    Today's shave:


    Ah! Today I've done Fougére Gothique,
    Employed my Vie-Long silvertip,

    And Edwin Jagger Double Edge.
    Had no fierce pains, thanks to red Tüff.

    Now here I am, a fool for sure!
    Much smoother than I was before.


    But I must say I wasn't entirely happy with the soap, more specifically with the technical aspect of lathering it. It's my first Reserve-base soap in a full tub rather than a sample size, and it's very soft. So much so that only two swirls in, the brush already started pushing lumps of soap around. Other soft soaps I know (L&L, Black Ship Grooming) are much easier to handle. Is this normal? Do I have to use this like a proper cream, or should I leave it open to dry out for a few days?

    Though I use a Shim in some older Razors, I thought the modern Gem blade was designed to fit The MM Range of Razors so a shim would not be needed. Have you tried it without a Shim, if so how did you feel the Shave was in comparison to one using a shim.
    I used an OCMM today, found it hard work around the chin compared with a 1924/Streamline.:)

    Preshave: Hot water rinse + bloom water
    Razor: Gillette Rocket HD (1953/54)
    Blade: Perma-sharp (1)
    Brush: New Forest Badger
    Shave Soap: Wickham 1912 LE Bleu
    Aftershave Balm: Body Shop Maca Root balancing face protector
    Aftershave: M&S Harvard

    The Perma-sharp is normally a very effective blade for me, which doesn't seem to get the recognition it deserves, but today's performance fell somewhat short. Four passes and much more touch-up work than usual still leaves me near BBS with a smile the rain can't wash off.

    Have a good weekend.
