First HD (bought from forum member) shave ever today (unbelievable! I obstinately began on a Progress), and I have yet to get the hang of it. Firstly, the water was definitely too cold (couldn't be bothered with the kettle this morning – why?). Secondly, maybe the IP is not the blade for this razor, or I hit on a dud. It didn't seem as sharp as usual. Still, the result is OK, better than it felt whilst shaving.

I like the Silver Blue a lot. It's smoother than its Czech bretheren and is reasonably sharp. This is the 5th and last shave with this particular blade, 4 left in the pack and I may be ordering more. Will the AD's never end?!!!!!

Third attempt with HD, the first using a Derby, which I had pretty much written off after testing it in my Progress. Bearing that in mind, the result was surprisingly good, though I still don't really feel comfortable with the HD, especially negotiating the troublespots on my neck (a dab of ointment added there). – Still, an improvement on the first two HD shaves, which I suspect is due not so much to the blade as to the fact that I used water from the kettle (unlike 1st try) and got enough of it into the lather (unlike 2nd try). Somehow, I'm having technique issues which I thought I'd resolved.

Today was a 3-pass (1 WTG and 2 ATG) shave. First time using this cream. I have used the soap several times and love it. The cream does not smell all that great but the shave is fantastic.
Very close and comfortable shave. The Italian Floid is just a great aftershave and I couldn't imagine it not in my rotation.

I will be selling/trading a bunch of my items over the next few weeks. I have just too much and I hate not using it. I have about 12 soaps/creams that I must have and the others, while wonderful items
just don't find much use.

Have a great day.

Result: 4.5/5.0 Yes, you see right. Two razors. I used my brand new Merkur HD Slant Bar w/Feather for my first pass and my brand new Merkur 38C HD Long Handle w/Feather for the rest of the passes. I couldn't wait to try both. :biggrin: Near BBS and I didn't slice or nick myself. The slant deserves respect though. It gets close. I tried the Saint Charles Shave Lime cream that Michael sent me and it worked rather well. The lime is "light fresh" smelling.

Result: 3.2/5.0 Well, this was the first time I really shaved with a str8. I had only scraped my cheek a little with a not so sharp Dovo 4/8 before. Someone felt sorry for me and was very generous and gave me a Shumate Razor Co Shumate's Barber 5/8 Straight Razor w/Black Plastic Scales for my razor pleasure. I thank them very much. I made one stupid mistake with the point under my nose which called for the styptic. My neck on the right got roughed up. I should have stretched the skin more. In all, I called it a success. (No one had to dial 911) I finished the passes with a Merkur Slant w/Feather. Between the str8 and the slant I got a very smooth but roughed up, need to heal, shave. I gave myself a weeper at the bottom of my neck with the slant. I will say though, the slant with a feather is one heck of a smooth cutter and I will be using the str8 more. I need to do some homework. OK, time to put a little more Aloe 99 on.

I bought 4 cans of it at the great Proraso Grage Sale at Target...this is now going to be relegated to wife's leg shaving.... I have a 3 o clock shadow...and after close to 6 months of brush and cream/soap shaving it felt very weird. I have some Palmolive Brushless that I'll use until a brush arrives.

I've had the soap for a while and find it to be stellar. I believe QED's soaps to be the best glycerin soaps on the market.

I'm going to withhold judgment on the Merkur until I've had the opportunity to more properly evaluate it. I will say this, it is one SERIOUS piece of hardware.

My initial impression of the CH1 is - WOW! I plan on using it exclusively for the next week so that I may offer up a validated evaluation.

The shave was relaxing and the Lavender cream from Taylor's is so heavenly that I almost fell asleep in the shower :biggrin:

Andreas custom silvertip badger brush
SCS Sandalwood shaving soap (in "Goodwill" silver-plated soap bowl)
No styptic pencil
Witch-hazel
SCS Sandalwood ASB
SCS Sandalwood EDT

These three SCS products were 3/4 of the recent Sandalwood Special closeout sale (the other 1/4 being a large cake of Sandalwood both soap; although, for the life of me, I cannot fathom the "why" behind this sale.

The Sandalwood shaving soap gives a rich, moisturizing, and lubricating lather;
The Sandalwood ASB soothed my face; and
The Sandalwood EDT left me smelling great!

Anwyay, $22 got me a huge 5oz bottle of EDT, a 3"-diameter cake of shaving soap, and a few ounces of ASB (only a little bit does the trick). This is a great deal, and if you've got $22 to spare, get online and order one for yourself (and give the bath soap to your wife or S/O).

Today marks the debut of the English Gillette I received from Mike on Thursday (how could I wait this long, I hear you wonder). The challenge with so light a razor, it soon became apparent, is to strike the right balance between downward pressure and onward pull, since the razor won't do it for you (and I made sure I chose a forgiving blade). The result was pretty impressive, certainly for a first shave with a new razor: No bloodshed, minimal soreness, and a pretty consistent BBS. I'm looking forward to using this razor in the future: it's a pleasure to look at and to use.

What a horrible shaving day. The TI was horriby dull, I have no clue why, passed all the usual tests HHT and thumbnail... By the time I switched to the Dovo it was too late for my face. The alum burned like a lit road flare and the skin bracer nearly sent me to the floor. I picked up my girlfriend and in the car she asked "What's the horrible smell, you smell like an old man" Evidently not a Skin Bracer fan. So upon returning to my place I scrubbed it off and applied some newly purcahsed Proraso PRE/Post. Oy, what a day.
