Nice nice soap. Pleasant scent, good quality and slick lather from a pleasurable workout with the soft brush.
Sharp, smooth and comfortable shave with razor paired with blade for 3passes. Between bbs to dfs.
Excellent post and aftershave.
Enjoyable shave. Rating 9.5/10

Even though I don't use DE razors much.......I couldn't resist buying this one due to the sales 'blurb'. Angle is everything with this razor due to the tiny blade exposure. In fact the angle of attack is similar to that used by the Focus Dynamic. Miss it....and you will just massage your face with a piece of high tech aluminium.
It's mild in use but delivers a very good end result.
3 passes for a great finish. Now the wait ......to see how long that remains!

This morning the postman delivered a new soap and brush, so I had to try them out. Both of them proved excellent in use the lather was rich and copious, with a distinctly smoky aroma. The brush is quite large, not quite as tall as the Razorock 400 in aluminium, but just as heavy. On my first pass I caught a bump on my chin with the Mühle Rocca, damn, not a common occurrence now. I picked up the Parker Variant for the second pass set to 2 for the damaged chin and 2.5 for everywhere else. A smooth and close shave was the result. It is time to pass on the Mühle Rocca razor and brush, life is too short for bad shaves.
