    005CFA50-87B0-4FF8-84D4-A8D60F87E525.jpeg Well third time is the charm so I reached for another Merkur and this time the 37C slant came to hand. I have been on a run of modern razors as opposed to my vintage Gillette choices and quite enjoying them. The slant is an exceptional shaver and though I also have a 39C, I enjoy the weight and balance of the 37C more. Started with the Proraso pre-shave and lathered up with the TFS Corte Sabauda with the matching AS. Fantastic 3 pass shave!!

  6. Nice! I'm on a TFS kick right now. It's such good soap. The DiVino soap today was incredible. I haven't had a shave this good in a long time.
