Stirling margaritas in the arctic arrived, thought I would give it a go. Worked really well, I was not sure how I would like it as I was not impressed with a sample of Mountain Man I tried. Loads of lather, so much slickness. A really good shave today, the Personal Barber cheapo razor worked great. I seem to get a better shave from it than my Edwin Jagger DE89.

I just wish I had ordered the matching Witch Hazel to go with the soap as the smell is wonderful, will be great when the UK finally starts to get some sun.

Yaqi Evil Zebra
Razorock Hawk
Schick Proline P-30 (9)
Omega Via Barberia Aquae
Nivea Balm & Davidoff Cool Water

A great shave, the blade can reach 10 uses at least and maybe push a handful more out of it. Been a while since I used both the Aquae and Davidoff, they complement each other very well in my opinion, glad the Aquae never sold in my listing.

A slight mishap after loading the brush I dropped it in a full sink, a few shakes and a lot of work gave a very good lather, slightly wetter than normal but it did a cracking job.

Blade: Schick #3
Razor: PAL Adjustable
Soap: Nuavia Blu
Brush: Black Anvil Custom 2 band finest
Post: D R Harris Arlington Splash
EDC: D R Harris Arlington

A great three pass shave achieve with the brilliant well balanced PAL set on "R" Most Aggressive.
Brush and soap combo worked up a beautiful slick lather with loads of cushion.

A little sunshine today so I went for one of my summer favourites "Arlington." I just wish the fragrance had more longevity on me.

Enjoy your shaves! :)

Stirling Syn. 26mm
Stirling Baker Street
PAL S/S Adjustable
Schick Proline [ 5 ]
Tuff Green A/S lotion

Today`s Shave confirmed to me why I rate the PAL as one of my Top Injectors. Last Time out I varied the blade settings, and as a result had a rather unsatisfactory shave in terms of comfort/ efficiency.
Today with an excellent Lather and the Razor on a mid setting, it felt good in terms of nice blade feel and efficient whisker removal. Near the end of the Shave by using a light touch to do the polishing up strokes, obtained a superb all round finish.It looks like this and the Type F may well be vying for my top spot in the Injector rankings.

"PAL as one of my Top Injectors"

They say great minds think alike Mike. :rolleyes::)

I couldn't agree with you more. The PAL is an awesome bit of kit.

Razor - Lord L6
Blade - Voskhod (8)
Brush - Zenith B07
Soap - Arko
Post - RSC Balm
AS - Eyup Sabri Lemon

I generally get around 3 or 4 shaves with a Vosk, but this one seems to have gone much further - I think it was down to using it with 2 very mild heads for the majority of the shaves.

I have used my Zenith B07 for a few soaps and so far I have found it has worked the best with the Arko puck.
