That is, indeed, a beautiful razor!!
Late Thursday afternoon

OSP Fougére
RazoRock BC Silvertip 24mm synth
Face lather
Gillette Aristocrat 1948 (USA)
Gillette Nacet #3
Thayer’s Rose Petal and Aloe Vera
Pitralon Classic after shave

Not a massive amount of bristles to dispense with today, after last night’s Feathering. However, what was there got dealt with extremely well by the Aristocrat and Nacet combo. I do notice that (for me, anyway) the Nacets take a couple of shaves to attain smoothness; after that though, they do the biz.

The Aristocrat is a tremendous razor; each time I use it I hardly get any blade feel, riding the cap. The results are incredibly smooth though. 3 passes; no buffing. Excellent.

Thur 11th July

RazoRock Syn 24mm
P & B Pall Mall
Schick Type F
Schick- Chick ( 3 )
Floid Vigoroso A/S lotion

A Shave with another early Schick, which is very good to hold and use.Though quite mild I can always get a good close Shave with the Type F,not as close as a B1 but still very good.

Is the Pall Mall scent any good?

Sotd - Thursday the 11th of July -

Razor - Rockwell - 4 plate - on Executive Shaving SS handle
blade - Wizamet Polsilver (6)
brush - Yaqi - Moka two-band badger
soap - Williams - Ice Fresh Menthol
post - witch hazel
a/s - Williams - Aqua Velva
balm - Proraso - Green pre/post
scent - Dior - Oud Isfahan edp.

Result - Fantastic.

Head - double '0' clippers - and face shave - the perfect antidote to a humid day in Glasgow. Not much to say really - I'm refreshed - smell nice - even if I do say so myself - my skin feels great - and I'm smother than a greased cross-Channel swimming otter - wearing experimental graphene coated Speedos. Job done - enjoy your shaves as much - one and all - cheers - I.
