Razor: Schick J1 type injector-MFG 1957-64, milder mid range, easy to move around the face, easy under the nose to shave.

So I took my new brush for a spin at face lathering today. Oh man oh man. What a feeling to build the lather with this soft brush and some warm water. It just felt magical to be struck with that “wall of Badger” that so many others have described. Ok, so I got a bit of water and thin lather everywhere this first time around, but live and learn. Took out one of my favorite vintage razors, my 1938 Gillette Senator for a great shave.

The R41 is a beast of a razor that delivers a very close and smooth shave. Love this razor and will certainly get a SS version next year. 3 passes delivered a truly enjoyable BBS shave.
