A classy two pass shave this morning. The only problem was that the lather died on the brush during the first pass and I had to reload the soap. The second pass lather was rich and luxuriant as it should be. The problem was caused by a combination of me not loading enough soap and my hard water. Ultimately a close and comfortable shave from the Rex razor.

3 Passes for a DFS+ finish, although not my closest shave this week it was as wonderful as any i have had.
This Little Schick B2 razor is definitely my Razor of the week. I am smitten.
Another great Lather from the Cussons IL, even though i have been advised not to use it by the company.
Last outing for the Tabac Post shave which i have also enjoyed this week.

Bit late for that, however, my date search is confirmed.
I've let them know it works perfectly.
Stay safe and enjoy your day All.

SOTD 3rd July 2020

Razor - Karve SS with D plate
Blade - Souplex
Soap - Fitjar - Fjellheim hard soap
Brush - Simpson T3
Post - Thayers astringent
Frag - Guerlain - Vetiver EdT

I've gone through all the plates I have with this razor A, B, C & D now and can get a perfect shave from all of them, I prefer the "C " plate when using Souplex blades, a very good razor set indeed :)
My first use of the Simpson T3 brush today and although I found it a little springy at first it is proving to be a very good brush, I look forward to using it in my rotation of brushes.
The Fitjar shave soap is wonderful and was thinking today how similar it is to Signature Soaps in many ways which should please @BrianH no end! :) well done Brian!
All in all a very good shave and one that left me with baby smooth skin and zero irritation .

Untill the next time, stay safe and be lucky. :)

Paul.
Thanks, that’s good to hear Paul, better put my prices up then!

I feel incredibly privileged today. I've shaved with a razor that I'm unlikely to ever own in my life thanks to the kindness of an ATG member who has loaned me his Wolfman. The shave was everything I imagined it to be. The razor felt great in the hand and it was both smooth and efficient. I'm looking forward to my next shave with this. Along with the General V2 I have on loan from Chris, I feel indebted to the wet shaving community.
