Just as a tip, if you guys, or girls even, wanna try a nice sweet, powdery, warm and woody scent, try out the one i used today, it was a complete blind-buy, and it is so cheap, and it can easily compete with some of those 100$+ scents!!! And i think this one is like 10$ I would call it unisex, cause i'm pretty sure a beautiful woman can pull this off as well, driving your man or woman insane ;) I'm just saying, we got men on this board, who as late as of yesterday, was getting turned on, by an Old Spice Shaving Mug :lol: so it would definitely work :p ;) (You know who you are) ;)

Lord on the bottom...Gillette takes the top
Today I reversed the shim (de-edged Lord) and gave it the bottom spot. This will very slightly increase the blade gap while stiffening the Gillette to double its thickness. I do believe that a lot of “rough” shaves are really caused by flexing or chatter from the extremely thin DE blades. Although I’ve always had great shaves from my mild Black Tip, I believe that shimming it raised the bar for efficiency and closeness. Not only did I obtain a BBS faster than usual, the extra backing of the blade definitely causes it to run smoother and truer across my skin leaving no sensation of any kind of blade work on my post shave face.

I’m definitely going to try shimming the blade gap on the “M” plate of my ATT Windsor.
