    Voskhod/RPL comparison: I am 2 shaves in with both blades. I have been alternating Voskhod for one shave, RPL for the next shave. The first shaves with each were following 48 hours of growth, the second shave with each after 36 hours of growth. I used the same setup for each. Honestly, I am...

    Feather Round 2: Over the past week I’ve done 5 shaves with the same Feather blade. All shaves were superb. I even shaved while traveling to see my parents for the weekend in less-than-ideal shaving conditions and never felt like the shave quality was compromised. Sharp, smooth, durable. This...

    Gillette Nacet round 2: For the third and fourth shaves of round 2 with the Nacet I used R2 plate for all 3 passes. Really good results, still feels smooth and sharp. No irritation. I still don’t feel like I need to get a bulk pack of them since I have bulk packs of a few other brands at the...

    Gillette Platinum Round 2 closing comments/Gillette Nacet Round 2 Shaves 1 & 2: Sorry I haven't been as regular as I used to me. Life happens. Work has been extremely busy this month and I have a lot going on. The 4th and final shave with the Gillette Platinum did not disappoint. After 8...

    Gillette Platinum Round 2, Shave #3: No picture again. A&E Choco Cubano for the soap. R3 plate once again. I feel like I can tell the blade is wearing slightly bear the end of the 3rd shave so it seems 4 shaves seems to be the limit for this blade for me but that’s no big deal really. We will...

    Gillette Platinum Round 2, Shave #2: No picture today. I used the Stirling pre-shave soap rather than the Proraso preshave. I used Stirling Dubshire soap and aftershave samples. I face lathered again as well. Rockwell 6S R3 plate for 2 passes and R2 plate for the third and cleanup passes. Good...

    Well I haven't logged the last few shaves. Honestly, they've been pretty boring. Nothing new to reports. Experiemented with a few products. Same great Polsilver shaves. Now I'm back to my Round 2 of the second cut. Gillette Platinum Round 2, Shave #1: I have already purchased a 100 pack of the...

    Gillette Wilkinson Sword (China) Shave #4: Similar experience as the previous shaves although this was definitely the last shave for this blade. Still decent results but a bit more irritation today, especially on my neck. I think I will take a week break and go to the trusty Polsilver...

    Gillette Wilkinson Sword (China) Shave #3: This shave went quite well. Standard R4 plate for 2 passes followed by the R2 plate. The shave was quite good and relatively comfortable. Excellent end results with no irritation. On a soap note, I gave the Stirling Sandpiper another go and I did enjoy...

    Shark Platinum Shave #1: I went into this shave, my final blade to test, with a bit of dread. My expectations were low for the Shark Platinum. I have read that the Shark and Lord bodes are quite similar if not the same blade rebranded. I feel that, while similar, the two blades do fee slightly...

    I actually feel that it provides a little extra slickness. Idk if that's placebo effect or not but I feel like I notice it when I don't use it. I've used it for quite some time and not really sure I know any different at this point. lol

    Gillette Wilkinson Sword (China) Shave #1 & 2: This blade is actually pretty decent. I'd have to look back to see how i liked the Wilkinson Sword but I think I was a bit critical of it. The GWS is quite smooth. I'd say just as smooth as any blade in my top 10. I would rate the sharpness...

    Wizamet Iridium Super Round 2, Shave #4: Another good shave this morning, this time with probably my favorite scented soap and one of my top performers. If I'm feeling up to it tomorrow morning, I'll give the Gillette Wilkinson Sword a try.
