Tabac Thu 21st SOTD Soap Tabac Brush Yaqi 26mm Rainbow Razor Gillette New LC Blade Euromax Super Stainless 4th Post & Aftershave
Ice Water + Special Thayers Mix
Clubman Whisky Woods
Ice water shave today. Tabac is truly marvelous! Super thick, creamy and slick with unique scent. Face lathering with the brush was very satisfying & created a perfect lather!
Shave with razor and blade combo was good again. Smooth and sharp. 3 multiple passes with no issues again..nice. Rating 9.5/10 between BBS and DFS result.
Now competed 9 consecutive Daily Shaves with the V3-OC the last 5 have been with a Schick Proline on board, Todays Shave was trouble free with a top notch close all round finish, that I have come to expect from it. Penned a little Review in the Single Edge/Blade section.

I miss-judged loading the Simpson today for a face lather, the brush held enough easily for 4 passes, i hate wasting the OSP soap.
So a lovely chin covering and a nice easy 3 pass shave with the Model T /Ladas combo, the blade is still OK, although i have decided to bank them after 3 shaves so i can get through these trial packs.
Would i buy the Ladas again - Yes, if i actually need anymore blades in 15yrs time.
BBS, Feeling and smelling real good,
Stay safe and enjoy your day All.
I fitted the new T bar and doors to the razor but they threw it out a mile, i re-fitted the originals and sent some photos to the CS team at Rockwell, i will see what happens next.
When i checked them side by side the replacements did not look right.
The replacement doors are on the right and look as if the "T" top is under stress to the fixing bar.
Where as the original set on the left is flat across the top.

Trying out the Leaf razor. Very good shave and it feels really comfortable to use. Feels a little bit too much like a cartridge razor for me to enjoy on a regular basis but still, really nice to use and it gave me a BBS shave.

I decided to use my travel set-up today. If I don't it probably won't get much use over the next 6 months. I watch a video last night by GeoFatBoy on shaving against the grain, although he only shows his technique on the cheeks I tried it this morning. He claims it's gentler on the skin. Anyway, a decent and comfortable two pass plus the ATG on my cheeks this morning. A few areas on my neck could do with touch up, I don't bother while I'm not working or seeing anyone at the moment.
