Shave 20191108

Razor: RazoRock Black Hawk - V2
Blade: Feather AC (3)

Tried a simple two pass shave, WTG and ATG. Definitely SAS/CCS territory. Added an XTG over my whole face and then another halfway XTG/ATG. Wow!

Really nice shave - wife approved.

DFS++/BBS. One very minor weeper under my nose. Minor irritation.

9+/10
 
SOTD Nov 09-2019, Having a little fun with this Enders speed razor and today was a excellent day for a great shave it produced. Having a little Gem and Schick experience that comes into hand Technique with the Enders it can produce a excellent shave with a Ender's blade carrier(Jararuh's idea at TSD). The razor is nimble and a different experience when shaving because I basically engineered my shave feel and not some one else to get MY desired results. Once the carrier is set to your shave it is just shaving 101 for the next round with same settings as before + a historical OPEN COMB razor brought back into service!

Blade : Schick proline B20(1) with a Enders blade carrier modified to hold the B20

Sunday shave Nov 10-2019 and it will be with a Ender's speed razor that has been out of production for some time.
This one has been revived from storage from decades of not getting the proprietary blades that were designed to use in this razor only. The razor is using a Schick pro line B-20 blade with a modified Enders blade carrier acting as blade retainer in tandem. For 1930's> this razor has space age design, is a well thought out razor and it can shave well with a modern sharp edge and the handle is a joy to use.

Razor: Enders Speed model - MFG1930's >
Blade: Schick proline B-20 with a Enders blade support carrier.
Soap : TOBS Sandal wood
Brush : Razorock Noir 400
Preshave: Brush wash the face with CeraVe hand bar soap + A Dollop of clear Aloe Vera gel to beard area.
Post shave : Dickinson's witch Hazel
Post shave: Proraso red Sandal wood aftershave + Nivea balm
Results : CCS,DFS,BBS + aftershave indicated minor irritation + 1 weeper= :biggrin1:
