Maiden voyage with New Sabre! I used the same blade I've been using in my micromatics (Gem PTFE). So, this was the 4th shave on this blade. i didn't want to risk a dud blade on the maiden voyage. This was probably a good call. That said, the blade is toast after 4 shaves for me. Back to the Sabre. What a cool razor. The angle is a bit more finnicky than the GEM razors, but it's doable. I thought it did great for my first time. It's nice and maneuverable under the nose. I just feel cool using this. It has a nice heavy feel. Loading isn't too hard. Threading the weird post was easy. I'm glad i bought the stand for it. Soap Commander Recreation. I've been on the fence about this scent, but decided to go for it today since it's a summer soap, and it's HOT out. Shaved great. I'm glad it went back into the drawer and out of the short term office storage. Myrsol Don Miguel. This is a scent for which I searched for many years. It's just like the Viburnum bush outside my office. Beautiful floral scent. Fades pretty quickly, but that's okay. Light florals are fleeting. Used the Infinity again. Great brush. Solid. Nice stiff, but not pokey knot. I didn't "need" an $86 brush, but I'm glad I treated myself. The shape and knot setting lend themselves to my technique. Today was a 9/10 because I was new to this razor, and the blade was nearly shot. Excited to use this razor tomorrow.
