected. I could use this. The one thing that I did notice was having to the rinse the head off more frequently rather than just flipping to the other side. On one occassion I just automatically flipped the razor and put the back of the head on my face. Didn't remove many whiskers :lol:

Found some Trumper tubes from the house move 5 years ago. Tubes must be 7 years old and have been performing beautifully. I can't say enough about how these metal tubes extend the life of Trumper creams.

Razor - Slim Adjustable (set to 3)
Blade - Personna
Brush - Altesse
Soap - TOBS lavender cream
Toner - Thayers alcohol-free witch hazel
A/S - St Charles Shave lavender balm

Very nice shaving courtesy of the SA and Personna combo. The St Charles Shave balm really smells great and feels good after a nice splash of the alcohol-free witch hazel. Is it possible to love shaving too much? :)

Ron, Good eye ( chuckle )...members DO pay attention to these little daily check-ins. Well, I was given a few of these medical Personna blades and I wanted to check one out without losing any shaves off the LB blade I have in the #58. The easiest thing to do was just pop the Personna in another razor and the Krona is a good choice for checking a blade that one has never used. If it's a problem in the Krona it's going to be a problem in ANY least this is true for me.
