This was the third day I used my Feather AS-D2 razor with a Feather blade. This combination gave me a nice, smooth shave. I did my usual four-pass shave and the result was a perfect shave. Today’s brush is a Rudy Vey creation: the B&B 2022 Contributors’ brush. I love the color and shape of the handle. I am using the Haslinger soap for the seventh consecutive day. The soap performs great but the scent is gone. The soap had remained unopened for several years. A perfect BBS shave.

Sunday Schick Shave, May 5th 2024

Razor : Schick E2 injector, Canadian Variant. Mfg 1930s-40's, mid range. One of the best razors Schick ever manufactured IMO. When it comes to stamping out razor parts Schick seems to have taken it to a new level for that time period IMO. This is one of my favorites, if you have a busy life this would be a razor to purchase, quick rinse and let to dry is all that is needed and once in a while take a tooth brush to give a cleaning if it bothers a person. I modified mine to manually install blades & still use the injector blade injector magazine if preferred + much easier to thoroughly clean like the E1 variant was made. Had a close comfortable close shave this morning.
Blade : Schick injector(AKA=SChick) (7) sharp and smooth with great longevity.
Soap : Speick stick. Nice mild spicy scent with some of the best lather qualities I have ever used IMO.
Brush : Yaqi "Ferrari" 24mm bleached boar bristle. Excellent lather generator, soft split end boar bristle hairs, nice splay scrubber + great lather painter.
Pre shave : (Dedicated Cashmere synthetic)Brush wash whole face with CeraVe hand bar cleanser with a dollop of clear Aloe Vera on the cleaned beard area.
Prep : Cold water rinse after each pass of 2 + pickups. WTG + ATG + pickups.
Post shave : Nivea refreshing lotion + a dollop of CeraVe moisturizing lotion(scentless).
Results : Dial 9.5.jpg or CCS,DFS,BBS + no irritation + no weepers=:a17: Had a close comfortable shave this morning with my Schick E2 injector with a SChick blade

Have some great shaves!
Sunday Morning Shave Soiree

I am thoroughly disappointed in these Ted Pella Injector blades. They did not perform well in my
Vintage PAL and now did not do well in the HydroMagic. I got through the shave and you can call it
the high end of a DFS but on a third use I expected better. Replaced with a Hills Platinum Chrome blade and we'll see if that makes a difference tomorrow.

May 5, 2024 Sunday shave

Razor: Karve Overlander, brass
Blade: Personna Lab Blue (2)
Soap: Cella red
Brush: Yaqi 24mm Silvertip badger (4)
Bowl: Captain's Choice Heavyweight copper
Post shave: Osma alum block, Thayer's Witch Hazel
Aftershave: Old Spice Original

This was an easy and comfortable three pass shave. No weepers, etc. and no irritation.
Once again, the Overlander / Personna Lab Blue combination is excellent.

Enjoy your day!
