    Preshave: Hot water rinse + bloom water
    Razor: PAL Injecto-Matic
    Blade: Chick (23)
    Brush: Omega 10018 Boar
    Shaving Soap: MWF
    Aftershave Balm: Rock Face Shave Butter
    Aftershave: Brut Original

    I thought I may have detected a hint of blade tug this morning but the combo went on to deliver a near BBS and survive another day. I finished with Brut Orignal AS and topped up with a dash of Brut Body Splash, for old times' sake.

    Have a good weekend.

    Regards,
    Chris

    The glacial range David is heavily mentholated. MITA and executive man (Green Irish Tweed replica) are my favourite scents. A soap that punches well above its price point. Cushion isn't overly impressive but slickness is excellent.

    Out with a bang. My last shave with this razor before it goes to it's next victim, and what a cracker! Once the angle is dialled in, a super shave is guaranteed!

    A quick comment on the soap, again rather poor. Enough slip for the shave, but no residual slickness. Nice post shave feel, soft with no greasiness. Zero scent.

    An early morning shave today as it was the local agricultural show.
    Two passes and just a little touch up gave a lovely shave and to top it off...I had a couple of seconds in the horticultural section!

    Proraso Red Cream
    CJB Kamisori
    Feather Pro
    Proraso Red Splash

    First go with the borrowed CJB. Seems to fit me much better than folding straights or feather ones. A bit irritated but pretty smooth after 3 passes.
