A nice two and a half pass shave this morning. I do like the scent of the Vanilla and Tobacco Leaf, it is more of an Autumn scent to me, as it's quite windy outside today, it fits.

Coldwater shower and shave -

All good - a week's growth coming off - not that good actually - in the last week I have learned - that my boiler - is beyond repair - I have been accidentally flooding my downstairs neighbour's flat - nothing drastic - slow drip - enough to damage their plaster - insurance claim. Also I lost my job - entirely Covid related - happy days - let's go from £500 a week - to Universal Credit - a system - most would agree is not fit for purpose. - I.
Hope you find something soon.

The more I use this Razor with a Plate 2 the better it becomes. Though I have not yet Shaved with a Proline/ Feather Pro blade on board, the quality of finish I am getting is up there with the likes of an ATT SE1, RR S/S Hawk V3-A plate. Now for me is ahead of the more favoured Occams- Enoch, but it is rather hefty which is likely to put people off.

SOTD 20th August
The usual set up as its been all week. The 4th and final shave with the Lord Platinum blade accompanied by the Star Model 100. Great first 2 passes - smooth and sharp.
The third pass however, the blade dropped off nearly instantly. Became tuggy and started to irritate my skin. Think 3 shaves is the max for this blade. Performance was up there ( for me anyway) with the Shark SS and Supermax Blue Diamond. Great lather once again from WSP soap.
Stay safe people and enjoy your shaves
