The humble Palmolive Classic shave stick is a great performing soap which will always be a firm favourite within my shaving den.​
I should hope so too with your username.

A nice comfortable two and a half pass shave. I'm trying to use this GFT cream up as I want to repurpose the bowl for another soap. Plus I'm not a fan of the scent. It just doesn't seem to want to go down.

That's precisely right!..My username is a hybrid of my surname & fondness of the humble palmolive classic shave stick.

Razor - Gillette New OC
Blade - Gillette Wilkinson Sword India (3)
Soap - Arko Puck
Brush - Yaqi Plissoft 24mm
Post - Witch Hazel/Alum
Splash - Barbon

Not a great shave today, picked up a ingrown on the first pass on my neck and applied a bit too much pressure under my lip on the 2nd to pick up a cut. I didn't get the best lather with Arko as well. It's a soap I have quite erratic lathers with, I think as the puck is actually very hard it's probably down to underloading, but I still continue to make the very mistake!
I think I should have paired a sharper blade with the New, but it really is a smooth razor head.
First time using the Barbon Splash, nice mild scent and feels good on the skin.

This Hefty Occams is an effort in some ways to mirror design features of a Cobra Razor. However, it is adjustable if one fits plates of varying aggression, it comes fitted with a No2 plate as Standard but I got mine with a No3 plate.
So far I get good Shaves with it, much better than I did with a King Cobra. However there is a bit of harshness to the Shave, so I have just fitted a No2 plate borrowed from my Orens and see how that goes with initially the Proguard or Kai CTM pink. Quite impressed with the interchangeability of the Plates.
