Monday: 19 Dec 2016 ~* SOTD *~

Brush: ... Proraso Boar
Lather: ... C.O. Bigelow Cream (Proraso Green)
Razor: ... Gillette 1959 (E-4) "Fat Boy" (setting 3)
Blade: ... Gillette Nacet (3rd shave)
A/S ....... Proraso Crema Liquida Dopobarba (green)

This is my 3rd shave with the Nacet blade. I first tried it in my Gillette 1958 3-piece Tech, then in my Gillette #58. Otherwise it is the same setup each time.

This blade is much better for me when compared to the Gillette Silver Blue blade I tried last week. I used the same setup with the GSB for limited variables, except I tried my Gillette 1958 TV razor instead of the "Fat Boy".

So far the Nacet has performed well all 3 times.
:D

The Proraso Crema Liquida Dopobarba (green) is similar to the old formula, but I would still prefer to have the old formula available.

Tuesday: 20 Dec 2016 ~* SOTD *~

Brush: ... Proraso Boar
Lather: ... C.O. Bigelow Cream (Proraso Green)
Razor: ... Gillette 1958 TV Superspeed
Blade: ... Gillette Nacet (4th shave)
A/S ....... Proraso Crema Liquida Dopobarba (green)

Another good shave from the Nacet, though it may be fading. When it is time to switch blades, I plan to try the Personna "Hospital Use" or "Med Prep" blades that Gary (brothers) so kindly sent me.
