I do still have it but it's been a long time since I last used it. I've got the Core so it's the cheapskate version anyway.
Think I've heard it said before that the core does sound a little chattery compared to the genesis never had the core I did look at the new white hybrid and kinda wished I'd of gone with that now with the Genesis being so chattery anyway could have saved some money on my chattery shaver lol

Wash with French Pink Clay & Charcoal soap
Lather up with Wickham's 1912 Parma Violet & hjm Professional (Boar) 25mm
Shave with RazoRock German Slant & Gillette London Bridge Super Stainless (3)
Hot rinse, cold rinse & Puig Quorum Aftershave​

What a great shave! Third run with the London Bridge and it seemed to really like the slant. Maybe it's at its smoothest, maybe it was the razor. Single pass joy!

This arrangement was brought to you by feline pogotonomy paraphernalia stylist Elias Quisiva ...

Vintage Month

Brush - Omega 11819
Soap - Pre de Provence
Razor - Fat Handle Tech
Blade - Astra SP
Post - Intesa Glacial Lotion

When I first started shaving I'd generally go for 3 passes and clean up, which I kept up for a few years. In the last year or so I dropped a pass, but still for daily shaves my face wouldn't often wouldn't feel great.
After reading Paul @pjgh's one pass shaves I decided to give it a go myself today. My razor of choice is a mild one, and the blade isn't the sharpest one out there as well but it was smooth and efficient enough for today's one pass shave, of course my face wasn't as smooth as it would be after a 3.5 pass shave but my face is fairly comfortable, and predictably the shave took a lot less time to complete.

My "trick" is to use the Gillette slide, a diagonal stroke whereby the razor is straight but I draw it down diagonally rather than putting the razor itself on the slant. I'm just interesting in a good shave that leaves me presentable. I would have to do extra passes to get that baby smooth feeling, but it's not actually a feeling that I like.
 
Good evening all

Brush- Truefit & Hill Best Badger
Soap- TOBS Rose Cream
Razor- Rockwell 6S R2
Blade- GSB #4
Post- Barts Bergamot and Vanilla
Splash- D&G

Just a very quick one pass this evening, I thought the blade was on its final shave last night and this evenings shave confirmed it.
The Rose cream from TOBS is a beaut although I don't have any Rose scented post shave products so made do with Barts balm and a D&G splash that is probably 20 years old.
Not bad for an only pass but the R2 plate is a very mild shave.
