Single Edge Sunday - What Will You Use?

It is very well made and the plating appears to be heavy. When I first saw these I imagined them as thin and cheap. Quite the opposite! I expect that they went to the bakelite handle to reduce costs.

I had the same impression and was very pleased to be proved wrong when my D showed up.

Shave 20191201

Prep/Pre-shave: Neutrogena wash then apply Cremo
Brush: Yaqi 24mm Cashmere
Bowl: Savannah Shaving Scuttle
Soap: Saponificio Varesino Dolomiti
Razor: Occam's SE Razor, Mild Head

WTG, ATG plus some buffing and XTG touch--up.

SAS/CCS using just the Occam's w/mild (one dot) head.

Brought out my trusty GEM Featherweight with Ted Pella GEM blade to touch-up and buff. I got the shave to a solid DFS+ but did not want to push it any further.

The combined shave had no nicks, cuts or weepers - some minor irritation.

The mild (one dot) head on this razor is way tool mild and restrained, even for me.

Occam's Razor w/one dot head: 7.5/10

Final result after buffing and touch-up with GEM Featherweight: 9+/10
