So after my exile from wet shaving, I dug out my Semogue 1305 and some Proraso Blue... I've had it for several years and thought I would have forgotten how to use it after three years of being off the reservation. Nope, it lathered just like I remembered. Since I have had a beard since the summer of 2015, I only needed to shave my neck. One pass with a touch up here and there got me feeling fresh and clean. Who else has a Semogue 1305 and loves it?
