Today, for a change, I chose a lavender soap, a soap that is not widely used, which did not knew before a friend offered it to me, as it gave him skin irritation.
I feel sorry for him, of course, but I can't feel sorry for myself!

The soap has a very good scent reminiscent of the classic version of MdC and LPL but more sophisticate, I'd say and it has excellent performance: shame about the bowl

size too small for loading easily.
But it's enough using small or compact knots ...
The Pal, which I wanted to give up, is proving to be an exceptional razor.

A tattersall shirt, wool tie and moleskin pants, I think, are a suitable outfit for a countryside FBR (Forced Buen Retiro).

The first day of lockdown is terrible: there is a blinding sun!

Am afraid this was a bit of a poor Shave, despite my best efforts the finish was poor and confirmed to me that the NOS blade was not up to scratch. A shame as I have a few of them, will try another out in a different Razor to confirm my suspicions.

The Personna BBS-0 head worked better on the LASSC handle, although it still was nowhere near as efficient or as smooth on my skin as the BBS-0. I don't know either of their development histories, but I doubt that the Personna was an inspiration for the LASSC razor. I think it is more likely a case of similar co-evolution. I am glad that I got to try the Personna and am grateful to my fellow shaver for the loan.
