I enjoyed my inaugural SE shave tonight by taking my Micromatic Open Comb for a spin!
The best way I can describe the feeling of the MMOC is that there was a great deal of "blade feel" throughout the shave. I'm eager to learn if this is specific to the MMOC or a trait of SE razors in general, and I plan on trying out my new Clog Pruf tomorrow to find out.
Pictured below is my Berkeley brush after a 3rd pass face lather with one of bkfist's test soaps.
Thayer's Superhazel and AV Ice Sport rounded out a nice DFS for my first foray into all that is SE.
Thanks for the generous PIF/Contest. I've already learned so much from this sub-forum in 24 hours, it really seems to be off to a great start!
