    I had a great shave this morning with my Schick type E injector filled with a new Chick blade. Used one of my own Doug Korn Workshop Custom Shaving Brushes and Cella SS. I finished the shave off with a mix of witch hazel and a dab do Gold Bond healing lotion.... Smooth and clean ready for another smocking-hot day.
