Hot water rinse
Brush: Yaqi White Knight 24mm Synthetic
Razor: British Gillette Rocket HD
Blade: Sainsbury's [Dorco] (2)
Soap/Cream: DR Harris Almond
Aftershave Balm: Bulldog Sensitive
Aftershave: M&S Woodspice

The combo behaved impeccably on its second outing, ably assisted by the DR Harris soap, and delivered a very competent, blood free BBS, 9/10.

Have a good, safe day.

Purely out of interest of course, how much is that handle to buy if it’s possible on its own?
More than any rational person would spend on a handle alone, and probably at least double what the Hawk head costs. I bought it used and was very undecided at first. Fact is, it provides excellent ergonomics and control over the shave and works with more or less any razor head I screw it onto.

Razor: ATT R2
Blade: Gillette Nacet (2)
Brush: PAA Peregrino
Soap: RazoRock The Dead Sea


I wasn't expecting to enjoy the R2 as much as I did. It's an ATT - I shouldn't have doubted it.

I love the smell of The Dead Sea but I felt some irritation by the second pass and a bit of frag burn from splash. I've never had this before from this range. Gutted.
