The H&S certainly qualifies.
Glad you like it! I've so far found the price of entry too high to explore those razors, which is rather fickle of me because I certainly have not been deterred by the cost of some others that I own. Plus there's that nagging truth that I don't need more razors, so it's taking bigger lures to draw me out of the reeds these days.
July High Efficiency SOTD
Brush: Shavemac 20/47 Silvertip 2-Band
Soap: Bignoli Liquirizia e Menta
Razor: RazoRock Lupo 95 GT Special
Blade: Shark Super Chrome (7)
ASL: Spearmint BLAST [home brew]
A good refreshing shave.
As much as I love my TFS soaps, I'm tempted to get another Bignoli (really nice stuff)... in a less polarizing scent.
Happy shaves guys.
They're all different (to me). Bignoli (for me) is really luxurious and creamy.

Blade: vintage Polsilver Stainless (4)
What a ride today. The ATT with H2 head is likely one of if not the most agressive razor in my den. It provides a whole lot of blade feel (similar to Mühle's R41) and it's merciless when it comes to mowing down the whiskers. Due to the head geometry/how the head bends the blade, it requires an extremely soft touch, as otherwise it'll bite. Therefore it's not a razor to choose if one has to catch the bus.
Nevertheless, it as a highly efficient razor and though the blade feel is pronounced it doesn't feel scrapy. I like it, even though the shaving comfort is a tad reduced in comparision to other razors.
I just might need to have some more spins with this razor in order get used to it better. An increase of shaving comfort might be a likely result.
Needed 2 passes only to get an almost bbs face feel. One nick (too much pressure applied), but no irritation.
Happy shaves, y'all!
It's Shavemac Synthetic 26/54.Shavemac synthetic? How do you like it?
It's Shavemac Synthetic 26/54.
It's got quite some backbone, so it doesn't splay super easy - but it provides a nice scrub. The tips are soft.
Overall, it's a brush that might be liked by those who basically prefer boar brushes over badger brushes.
It lathers soaps easily.
