Apparently the Brass'Bird is no longer available! Great razor.

Shave #260, a day off and looking for something different for a leisurely shave with the MMOC. Imagepipe_54.jpg

Friday 17th September, shave #260.

Preshave: Hot washcloth
Soap: MWF
Brush: Men-U boar
Razor: GC.68 OC, Astra SP #5
Post-shave: Nivea Balm.

Back to the open comb Game Changer, and an easy DFS. It's a good trade-off of efficiency and comfort. I might have to rethink my preference for safety bar razors.
 
Saturday 18th September, shave #261.

Preshave: Hot washcloth
Soap: MWF
Brush: Men-U boar
Razor: GC.68 OC, Astra SP #6
Post-shave: Nivea 2-Phase Lotion.

Stayed with the open comb, did a thorough 2-pass, and got an excellent result with no irritation.

If I could only keep one Game Changer, I'd have a hard time choosing between this and the safety bar .68.

Monday 20th September, shave #263.

Preshave: Hot washcloth
Soap: MWF
Brush: Men-U boar
Razor: GC.68 OC, Wizamet SI #4
Post-shave: Nivea Balm.

Put a used Wizamet in the open comb Game Changer, and it worked fine. If somebody else was loading, I probably couldn't tell a Wizamet from an Astra SP.

I'd know soon enough if they loaded an Astra SS, though...
