Nice mid-strength scent from the soap. Quality was acceptable...perhaps should have loaded the brush longer...
Shave with razor paired with the new blade was surprisingly very good for 3passes. Really enjoyed the smooth, comfortable, and crisply sharp edge, especially the atg pass on trouble area...for a mostly bbs result. Excellent aftershaves. The Witchhazel BayRum is strong and gives a good nice burn plus I can smell it more than the Gents Gin.

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.
This is hysterical. I looked at your photo and asked myself: "Why did he write WIHS on his blade?" :out:
