Thanks as always, Tony. I had an interesting review this week of Leodis by YouTuber @IAMCDB who liked the fragrance but went on and on about dents in the tin that supposedly happened in transit (not shipped by me but was sent out to him in perfect condition). It clearly doesn’t occur to him that he could use a Pater Peperium relish pot to nicely present soap in a SOTD. Regards Brian15/09/21

The shave started with a great lather today with the JR synth and @BrianH Signature soap Leodis - to me a very nice scented soap.
I gave the 1949 blade 50 pre shave laps and away i went, the WTG pass was OK and the blade was cutting, no real drama, i went for the XTG pass and as i got to the more stubborn stubble around the chin area the blade just did not want to play. I popped into the den mid-shave and found a spare 1952 blade, popped it in the handle and it was much better. I then completed an ATG pass with a bit buffing - yes the '52 is much better.
I have been left with a DFS finish, although, i must say when using the Rolls, for me, its all about the experience rather than the finish.
I was expecting a bit of "Whoo Hoo " from the splash, however, it was not too bad at all.
Stay safe and enjoy your day All
