11 days taken down in style!View attachment 76840
This afternoon -
razor - Cobra Classic
blade - Schick Proline P30 (1)
brush - Frank Shaving 22mm two-band
soap - SV Tundra Artica
post - witch hazel
a/s - Santa Maria Fiore
balm - Weleda.
Eleven day growth coming off - I finished my Leaf Twig experiment after eight shaves, rather than the ten I proposed, as I felt I had learned all I was going to about the razor. Bottom line - excellent for me in pretty much every respect and a keeper. Thanks to the generosity of friends on the forum I have a selection of AC standard blades to try and wanted to return to this sort of razor after quite a hiatus - Colonial General and ATT SE to follow. With this much beard to take off - let's start at the top of the food chain with the Cobra. What's the worst that can happen? A razor that enjoys a certain notoriety - which it fully deserves. I bought mine many years ago when they were still in production and I didn't know what I was doing. Cut myself up a treat and it went to the back of the den. Rediscovered about a decade later when I had actually learned how to shave properly and what a razor it is. It does require the best of prep and surrounding cast - no muscle memory here for me - total concentration at all times, but it will reward you with the closest of shaves. I enjoyed that - I hope you enjoy yours - cheers - I.
Thanks @Paul L & @Boycie83
Your Cobra makes me feel afraid Ian, very, very afraid!
