I experimented with a two pass shave today, across and against the grain. Not bad, but not as smooth as the 3 pass starting with the grain.

This morning I experimented with one pass north to south, followed by one pass south to north. Lousy results. This only serves to confirm that my usual 3 pass shave (wtg-xtg-atg) is the best way for me to get the results I want.

Weber DLC razor
Treet 7 Days blade
Plisson/L'Occitane brush
CO Bigelow SC
Osage Rub/Witch Hazel w/aloe
M&L Florida Water cologne w/added menthol

New blade today and it's a dandy. I had to check to see if I put the blade in the Weber it was that smooth. An extremely nice shave today and looking forward to using this blade some more. Now whether it will last a full 7 days as advertised, we'll find out. Now go enjoy your day folks.

Parker 94r razor
Treet 7 Days blade
Omega 10066 boar brush
TSD Lemongrass SS w/2x menthol
Osage Rub/Witch Hazel w/aloe
TSD Lemongras A/S w/2x menthol

Another face freezer of a shave! Like it! The Parker 94r is considered a somewhat aggressive razor but with the 7 Days blade it felt like a little pussy cat. What a smooth combo. 2 pass, with a very little touch up, and I"m BBS with no problem. Really liking this blade. Now go enjoy your day folks

Still enjoying the dependable frostbite cold sensation and the top shelf face-lathering performance of the Krampert's soap. Making an efficient 3 pass and done. This tub should have another 2 or 3 weeks or so before the soap runs out.
