The razor: Received today in trade (many thanks to @Tony'schin for an excellent bundle of goodies sent very quickly) This was my first ever use of an injector razor and I decided to try all 3 plates to gauge aggressiveness, which made it a bit of a fussy process, but I ended up feeling that plate 3 was perhaps the one I'll start with next shave. I'm going to have to practice to get it just right but I had a burn-free shave at the end of the day and I enjoyed the new experience.
The brush: I will admit that I got this because I just liked the olde-style look of it. As a brush it's nothing spectacular. The tips of the bristles are a little more prickly than, say, a Yaqi or Razorock synthetic, but its narrow knot makes it good for smaller diameter shaving pots/bowls and it doesn't lack backbone. It lathered fine and held plenty of soap so I didn't need to keep re-loading it for face lathering.
The soap: A very fresh and zingy scent, and a good lather that's typical of TGS products. This is the second of three TGS soaps I am trying this week having been impressed with their Abysso previously. Yesterday was Blueberry Grapes, today the Lemon Mint and tomorrow I'll be trying Pino Alpestre.
That's all for now ya'll good TSR folks...have a great evening!
