Ah man! I didn't know I was suppose to wait until March. Oh well, used my Gillette New this morning. Love my OC's!!

I'm very much looking forward to this. It wasn't a shave day, today, but I have settled on about 7 different open combs to take out for a spin. Can't wait!

I figure I'll try to go in historical sequence, so today I used my Old Type. I've only had fair shaves with this the couple times I've tried before, but I want to work on my technique for a few days and see if I can get the excellent results I see with some other razors. One thing I do know is that I so far like the longer combs because there's less likelihood of snagging my flesh as I work the angles!
I don't seem to have a New Improved in my arsenal, so during the month I plan to move onto my New (Roth branded long comb), Goodwill and Senator. Should be an interesting month.

I already started. It was a toss up between the razor pictured or the Gem Damaskeene. Bowing to age, the Damaskeen won out. Another DFS, the 4th on this blade.

I used my Gem Micromatic OC. BBS :thumbup1:

Didn't shave yesterday, slept at the GFs and forgot to bring a razor. Today I started the month off right with the #15. Great shave as ever, third shave on the 7 O'Clock black. little scrapey on the ATG pass on the neck, which is also the final pass, so it might be time to switch the blade out. maybe I'll try a spoiler tomorrow.
I've got some other razors coming I feel I should check out which are not OC, and there's the Bull Mastiff, but right now, I'm having a hard time developing much enthusiasm for shaving with anything but the #15.

Bar-handled new, today. Great results. I haven't used it for more than six months. It was wonderful to revisit it. I'll probably spin it again on Friday morning before moving on to something else.

I used my OC Micromatic yesterday without even realizing it was Open Comb March!:001_rolle Think I'll load up the Old Type today and stick with the theme for the entire month. Haven't used the Old Type in a while, and I figure this is as good a reason as any!:thumbup1:
