This is the second shave with a Feather AS-D2 razor paired with a Feather blade. For me, this combo works great and it gave me a perfect shave. The da Vinci brush performed as expected. This is the 119th shave with MdC. A perfect shave. Have a great day.

Sunday Schick shave, May 28th 2023

Razor : Schick E2 injector, Canadian variant - Mfg 1930's - 40's, mid range, well made to last many generations with a little care.
This is one of my favorite injectors, very nimble and its a nice change up every week to use a injector. Had a close shave this morning.
Blade : Personna SS PTFE (7) sharp and smooth with excellent longevity.
Soap : Razorock Don Marco, nice citrus scent strength 5/10 with excellent lather qualities.
Brush : Yaqi " Purple haze" 24 mm synthetic, excellent lather generator, cloud like soft tips, nice gentle scrubber + excellent 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 : Italian barber(Razorock) Amici with witch hazel + a dollop of CeraVe moisturizing lotion(scentless).
Results : 1-10 dial - Copy (2)3 template 9.5.jpg or CCS,DFS,BBS + no irritation + no weepers=:a17: Excellent shave this morning with my Schick E2 with a coated Personna blade.

Have some great shaves!
Pre-shave: Saponificio varesino "Burro di Ilipé"
Brush: AD Works "Consul"
Lather: Tabula Rasa "Cardamom"
Razor: 1950s Gillette "Tech" (made in England)
Blade: Treet "Classic"
Witch hazel: Thayers "Lavender"
Alum block: Osma
After shave: Alt Insbruck
Face cream: Neutrogena "Hydro Boost"


Cream: Jack Black Beard Lube
Razor: 1947 Knockout [made in Sheffield]
Blade: Gillette 7o'clock Black (5)
ASL: Orange FREEZE [home brew]

An excellent shave. :biggrin:

Well, the Knockout is still my top favorite closed comb razor; so the Athena has come in at second place.

The main points where the Knockout beats the Athena (for me) are:
  • Its superior waste drainage system (used lather and cut whiskers go directly under the blade, all the way to the other side of the razor [less messy and less need to flip the razor from side to side so often between rinses])
  • It's much more nimble and easy to maneuver (partly due to its light weight: 26.6 grams loaded)
  • The blade to handle angle is bigger, i.e. closer to 90° (so it's easy to shave steep [without the handle touching the face/neck all the time])
I love my Knockout. :w00t:

Happy shaves guys. :cornut:
