I've really enjoyed using the Sabre and have had consistently good shaves with it. I will own one at some point in the future. Time to retire it though as FEather FEbruary is nearly here.

Soap - Hampshire Wool Fat
Brush - YaqI Purple Haze Mew Brown
Razor - YaqI Katana
Blade - 1/2 Gillette Platinum (1)
Post - PuIg Quorum Aftershave

I've only used the Katana a few times, and tonight's shave was my best with it so far* possibly in part thanks to the excellent Hampshire Wool Fat lather.
* User error reared it's head when I attempted an ATG pass on the moustache area - something which is not a problem for me with DE razors. Two small, but persistent weepers which required extra cold rinses and alum to bring under control - and all is well. I'll be a bit more careful in future.
Lesson learned - play with fire and you'll get burnt.
Over all finish is very good, close and irritation free.
Finished with Quorum Aftershave.

First impressions of Laugar, Chris?
Kudos to you and Ravi for this one. The soap performed very well. I ordered two tubs of the unscented. I was struck by the snow white color of the soap. While SG is my gold standard and likely always will be, Laugar is a very welcome addition to the cabinet. Anyone else on the fence should give it a shot.
