Beautifully crafted soap! The scent is superb, the lather is creamy and slick. Really love this soap.
Shave with razor paired with the blade was much better than the GC 0.84-P. Amazing! Very smooth and comfortable during the 3passes without any issues at all for a glass-like result. A very close shave. Rating 10/10!!!

>> "One blade in February"- challenge <<


Preshave: frigid tap water.
Brush: Omega Hi-Brush 46138
Soap: Haslinger ~ Schafsmilch
Razor: Gillette Slim (on setting 7)
Blade: Gillette Wilkinson Sword China (24)
Post shave: frigid tap water, Nivea 2in1 AS, Nivea Cool psb.

Shave no. 24.
All good things come to an end, they say. It's been the final shave with the chinese made Gillette Wilkinson Sword!

My verdict: I am very impressed by the performance of this blade. She gave me plenty of excellent close and smooth shaves right from the start (approx. 18-20 shaves were absolutely flawless, than I had to increase passes).

The blade is a clear keeper in my books and I likely will stock some tucks once the ongoing sabbatical has been completed.

I'm going to switch blades now for the remaining shaves of this month to align my shaves (and my face) to "sharper" blades again...

The upcoming month of March will be exclusively dedicated to the mysteroius KAI blade (PIFed in line with the rules of the sabbatical). Looking forward to trying this blade (another new to me)...

Happy shaves!
