A very enjoyable 3 pass + cleanup shave for a BBS finish. It was a first outing for the Progress and I found that in combination with the Astra blade to be very smooth and much less aggressive than my Futur, yet giving the same close finish. 6ED19A76-CD84-47A7-8F6A-D8AA1D96E536.jpeg

A very Close & Comfortable shave with the GC-OC, also this Polsilver has smoothed right out.
BBS finish feeling and smelling really good.
I am now wondering if i have been replacing the Polsilver blades before they have had a chance to settle, my beard is Fine to Medium and this may have a bearing on the running in of the blades, i have always had a good finish from them, its just they did not seem smooth.
Enjoy your day All
