Greetings,

Early morning shave,

Last outing of the Gillette Winner stainless, throughout the week the blade has performed wonderfully with causing no irritation or dulling problems...All in all, though i like the Gillette Winner Stainless & Platinum as both blades have gave me good satisfactory shaving results are suited to my mature skin type, and have paired together wonderfully with the various DE razors that i have used.

Another enjoyable 3 pass + pick ups close comfortable shave with no errors to report...

Finishing to the shave off with a generous splash of Blue Stratos ASL.

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

Keep safe, and enjoy your day ladies & gentlemen.:cool:

Prep: Shower, Palmolive Olive Oil Soap
Pre: Proraso Green
Soap: Executive Shaving Bay Rum
Brush: Yaqi 24mm Sagrada Familia Tuxedo
Razor: Parker 22R Interceptor
Blade: Kai Stainless (2)
Post: Alum, Benjamins Bay Rum

As anticipated, the Kai came into its own today. A curated software setup, known to give good backup, coupled with the Kai's reputation for sharpening up on day 2 left a DFS and no irritation. The blade still feels more agricultural than a GSB or a Voskhod (and certainly more so than the Polisilver, but there's no denying the result!

Cold water wash followed by Raw Supremo Supreme Smoother

In a rush this morning so broke out the replacement DE. First run with the PAA Astra Planeta, have to say I really liked it, took a little bit of working but got it how I like it in the end (I was having a moment and overloaded with water).

Smooth, refreshed and almost willing to go to work!

Have a good one all

Cheers

SOTD 8th April

Brush - Yaqi Butterscotch 22mm Cashmere
Soap - TDS Sandalwood
Razor - Ever Ready 1912
Blade - Gem SSC #10
Post - Boots Freshwood ASL

One of those shaves where you think "Can it get better?" 2½ passes - Bloody brilliant!
The TDS soap impressed - subtle scent with performance very akin to Wickhams IMO. Very, very slick lather that are the razor difficult to hold at times.
Razor/Blade combo work perfectly, I love this little razor - as smooth and close as my Rockwell 6c.
Very nicely finished off the the Boots ASL.
Stay safe people and enjoy those shaves

In between rotations so decided for a change to use this relatively new to me Kai blade. Though very little blade feel, it was obvious after a couple of strokes that the combo was very effective. The Shave was smooth and trouble free , and the finish extremely good. Must now try this blade in a few more Razors.
