Hot water rinse
Brush: Plisson Pure Badger (vintage)
Razor: Gillette Slim [H3} (7)
Blade: Astra SP (2)
Soap/Cream: Floris No89
Aftershave Balm: Harvard Vetiver
Aftershave: Old Spice Original

All the elements combined to deliver a superb BBS++, 10/10, with no irritation and a couple of weepers on the upper lip which soon dried without intervention. Old Spice AS seemed an appropriate way to round off.

Happy Friday.

Hi. For me they are both medium aggressive and around equally efficient at giving me a close, clean shave with the vintage blades that I use. Everyone's experience is different, but on my face the BBS-1 feels noticeably smoother. I can't say that it is any more comfortable or feels like it requires less caution and attention, but it just glides better across the skin.
Thanks, mate. I have the WR2 .95 SB myself and love it, so I was just curious about your thoughts. Great razors.

Another very nice 2 pass shave, the blade is still going strong as its only had 20 passes. It will go into the next razor.
No issues with the graze today, although i did get a bit, short lived indication from the splash.
Stay safe and enjoy your day all.

A nice comfortable Shave today. Though it was not as close on the face as the 1924 yesterday, the overall quality of finish was better as today the neck area was nicely shaven.
