The last shave with the B2 for now – in my experience an Injector blade is “only” good for two weeks before it starts bring less smooth.

Expect a review of sorts next week, when I have had time to write it.

The local Body Shop had a sale, so I picked up a tub of their shaving cream. It was what I used after realising that canned goo sucked, but before I got into traditional safety razors. Not a horrible performer, even when compared to high quality shaving soaps.

And the B2 is still a joy 🙂

Another lovely little shave with the Holy Grail razor. Once I figured out the angle and balance, the B2 has been nothing but a joy to use.

Still enjoying the Schick Magazine Repeating Razor. Getting more comfortable with the heavy handle, a remarkable lack of nicks and shave bumps for a razor that has a reputation of being a tad aggressive. It is – as with most razors – all in the angle.

My very first shave with a Schick Repeater. While the age of the razor isn’t a novelty to me – I got several older razors in my rotation – this one was still very special. Almost emotional, since I have been wanting a Schick Repeater for years now. As for the shave itself… not bad for the first time with a new-to-me razor. Expect a full review/report when I’ve used up the blade.

A fine Friday shave after an hour and a half of pushing a snow blower around in the dark night…
