A lovely shave today. At one time I just could not get a result with this razor and very nearly sold it........that would have been a big step me me as I never sell anything.
After languishing in the back of a drawer for a couple of years I decided to have another go and have never looked back!
3 passes for a perfect result
'Wish you were here' is the chosen theme for this morning's frolics by the sink.
And you are wishing not
Wishing on a star - Tatara Nodachi
Wishing well - Gillette Nacet
Wishing for better - Yaqi Dandelion
Your wish is my command - Signature Soaps Valentia
Best wishes to all - Botanics moisturiser
'I wish, I wish, I wish this man would just go away'
A super start to the day with the Tatara leading the way. And no Polsilver!? To be honest I am trialing a few other blades in anticipation of the dreaded day when the Lodz are confined to history. To this extent the Nacet ticks all the right boxes and a lovely pairing with the Nodachi.
The Signature and the Yaqi being another.
Frolicking over and on to face the day in a smooth and happy manner.
Have a great day all, and wish you were here.......instead of me.

Today I used the latest version of the Micromatic, often called a Bullet tip to differentiate it from the other models. I rarely use this one, as I find it rather mild, and today it struggles to cope with two days growth.In fact I will probably withdraw this one from my usual Shave rotations joining the
ER Heavy Flat Top lookalike, which also despite its looks does not deliver for me.

First Shave back home & man it feels fine
It’s My Birthday week this week.
Not today but Saturday i think
( it’s an age thing ) lol
So iv decided to shave everyday with a Homage to Old Spice with my Birthday being Old Spice itself.
Back to today
A wonderful 3 pass shave,
At first i was going to do a 2 pass shave with me wanting to shave everyday but it’s like a pack of pringles, once i start i just can’t stop so 3 passes it was.
The Razor & Blade were firsts for me and i really enjoyed it.
I Genuinely haven’t heard such feedback on a razor as i did with this, i couldn’t actually believe how loud it was, i’ll assume it’s the design of the razor with sound getting trapped in between
( I Think )
I don’t know why but iv been after this razor for a while but they have been out of stock & again selling fast.
Also i have never used an Artist Club Blade so i can’t really compare,
I went with the Super Pro but any recommendations would be good.
The soap is definitely similar to Old Spice for sure although this one has a touch of menthol, just the right amount that it doesn’t sting your eyes.
Now i can’t wait until tomorrow

Another effortless shave with the Twig. I thought I’d try to start using up old bits and bobs soap wise today so the old Liz Earle was bought out from my cartridge days. It actually was delightful, the sage, eucalyptus And whatever shave grass combined to make a lovely refreshing lather, in a similar vein to Proraso green but not. It also gave a great post shave feel. Most of her stuff is designed for sensitive skin, (my wife won’t use anything else!) and it certainly felt good to use properly lathered which I never used to do. I won’t be buying more but it won’t be a bind to use up!
Last day for the Twig, two days only as it’s a half DE and I figure it’s already past it’s best doing all the work on its own.
