This was supposed to be a cream but turned into a croap. The scent used to be very nice but now is much subdued. The lather quality is very good though. Nice sheen, creamy and good slickness.
Shave with razor paired with the well-used blade was ok but can be retired. Managed 3passes without any issues for a dfs result. Good enough! Rating 9.5/10

>> The mysterious KAI blades <<

Preshave: frigid tap water
Brush: Semogue TSN 2020 LE Silvertip Badger
Soap: Martin de Candre ~ Agrumes
Razor: Mühle Rocca R94
Blade: KAI (15)
Post shave: frigid tap water, Proraso ~ Azur Lime EdC.

With shave no. 15 in the books the time has come to gracefully retire this blade. I am sure I could quench one or two more shaves out of this blade, but I guess it is smarter to jump of the wagon one shave prior to having to regret it.

This blade provided a series of very good shaves (and some stunning ones, too) on a very constant level (regarding the first dozen of shaves).

Have some great shaves!
