A new shave set up to start the weekend...It's been a while since i last used the KMF shave cream, it created a wonderful lather without drying out in between passes the post shave feeling from this shave cream is superb... The Treet 7 day platinum are another blade that pairs well with the Parker 98r... I forgot how smooth and sharp the treet 7 days blades are...The characteristics of them are very like the Astra SP blade in sharpness, with a slightly sharper edge ,which can be a little rough on the first pass, like a lot of DE blades, but after that they mellow out...As always DE blade opinions are very subjective.

Yet again i had to rub my fingertips with a alum block inbetween each pass to stop the razor handle from slipping while shaving.

A pleasurable 2 pass + pick ups close comfortable shave with no errors to report...Finishing the shave off with a small dollop of L'0REAL Barber Club Reinforcing ASB.

My face is feeling super smooth & smelling divine.;)

Stay safe, and enjoy the start of the weekend ladies & gentlemen.:cool:

Super nice lather from this soap! The scent is intoxicating, the lather is cooling, creamy & slick...awesome!
Trying for the 1st time an on-loan modern Thiers Le Grelot...beautiful looking, nice weight & balance with a smooth and comfortable edge honed on jnats. While the kind & generous owner showed how well the edge cuts through his whiskers (I was impressed)...he's in his older whiskers say nope...:LOL:Managed in 3+1passes for a ccs result only. I have the owner's permission for this razor to go through the pasted balsa progression...yay! Let's see how tomorrow. Matching aftershave was great!

Wonderfully chilled shave this morning, for once had a ton of time. I've heard rave reviews for this barbershop, both on the scent and the kodiak base. So far I'm finding it to be good but there are much better out there, I certainly wouldn't replace it when it's gone whereas there are others in my lineup that I most certainly will.

Either which way a good finish and ready to take my little one to dance class, thankfully they don't try to get me to dance at all. Being a 6' 5" Yorkshireman I can sidestep fairly well on the pitch but I'm not sure I could pull off a pirouette!

How everyone has a grand day!
