I have a Fatip Grande, and a New tub of Triumph and Disaster old fashioned shave cream.

Don't go ATG on neck, and use a shallow blade angle.
what is this about?
looks like a pressure issue :)
As if some guy would break in and steal your crusty razors !
Box looks great, well done.

Nice collection so far!
Hows ya shaves going?
