    Pre: Warm water face wash
    Brush: Omega 20102 Boar
    Soap: P&B Spitfire
    Razor: Leresche 34
    Blade: Treet Black Beauty
    Post: Warm then cold water rinse, Floid Black

    After using the hefty Cobra for the last few days, the aluminium Leresche felt like a toy in my hand.
    It doesn't shave like a toy that's for sure, smoothly efficient, resulting in a great Saturday morning shave.
    Have a great weekend everyone.

    Preshave: Hot water rinse + bloom water
    Razor: Fatip Grande
    Blade: Nacet (2)
    Brush: New Forest 2223
    Shave Soap: Tabac
    Aftershave Balm: Rock Face Shave Butter
    Aftershave: Old Spice Original

    A disappointing shave today. I loaded the brush for barely a few seconds in order not to waste so much lather (I know!) and it never fully recovered from there, even after loading more soap. The blade noticeably dragged - I'm convinced I felt it let go during the shave - but I stuck with it to the bitter end and struggled to a begrudging DFS.

    Tomorrow's another day, another blade. Have a good weekend.

    Maidstone kent
    Sat 7th Oct.
    Omega 10005 boar
    Vitos Super Red croap
    Alu. General/ Windrose Handle
    Feather Pro [ 2 ]
    Alum Rub/Rinse off
    Myrsol Antesol A/S Lotion

    Followed yesterdays Shave with the Alu Hawk by using the Alu. General. I have dispensed wth the stock handle on both Razors , and find that a heavier S/S Handle combines well with the head to provide a combo that works well for me.

    Today like yesterday the blade was on a 2nd outing , so could make make a comparison between the Hawk/General. Both were smooth and comfortable during the Shave, with both producing a good close all round finish. There was no significant difference in the quality of finished Shave, though I felt the General was easier when working ATG especially around the Neck.
