Reused previous-day lather. Still good enough and hate to waste the small amount of precious sample.
Finally found a good blade pairing with this razor's F-plate. Really smooth and comfortable for 3passes even for the most sensitive atg pass in the chin and lips area. The awesome result of the F-plate & blade painting was mostly BBS. Unfortunate to realize 2 tiny red spots later. Excellent aftershaves...Rating 9.8/10
