A new shave set up to start the weekend.

This week will be a vintage Gillette DE razor week ,and Carrying on with another week using the indian gillette 7'oclock sp blade after the excellent shaves i had from them last week.

Starting off with 1940's vintage flat bottom tech...what i love about the gillette tech design is they are such mild smooth efficient shavers especially the earlier models, it would be hard for me to choose a favourite because each one that i own is a joy to shave with...However, i find the 40's & 50's models are slightly more assertive with the right blade choice.

A comfortably 3 pass + pick ups silky smooth shave with no errors to report.

Finishing to the shave off with a generous dollop of The Real Shaving Co. ~ Post Shave Soothing Balm.

My face is feeling super smooth and smelling divine.😉

Stay safe, and enjoy the start of the weekend ladies & gentlemen.😎
