Such a shame that Schick no longer manufactures their blades in Holland. Both the Platinum and S/S are great blades and enhance the performance of the Razor they are in. A really nice Shave today but the Type F is always smooth and comfortable irrespective of the blade being used.
Razor: Treet - Baton Handle (Blue) Blade: GEM (Personna) PTFE (6) Brush: Spiffo - D'rargo (Manchurian Two-Band SHD-Fan) 24mm Pre-Shave: Innisfree - Green Tea Foam Cleanser Lather: Barrister and Mann - Sandalwood (Soft Heart) Aftershave: Wholly Kaw Man From Mayfair (toner)
I’m so blue...I deserve a Treet
Another evening shave tonight. I’m beginning to like late shaving.
These Treet baton handle razors are the only ones that come with a closed bar, clog Pruf type head instead of the usual GEM type closed comb. I really like the way they fit to my face. Always a nice smooth BBS.
The Soft Heart soap laid out the red carpet and the Man from Mayfair added a touch of class.
Thu 15th SE SOTD Soap Proraso Green Brush Yaqi 24mm Mountain Lake Razor Yaqi AC Brass Blade Feather ProGuard 12th Post & Aftershaves Ice Water + Stirling Witchhazel MitA + Hyaluronic + Proraso Green Splash & Balm
Really missed this soap. It was super wonderful!! A very nice and enjoyable scent, cooling sensation, creamily thick and good slick lather...just marvelous!!
Another great shave with the razor paired with the 12th used blade. Super smooth and very comfortable for 3passes without any issues for a glass-like bbs finish. The well-used blade remains efficient. Wonderful aftershaves to capped a thoroughly magnificent shave session.
Second day with the katana and a kcg now with a heavier metal handle.
It shaves a bit better still a bit to agressive for my taste. Maybe I need to match it with an other blade.
But the puppy has a serious blade exposing grinn
The good stuff as expected relative small for tight spots under the nose etc
The shave: Traditional WTG/XTG/ATG for a BBS shave. That Wickham 1912 Soap is a serious performer, good scent, beautiful lather, and my skin feels great. The Vector continues to prove how magical @Blackland Razors design and manufacturing tolerances are, just spectacular in every measure.
Enjoy your day and stay motivated!
OneBlade Genesis / GEM (3rd) - First two passes, but just wasn't cutting it this morning

Seems like lathering using a really slick soap results in subpar shaves with my OneBlade Genesis, at least with the last couple of GEM blades I'm modified. (Blades do sit against the stops and lay flat). If I 'cheat' and use Barbasol, it shaves closer. I'll try going back to an Feather FHS for the next shave with the Genesis.
