Happy and peaceful New Year to all the members of this great community, from which I learnt how to choose and master sharp objects around my face 🥸

PS: Still wondering what kind of sorcery makes this Timeless work so smootlhy and efficiently at the same time. Totally intrigued!

Many, many years ago, a Gillette Slim and GEM Ornate started my collection. And so, it's only fair that I start this new year with the two that started my hobby. Thank you all for your contribution to the hobby and to all, a Happy New Year.

Schick Proline ( 3 )
Tabac A/S lotion

The Enoch has now firmly established itself as a Razor which I can depend on to deliver a good Shave.In fact if all Shaves in 2021 are as good as this one I will be a happy bunny, and the Tabac was a good choice.

Prep: Valobra Glycerlanolina soap, Myrsol Emulsion
Brush: Savile Row 3824 Silvertip Badger
Soap: Stirling Glacial Lemon Chill
Razor: Merkur Mergress (5; 2.5)
Blade: Vintage NOS Gillette Spoiler (4)
Post: Thayers Cucumber Witch Hazel; Myrsol Plastic Shave
Scent: Amouage Epic Man EdP

A week of scorching weather here in Perth; time for a nice cooling menthol shave, and what better than Stirling Lemon Chill Glacial.
The ring of death is growing in the tin, but still plenty enough for another few shaves. The ever reliable Savile Row brush quickly whipped up a bowl full of lather, and I began to attack an 8 day beard. I've been pushing a few deadlines of late, and hence shaving has been on the backburner. I dialed the Mergress up to '5'; the highest setting I have used to date, and away I went with the WTG pass. The vintage Spoiler blade effortlessly scythed down my beard; the only difference was having to pause maybe twice as often to rinse clean the razor head. Without doubt there was more blade feel on the '5' setting, but I never had the sense that it would "bite". I dialed it back down to my normal '2.5' for the XTG and ATG passes. Cold water rinse, followed by witch hazel and Myrsol Plastic Shave, and I was feeling really refreshed. Plastic Shave has a unique post-shave feel, due to the lactic acid content. Fantastic Stuff.

And speaking of fantastic stuff, the shave was crowned with a general dousing of Amouage Epic Man EdP. Epic indeed!
