A superb shave! The planets certainly aligned today. What a team! :biggrin:

A BIG THANK YOU to @GermanShaver! for keeping the "One Blade in February" challenge going this year. I'm always looking to improve my technique and OBIF has always been a great help to me.

It's also fun to join such a mixed bunch of shavers here each year. Thank you all y'all. :001_cool:


Happy shaves guys. :cornut:

*The quest for a pre-shave continues.
This stuff seems to work, too, at least
to enhance closeness. Plus I have a lot of it,
as well as two liters of the gel I've been using.
Don't see myself running out any time soon, though
I'll probably break down and at least try a PAA Cube,
as well as some Grooming Department pre-shave.

Such an adventure, as I prove to myself
what others have been trying to tell me.
Nothing like doing things the hard way!

Stay healthy, everyone!

Another great shave. This razor just rocks - out-performs anything else I’ve tried. My WR1 should be concerned. 10/10
