Another eclectic shave set up to start the weekend...I had all intentions to give the Tiger Platinum blades another run out but changed my mind at the last minute, and used The Treet Dura Sharp Teflon coated blade instead, purely because it's another blade i've only used a few times and i can't remember the last time that i added them to my blade rotation.

Paired together with my Parker 24C was a very impressive smooth efficient duo, which I'll be using again in my future shave set ups.

A pleasurable 3 pass + pick ups BBS shave with no errors to report.

Finishing to the shave off with a generous dollop of L'0REAL ~ Barber Club Reinforcing ASB.

My face is feeling super smooth and smelling divine.;)

Stay safe, and enjoy the start of the weekend ladies & gentlemen.:cool:

This is an aggressive head I'm just getting used to - I would only use on days I'm not planning to go out in public! I would probably only use platinum coated blades with it. WTG only with this one - my skin is too sensitive to go ATG. Tiny cut under the nose through carelessness otherwise very close shave with no blood.
