A Special Combo!

• Pre: Clearly Natural -- Vitamin E
• Razor: EverReasy Streamline
• Blade: Feather "spineless" (1)
• Brush: Rudy Vey Arabian Knight Black Fibre
• Soap: MdC -- Fougère
• AS: Krampert's Finest Bay Rum

Image

The coveted Streamline/Feather combo may not be for me. I'll give it another go but I feel a bit irritated and the shave wasn't as close as I usually get. Again, the MCMXIV is turning out to be a game changer in regards to what I think about my other razors. I should take the '14 along with the Streamline on my trip to see how this Feather "spineless" blade performs in the different presentations. The geometry of this razor head might not be as good for me as I once thought. Thanks again MCMXIV.

Make it a great day for others!

Wow, DFS+ in just 2 passes! Incredible! Best shave in recent memory. I guess this was just about the perfect combo of
razor, blade, soap and brush, especially my new "greatest" shave soap.
Enjoying wet shaving, again.
