Razor: Merkur 34HD gold
Blade: Glillette 7 o'clock Super Platinum India black 4th use - retired
Brush: Simpson Eagle G3
Soap: Vitos Extra Super Coco
Post: generic Witch Hazel, Mennen Musk
Result: DFS - barely

I really wanted to make this blade work. So today I did some prep, used a tallow base and bowl lathered. The result was still only average with a lot of clean ups so in the end I binned it. The AS I found by chance on AZ, not sure if it is French or Belgian. Nice sweet musk scent and my face feels soft and smooth with no sticky/oily residue.
