    What razor/blade did you use today

    Fatip Retro (2nd time using it, a bit of a pain to get aligned)/ Persona Red (1) Great shave though, even with the alignment issues.

    Tabactober 2020

    Same here, I'm doing both for the whole month. I was going to do an FF at the same time, but thought that was pushing it too far. :)

    OCtober 2020

    I'm in, RR .68 Jaws and a wonky Fatip Retro that I have to tweak to get aligned, and doing Tabactober as well, so I guess it'll actually be TabaOCtober for me. :D. No, I'm not going to make it an FF. That way lies madness.

    Cella 1kg soap block

    Just used Cella in the tub for the first time yesterday, and I have to say that it's one of 4 soaps that I'd rebuy when it runs out.

    What razor/blade did you use today

    RR 37/ Gillette 7 O'Clock Super Stainless (4). First go with this razor. Great shave, going to have to put all my blades through it to see which works best.

    Blooming Razorock Soaps

    I bloom the WTP hard soaps, I don't bloom any of the others. So far, of the croap type soaps from RR, the one that I found works the best is their Blue Fougere. I get a great lather out of that one. The other ones that I have have been more hit or miss. Gold, for instance, I haven't been...

    Which blade did you toss today? After how many uses?

    Gillette Nacet, lost track, less than 6. I have to stop that. :)

    List your top products

    Absolute favorites of each categorize that I use? Well, let's see. Razor: Hmm, that's a toss up. Out of the ones I use on a regular basis, it's either the GC .84, or the Rockwell 6C at plate 4 or 5 depending on the blade. Honorable mention goes to the Merkur Progress. Blade: Right now it...

    Post your first shaving kit when starting out on B&B

    I started with a Merkur 23C, a bowl of Derby shave soap, a Wilkinson Sword brush bought locally, and 100 Astra SP/ 100 Derby Premium Blades. Still use all of it some times, except the Derby soap, it's long gone, first soap I 3017'ed.

    What razor/blade did you use today

    GC Jaws / Dorco Prime (1) on 4 days of growth. Excellent combo for me.

    Rockwell 6S Review: day-by-day, plate-by-plate

    I switch up all 3 plates on occasion my self, depending on the blade I'm using. Nacets get 3, 4, or 5. Things like a Dorco Prime or a 7 O'Clock Green SS, I'll use up to plate 6.

    Rockwell 6S Review: day-by-day, plate-by-plate

    I have the GC.84P as well, and I switch back and forth between that, my 6C on plate 5, and my Progress the most out of my collection. The 6C would be replaced with a 6S if it rots.

    What is your worst blade?

    I will say that Derby Premiums in my GC Jaws took my overgrown sideburns down to DFS in one swipe. I'll try them on the rest of my face tomorrow. That having been said, the worst blade I used is the Merkur. Awful.

    I took down my sideburns today, and used a Derby Premium in my GC Jaws for that (1 use), then switched to a Nacet in my 6C plate 5 (1 use).

    Which blade did you toss today? After how many uses?

    Dorco Prime Platinum (4). Got a couple of weepers, so time for it to go. Last one lasted 5 though, so on track I guess.

    Good inexpensive blade that gives a smooth shave

    Dorco Prime Platinum. Dirt cheap in North America, and a great blade. Of course, YMMV as with any blade, but they work well for me in every one of my razors I've tried it in, GC .68 and .84, Rockwell 6C with plates 4,5, and 6, and my Progress. Haven't tried it in my Mamba yet, or my Qshave...
