A Wonderful Razor the Le Grelot 6/8 lent to me by a good friend as I had never tried a French Straight before , I have to say I really like it , lovely weight and balance.

Continuing my trials with the PAA Soaps today I used John Frum , this one is the CK6 base that I never used before great PAA performance and post shave not too much different except the lather is possibly cleaner and lighter, Another fragrance that wasn't really my cup of tea. Hard to describe but for me in was not a classic Neroli but a bit towards a Neroli which I never enjoy. Purely on Fragrence it goes to position 3 in my Table , Preformance of all has been excellent.

My League Table so Far :)

1. Gondolier
2. Solstice

This one is a right mixed bag of cheap & cheerful . Boots Witch hazel & Tea Tree
face wash which i use before and after the shave, followed by Executive Shaving Pre Shave, Ariana & Evans Kaizen, Feather ASD2s and a Yaqi Dice 26mm brush, and i won’t forget my £4 collapsible shave bowl which is a delight
