There is a little more blade feel today, with the Proline in the V2 than yesterday when it was in the V1. I think that extra degree of blade feel enabled me to attain a closer all round finish than yesterday. I find that I am getting smoother more forgiving shaves in The Wabbits, with these AC blades than with The Schick [Chick ] & Personna injector blades.

A change to the planned shave this morning.
I received a "Shave ready" Razor from BillyJi1 from the bay yesterday and thought i would give it a whirl this morning.
@BrianH 's Sig. Soap Eboracum and the little Yaqi worked fantastically well to provide a lovely covering from a face lather, loads left in the brush after 3 passes.
I completed 2 full passes WTG practicing with both hands using the Str8, the 1st pass cleared quite a bit - so that's what shave ready feels like - the razor was singing but so smooth, i did struggle going over and under my chin and also the chin cleft.
The second pass pretty much cleaned up. No Nicks cuts or burn. Spot on.
A check after the rinse off and i completed an ATG pass with the Rocnel mainly to finish my chin and devils whirlpools on the neck below my ears.
A lovely post shave routine and i am refreshed and ready for the day ahead.
razor cleaned, dried and stropped ready for its next run out.
I may do this for the next couple of weeks to get my eye back in with theses wonderful shaving razors.
Doing a fruit salad Breakfast for Mrs TC to start her day.
Stay Safe and enjoy your day all.
