A new eclectic shave set up to start the weekend... which i' will be using my Parker 55SL again, along with the Lanolin Wool Fat Shaving Soap for the full week.

Over the past month i have been using Indian/chinese DE blades that i've infrequently used in the past, all have performed had good error-free DFS /near BBS shaves from my slant razors The next month or more i will continue using other blades i've infrequently used or haven't tried yet.

Starting with the first of three Dorco blades. The Dorco prime platinum i have used a few times and found them to be smooth forgiving non-aggressive, yet efficient enough and paired together excellently with my other parker razors.

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

Finishing to the shave off with a generous dollop of Groomed ~ ASB.

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

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

Hola - Alexander the mouse here - my friends call me Sandy - so - the big bipedal person crashed and burned several hours ago - a result of a long night of drinking Kraken spiced rum and listening to live Jerry Lee Lewis at deafening volume - unhelpful - we - the mice - have very sensitive hearing. I don't think he is going to get it together to shave today - that's probably okay - still looks clean from yesterday. We - mouse power - big shout out to Dave and Gerald - did you a picture - we know the unlock code for his phone - we are away to watch the 'Danish Blues Brothers,' - he'll never know. I.

Continuing with The Enoch/Kai blade Trial. Used a new to me Soap and After Shave, apparently loaded with essential oils. Loaded very easily and smelt pleasant, the lather very creamy and effective at helping the Shave along.A good close Shave attained with the skin feeling soft and moisturised. The After Shave did not sting on application and left the skin feeling good, the after scent is extremely pleasant to inhale, and so far seems more long lasting than some.
