Hullo aw youse B&Bers, (translation from Glaswegian to American: "Hi all y'all B&Bers") On a whim, I thought that after 2½ years of fun at B&B I'd start a journal. My idea is just to report new (to me) things, or stuff that I particularly notice, but not a daily journal. MINI INTRO Less than two months into DE shaving I discovered my first love, the magical Fatip Piccolo: My original DE intention was saving money (the cartridge conundrum)... Hey, OK, you've heard that one before. I now have far too many razors, but the Piccolo is still my favorite (even though I've been flirting with different handles for it recently). REPORT OF THE DAY Blades continually amaze (and amuse) me. Today was my first shave with a Bic Chrome Platinum blade. (After moving on from a 28 shave old Polsilver SI) I found the Bic to be extremely sharp and extremely smooth. Whether that's due to moving on from a "broken in" blade or not I don't know. I'll update on that once I get some more Bic experience. ^ My Fatip Tortoise with its hamster guard.
