A steal at £28
Daylight robbery! :cool: P.
You got a superb buy with that rare B2
It's all about the waiting game boys, I actually random search misspelled razor names, if i find anything wait till that last seconds then bid what i think it's worth.
The bid for this one i placed was £75, only one other bid and i got it.
I did the same on a Kampfe Star lather catcher from France which I nicked for £9.49, what a cheek.

PS Rasoir Antique is a good search. I can let that out now as my gaps are filled.:p;)(y)
PPS " razor for spare or repair" is another. Basically if the seller doesn't know what they have or how it works. I got a NOS PAL injectomatic and a NOS Schick J1 on that search, peanuts.

Omega 11137 boar
Arran Aromatics Bay Citrus
Schick Type F
Schick S/S Single-Japan ( 3 )
GB Grey Flannel A/S Lotion

The F is neither Aggressive or Mild, provided that you get the variable cutting angle right it is quite efficient. Today all went well and the Shave was very smooth and my 30 hour growth has been eliminated, leaving me Parade Ground Ready I have found in the past that a good close Shave with this Razor is quite long lasting,and I am still close shaven at 1815.

SOTN
Pre: Hot Shower
Cream: TOBS Tobacco Leaf
Brush: DS Cosmetic Kevy Shaves
Razor: Gillette Slim Adjustable (5/5/7)
Blade: Gillette Silver Blue (1)
Post: Cold Scottish Water Rinse
A/S: Boots Freshwood
Balm: L’Oreal Birch Sap

A new cream from TOBS. Nice scent, nothing like any other Tobacco scented soap I've tried. Scent notes are tobacco, bergamot, grapefruit, coffee & leather. A very nice sweet blend. It's alway's good to see TOBS bringing out a new cream.

Just watching your video. Was interested to hear how the new shave cream was.

Last night and for the next few days I'll be shaving with ...



Wash with Ach Brito Glyce
Lather up with the mighty Mitchell's Wool Fat Shaving Soap & AP Shave Co 'Winter' Silksmoke 26mm
Shave with Gillette Tech (late 1970s GB) & Treet 7 Days Platinum
Single pass does it for me ...
Witch Hazel < nothing more as I'm really enjoying the simplicity of this at the moment

Oh, my! Oh, my goodness! I shaved with this combination last night and I think it was the smoothest shave I have ever had, almost as if there was no blade in the razor. I actually did two passes (shhh!), I was enjoying it so much. Difficult to make comparisons as, personally I find the regular Treet Platinum to be a perfectly smooth and consistent shave yet other find them dull as a rusty Coke can, but these are a jump up from the regular Treet Platinum, perhaps a big jump up!

What I do like about the regular Treet Platinum is that from new to first to second to third to sometimes fourth shave, the shave is absolutely consistent. The next few shaves will tell me whether this blade is made to follow suit ...​
Well, that lives up to its name - 7 Days, 7 shaves. Truth be told, I was glad to finish the blade as the 7th was not as fine as the previous shaves, certainly not the first 5. Funnily enough, one side developed a little roughness which I noticed on the 3rd shave, but it cleaned up and became smooth again by the end of that shave. Very smooth feeling throughout.
