A new shave set up to start the weekend.The yaqi doc head /schmidt r10 handle is a wonderful frankenrazor, the appearanceof the head makes it looks very aggressive but it's the complete opposite but paired together with the right blade choice it's smoothly efficient.
Second outing of the clubman pinaud soap, which provided a superb lather for the shave in no time,leaving a wonderful post shave feel.
I've decided for the next month or possibly longer,regardless the make of the de blade, i will change it after two shaves purely to thin down the amount of blades i still have in my shaving den... Starting with the T7D platinum a blade i haven't used in ages,which matched up with the frankenrazor superbly, making a wonderful non-aggressive ,yet efficient smooth duo...The characteristics of them are very similar to the Gillette silver Blue & Astra SP, in sharpness, with a slightly sharper edge ,which can be a little rough on the first pass, but after that they mellow out...As always DE blade opinions are very subjective....I like Trig blades, too which i will use in my SOTD's next week. Both the T7D platinum & Trig blades are from the Treet factory manufactured in Pakistan.
My skin type seems to like indian & pakistani made blades, and count myself fortunate that i haven't had any problems with intermittent quality problems with either blades. As always YMMV.
A comfortable 3 pass + pick ups silky smooth shave with no errors to report.
Finishing the shave off with a generous dollop of Creightons ~ Sensitive Post Shave Balm.
My face is feeling super smooth and smelling devine.
Enjoy the start of the weekend, ladies & gentlemen.
