Have some great shaves!
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.
It's Sunday once again and I took out another favorite GEM, my 1912 model(MFG in 1920's according to Waits razor book). This razor is a excellent tool that most should have in anyone's razor rotation IMO.
