Really enjoying the Cobra (and this is from someone who shaves with the Feather) with the Kai mild blades. I find them smoother and less harsh than the Feathers. Great razor.

Soap: MWF (with DR Harris Lavender shave stick for jawline touch-up)
Brush: Omega , set in a Rudy Vey handle
Razor: Cobra Classic with Kai Mild blade (7)

Conditioner: Vinegar rinse
Post: Clubman AS

DFS with 2+ passes and a little extra work on the jawline with the Harris shave stick (per Gordon's excellent suggestion).
Had to work around 3 blemishes(razor bumps??) acquired last week while travelling and using an Atra post= market handle and a cartridge
well past its useful life (brought Sensor refills in error).
Nice to be back home with all my familiar tools readily at hand

Enjoying wet shaving, again.
