Greetings,


Face & head Shave.


A new shave set up to start the weekend.

This week will be a chinese clone razor week...Starting with the Jagen David B30 a chinese super-speed clone which has a good weight & balance to it, the moving parts are all in smooth working order with no uneven blade alignment or aggression gap difference or any safety issues that will cause injury to myself when shaving.

The silver star super stainless is my favourite blade to come out of the lord camp, a very sharp efficient but smooth blade that matched up with the non-aggressive JD B30 wonderfully.

A enjoyable 3 pass +pick ups near BBS face & head shave with no errors to report.

Finishing to the shave off with a generous dollop of L'OREAL ~ barber club reinforcing ASB.

My face & precious swede are feeling super smooth and smelling divine.;)

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

PreShave: Warm to hot water, most from the boiled kettle some from the tap
Cream: GFT Eucris
Brush: Kent BK8
Bowl: My recycled T&H cream bowl
Razor: Merkur Futur
Blade Feather (1)
Post Shave: Alum

Fragrance: Eucris

On the assumption that it’s not the blade alone, but a blade+razor combo I tried the Futur with a Feather, with the Futur set at 3,3 and 2. I had not liked Feathers with my other razors, but this combo was excellent. In fact, a super-smooth BBS shave. One for the memories!

Have a good weekend and stay safe, folks.

Given Bruce's comments I might be tempted to try a feather blade for the first time :unsure:? I have some in my den. Once I found Nacet's I stopped experimenting with blades as they work with all my razors.

Today's shave:



- Phoenix & Beau Albion
- NassrasurClub "Trillian" 2-Band
- Edwin Jagger 3ONE6 with Feather blade
- Sôi energy aftershave

:)

The brush is made by Oumo and produced/branded for a German shaving shop. It's a SHD Handmaster finest knot, set in the most comfortable handle they have. Nice softness/firmness ratio, feels smaller than its 26mm though.
