Good day, Sir! May I ask if there is a shim out there, in your razor, to help accommodate a standard GEM blade? I'm talking about the orange thing. Thank you.

It's Fall Week / SEPTEMBER

Prep: P.A.A. Cube 2.0 (face wash)

Razor: Occam's O.R.E.N. 24k gold dipped (Level 3)
Blade: Feather Professional Artist Club ProGuard Blade

Soap: Stirling Soap Co. Haverford
Brush: Omega Boar 10005/80005
Bowl: Bluff Cove Pottery

Post 1: P.A.A. Alum w/ No-Slip Grip System w/ Dry Dock System
Post 2: Dickinson's Enhanced Witch Hazel Deep Cleansing Astringent w/ Menthol & Eucalyptus
Aftershave: Pinaud Clubman Classic Vanille
Post 3: Neutrogena Hydro Boost Gel-Cream Extra-Dry w/ Hyaluronic Acid

For today's shave I stepped the O.R.E.N. up to level 3. This was a wise choice. The blade feel increased to a noticeable level but was not excessive. It was at a nice enjoyable level. Again the razor felt really smooth and seamed to cut without any resistance. Being that I'm new to this razor and A.C. blades in general, I don't know if this inherent to the blades or this razor. More experience is needed.

I did a three-pass shave instead of four because I had better results with the O.R.E.N. on level 3 than on 2. I did a small bit of buffing against the grain on my face and earned a sweet bbs face.

The Stirling Soap Co. Haverford was beautiful as always in both performance and scent. To finish things off I went with my favorite of all Pinaud Clubman aftershaves, the wonderful Classic Vanilla.

And with all that said, another awesome shave is in the books.

Enjoy your Saturday my friends and shave on.
