RazoRock Plissoft 22mm
L`Occitane Cade soap
Alu. Hawk V1 + Windrose Handle
Schick Proline [ 2 ]
Pitralon Polar A/S Lotion

Finished off my AC/SE Razor rotation today using the Alu Hawk with a S/S Handle. With a good lather
it delivered a Shave nearly as good as those attained with its more expensive brethren. I would recommend this Razor to those who wish to experience use of an AC/SE Razor , no need txobreak the

Morning shave

Olive Oil Soap
Mike’s Hungarian Lavender
Thater 4125/2
Ever Ready Streamline
Gem Blue Star (4)
Thayers Witch Hazel (unscented)
Bart’s Lavender Oil Aftershave Lotion
Czech and Speake Oxford and Cambridge EDC

First impressions of the Mike’s are positive, but I will have to experiment a bit to get it just right. I adjusted the angle of attack with the Streamline this morning and hit the sweet spot. Excellent! But I will stick to a maximum of three shaves with the blade in future. It was just beginning to lose its edge by the second pass. Have a great weekend gents.

Prep: Hot towel
Pre shave: Prep
Razor: ‘The Rock’ (Rockwell 6S – #3)
Blade: Gillette Bleue Extra
Brush: New Forest Tubby 1 Finest
Soap: Ariana & Evans | Portrait in Soho
Post: Cold water rinse / Witch Hazel / Chatillon Lux Santal Auster Post-Shave Salve
Fragrance: Amouage Tribute Attar

Quite simply SUBLIME! 4 days growth effortlessly, and smoothly removed with ‘The Rock’/Gillette Bleue Extra combo. The lather was provided by Ariana & Evans 'Portrait in Soho'.... the performance, and scent of which, is truly impeccable... that was just the shave that I needed, after the frustrations of the past week... Colour me happy..


Second use of the Ladas with this and, despite it performing well first-off, today felt a little uncomfortable and rough. I've still managed a decently-close and thorough shave regardless of this pitfall, especially when using the capable APR soap. Finished off with a strong alcohol burn from the splash and I'm feeling close, marginally uncomfortable but with no obvious irritation. I'll be trying my go-to blade, the Nacet, with the next few shaves before passing this lovely little razor on.
