Tuesday, January 24th

Razor: Cobra Classic (loaner)
Blade: Feather Professional
Brush: Rudy Bey Beehive
Pre-Shave: Musgo Real Glyce Lime
Soap: D.R. Harris Arlington
A/S: Alt Innsbruck

This was my 2nd use of the Cobra Classic and today's shave was even better than the first. During yesterday's shave, I skipped the against the grain pass feeling as if two passes was sufficient. By the end of the day though, there was considerably more stubble than usual. Today, I added the against grain pass and I achieved a true BBS without irritation. I am so impressed with the Cobra that I broke down and ordered one. :lol: -Czech & Speake, H.L. Thater, Mergress, Rocnel, Boellis Panama,Castle Forbes, Asylum Shave Works and more.

Wednesday's shave

Post by Flash G » Wed Jan 25, 2012 1:18 am

D.R Harris Lavender Shaving Cream (old metal tube)
Simpson Tulip 2
Edwin Jagger DE86
Wilkinsomn Sword
D.R. Harris Arlington Milk

Tuesdays Shave:
Musgo Real Shaving Cream (fin)
The rest of the set-up as above

I used up the last remnants of my Musgo Real Shaving Cream. The tube was bought in 2007, so I'll have to order another tube :D

On Monday I tried a mulitblade for the first time in close to five years, which is when I started with DE's. The shave was OK, but not as close as with a DE, even after three passes. I found it unsettling to have to use pressure when shaving. It was very nice to go back to my lovely Edwin Jagger DE86 the following day :D
