Groomed ~ ASB.


A new eclectic shave set up to start the weekend... which i' will be using my Parker 55SL again, along with the Lanolin Wool Fat Shaving Soap for the full week.

Over the past month i have been using Indian/chinese DE blades that i've infrequently used in the past, all have performed had good error-free DFS /near BBS shaves from my slant razors The next month or more i will continue using other blades i've infrequently used or haven't tried yet.

Starting with the first of three Dorco blades. The Dorco prime platinum i have used a few times and found them to be smooth forgiving non-aggressive, yet efficient enough and paired together excellently with my other parker razors.

A enjoyable 3 pass +pick ups near BBS shave with no errors to report.

Finishing to the shave off with a generous dollop of Groomed ~ ASB.

My face is feeling super smooth and smelling divine.😉

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