Thick creamy and slick lather from the soap.
Shave with razor paired with blade was very good. Smooth and comfortable. Blade is still good and sharpish
3+1 pass with no issues. Not very efficient though. DFS result. Good post and aftershave. Rating 9/10

I only changed the razor today, otherwise this is the same shave as yesterday. The lather was better today, possibly I loaded the brush with more soap. The final result was almost as smooth as yesterday, the Rockwell is a very good DE razor. Two passes and an excellent result with no irritation or fear of damage. Who could ask for more.

The question was "Will the ATT be on its game today"?
The answer an unequivocal YES.
I enjoyed that, The Proraso and Yaqi whipped up a lovely face lather then the SE1-G gave me a very comfortable BBS finish from 3 passes, i honestly believe there is very little between the L1 plate of the Sabre and the SE1-G, both give fantastic, smooth, comfortable shaves, YMMV of course, maybe the ATT has just a tad more blade feel but they shave the same. neither feel as if they will ever bite you.
If you're thinking about a new GEM type razor and you like a "Mild" shave, either will do the job, although some find both too mild depending on beard type, i suppose its down to how each look and i think both have their positives.
The Sabre is easier to load, the ATT is a 4 pice razor and it looks so cool, the thread pin being a separate small part (if lost the razor is Kaput, i always have the plug in when cleaning this part) during blade changes i do not remove the screw pin just loosening the top cap enough for it to come off then fit the blade refit the cap, check alignment and tighten up.
Stay safe and enjoy your day All.
