A relaxing sunday morning shave.

The blade & razor was another great duo mowing through my stubble effortlessly. I've finally figured out the right amount of shaving cream to use when whipping up a lather. In the past i've been left with enough lather for another 6 shaves!

Another comfortable 3 pass + pick ups DFS/near BBS shave with no errors to report.

Ah quite pleased with tonight’s shave.
Got very close to a BBS doing just one pass with touch ups. I have been shaving every 24 hrs now and my face is getting used to it. Probably because I’m using higher quality soaps and this razor is very forgiving and not really aggressive. ...... All the best, Gents.

Super nice creamy and slick lather from this cheap cream. Can feel just some menthol on face and very mild scent.
Shave with FB with blade combo at max setting 9 was very comfortable and smooth with 3 multiple passes. Went for another pass under jawline & neck just because it felt so good & comfy...and being greedy, caught some weepers...hahahaha..after 12 shaves using these Czezh blades finally some weepers. Between BBS to DFS and rating 8.5/10
